SUNNY ISLES BEACH, FL—Health is the new currency. Achieving a sense of well-being starts with regular exercise, proper rest and good eating habits, but it doesn’t end there. With life moving at a rapid clip precipitated by advances in technology, consumers are seeking out opportunities to recharge, relax and unplug from the day-to-day stresses.
At the Acqualina Resort & Spa, based here, the hotel’s on-site spa practitioners follow a holistic approach to wellness and have recently launched a series of interactive and educational workshops—led by experts—which are designed to be an immersive and transformative experience for guests and locals alike.
“You have to practice what you preach and if you don’t take the reins of your own life, no one will do it for you. Whether it’s fitness or reading a book, you need to shut the world off and have some quiet,” said Jocelyn Farmer, spa director, Acqualina Spa by ESPA. “If you know what your body needs, you need to listen and educate others.”
