In light of recent events, such as the UCLA shooting, the International Spa Association convention, the Beverly Hills edition, came at the right moment.
Their array of spa, aromatherapy, massage/tough therapy, and facials, spotlights the need for mental health that does not judgement or prescribe drugs.
Michael Conte, the Director of Spa & Wellness at Meadowood Napa Valley Spa, http://www.meadowood.com/, recognizes the importance of well-roundness therapy to re-balance the mind, body, and spirit.
“Our therapists are going to be taking a personal interest in our guests’ overall well-being. The overall Spa experience will be a blended harmony of therapy, indulging and education while offering a body, mind and spirit connection.”
At ISPA, he talked about a person's well-being as being a wheel sliced into segments like pie slices. At Meadowood Spa, they are there to fill in the missing slices to make you a balanced, whole person, not lop-sided and imbalanced.
Mental-Massage therapy doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, especially for stressed-out college students freaking out over finals, projects, and combatant classmates.
By refocusing on you, these array of spa therapies can help you get rid of external, toxic crud, so you can be of a clear mind.

Aspira Spa's Cedars Massage incorporates aromatherapy using fresh native cedar, an herb used by Native Americans to purify and protect. This soothing, balancing massage leaves you tranquil and serene. An aromatic blanket of fresh cedar is placed over the body at the end of the massage, emitting its clean, purifying scent.
With sage, this massage clears the mind and enables the person to visualize clearly what is important and what is just social peer pressure that is junking up the mind.
Remove the social peer pressure junk then replace with more clarity, more maturity, more empathy, add all these up and you'll get a well-balanced brain that is strong enough to resist all that mental junk.
ISPA went from indulgence to offering much necessary mental health and clarity on the day of the UCLA shooting.
Believe it or not, with mental balance and clarity, you'll insight of sympathy and empathy while outside of social peer pressure.
A whole lot of people would be way better off if they take the time out for mental health in the same way you go to the gym for external, superficial reasons.
Focusing on toning the inner mind is more important today than ever.
The International SPA Association highlights there are a variety of different mental therapy that do not judge and adapts to what your individual needs and wants, respectfully, sans drugs.
No pressure. No judgement. No drugs.
