Spa operators across the country are getting ready to open their doors again and are carefully strategizing how to do this successfully. Tapping into some of this year’s key wellness trends is one method, such as the blend of healthcare with wellness (37%) and the power of breathwork to relieve stress and anxiety (20%), while more than a third (37%) are working with locally based micro-influencers to help drum up excitement and intrigue before reopening.

Making sure your Covid-19 guidelines are clear and concise is also important, which is why more than half (59%) of you are including this in all your marketing materials, along with a coronavirus FAQ page on your website (49%), and taking lots of informative pictures and videos for social media (34%) so customers can see how the spa journey will work.
