Washington Spa Alliance Sets 6th Annual Symposium Themed
“The New Language of Spa” on Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Registration site is live with limited seating

WASHINGTON, D.C. – December 4, 2015 – Washington Spa Alliance (WSPA) is set to host its 6th Annual Symposium in Spring 2016. The interactive day-long event, whose audience will include local, regional, national and international leaders in spa and allied disciplines, will take place at the National Press Club on Tuesday, March 22nd, from 9:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.

“This year’s theme is The New Language of Spa,” reports Mary Bemis, WSPA Board Member and Symposium Chair. “Spa is, and has always been, a very specific path toward healing and rejuvenation. For a time it got lost in the sort of vague feel-good of wellness. But spa is back, and it’s both real and specific. The 6th Annual Symposium will be devoted to exploring the ‘cutting-edge’ of both ancient and new practices,” Bemis notes.

Reservations can be made on a first-come basis at: Cost for the day-long program, including luncheon and breaks, is $125 for WSPA members and $200 for non-members which is inclusive of annual membership dues.

This gathering of spa leadership will continue a national conversation designed to inspire the spa community to advance a human agenda of health and well-being. Washington Spa Alliance is a knowledge center, connecting spa professionals in the nation’s greater Capital region. The group works to promote the exchange of innovation in the field and to ensure the highest spa ideals are met through policy and action. Americans increasingly have turned to spas to learn the importance of diet and exercise, the benefits of organic plant-based diets, to redefine ideas of beauty and wellbeing, and to learn techniques of stress-reduction and preventive medicine.

Following the most recent Symposium, held in March 2015, members of WSPA and regional spa organizations nationwide expanded WSPA’s message when they visited with congressional leaders on Capitol Hill to address how the spa industry can support the nation’s overall move to a healthier lifestyle.
