She is now an independent consultant; helping clincs and spas to maximise revenue and client loyalty by working directly with spas & clinic managers and training their teams. She was previously the Group Health & Wellness Director for Chiva Som destination Spa, recently voted again: ‘Best Spa in The World’.

Initially trained as an acupuncturist (a degree level training), Sarah is also qualified in massage counselling, nutrition, herbal medicine and allergy detection.

At Anti-Ageing Conference London, Sarah, will advise on the latest developments for medical and aesthetics practitioners, as well as spa and salon owners who want to add value in their business. In her lecture “The Art & science of Spa Success – How to open a holistic Spa; Integrating spa services into your clinic for profitability” she will discuss how spa medicine is becoming a dynamic force with the power to change the healthcare landscape and how you can incorporate this knowledge into your business.

Participants will gain an understanding of what is known as integral spa medicine which will give them an insight into:
• Enhancing their ability to see the whole, the parts and self as a whole and a part deepening the physician/patient/client relationship
• Increase their options to communicate and act with colleagues, clients and others at multiple levels simultaneously with deeper impact
• Strategically plan and move significantly beyond even current attempts in the medical spa arena variously known as “cosmetic centers,” “wellness centers,” and “integrative medical facilities”, operating from a platform much wider in its reach, more grounded in empirical research, and more effectively related to comprehensive models of advanced healing of body, mind and spirit
• Become leaders in global healthcare transformation

Dr Deepak Chopra MD, founder of The Chopra Center in California, is acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest leaders in the field of mind body medicine.

Dr Chopra, the author of over 43 books, has transformed the understanding of the meaning of health, through his creation of The Chopra Center for Well Being in 1995, which established a formal vehicle for the expansion of his healing approach using the integration of the best of western medicine with natural healing traditions.
Chopra’s work is changing the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellness. Formerly the Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, Dr Chopra built a successful endocrinology practice in Boston in the 1980’s.
Chopra realised in his medical practice that there was potential in western medicine for the establishment of a new life-giving paradigm, one which encompassed the fundamental principle that perfect health is more than just the absence of disease. He began to envisage a medical system based upon the premise that health is a lively state of balance and integration of body, mind and spirit. He is widely credited with melding modern theories of quantum physics with the timeless wisdom of ancient cultures. In 1992, he served on the National Institutes of Health Ad Hoc Panel on Alternative Medicine.

The 3rd AACL, which is being held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London from the 15-17 September 2006 is the only forum in the UK where both professionals and lay persons can learn about the latest advances in medicine and science.

At AACL delegates will hear from scientists and physicians on the latest medical advances, including what some may consider controversial, to the proven and new treatments for the diseases of ageing, as well as cosmetic and dental health, optimum nutrition, skin health, hormones, mind/body health and the latest developments in stem cell treatments.

FRSH, renowned for his work on toxicity problems in dentistry and holistic dental care; nutritionist and author Patrick Holford, who has examined the role diet plays in ageing; and Dr Bill Cham PhD, whose research into the use of plant extracts in skin cancer remission has produced new treatments for this disease.

What the hotel says about itself:

In the words of Harpers & Queen Abroad 2003:
“The spa epitomizes calm, traditional elegance. From the moment you discard your shoes at the door and are handed an iced flannel and a glass of cardamom tea, every aspect of the spa is designed to soothe the soul.”

The Oriental Spa was the first of its kind in Asia – and it’s still in a class of its own. It remains a temple of well-being for the many guests who indulge in its luxuries. Voted “The Best Spa in the World” by Travel & Leisure magazine, it is situated across the river from the hotel, in a traditional, Thai-style house of beautifully carved, golden teak wood.

As you enter this oasis of tranquillity, you will be taken aback by the soothing aroma that pervades the air. The serenity of the spa will calm your senses, in preparation for a myriad of beauty and relaxation treatments performed by professionals in the privacy of your own luxurious suite. Like the ever popular Oriental Massage, the Jet Lag Recovery Treatment or the Oriental Herbal Pack.
