Spa Events in the News
British International Spa Association
at Professional Beauty Exhibition, ExCel London 2005
For those who visited the British International Spa Association
stand at Professional Beauty Exhibition, ExCel London, recently
it was no surprise that once again BISA are championing a number
of new developments for the spa industry. The BISA Waves Accreditation
Scheme is being enhanced to further its adoption world wide. A new
Sub-Committee within BISA now steers the developments associated
with the 6 WAVE Accreditation for spas and spa resorts. The Spas
Directory at www.thespasdirectory.com,
the official web based directory for the BISA Accreditation Scheme
is spawning a twin, www.spastradedirectory.com
exclusively for the industry suppliers and service providers. In
addition, in its "Water for Health" search criteria, the
Spas Directory now includes revitalised waters. This is water that
has its energy fields restructured, making it more beneficial for
bathing, self purification, solubility and softness. In the picture
taken on the BISA stand at ExCel, Peter Unruh of Moor @ Home (right)
talks with Dr Bruce Osborne (centre) about the merits of revitalised
water, assisted by Jeremy Jones (left) from Grander, the Austrian
company who have pioneered this "beyond the state of the art"
technology. For more information go to www.thespas.co.uk
and click on Water for Health on the menu.
In The Grand Spas of Central Europe, historian David Clay Large follows the grand spa story from Greco-Roman antiquity to the present, focusing especially on the years between the French Revolution and World War II, a period in which the major Central European Kurorte (literally, “cure-towns”) reached their peak of influence and then slipped into decline.
