Wellness: Physical, Emotional & Spiritual*

Wellness, being a combination of physical, emotional and spiritual health, is that special "place" sought after by many visitors to Adventure Guide.   This page is intended to offer just a few sources, in random order, of information to help you gain knowledge, to stimulate your thinking, and to recommend journeys to destinations that may help you discover a more peaceful state, known to some as Nirvana. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. "Marianne Williamson 
A new beginning!

"According to the World Health Organization, "Health is more than the absence of disease. Health is a state of optimal well-being." Optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness to one of achieving wellness. Many of us have been brought up to believe that our health depends solely on the quality of the healthcare we receive. The truth is, your health is your responsibility. You are the only person who can make the lifestyle decisions that contribute to your well-being. You are the one who must take the steps to preserve your health and promote your wellness.  Only you have the power to create wellness for your power lies in the choices you make every day on your own behalf. Your behavior and the choices you make in your life affect your health. You can choose to do more of what's good for you and the world around you, and to do less of what is harmful. You can choose to learn more about your health and the variety of healthcare options available. All of us have incredible inner wisdom. As you gather information and experience, you will gain confidence in using your inner knowing to follow your path to wellness."

One of the greatest challenges for health or wellness tourism is also an opportunity. While there is currently some awareness about the wellness segment of the travel industry, it is limited and sketchy. Potential consumers are both unclear as to this segment's breadth and depth, and have rising expectations that may or may not be merited.  Consequently, educating the growing number and types of consumers about wellness, spas and medical tourism is both a challenge and an opportunity. Guiding their expectations will also assure industry success over time.
