Stem cell technology to change the face of the spa industry

I've been fascinated with stem cell technology ever since meeting local Aspenite and founder of "Challenge Aspen" Amanda Boxtel a few years ago.  Boxtel, a 5'7" pert and attractive blonde with a bubbly, upbeat personality became a paraplegic in 1993 after a freak skiing accident on Snowmass Mountain that broke her back and left her paralyzed from the hips down. Three years ago, she underwent embryonic stem cell therapy in India that so far has resulted in a partial restoration of the muscle response in her gluteal and leg muscles and allows her to walk on an "anti-gravity treadmill" at the Aspen Club & Spa.
