SpaFinder recently announced its prediction of 2008 spa industry trends.
10 Spa Trends to Watch in 2008:
The “Feng Shui’d” Gym – Goodbye, mirrored walls and fluorescent lighting; hello waterfalls, fine art and, more generally, the kind of soul-stirring design and ambience for which spas have become famous.
A Star (Therapist) Is Born – A spa treatment is only as good as the therapist who provides it, yet for years consumers have been dazzled by a spa’s emphasis on features and services. Look for that to change as increasingly savvy spa-goers come to seek out and reward talented therapists.
Wellness, Wellness, Wellness – Wellness may end up becoming the next trillion-dollar revolution, and it’s becoming increasingly central to the spa experience, with fitness, nutrition, education, as well as alternative practices such as energy medicine, reiki, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), all becoming important aspects of “spa.”
