SAN DIEGO, March 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AVACEN Medical, Inc. (AVACEN) announced that today AVACEN and Hollywood celebrities are celebrating the 90th Academy Awards at the Four Seasons Hotel - Beverly Hills. To commemorate the launch of AVACEN's new Spa & Wellness Division, AVACEN is a Gift Lounge participant at the event. The Spa & Wellness Division brings the AVACEN 100 to Spas, Wellness Clinics & Cruise Lines around the globe - providing muscle relaxation therapy similar to a wellness massage.
Wellness is a global movement. Consumers seek to ensure healthy lives for as long as possible, particularly as average life-spans continue to rise. The Global Wellness Institute estimates that the worldwide wellness industry grew by 10.6 percent to $3.72 trillion between 2013 and 2015. In the same period the global economy shrank 3.6 percent - making Wellness one of the world's fastest-growing markets.
Danielle Forsgren, Director of Spa & Wellness Programs for AVACEN stated, "Up until recently the AVACEN 100 was mainly available to world champion athletes and celebrities who purchased the device for muscular relaxation therapy in the privacy of their own homes or hotel rooms while on-the-road. The massive "where can we try one?" response related to former UFC World Champion Chuck Liddell's use of the AVACEN 100 on the popular CBS reality show, Celebrity Big Brother, accelerated our launch by several months. To bring the AVACEN Experience to more people, beginning immediately, we will be significantly expanding our current commercial base of first-class Spas and Wellness clinics globally including cruise ships."
AVACEN's expansion includes one of the top boutique hotels in Southern California. La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla will debut the AVACEN Experience at the hotel's new spectacular oceanside wellness sanctuary, Spa La V in April 2018. According to SPA La Vs' Director of Spa, Dana Stallings, "I had a chance to personally experience the soothing wellness benefits of the AVACEN 100 muscular relaxation therapy (MRT) and I knew immediately that this is something our guests would love. AVACEN is perfect for those who desire a wellness massage but avoid it because associated pain gets more pronounced with age, sensitive skin or painful joints such as those associated with arthritis or fibromyalgia."
With approximately 3 million treatments and zero reported adverse effects, the AVACEN 100 is the only known medical device able to safely and noninvasively warm the body rapidly by infusing heat into the circulatory system using the palm of the hand.
