Innovation: Introducing Marijuana Spa Treatments   

With the legalization of marijuana set for this summer in Canada, it is not surprising that wellness entrepreneurs are tapping into the cannabis market. Cindy Sovine, owner of Utopia All Natural Wellness Spa and Lounge in Denver, is opening America’s first ever, legal, “Cannabis Spa”. Her and other cannabis centred spas are offering everything from cannabis friendly fitness programs to massages with CBD oil to “hash baths” where teabags stuffed with cannabis leaves and other essences are used for deep healing soaks.

Design Inspiration: Celebrity Edge Takes Wellness to the Sea

This weeks biggest spa design story comes from the Celebrity Edge luxury cruise that has launched a full service spa with more amenities that most on-land spas can offer. Interior designer Kelly Hoppen developed a relaxing fusion of marble and taupe wood, a crystalarium, an infrared sauna, a turkish hammam bath, a halo therapy salt room, a rainfall room, a float zen zone, and even basket chairs to sway peacefully over the ocean. The spa menu itself is something to write home about, including the typical massage, facial and body treatments but also offering LED and galvanic BIOTEC treatments, boxing, barre, breath work, acupuncture and a juice bar. We anticipate a new trend in the cruise industry.
