India is a wellness destination of the world: KJ Alphons

The interactive and engaging two-day conclave was a platform for the global spa and wellness industry to ideate and discuss the possibilities of taking the market to a new height.

While inaugurating the International Wellness Conclave (IWC) 2018 at Radisson Blu, New Delhi, KJ Alphons, the Minister of State for Tourism, has said that India is a wellness destination of the world.

He stated, "Ayurveda, yoga and Indian systems of medicines are healing powers as they don't depend on artificial substances and chemicals. Indian medicines depend on purity and authenticity. The products that heal us are actually Ayurvedic."

The interactive and engaging two-day conclave was a platform for the global spa and wellness industry to ideate and discuss the possibilities of taking the market to a new height.

"Through five 60 seconds advertisements, the Ministry is promoting a new perception and better understanding of yoga as a holistic way of life to attract more health-conscious, high-end travelers deeper into India", Alphons added.

Anil Khaitan, President PHD Chambers, said, "Gone are the days of Spas, we need holistic wellness system, based on AYUSH and develop it. We need to work on the concept, based on the culture of the state, and work on wellness resorts which the government has identified in the last budget."

Alkaa Punia, an entrepreneur and expert on 100% natural products, said, "There is no need of exposing our skin to chemicals and preservatives, even in small quantities."

Andrew Jacka, Chairman, Asia Pacific Spa & Wellness Coalition, said, "Only who is passionate about wellness and does not view it as a job can excel in this field. To promote the Asian spa industry in India, one should cater to the clients in the best possible way and understand their needs."

IWC aligned the concept of holistic wellness by bringing on-board designer and couturier Charu Parashar as the 'Wellness Fashion Ambassador'. Charu showcased her special spa and resort collection for IWC 2018.
