Kimberley Matheson Shedrick, Business Week, Natural Resources Spa Consulting, Changing Course with mySpaShop, August 200


Kim Matheson Shedrick had spent 16 years growing New York-based Natural Resources into a 15-person, $1 million company that advises developers of high-end spas. But in late 2008 no one was building much of anything, never mind pricey spas selling hot seashell massages and lavender-oil body scrubs. Matheson Shedrick decided the time was ripe for an idea she'd been kicking around since 2001—mySpaShop.com, which would offer products and wellness advice for less affluent spa aficionados. "I looked at how I could use all the contacts I have in the industry to target the customer who can't spend $500 visiting a spa," says Matheson Shedrick.

environment with caring professionals. The extraordinary growth and resiliency of the global spa and wellbeing industry has been fueled both by cutting edge technology and ancient ideas in health, wellness, fitness, beauty, design and cuisine. Relaxation has never been more essential as the stresses of everyday life continue to pile up. Living Spa is a necessity for transformative well being, not a self-indulgent, pampering extravagance. I have been happily involved in the spa industry for more than 20 years. As a spa consultant that has developed projects around the world, I’ve been fascinated by the discovery of a global spa culture and unspoken language. During a recent visit to Doha, I had the privilege of visiting with some of the local women and their children. Initially, we were quite shy of one another as we felt there was little we had in common. However, as soon as I brought up spas, the conversation became quite animated and flew through topics such as make-up, fitness and beauty tips.

Following a $1 billion makeover that was completed in November, the Fontainebleau's luster was restored and the grand dame now sparkles and thrives once again as a playground for the rich and famous. For those who become victims of too much play, the remodel made way for a 40,000-square-foot heavenly oasis named Lapis, one of the hottest new spas on the beach. "We were inspired by the glamorous and colorful legacy of the Fontainebleau, which we wanted to honor," says Kimberley Matheson Shedrick, president of Natural Resources Spa Consulting and consultant on the project. "However, we set out to truly reinvent a sensory-rich environment desirable to the 21st-century interpretation of glamour."
