Spa and wellness treatments remain ever-popular, making them worth implementing in your facilities. With mental wellbeing at the forefront of public consciousness, it comes as no surprise that many of these emerging practices are designed to relax the mind. To ensure you cater to clients wishing to capitalise on current trends, we share five of the newest and popular wellness treatments to implement in your spa.
Wellness Treatments in Ecotherapy
With over 50 per cent of the world’s population now living in urban areas, many are wanting wellness treatments in natural environments. Forest bathing has become popular as a result, immersing one’s self in an environment of flora and fauna to relax. Enhancing your spa with natural elements such as outdoor areas with water or plant life are cited to create a calming effect and reduce anxiety.
Regular sleep is vital for maintaining productivity and wellbeing, which is why napping has become a popular wellness treatment. Nap bars have emerged all over the world to take a midday snooze, whilst nap pods have become hotly requested in businesses. With sleep effecting wellness, it may be time to incorporate nap-style treatments (which include lavender oil facials or aromatherapy) in your spa.
Sound baths are unusual wellness treatments which involve being surrounded by specific frequencies of vibration. Sometimes used in meditation or yoga, the sound frequencies trigger certain areas of the brain and activate chakra points to help relieve tension. Crystal singing bowls, high-frequency instruments and gongs are all that’s really needed to create this increasingly popular treatment.
Cupping Wellness Treatments
Many occupations involve sitting at a desk, which means wellness treatments that improve posture have become particularly prevalent. Cupping is just one of these treatments, which places cups or silicone on the backs of clients to lift connective tissue in muscles. The aim is to improve muscle recovery and lift your fascia, helping to combat long workdays of bad posture.
Breathing and meditation
Meditation has been an immensely popular wellness treatment in the past few years and is set to continue in popularity. Intense workouts require a suitable cooldown, which is where breathing techniques and meditative practices come in. Studies have shown that practising 25 minutes of controlled breathing can improve cognitive function and calm the mind, making them popular post workout or during yoga.
