    I found this intriguing. I would think since TCM and many of the modalities used in Spas around the world originated from older cultures like Asia, that there would be a plethora of available practitioners in these regions. Although I have been involved in Nutrition and Natural Health since the late 80′s the rise of spas in America is a recent revelation to me. Is there any research out there that shows growth of Spas and Wellness Clinics in the US?
