Wellness Services Businesses for the future

Today mankind’s most pressing need is – wellness. Wellness in all aspects of life-food, health, work, and pleasure. This sudden demand surge has opened the floodgates of opportunities for wellness resorts, wellness centers, hospitals, hotels, facilitators, and businesses.

Reports suggest that spending on wellness is greatly associated with happiness and longevity. For every $800 increase in annual wellness expenditure per person, happiness increases by 7% and longevity by 1.26 years (GWI). Isn’t this interesting? Though a lot depends on the nature of spending, it affirms the massive potential of wellness businesses.

I believe medical tourism is also moving towards a new shift where wellness will have a bigger role. The need of the hour is to bring in innovation, test creative skills, and even experiment. What would be the best wellness business practices today and in the coming years?

Let’s dive deep into this wellness guide.

Alongside, unwellness has gripped us to such an extent that we need to reconnect with the foundations of wellness to lead quality life.

  • 970 million people worldwide have mental health or substance abuse disorder
  • Mental illness affects more females (11.9%) than males (9.3%).
  • It is estimated mental disorders are attributable to 14.3% of deaths worldwide, or approximately 8 million deaths each year. (JAMA)
  • Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the world affecting 284 million.
  • Depression hitting 264 million
    According to GWI, Mental wellness is a $121 billion market. Preventable non-communicable diseases account for more than half of global deaths.
