I don’t just live to spa, I spa to live!
You should probably know that I am Kathryn L. Stolle and not the Kathryn Stolle from Saskatchewan who appears to be considerably younger than I am and more interested in animals than in spas. Did I say spas? I have lived, slept, eaten and breathed spas for over 20 years, both designing, building and managing my own spa and later as a spa consultant specializing in every aspect of spa from A to Z.
I am absolutely entranced and captivated by everything that Spa embodies: health, wellness, pampering and self-care. I live a spa and wellness lifestyle every day with exercise like walking and Pilates; nutritious food cooked by my chef/husband that feeds my body and soul; meditation in the mornings and regular spa treatments that remind me that taking care of myself is not only important, but vital to my well being. As a result, I only need to see my doctor once a year for my annual tests and physical exam. Well, also mammograms and bone density checks!
And I’m an information gatherer. I love conferences where I can share and learn with other like-minded individuals and relish social media with its daily bombardment of news and info. I read voraciously and from time to time go into shut-down mode in order to digest what I’ve taken in. I have visions of snapping synapses and neural pathways hard at work processing, collating and assimilating all that I’ve absorbed.
The upshot? My two great passions: the spa industry and writing have come together in the pages of my new book, “Getting Great Spa On the Road to Wellness.” This book is for you, the consumer, and is full of tips and an insider’s look at how to take advantage of of all that spas have to offer as you travel your personal road to wellness. Of course, a single book can’t cover everything, and I’m grateful to have this blog as a medium to write about new topics as they arise. Welcome friends!
