Can spas support spiritual wellbeing?

“I believe a huge and impactful wellness trend for 2023 is spiritual wellbeing, a term that refers to a person's sense of connection to something larger than themselves, such as a higher power, a set of spiritual beliefs, or a sense of meaning and purpose in life. This aspect of wellbeing is often associated with feelings of peace, contentment, and inner harmony, and it can play an important role in overall health and wellness."

Jenelle Kim, doctor of Chinese medicine and author of Myung Sung: The Korean Art of Living Meditation, was quoted in Forbes, citing spiritual wellbeing as a key wellness trend this year. So, can spas really support spiritual wellbeing?

From a personal perspective, we think this probably depends on two things - what you personally want from your spa experience, and which spa you choose to go to. In a general sense however, Kim's particular take on spirituality is an interesting one, that rings true.

The idea that a sense of peace within your own mind and body can help contribute to a sense of spiritual wellness is one that many seasoned spa goers will identify with. For some, simply having the space to reconnect will contribute towards that goal. For others, specific practices, ranging from mediation and breath work to energy healing treatments will play a more proactive role.
