The Global Wellness Institute, along with Access Corporate Group, conducted a study on the growth of the global wellness industry during COVID. The report presents the highs and lows within the international health and wellness space during the pandemic and offers predictions for 2022.

 

Overall, the industry was greatly affected by the pandemic. Unlike other industries and services, wellness experiences primarily cannot be replicated with virtual experiences. Wellness tourism spending in the United States saw a decrease from $263.5 billion in 2019 to $162.1 billion in 2020. However, the United States ranked highest for wellness tourism expenditures among the top 20 destination markets, accounting for 37 percent of all expenditures in 2020. In 2020, worldwide wellness tourism declined 39.5 percent, while worldwide overall tourism declined 43 percent.

 

Despite the overall hit to wellness tourism, 2022 and beyond show a more optimistic outlook. The study projects a 21 percent annual growth rate for wellness tourism through 2025. Thermal and mineral spas show a worldwide increase of 18 percent expected through 2025. New mineral spa projects are also currently in the pipeline.

 

Spas were hit hard during the pandemic, with revenues down 39 percent and the closure of more than 4,000 day spas. The industry is expected to bounce back quickly, with a projected market growth of 17 percent and double revenues.

Brasserie Mon Chou Chou Review

What happens when three of the six French nationals residing in San Antonio get together? If they happen to be from a long line of proud French gourmands from three different regions of the country, they take what they know and make it something proudly Texan, while still adhering to their separate and collective culinary roots. That’s exactly what happened as a result of those three — Executive Chef Laurent Réa of Strasbourg, Philippe Placé of Chartres, and Jérôme Sérot of Lyon — meeting 20 years ago.

Recharge and Renew at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
