The wellness industry has been steadily growing now for quite some time and usually, certain trends take off. But since the Covid-19 pandemic wreaked havoc in our lives, the wellness industry has completely shifted and preventative treatments have now taken the lead.
Online, at-home wellness has seen a much needed increase over the last year. Whether it’s telemedicine, virtual therapy, meditation apps, digital fitness platforms — and even reiki classes, at-home wellness has taken off. As soon as the pandemic hit, there was an almost immediate increase in people engaging in some kind of online class. — And rightfully so; virtual and at-home wellness services are much more accessible to everyone. People are more comfortable operating out of the comfort of their own space.
The pandemic has accelerated the shift from traditional western medicines to a more preventive approach. Previously, consumers were more focused on treating health issues as they arose, however, since last march, more and more people are adopting methods to stay healthy to prevent the health issues in the first place. With an emphasis on exercise, healthy food, sleep, and stress reduction, consumers are using more science-backed strategies that support your body’s individual needs.
There’s also a growing emphasis on regular check-ups with physicians, flu-shots, and health optimization optimizing your energy levels, body composition — an overall sense of wellness.
