The UAE joins 50 countries across the world for this one day celebration and Dr Nasim Ashraf, Global Wellness Day Ambassador for the UAE and Founder, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of the DNA Center for Integrative Medicine & Wellness says, “In recent years, we have seen a shift in people looking for ways to achieve balance in their lives both physically and spiritually. Global Wellness Day is a celebration of living well with the fundamental purpose to make us stop and think – even for one day – and get away from the stress of city living and our bad habits. Our goal for hosting the first official celebration of Global Wellness Day in the UAE is to educate the community about good health practices and wellness.”
Earlier this month, the Global Wellness Institute predicted that wellness tourism will grow by more than 9 per cent per year to 2017, nearly 50 per cent faster than overall global tourism and the Middle East is set to lead this growth over the next two years. Dr Nasim continues, “The wellness sector has huge potential for growth in the UAE and it’s our aim over the next few years to help make the country a global wellness hub for the Middle East.”
Stephan Wagner, Director of Spa and Wellness at Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah, said: “We are proud to host the UAE’s inaugural Global Wellness Day at Talise Spa. Wellness and all aspects of a healthy lifestyle are supported at Talise Spa through spa treatments, wellness experiences and holistic group exercise.”
