While the task of medical science was once limited to the search for remedies to existing diseases, there has long been a school of thought which dictates that prevention is better than cure. It is a philosophy that has in recent times grown beyond the realms of medical science and into other aspects of our daily life. Over the past half a century, people have become increasingly aware of the importance of exercise, diet and a healthy lifestyle. But now there is a new way to boost your immune system—and it can even enhance your beauty at the same time!

Already popular in ancient Rome, spas are actually believed to date as far back as pre-historic times. While the attraction of spas was originally associated with the therapeutic or curative properties of local waters, modern-day spas have become increasingly more concerned with beauty and pampering than with health and wellness. But all that could be about to change!

There exists today a branch of spa treatments that is concerned with the strengthening of the body’s immune system through the application of skin creams that are specially blended and chosen to match different blood types.

The concept of treating individuals differently based on what type of blood flows through their veins is not a new one. As far back as 50 years ago, Dr. James L. D'Adamo, N.D., D.N.B., made the correlation between blood type and dietary needs. His findings were the start of what has been an extremely slow but inherently irresistible revolution.

Two of the cornerstones of Dr. D’Adamo’s findings were that nutrients can be absorbed through the skin and different nutrients bring greater benefits for certain blood types.  And this is where forward-thinking entrepreneurs within the spa industry have found an opportunity to give their clients more than just a healthy glow.

One of the leading innovators of this concept is Chutchada Roonkithanya, whose revolutionary ‘blood type therapy’ draws from the principles of Dr. D’Adamo and was developed in direct response to the growing wellness trend within the spa industry. With more than 10 years’ experience in the skin care business including marketing a number of international skin care brands, Khun Chutchada’s interest in blood type-specific diets led her to create a skin care line that is in sync with Dr. Adamo’s premise.

To market her new range of skin care products, Khun Chutchada set up Immunetra in 2010. Using only the highest quality natural ingredients carefully, Immunetra’s products embody a philosophy of beauty and protection.
In order to ensure the products are used appropriately, Immunetra also provides extensive training for an impressive list of clients that includes “spaathenee” at Plaza Athenee Bangkok and “cool spa” at Sripanwa Phuket.

In the increasingly competitive spa industry, offering a treatment that not only gives the skin a healthy glow but also boosts the body’s immune system is likely to see that client base continue to grow.
