In the summer of 2002 this article, “New Spa Trends” ran in the Pulse Magazine, an ISPA publication. Raoul Andrews Sudre wrote this article which echoed similar nuances from an earlier article (Sense of balance, Skin Inc., 1999) he penned. He saw the spa shifting away from a medical environment towards a more holistic approach utilizing an East meets West philosophy. This article was one of the first “visionary” moments from Raoul as this series shows. His foresight into emerging trends continues to be echoed through countless publications across the industry.
