Top 5 Trends in the Spa and Wellness Industries in 2013


In our previous post, we reviewed some of the trends we saw unfold in 2012 within the spa and wellness industries. In particular, we discussed last year’s performance and the business potential that medical evidence, family packages and coaching will continue to offer in 2013.

This week, we are focusing a bit more on the concepts that will define the spa and wellness industries during the next twelve months. The following trends are based on the predictions unveiled by SpaFinder as well as our own insights regarding the role that care providers and future generations will play in the development of our industry. Let’s take a look.


The 2012 Post-Mortem of the Spa Industry


Last month, we shared some insights about the trends that the spa industry consolidated in 2012. We would like to welcome 2013 by taking a look at the way our industry evolved last year. In particular, we would like to focus on the three trends that we saw unfold in 2012 and will continue to rise within the spa and wellness fields during the next 12 months.

Taking as a source of inspiration some of the reflections provided by Susie Ellis, President of Spa Finder Wellness, in her blog, this article discusses the role that medical evidence for spa and wellness treatments, family-based services and coaching played in 2012, and will continue to play in 2013, in the evolution of the spa industry. Let’s take a closer look.


Top Readers’ Favourites in 2012


As the year comes to an end, we would like to unveil our most popular posts of 2012. It is interesting to note that our top four articles are closely related to the increasing cohesion of the synergies between the spa and wellness industries and the health field.

We have also noted that the popularity of these posts respond to the increasing interest these business opportunities have generated among spa and wellness professionals. Along those lines, these articles also mirror the evolution of the spa industry and our desire to move away from the notion of mere luxury and exclusivity that defined our beginning.
