Raison d'Etre, the global spa consultancy for wellness, has launched its mid-year wellness trends, with Managing Director Anna-Cari Gund and the team identifying seven trends from #Hashtag treatments to Nutritarianism that will begin to grow in popularity in the latter half of 2017 and beyond.
The team will now be monitoring trends on a monthly basis to ensure their international partners can make informed decisions on their business developments. Anna-Cari Gund says “Having an awareness of growing trends is an essential aspect of running a business within a competitive industry. By incorporating trend-lead themes into new packages or adjusting operations as a response to these mid-year trends, will help to improve spa branding and increase occupancy levels as trends increase in popularity.”
