Do you know the difference between mental health & mental wellness? And why should you care? The Global Wellness Institute found that the 2019 mental wellness industry is a $120.8 billion market. When we look more closely, we see that $86 billion came from modalities that are available through travel. Here lies an opportunity for travel advisors.
Wellness Immersions offer an opportunity to step out of our day-to-day and see our lives from a fresh vantage point. From there, we can overcome roadblocks and replace unproductive habits that don’t support us. A Wellness Immersion can help participants adopt a new perspective.
Healing travel is designed for emotional and physical healing. The ultimate goal is to heal your soul. Someone traveling for healing has the intention of being open to receive support, the willingness to go deeper within.
Wellness travel is not exempt from the search of atmosphere. Travelers may look for tranquility, luxury, or spiritual inspiration and guidance. When we look at how such unique atmospheres were (or could be) created, we are talking about the concept of ‘scapes’.
The Outlook surveyed over 1,100 travel advisors about what is happening and trending within the world of wellness.
