2009 In the context of the Spa Event 2009 in Zell/See, the European Health
& Spa Awards were granted for the first time on the ninth of June. The award
is the most distinguished honor of the industry; spas, treatments, and products
are critically and carefully examined, and undergo an extensive assessment involving
a catalog of criteria as well as a two-phase jury trial. The total value of the
awarded sum amounts to more than 30,000 Euro. The European Health & Spa Award
was awarded by the Agency for Health and Wellness. The primary goal of the
European HEALTH & SPA AWARD 2009 is to highlight the possibilities and trends
in the wellness industry and to present the change as well as quality of spa and
wellness companies and product innovation. notes organizer, Norbert Hintermayer.

Assessment in seven criteria
starting point for the jury review was a multi-faceted, comprehensive questionnaire.
The jury made the assessments according to six criteria and could award at most
five points in each category. Design and Technology, Offers and Service, Value/Benefit
(Productivity and Increased Efficiency), Cost Effectiveness, Sustainability, and
Creativity. Last but certainly not least, the personal impression and experience
in the spa, with the treatment or the submitted product - for which the jury could
award up to ten points - was of central significance.

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.
