Although advances in science, technology and medicine ensure that we live longer, are able to survive illness and diseases that would have killed us 100 years ago and are constantly enhancing our life and work styles, we are also suffering exponentially from the effects our consumerist lifestyle has on this planet and on ourselves.
As we are witnessing the rise of technology and science through human innovation and creativity, we are seeing the decline of our overall wellbeing, physically, psychologically and emotionally, at the same time.
More people then ever are suffering from asthma and allergies, cancer has become an almost common companion in our lives today and obesity, especially in children, has risen to shocking proportions world-wide. Anti-depressants are now one of the most wildly distributed medicines across all westernised countries.
The recent growth of the spa, fitness & wellness industries into a trillion dollar market is proof that we are aware of this trend and are looking for answers to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Part of the problem, is that we spend up to 80% of our time in-doors, in public and private transport or recreational buildings. In short, in artificial environments saturated with harmful VOC’s, unnatural light and skin damaging heating and cooling systems.
Raison d’Etre Spas has been at the forefront of developing and managing internationally renowned spas and spa brands since its founding in 1998. New scientific breakthroughs in recent years have made us aware that wellness and wellbeing extend beyond great service and treatments, to ensuring that the environment they are performed in is healthy too.
Our team is currently developing the Raison d’Etre OptimIZEd Building Standards that will allow us to support developers, contractors and owners in incorporating healthy living standards into their building and renovation projects, to ensure they meet what we believe will be new environmental standards in the very near future.
Our OptimIZEd Building Standards will focus on four areas:
- The quality and affects of materials and fabrics used in construction and interior design
- The quality of air
- The quality of water
- The quality of light
We will be offering our OptimIZEd Consultation Services to create healthy living and working environments for:
- Recreational, educational and professional buildings
- Hotels and Resorts
- Residential buildings
- Spas, clinics and medical facilities
