The year 2021 is running, and spas are ready for it! Check out these top wellbeing and spa trends
It seems that 2021 is going to be a “try new things” year. All the trends are changing, and that includes fashion, fitness, food, and of course… wellbeing. One of the aspects that made 2020 so important is the situations we had to face to understand that we all need and deserve a break, that it is necessary that our bodies and minds are okay so we can function in any other aspect of our lives. People are learning that this old and harmful thinking of “exhaustion as success” is nothing but incorrect and extremely unhealthy and it is time to change it.
For this, we have collected a top 10 wellness and spa trends that you will find equally awesome and surprising since, maybe, you had no idea it could be(and has to be) included in our routines. Can you imagine? Taking care of our bodies and our minds instead of ignoring them until sleep deprivation and tiredness knock us down? Unimaginable!
It is a wonderful option for these new times since guided meditation can be done virtually and present. Breathing exercises and mindfulness are key to feel better and free ourselves from many complications that look bigger than they actually are. It’s not about silencing your mind, is about get inside it and learn how to live with your thoughts and make them better little by little.
Spas are taking an extra step when it comes to wellbeing, and for this, they have gone beyond the idea of just massages, and now focus their treatments on an entire healing experience for their clients. Including the mind and feelings is a big step into achieving real relaxation and health.
‘Staycation’ Wellness Boom
A lot of countries are not going to be able to open their flights soon, but vacations can still be great ones if you’re interested in doing some local tourism. This will be a trend because of the obvious reasons, and a lot of your favorite places are going to be available for you to spend some days making the best out of the new sanitary aspects of vacationing.
Immunity booster retreats
The immune system is the main subject these times, and of course, spas are going to offer the best they have for you to feel secure and reenergized. There are vast options to offer our bodies the health it deserves, and this includes good food, exercises focus on our bodies specifically, personal treatments and sunnier climates are just in the top of the list.
Working remotely on Holidays
Home office is well into our lives now, and we better embrace it. There is a new outlook on working on holidays since it’s better to do it on a beautiful island than from home, so don’t be afraid of taking your computer to your vacation. The moderate use of this method is proven to be really efficient and has wonderful results. Look for a place you like and go there to work. You will thank us later.
Cannabis-infused facials and massages
from CBD oil to lotions, live rosin, and more, this trend promises to be incredible. We all have been waiting for the benefits of cannabis to be legal and now appears to be the time. Massages and treatments with cannabis serve incredible on your skin, relieve chronic pain and inflammation, and deliver a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
If this isn’t a dream come true, we don’t know what is, because massages and sleeping, together, sound like an oasis and we’re ready for it to be more popular. Spas have created specialized sleep massages to help clients recover from insomnia naturally and avoid using pills. The magic happens with sleep-inducing oils and essences that promote relaxation and restore harmony in the body and brain.
It will be another spa trend promising great results. Exposing the body to hot and cold temperatures will increase muscle tone, firm up the skin, and facilitate blood circulation. But be aware, these are not just warm or cool degrees, they mean really high and really cold.
Wellness music and sound experiences
It is now proven that music has more to do with health than we thought. It’s not only about a boost of energy or mood, but a huge help on mental conditions like PTSD, anxiety, and high blood pressure. Loud environments have been linked to rises in heart disease, obesity, low birth weight, and cognitive impairment in children, so spas are taking care of this with real seriousness. They include special melodies in meditations and treatment sessions, to avoid these symptoms increasing.
This is like an all private vacation for people. It is said that destinations with lower Covid-19 risk and Covid-safe certified wellness resorts are going to be the most popular to visit, and they will offer a new view on the horizon of sanitary restrictions and, after a year in isolation, people will be happy to go to a controlled place, COVID free and close to crowdedness.
Once again, the world leaves us with interesting changes and choices. This is good because we have been through a lot, and there is no lie about that. One of the good news is that you can look for information about each of these trends focusing on the ones you can do at home: music, yoga, meditation… all together even. Try to give them your own touch, if there is something we have learned this year is to make the best of what we have, be creative and patient with our bodies, so take relaxation and self-care serious. And hey, here’s an idea: do not underestimate any green space you have or you can have. Plants are a perfect way to transform our spaces and become more aware and careful since they also require attention and love.
Redecorating some personal spots at home can be wonderfully revigorating too, so take a chance and make it happen. Look for inspiration and, hey, it doesn’t have to be expensive. One of the most popular things is the DIY method, and it gives the space a cozy and more personal look. Moving furniture also counts, or changing the lighting with some small, cute, and colorful light bulbs just around a corner or a mirror. Trust Pinterest, it has everything.
