A new market intelligence report titled “Global Health And Wellness Market” has been added to the repository of The Research Insights. The comprehensive assessment of the current trends restrains and futuristic opportunities, which are anticipated to provide lucrative avenues for market proliferation.
Health and wellness concerns and spreading access to dietary and nutritional information have made global consumers increasingly conscious of what they eat and drink. The Healthy Star Rating System presented during the review period constant to influence sales and help consumers make healthier choices, with product reformulations and packaging updates increasingly incorporating health and wellness attributes.
The International Spa Association’s (ISPA) 2019 industry study finds that 18 percent of spas have included cannabidiol (CBD) in their services reports SmartBrief. In terms of spas found at resort hotels, 33 percent have since included the cannabinoid, not to forget the number sitting at 16 percent for day spas.
The statistics have also been broken down in terms of regions, with Southwest taking the lead (42 percent) followed by the North (3 percent) and South (3 percent). Given CBD’s numerous properties, including its ability to induce calmness in consumers, ridding one of inflammation and pain and potentially achieving an overall balance in one’s emotional health, said inclusion is only natural.
That said, the spa industry considers a number of factors before including its likes. Here’s what has been shared thus far:
Details from Origin to Manufacturing is Crucial!
According to the Spa Director of Ojai Valley Inn, in California, Kaye Morrison, the decision to include CBD entails assessing the source of hemp. In particular, she expressed interest in “how it was grown, how it was harvested,” among others.
Spa Specialists Need to be Well-Educated
Obviously, with a component like CBD, especially when it starts popping up everywhere you go, induces one’s curiosity. When consumers at a spa seek for answers, spa specialists need to ensure that they are aware of its uses, possible effects and any other important information prior to recommending a service. This is a similar sentiment that has been previously expressed by ISPA’s Jamison Stoike.
Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary, Najib Balala, the Tourism Regulatory Authority (TRA) to develop standards and certifications on spa and wellness in Kenya.
Speaking when he met Spa & Wellness Association of Africa (SWAA) in Mombasa, Balala said time is ripe for such standards to conform to global standards while taking into consideration Kenya’s social and cultural fabric.
He said the standards would greatly benefit from the introduction of a curriculum with training in the industry through the Kenya Utalii College.
“I believe there is potential in this kind of tourism and that is why I am urging both TRA and SWAA to work together for the formulation and implementation of a series of standards and certifications to help enhance the offering to travelers and tourists,” he said.
Kenya is currently ranked fifth in Africa behind Mauritius, South Africa, Tunisia and Morocco in the spa and wellness industry.
Balala said there is potential great potential in Kenya for the business given that the global wellness industry is valued upwards of $4 trillion (Sh412 trillion).
The threat of hurricanes aside, locals love this time of year in South Florida for two reasons: The snowbirds have yet to arrive and fill the roads and restaurants, and you can score major deals at the area’s best establishments.
Greater Fort Lauderdale Restaurant and Spa Month both run through the end of September, meaning that there’s no better time to plan a staycation—or even a day trip—to our neighbor in the south. Sweetening the deal, most hotels slash prices during the fall, and Brightline’s frequent trips eliminate the stressful drive down I-95.
Spend the day getting pampered at one of Fort Lauderdale’s premier spas, many which boast ocean views and pool access. Our pick? The Spa at Auberge Beach, located inside the Auberge Beach Residences, a new luxury condominium building from the Auberge Resorts Collection situated right on the beach. Its location informs the spa’s three guiding elements: sea, salt, and sound, infused everywhere from the treatments to the organic design and decor, washed in whites and beiges to maximize the soothing factor. For the best of all worlds, we recommend the Vitality Package, a combination of a 50-minute massage and a 50-minute custom organic facial for $185. Afterward, grab a glass of complimentary prosecco and enjoy the spa’s amenities, such as the sound meditation lounge, infrared sauna, salt cave, and of course, beach access.
As awareness of the perceived benefits of cannabidiol rises in the US, more spas are adding treatments and offering products that incorporate CBD.
In the 2019 ISPA US Spa Industry Study due out later this month, the International Spa Association will report that 18% of spas featured CBD last year. One-third of spas at resort hotels include the products in treatments, while only 16% of day spas featured CBD products.
ISPA found regional differences as well. In the Southwest, where such products have been available longer, 42% of spas incorporate CBD, while the rate in the North and South was only 3%.
Interestingly, ISPA’s July Snapshot Survey found that 41% of respondents have added CBD for treatments, retail product sales or both. The survey, though it has a smaller sample size than the annual study, points to the rapid rate at which CBD use is growing.
Spas are focused on a number of things as they incorporate the products, especially the purity and efficacy of the compounds and education of both therapists and clients.
“I’m more interested in how it was grown, how it was harvested, how the workforce is treated by the company and how the land is treated,” Kate Morrison, spa director at Ojai Valley Inn in Ojai, Calif., told Hemp Industry Daily.
ISPA’s Jamison Stoike wrote recently of his first CBD treatment and took notice of how knowledgeable his therapist was, “which is particularly important for a product that arouses as many questions as CBD.”
Sundara Inn & Spa in Wisconsin Dells, Wis., has found CBD Oil Massage to be so popular that its menu has been expanded to include Lavender Lemongrass CBD manicures, pedicures and body treatments. “Therapists are enthusiastic about the results and guests appreciate the soothing benefits,” said Carla Minsky, a spokeswoman for the facility.
Meanwhile, the spa at La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, Calif., has added the VYBES Calm & Balance CBD Massage. “The treatment begins with a five-flavor flight of VYBES followed by a full body massage with therapeutic grade CBD oil and a full pour of spa-goers favorite VYBES flavor after the service,” spa spokesperson Taylor Thompson noted.

A hairstyle can help with looks and confidence, and a STREAM Kids Expo helped several young girls get their hair professionally styled with full salon treatment.
On Sunday, STREAM Kids Expo partnered with Tresor Salon and Spa to hold the first Glamming Kids For Success event, where young girls had their hair done for free.

Knight said after the event she realized there was a need for events like it specifically for girls to help bolster their self-confidence.
Almost 20 years ago Carlos Constantino came to Brownsville with a dream and $500 in his wallet.
Now, Constantino owns what probably is the most successful hair salon in the city with more than 50,000 followers across its Facebook and Instagram accounts. Soon, the professional stylist will open his cosmetology academy.
“I am an immigrant from Mexico City and I came here with new ideas, new styles and people liked it, but at the same time they didn’t, because it made them leave their comfort zone,” Constantino said in Spanish. “When I started working here in Brownsville, at the hair salon that I was at, about 18 years ago, they offered the same services to everyone, it was all the same. All the clients would come out looking the same way, it was like mass production.”
After being fired over his fresh ideas, Constantino first entered a state of shock because he did not expect it and did not have any money saved. However, that soon turned into an “aggressive passion” for him to do a market study and open his very own professional salon.
“I was in shock, because since it was unexpected, I didn’t have any money saved. Since they pay was good I would spend all my money on dumb things. … So, I rented a chair at a salon and I started to do this little market study, even though I didn’t have any idea how to make one of those,” he said. “I don’t like to sit around and wait for opportunities, I’m very aggressive with my work, so, with a notepad I would go to the mall, to Peter Piper Pizza, Kmart, and many other places and ask women about what kind of styles they like for their hair.”
