2016 Spa Trends

9th Mar 2016

These four spa trends are expected to take the world by storm in 2016. Every year, new techniques experiences and technology surfaces that aims to increase the health and wellness of people all over the world, much like the new sensory experience AlphaSphere Deluxe at SenSpa that induces deep relaxation. Find out the spa trends which are on the rise in 2016:

1. Mindfullness & Wellness

Practicing mindfulness is to making yourself more conscious and aware of yourself, your surroundings and the present moment.  More studies have been conducted on mindfulness in the past year, which has shown to boost brain performance, creative thinking, alleviate stress, decrease anxiety and even minimise chronic pain which promotes overall wellness.

The AlphaSphere Deluxe helps to relax the body and regenerate the mind with a unique sensory experience. It focuses on the human senses, creating a whole body and mind experience that focuses on the perception of sound, colour, light, vibration, touch, temperature and smell.

The  trend has experienced a surge in popularity recently due to the growing demand for a healthier mind amongst those seeking wellness.

2. Adrenaline & Zen Combination

The definition of adrenaline has changed; zip lining and white water rafting is no longer considered outrageous as insane activities like wing suit flying and barefoot free climbing are the activities daredevils prefer these days. As the rate and intensity of adrenaline rises, people are seeking these thrills followed by a dose of spa relaxation. The combination of adrenaline rush followed by meditation and massage refreshes and quietens the brain.

3. Forest Bathing

Forest bathing is the practice of applying mindfulness during a forest walk. Whilst quietly walking, exploring the sound, scents and colours of the forest intently helps to ‘bathe’ the psyche with the forest’s essence. Forest Bathing has been proven to lower blood pressure, heart rate and cortisol levels as well as alleviates stress and depression.

4. Blue Collar Wellness

Work is the leading cause of stress in most cases and employers are starting to tap into the benefits of relieving that stress for their employees.  A few high profile companies are starting to adopt this line of thinking, such as American Apparel. Their employees are provided affordable health insurance, an onsite medical clinic, subsidized healthy food and fitness options.

Our services at SenSpa include a fantastic variety of stress reducing and fitness related benefits for staff. A popular option amongst local companies is a corporate gym membership for a welcomed employee perk. A luxury spa day or treatment voucher is a great staff reward or incentive. It can be used as an alternative to typical events such as golf days, especially for a female networking or team-building event.

If you’re planning an event why not add a class with one of the SenSpa fitness instructors or a workshop with a therapist once the event is over? After a meeting or conference held at Careys Manor Hotel, we can offer delegates a 20-minute shoulder massage on top of their clothes.
