Spas and Medicine are Becoming Partners

Our time has come. Prevention is “in.” What spas offer is “in.” Wellness is “in.” Part of the reason we have arrived at this place is because people are understanding the importance and cost savings of reducing stress and staying healthy. Another reason is the global economic crisis which has resulted in a government stimulus plan which has made health care reform a priority in the US.
I just spent two full days in Washington D.C. at the Summit on Integrative Medicine and The Health of the Public as a guest of Deborah Szekely’s. This very important meeting was held at the National Academy of Sciences and included many formidable speakers; Senator Tom Harkin, Dr. Mehmet Oz (of Oprah fame), Dr. Dean Ornish, Jon Kabat-Zinn and about 40 top medical professionals from around the country. It was a gathering of very smart and powerful people and I felt humbled to be able to listen to the ideas, take notes and at one point even share an insight.
That’s a problem.
Let’s talk about that in the next blog post.
