Spa Trends of 2013
What are the hottest spa trends of 2013? This list of the top ten spa trends of 2013 covers healthy hotels, earthing and label-conscious fitness.
Top Spa Trends of 2010
The hottest trends in the world of spas right now include the rise of the hammam (an ancient ritual of cleansing and purification), wellness tourism, and -- lucky you -- more great spa deals through 2010.
Spa Trends of 2009
As the economy crashed late in 2009 so did spa prices -- even as casino spas were getting more lavish and over-the-top. In the treatment room, people tried energy medicine as a way to restore their shattered spirits.
Spa Trends of 2008
The spa buzz was all about finding "star therapists" (like celebrity chefs and farmers) and a return to spa's hydrotherapy roots, especially in the fabulous "hydrothermal garden" at The Banyan Tree Spa in Bahrain.
Spa Trends of 2007
Spas saw the rise of "green" spas with bamboo floors and resort spas acted more like destination spas, offering special spa retreats. "Destaffed" treatments didn't require a therapist - you slathered mud on yourself at a mud bar.
Spa Trends of 2006
In 2006 spas were expanding at both ends of the price spectrum, with discount chains and luxury spa suites both expanding. It was also the year men got everything from their own private men-only suites to extreme boot camps.
Spa Trends of 2005
People were talking about "living at the spa" with residential properties like Canyon Ranch Living in Florida, aimed at healthy (and wealthy) aging boomers and retirees. And the bling factor was everywhere -- spa products even had diamonds in them!
