Clarins exclusive expertise lies in a unique and customized touch based on a physiological knowledge of the skin, which today is carried out in our Spas across the world by over 2,000 beauty therapists. For 17 years Clarins has been taking special care of Air France Business travelers in-flight and on the ground. On November 2, 2022, the Air France Lounge in New York’s JFK opens a new Clarins Spa area, offering tailor-made treatments. 

A haven of serenity

Clarins opens its new Spa area with 2 completely insulated treatment rooms, to welcome Air France La Première, Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers looking for well-being and relaxation. In a warm, inviting atmosphere, travelers can relax and unwind here before a trip or in-between flights.

Clarins professional art of touch for travelers

A unique savoir-faire practiced for over 65 years, the science of touch and science of plants are complementary and closely linked. On one side, there’s the hand, an extraordinary tool: the weight and rhythm of the hand determine the movement which relaxes, drains or tones. On the other, Clarins skincare formulas with high-performance plant extracts which respect the skin. The perfect synergy, for results you can see and feel, immediately after the treatment.

To leave the skin in perfect condition and allow clients to travel and reach their destination totally relaxed, Clarins has developed three 20-minute facial treatments for women and men: ‘Detox Time’, ‘Jet-Lag Relief’ and ‘Eye Must’. This treatment menu is also available in 30-minute format for La Première customers, who can also pick a ‘relax and reset’ treatment carried out exclusively for Air France.

… and of course your in-flight comfort kit

This complimentary Air France kit for Business travelers contains all the Clarins essentials in travel size, to ensure a smooth flight and radiant skin on arrival at your destination: two moisturizers – a Hydra-Essential Cooling Gel for face and Hand and Nail Treatment Cream – for perfectly moisturized, fresh, glowing skin.

November 2022: now boarding for a more beautiful trip with Clarins professional Treatments.

Shai Efrati, MD, the World’s Leading Research Scientist and Innovator in Hyperbaric Medicine, to Keynote at the Global Wellness Summit

Efrati’s clinic in Tel Aviv has produced an extraordinary body of research on how their unique protocol for hyperbaric oxygen therapy can actually reverse the biology of aging. Their ability to take brain and cell function back in time is making headlines and Aviv Clinics, which he co-founded, are now being rolled out worldwide.

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the most prestigious conference on the $4.4 trillion business of wellness, announced today that Shai Efrati, MD, the world’s foremost research scientist on hyperbaric oxygen therapy, will keynote at the conference being held at the Hilton Tel Aviv from October 31 to November 3. Efrati is a professor at Sackler School of Medicine and the Sagol School of Neuroscience at Tel Aviv University and director of the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at Shamir Medical Center–the largest hyperbaric center in the world, treating over 350 patients a day.

Our new studies demonstrate something for the first time and it’s the ‘holy grail’ of wellness: We can actually reverse the biology of aging and take cellular and brain function back in time.

Dr. Shai Efrati, Hyperbaric Medicine Specialist

Efrati’s lab has created a unique approach for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) which consists of immersing people in a high-pressure, high-oxygen environment and then carefully regulating oxygen and pressure levels. This technique, which is called the hyperoxic-hypoxic paradox (HHP), ‘tricks’ the body into entering a regenerative state which unleashes a cascade of biological changes. These include the proliferation of stem cells, the generation of new blood vessels, and the repair of brain cells and tissue.

Eye-opening evidence:

Over the last decade, Efrati’s research team has authored dozens of high-quality clinical studies that show how this specific HBOT therapy revolving around the hyperoxic-hypoxic paradox has eye-opening impact on so many conditions. It can significantly boost brain function in stroke and traumatic brain injury patients, heal the wounds in the brain caused by PTSD, improve sexual function, and roll back the process of skin aging. This month, their randomized controlled trial found that the therapy incited brain healing and improved myriad symptoms in long Covid sufferers, an area where solutions have been elusive.

But it’s his recent research on healthy individuals that has such extraordinary implications for the wellness world. The therapy was recently shown to significantly improve (not just slow the loss of) cognitive function in healthy, older adults by generating new neurons and blood vessels in the brain–the first study to demonstrate that a brain can be made ‘younger’. Another recent study revealed that the treatment reversed two major processes associated with aging and its illnesses: the shortening of telomeres (the protective caps at the ends of every chromosome) and the accumulation of old, malfunctioning cells in the body. Participants’ telomeres were lengthened up to 38% while senescent cells saw a decrease of up to 37%.

“Our new studies demonstrate something for the first time and it’s the ‘holy grail’ of wellness: We can actually reverse the biology of aging and take cellular and brain function back in time. It’s analogous to the first time that man landed on the moon. After that first landing, everyone wanted to travel there, but even faster and more effectively. So, we’ll see young scientists rush to study aging and huge investment in this area”, said Efrati. “Aging isn’t a bad thing; it’s the functional decline that is. As the wellness world knows well, many more people seek solutions that can make them fully potent and active every single year of their life. The future is high-performance aging, and I’m excited to share my vision of that future–and the rising place of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the medical-wellness world–with the leaders that will gather at the Summit”.

Caution: This isn’t the ‘hyperbaric oxygen treatment’ at your corner spa:

Hyperbaric oxygen treatments are spawning at spas and wellness centers and with at-home products. But, as Efrati cautions, it’s not even the same approach: these offerings simply involve putting people in a sack, or pod, full of minimally pressurized, oxygenated air, when that’s not what makes HBOT effective. “The game-changing component is the hyperoxic-hypoxic paradox: the precise protocols we’ve optimized for oxygen and pressure levels, fluctuations, and durations that spark the regenerative process in the body, said Efrati. “This evidence-based therapy has to be performed in a medical facility by a trained physician. All these oxygen spas and pods can be dangerous: they miss the quality assurance of the air pump being inside, and they pose threats of oxygen toxicity and other health issues. They’re also not effective. The future is clearing up much confusion in the marketplace about what evidence-based hyperbaric oxygen therapy actually entails and achieves”.

Aviv Clinics: Rolling out this evidence-based treatment globally:

To make a more powerful global impact and to ‘walk faster’, Efrati co-founded AVIV Scientific, a research organization and network of global medical-wellness clinics focused on innovative applications of hyperbaric medicine using the HHP protocols, that can increase cognitive and physical performance in healthy aging adults. Clinics are open in Tel Aviv, at The Villages in central Florida, and most recently in Dubai–and are expected to come to New York and the UK soon. Aviv plans 50 clinics around the world within the next decade. Each clinic combines HBOT with personalized medicine, cognitive and fitness training, and nutrition coaching. Thanks to an exclusive partnership with the world’s largest hyperbaric research facility, the Sagol Center at Shamir Medical Center, each patient’s data and samples are sent to the center’s large research lab, where blood, DNA, telomeres, MRI results, etc. are analyzed. Since Sagol Center is doing so much research, positive findings can immediately be implemented at the clinics. For instance, with their new trial indicating that HBOT can help with long Covid damage to the brain, new programs were quickly rolled out.

“Every year we aim to bring the brightest stars in health and wellness to the stage, and Dr. Efrati is exactly the kind of innovator we seek: a dynamic thinker whose work will really shake up our future, whose solutions are grounded in evidence, and who understands that new connections between medicine and wellness lie ahead”, said Susie Ellis, GWS chair and CEO. “It’s an incredible opportunity for delegates to be immersed in his research on the future of aging at such an early, pivotal moment. What he’s doing is game-changing”.

Registration for the 2022 Summit is now open.

Dallas’ ritziest hotel spa unveils multimillion-dollar renovation and opulent diamond facial

The Ritz-Carlton, Dalls, Texas’ first and Dallas’ only five-star hotel, proudly announces the multimillion dollar renovation completion of the 12,000 square foot luxury spa. Dallas-based design firm ForrestPerkins thoughtfully transformed The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas into a tranquil and enchanted garden oasis, boasting delicate and timeless design work throughout. This reimagination breathes fresh air and modern luxury into The Spa, adding another five-star amenity to match the property’s five-star service.

Our vision was to transform The Spa, choreographing an exquisite guest experience with a sense of place and individuality through attention to design, detail and service. The Spa redesign does exactly that, offering a daily dose of nature in a luxurious and soothing setting, and we look forward to welcoming spa-goers to experience our elegant new look along with brand-new treatment options for a fresh, luxury spa experience.

Scott Studstill, The Spa Director of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas

The intricate new design pulls inspiration from the rich and lushly manicured urban parks and gardens woven throughout the heart of Dallas. Just beyond The Spa doors – which feature weathered bronze handles resembling natural tree branches – spa-goers are greeted by one of the most notable design elements, a stunning and full-scale, hand-forged metal trellis, sculpted by local artist, Larry Whiteley, known for his artistic pieces inspired by nature.

As guests pass underneath the sculpture upon entering The Spa, they can take in the intricate, yet delicate detailing, including the meticulously formed vines, leaves, flowers and blooms.

Tranquility flows through each room as the overall color palate is made up of crisp whites and bronze metals with lilac, lavender, and blue accents, paying homage to the elegant orchid blooms nearby. Soaring ceilings create a domed lighting effect, and elegant light fixtures comprised of branches and crystals adorn each corridor. Watery abstract pieces of art thoughtfully hang in each room to offer an everyday dose of nature.

To compliment The Spa’s luxurious new aesthetic, a fresh treatment menu was carefully curated, and features two news treatments. Inspired by the natural ambiance of The Spa’s interior, these treatments utilize the natural healing properties of diamonds and CBD to rejuvenate and refresh tired muscles and skin.

To coincide with the ritzy new renovations, the spa introduced a sparkling new treatment using the ultimate luxury ingredient: diamonds. A new Diamond Facial (using Natura Bisse products) is designed to improve elasticity and luminosity of the skin, as diamonds reinforce the skin’s natural defense system, says the spa menu. It’s 80 minutes and $350. 

Another new treatment uses trendy CBD-infused products. Called the ‘Calm, Balance, and Delight’ treatment, it’s a 120-minute experience that includes a hemp-derived edible, soothing Craniosacral techniques, to boost overall health and immunity, directly followed by a luxurious full-body massage and foot treatment using CBD-rich emollient; $415

The spa has kept favorite treatments like the Hydrafacial MD, Texas Eight-Hand Massage, and Dean’s Margarita Salt Glow. Couple’s and men’s treatments are available, too. Services start at $180.

The Spa renovation included reimagining the entrance, reception and retail areas, sleek upgrades to the nail spa and hair salon, elevating the Men’s and Women’s relaxation lounges, a brand-new spa dining lounge and reconfiguration of existing treatment rooms with the addition of two new rooms.

The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas is now open and accepting reservations online as well as by phone at 214.922.4820. Spa services start at $180, and hours of operation are Monday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Buyouts are available but subject to availability.

Ultima Collection: the Ultima Crans Montana Chalets


After its first hotel and residences in Gstaad ‘Ultima Gstaad Hotel, Spa & Residences’ was voted among the best hotels in Switzerland and received the prize of ‘Trendsetter Hotel of the Year’ by GQ Magazine, Ultima launches its collection of homes, hotels and residences. The first edition of the ultra-luxury chalets will be inaugurated this upcoming December in Crans-Montana.

The launch of Ultima Crans-Montana follows in the wake of the opening of our first hotel, Ultima Gstaad, which launched in 2016. This inspired us to expand the Ultima Collection, taking the boutique hotel concept one step further with the addition of two entirely privatised chalets that offer the Ultima service, style and design.

Byron Baciocchi and Max-Hervé George

The people behind Ultima Gstaad, founders Byron Baciocchi and Max-Hervé George, are now adding two new properties to the lavish Ultima Collection with the launch of the Ultima Crans-Montana in Switzerland. Opening this December, in time for the next winter season, these exclusive-use chalets have been designed to bridge the gap between luxury hotels and real estate through their combination of service, privacy and comfort.




Of the two chalets being introduced, the largest has 11 suites, two of which are master bedrooms, along with a billiards room, yoga studio and fully equipped fitness center. The second chalet is also generously sized with six suites and an open-plan kitchen and dining area.

Emulating the character of the sister property, Ultima Gstaad, Ultima Crans-Montana Chalets will adopt the brand’s unique and opulent style aligning traditional architecture with modern design accents. Think wooden interiors, adorned with soft furnishings and textiles, to complement the contemporary marble bathrooms and bronze chimneys.





Guests to both chalets will benefit from access to Ultima Collection’s exclusive range of services and amenities including a 1000m2 Spa, a state-of-the-art cinema, a top class private chef and a dedicated concierge service.

The first edition of the ultra-luxury chalets will be inaugurated this upcoming December in Crans-Montana. The complex, located in the altitude of Plateau de Plan-Mayens will consist of two ultra-luxurious chalets, completely private for absolute intimacy. The installation, which started a few months ago, will aim to transform the two properties in accordance with the Ultima standards.





Perhaps most appealingly, these new chalets sit within the breathtaking Crans-Montana region combining two neighboring resorts on a plateau high above the Rhone Valley with views of the region’s iconic peaks, Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. From here you can venture onto the slopes and in summer explore the forest, seek out the swimmable lakes and follow the network of walking trails.
