An inside look into one of the industry’s most important days of the year—and what’s new in the spa world! Every summer the spa-elite descend upon NYC to find out what’s new and happening in our beloved industry. This season showed exceptional promise for the future—here’s what’s exciting in the world of wellness! Beautiful destination spa Mii Amo gave show attendees a taste of some of the spiritual healing guests can experience during a stay. We got to create our own “blessing ties,” which are used in Mii Amo’s newest spa treatment. These blessing ties are created to help people recognize and feel grateful for all of the blessings abundant in life. During the treatment, which includes a body and foot massage, guests will lie above their blessing ties to give gratitude. At the end, each guest releases their blessing. This mind-body treatment is a must-try! Eminence Organics, a luxury skincare brand found in many spas, hosted a fun build your own scrub station. We got to use ingredients like sweet orange, rose petals and hibiscus flower to create a scrub base. Then we added oil and some essential oils to create an exfoliating, moisturizing beauty product wonder! The Mayo Clinic debuted new healthy food options, which we can say first-hand were absolutely delicious. The vegetarian stir-fry is a perfect recipe to make in bulk! The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental demonstrated meditation and taught guests that it’s possible to achieve a zen state anywhere—even at a busy event! We can’t wait to see what the next ISPA Event has in store! Arielle Sidrane is the Associate Editor of Spa Week Daily.
