The Spa Wellness Solution

The Wellness Inventory is designed to enhance your spa's guest engagement and revenue enhancement strategies. The program enables your spa to be your guests' "year-round wellness solution" by enabling you to create personalized wellness programs for your guests which integrate key services and offerings from your spa, and to remain engaged with guests after their departure.

The Wellness Inventory is a whole person wellbeing program which inspires people to continually progress toward optimal personal wellbeing. The program helps individuals in creating and managing individual wellbeing to realize their full potential for optimal living.

"...a foundational tool for wellness development."

From the guest engagement perspective, the program's whole person wellness assessment acts as the entry point for your guests into their personalized spa wellness program. The program's action plan, progress tracker, and other powerful tools continue to guide your guest on their personal wellness journey after their departure through virtual sessions with your spa's wellness coaches.

Spas and the Global Wellness Market report from the Stanford Research Institute Estimates $1.9 Trillion Global Wellness Market

The "Spas and the Global Wellness Market" does an excellent job of defining wellness as multi-dimensional and holistic, laying out the history of the movement, as well as current wellness market trends, while identifying a "wellness cluster" of nine related industries comprising the wellness market. The Stanford Research Institute estimates this wellness cluster to be a $1.9 trillion global industry.

The findings are very supportive of our wellness philosophy and shows a growing marketplace for our Wellness Inventory program, not only through the cluster of nine industries, but in the global spa industry.

The philosophy of wellness pioneer and Wellness Inventory creator, John W. Travis, MD, MPH, appears to have had a strong influence on the report. The authors dedicate a full page to Dr. Travis concept of wellness and outline his pivotal role in the development of the wellness movement in United States (p.5, 71). Dr. Travis' Wellness Inventory program and Wellness Workbook are described as "foundational tools for wellness development."

The authors encourage the spa industry to embrace Dr. Travis' concept of the Illness-Wellness Continuum and indicate that they used it as a key framing device for the entire report (p. 59). The image of the Illness-Wellness Continuum appears twice in the report, and it was also adapted on p. 7 for the "Wellness Cluster" diagram of the nine industries comprising the wellness market, by changing the two ends of the continuum from "Premature Death" and "High Level Wellness" to "Reactive" and "Proactive".

The report also indirectly refers to one of the Wellness Inventory's strengths in helping spas create customized programs for their guests through the whole person assessment, and the ability to customize the 12 wellness resource centers with a spa's own services, classes, workshops, products and programs when it states,

"Help consumers understand and select the spa's wellness offerings by utilizing wellness assessment tools to create individually tailored packages of services/products within the context of the different dimensions of wellness."
(p vii)

The spa industry may take a closer look at the Wellness Inventory, a holistic assessment and life-balance program, and how it can effectively within a spa's guest engagement strategy, customizing of spa programs according to the clients needs and motivations as seen through the 12 dimensions of wellness, and providing an ongoing holistic welness program that one can begin at the spa and take home with them to continue the spa wellness experience through ongoing wellness coaching support.
