The start of the year is the perfect time to examine new and popular wellness treatments. With mental wellbeing on everyone’s minds, it comes as no surprise that many current well-received treatments are designed to relax the mind. Get inspired as we take a look at five of the newest and popular wellness treatments set to take 2020 by storm.
With over 50 per cent of the world’s population now living in urban areas, many are wanting wellness treatments in natural environments. Forest bathing has become popular as a result, immersing one’s self in an environment of flora and fauna to relax. Enhancing your spa with natural elements such as outdoor areas with water or plant life are cited to create a calming effect and reduce anxiety.
Regular sleep is vital for maintaining productivity and wellbeing, which is why napping has become a popular wellness treatment. Nap bars have emerged all over the world to take a midday snooze, whilst nap pods have become hotly requested in businesses. With sleep effecting wellness, it may be time to incorporate nap-style treatments (which include lavender oil facials or aromatherapy) in your spa.
Sound baths are unusual wellness treatments which involve being surrounded by specific frequencies of vibration. Sometimes used in meditation or yoga, the sound frequencies trigger certain areas of the brain and activate chakra points to help relieve tension. Crystal singing bowls, high-frequency instruments and gongs are all that’s really needed to create this increasingly popular treatment.
Many occupations involve sitting at a desk, which means wellness treatments that improve posture have proved prevalent for 2020. Cupping is just one of these treatments, which places cups or silicone on the backs of clients to lift connective tissue in muscles. The aim is to improve muscle recovery and lift your fascia, helping to combat long workdays of bad posture.
Breathing and meditation
Meditation was an immensely popular wellness treatment last year and is set to prove successful this year, too. Intense workouts require a suitable cooldown, which is where breathing techniques and meditative practices come in. Studies have shown that practising 25 minutes of controlled breathing can improve cognitive function and calm the mind, making them popular post workout or during yoga.
