It is well documented that we have an inborn need for contact with nature and that this connection is essential to our health and well-being.

Biophilic design can be used in the spa or salon to increase the connection to the natural environment by incorporating elements of nature such as light, water, air and plants.
Different studies over the past 30 years have shown that by simply adding biophilic elements to your space, general well-being is increased by 13%.
