Ayurveda -- the "science of life" -- is becoming one of the fastest-growing trends in the spa industry, with more facilities offering treatments that incorporate the traditional Indian approach to wellness. "Spas worldwide have incorporated a fusion of Western and Eastern therapies due to the potency of the traditional treatments," said Sharon Codner, regional director of Hong Kong's Peninsula Spa. "Ayurvedic therapies are destined to increase by 60% as people become more aware of alternative health and well-being."
