300 attendees were at The
Canadian Spa Industry Conference and Trade Show presented by Leading Spas of Canada
on April 9-11, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia.
There were a lot of activities to choose from at any given time - speakers, demonstrations,
entertainment, wellness treatments, silent and live auctions, raffles, networking
opportunities and more. While there was a lot going on, the size was intimate
and allowed for a lot of opportunities to renew and make new contacts.
New Spa Research Results
were presented at the 2006 Leading Spas of Canada Conference in Vancouver. A joint
venture of the Canadian tourism commission, ISPA and Provincial/Regional tourism
agencies has produced an 84-page study that explores the unique characteristics
of the US and Canadian spa-traveller (as opposed to the spa-goer). The research
reveals the spa-traveller behaves quite differently than the spa-goer. While the
spa-goer generally approaches his or her dates at the spa as a key part of a long-term
health and wellness strategy, the spa-traveller is looking to splurge and indulge.
In vacation mode, the spa-traveller is motivated by various factors including
culture, history, cuisine, sightseeing and education. The full study,
Identifying the Spa Traveler: A Look at US and Canadian Consumer Attitudes
and Motivators for Spa Vacations (2006) can be found at CanadaTourism.com.
For this study, a "spa" was defined as an establishment that offers
at least two of the following three kinds of services: full body massage, skincare
treatments (such as facials), and body treatments (such as hydrotherapy or body
wraps and scrubs).

You can clean your home, fruits, vegetables and meats with the same 'Aqueous Ozone' that spas and other companies use. Tersano's ‘Aqueous Ozone’ Cleaning Systemt is the world's most effective chemical-free cleaner. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ quickly oxidizes (kills) viruses and bacteria (including E.coli, Salmonella, MRSA, C-Difficil), mold, mildew and other contaminants on any item or surface - from toilets to bedspreads - before changing safely back into water and oxygen. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ is 3000 times faster and 50% more powerful than bleach and chlorine-based cleaners. It is 100% chemical free - no toxins, carcinogens or chemical residue - and safe for babies, pets and people with sensitive skin or those with strong reactions to normal cleaners. ‘Aqueous Ozone’ has long been used in water treatment, food sterilization and medical therapies for its remarkable anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. It sounds too good to be true, but the data show how effective the system works.
I'm a believer.
