The Spa Industry Grew Almost 500% in 10 Years

Everyone hopes to be healthy and live in comfort. Taking care of your body, mind, and spirit are the keys to success. With later (or evaporating) retirement, both men and women are interested in taking care of themselves longer. This is a large reason the number of spa locations grew from 4,140 in 1999 to 19,900 in 2010*.  Just like we maintain our cars and homes, caring for the human body takes effort. To help improve one’s health, everyone should consider visiting his or her local spa. If you’ve never been, you might be wondering what a spa can do for you.

Spa: (n) a business devoted especially to health, fitness, weight loss, beauty, or relaxation through a variety of professional services that encourage the renewal of self. Staff members are licensed professionals that service their client through education and efficient use of natural resources and energy. Most spas work with these natural resources to promote health and healing while sustaining the planet.

Choosing a spa versus your local hair salon, massage parlor, nutritionist, or skincare office can help you maximize the use of your time. Your best bet is to find a location close to work or home. 

There are a wide variety of spas and services offered. Most spas help you relieve stress, one of the major causes of disease and health deterioration. The choices include day spas, therapeutic spas, massage spas, medical spas, salon spas, and wellness centers. It’s not about which spa you choose. It’s about following the advice from the famous Nike tagline: “Just do it.”
