Wine lovers flock to Tuscany's Val d'Orcia to sample Italy's Brunello wine made from plump Sangiovese grapes, but sipping is not the only way to savor these prized wine grapes.
In a hedonistic ritual Bacchus would approve of, guests at the Adler Thermae Spa Hotel may book one of the vinotherapy treatments and bathe in the local wine — literally — after having been massaged with a grape-infused oil.
Not too long ago, a spa treatment might end with a post-massage glass of wine or a cocktail.
Wine, beer and spirits aren't just for drinking anymore. Spas are turning them into restorative elixirs, spiking a variety of relaxing treatments.
It's always 5 o'clock at the following spas, where intoxication comes without the hangover.
Composed of spa and wellness industry leaders, a new hospitality and real estate company is set to launch a new collection of sustainable wellness resorts and communities. Led by former Canyon Ranch executive Kevin Kelly, Civana, the new brand, is designing its core offering around mindfulness, well-being and sustainability.

The beauty industry is constantly evolving, with new trends hitting the market every few months. While some trends seem to stay on and get easily picked-up, there are others that end up as memes, appearing to be pushing the envelope to the far extremes. Though these growing trends are a clear indication of the industry breaking away from the traditional standard of beauty, some trends without a doubt are straight-up horrific.
Not to take away the fact that these trends encourage experimentation as Dr. Gunjan Taneja Gaur, Executive Director at ALPS Beauty Clinic & Academies, puts, "They not only embark the idea of experimentation but also illustrate the acceptance of the new by the masses."
Soft tissue manipulation has proven itself to be beneficial for scoliotic conditions, and vacuum manual therapy is providing a valuable missing link in treatment protocols.
Adding this method of decompression aids the tissue by releasing deep patterns that hold the bony structure in a forward or sideways twist associated with conditions such as hyperkyphosis, hyperlordosis and scoliosis.

Did you know meetings can actually be productive? This is not fake news. As leaders, it is up to us to ensure all the meetings within our organization are an efficient and effective use of staff time. Just like employee surveys provide insight into organizational issues, a targeted assessment of meetings provides valuable data to address issues. The issues with meetings vary widely. For example, are there too many meetings that the sheer volume is wasting time?

It is easy to find MBA programs, seminars, conferences, books and podcasts teaching the various traits and characteristics of successful leaders. While many of us can use these tools, having those traits does not guarantee leadership success. Historically, having a strong work ethic or being a good leader has been associated with sacrifice. After all, claims of working long hours, weekends or into the night prove that an employee is committed to the organization, right?
Growing a business isn't easy. First, you need a viable idea. From there, you need to discover a profitable niche, define a target demographic and have something of value to sell them. Whether you're peddling products, services or information, getting the word out has become increasingly burdensome. And without the right marketing strategies to fuel your growth, churning a profit and staying afloat is virtually impossible.

At their heart, marketing and sales are about connecting. That means you always need to plug into your brand's humanity and authenticity. When you do that, you'll draw more people in, create stronger connections and ultimately sell more. Want to accelerate that process? Who wouldn't? By applying a few tried-and-true psychology principles, you can better understand and influence your followers. And best of all, these tips can be applied to any demographic.

Psoriasis is a chronic and relapsing inflammatory skin disease, clinically characterized by erythematous and scaly plaques. Treatment approach is mainly driven by disease severity, though several factors should be considered in order to identify the optimal therapeutic choice. Mild psoriasis may be treated with a wide array of topical agents including corticosteroids, vitamin D analogs, keratolytics, and calcipotriol/betamethasone propionate compound. Because guidelines may not provide practical indications regarding the therapeutic approach, the use of topical agents in psoriasis is more individually tailored.
In an increasingly digital world (or increasingly digital human experience anyway), rapid technology change is a fact of life.
And these threats aren't limited to business disruption, the safety of your data, or the digital footprint of your children. This kind of change also introduces significant threats to education.
There is likely very little that can be actively done to reduce these threats on a macro scale other than impact them financially as consumers, as they are first economic issues.
But we can begin to understand them better as teachers.
The Cavalier Daily
Teachers of early elementary grades play an integral role in the lives of their students. Regardless of the content of instruction, young students constantly absorb and interpret their teachers' actions. Most teachers are aware of the impact they have on their students, and tailor their methods to fit that premise. Some educators, however, fail to recognize the positive effect of adjusting their techniques to best foster a student's learning ability. Teachers of early grades should place a heavier emphasis on teaching students how to learn, rather than seeking to develop students' content-specific knowledge.
