Renews: Getting your zzzz's
When Spa Finder released its report on spa trends to look out for in 2007, one trend topping the list was sleep. With sleep having an impact on everything from appearance to weight to wellbeing, it seems like a natural fit with the spa - and spas everywhere are stepping up with ultra-relaxing treatments at hotels and resorts, relaxation lounges for a post-treatment nap at day spas and even sleep specialists at destination spas.
If adding one of those options isn't feasible, here's one that may be: Sleep Garden's new line of audio and video recordings designed for clients to take home to help them sleep better. The options include ZMovie, The Eternal Breath of the Spirit Sea, a 60-minute DVD which uses the rhythms of the Pacific Ocean to calm; ZMusic, a 60-minute CD of clinically-proven music that can be played softly at bedtime or the middle of the night; and ZYoga, a 50-minute DVD combining yoga moves, music and guided relaxation to help clients prepare for sleep.
The Sleep Garden titles are used in more than 20 countries. For more information, go to www.sleepgarden.com. The website is jam-packed with information on all the products, as well as reviews from a variety of newspapers and magazines.
