We are delighted that Dr Chase Webber has joined Constance as our new Corporate Spa Manager. We’ll be publishing a series of articles from him over the coming weeks, looking at how you can improve your wellbeing as well as how to get the most from the spa treatments on offer.
In the first of our articles, Chase gives you some insight into his vision, and what you can expect from your Constance spa experience over the coming months.
Hi I am Dr Chase Webber ND, the Corporate Spa Manager. I qualified as a Naturopathic Doctor in 1996 and have been involved in the field of natural medicine, wellness and spa since 1990 where I started my internship in one of the original health spas called The Hydro in Cape Town, South Africa.
In the early 1990s the only spa or “hydros” were a type of retreat where you went for 1 week, were placed on a juice fast, received a daily Swedish massage and hydrotherapy. Hotels at that time had at most a swimming pool and a tennis court. At that time I dreamt of a day that we could combine a wonderful vacation destination and at the same time improve our wellbeing through the natural therapeutic methods we used in the hydro.
Spa holidays in the 21st century
Over the last 20 years the hotel industry has slowly developed in this direction with more and more interested in providing a real spa facility and services for their guests while on vacation.
During these years I became more involved as a consultant for many hotel groups to bring my knowledge in creating more authentic spa environments, treatments, products and services. Some of the major hospitality groups I have worked with over the years include One&Only, Kempinski Hotels, Veranda Hospitality & Leisure and now with Constance Hotels & Resorts.
Kick-starting change on holiday
I am always inspired to bring a sense of fusion to the hotel environment where during your holiday, the perfect environment and time can be used to naturally improve health and wellbeing. In my opinion a holiday is the perfect time to allow the body to naturally find its balance, heal internally and recharge in energy to become prepared for another bout of the modern life. It is always my objective to provide options for each guest to find what they need to embrace this natural need for rest and recovery.
My vision for Constance
My vision for Constance Hotels & Resorts is to update the spa treatments, services, product offerings and experience to provide a more authentic wellbeing effect whilst at the same time feeling completely easy and fun. I aim to provide experiences in our spas that are deeply therapeutic yet are simple and enjoyable.
We all want life and our experiences to feel enjoyable, light, easy and inspirational – I believe wellbeing can be the same, we can achieve health and vitality whilst having fun and enjoying every minute in a beautiful environment.
This will be the future for Constance Hotels & Resorts spa’s: inspiring experiences so enjoyable and yet so beneficial that during your vacation you feel your wellbeing blossom – a feeling of Joie de vivre returns naturally.
