Hotel and resort spas and wellness centres should invest in cell therapy, sleep testing and detox treatments, according to a new report by market researcher Horwath HTL, sister company of spa operator and consultancy Goco Hospitality.
Part of the report looked at future trends and ways in which spas can cater to the wellness interests of “high net worth individuals”.
Advanced anti-ageing treatments are predicted to hone in on cell therapy to kick-start clients’ regenerative processes by injecting active cell extracts and fostering cell rejuvenation.
Meanwhile, the wellness industry’s current focus on sleep, thanks to emerging research on the links between health, beauty and neuroscience, is predicted to inspire more sleep-testing centres in spas to assess clients’ physical health in terms of their sleep.
Intravenous therapies could see renewed interest in terms of detoxification, particularly appealing to those aged over 3 6, said Howarth HTL. By offering drip cocktails with multiple health benefits, such as energy boosting as well as detoxifying, wellness centres could add an attractive and “relatively straightforward” additional revenue stream, said the analyst.
