Sometimes you have to leave a place for a while to really see it for what it’s worth. I am about to begin another workshop for the Oberoi Hotel Group in India, this time with the therapists at Wildflower Hall, Shimla in the Himalayas. The spa therapists in all of the locations thus far have a level of warmth, camaraderie and a genuine love for what they do. They are all very young and excited about life in general. The managers are unfailingly supportive, protective and very kind to their staff and guests, extending themselves in a way that I have rarely seen. Without a doubt the Hall of Fame award winning Oberoi Hotel Group epitomizes WCS, world class service. But what I have discovered after traveling halfway across the world is that so does multi-award winning Rescue Rittenhouse Spa.
The therapists at Rescue Spa are well informed, curious and passionate about their craft. We possess a level of expertise that can be measured against a global award winning spa group and not fall short in any regard. I have discovered that being allowed and even encouraged to take home loads of products to sample for personal use is an educational privilege that is not the norm even in a world class organization.
The reception that I have received as a trainer has opened my eyes to the importance of education for spa therapists. And so I send much respect to Danuta Mieloch for keeping us, the Rescue staff, educated, aware, on the cutting edge and providing us with awesome tools and products which ensure that we stay on top of our game. And I give props to the entire team at Rescue Rittenhouse Spa who is in my eyes without a doubt, the Best of Philadelphia and quite possibly one of the best in the world.
