Why Wellness Matters
Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. ... Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.
As the population ages, health care costs increase, medical science continues to reveal new discoveries, we become more educated consumers, and the interest in pro-active “self-care” or 'wellness," has become one of the world's fastest-growing industries. -- Travel to Wellness
The Wellness Adventure Travel Club, with over 2000 members nationally, is now a major part of our editorial format. Nothing is more important than our mental and physical health. Nothing.
A hotel that provides wellness amenities thinks differently about how they want you to experience their city. The experience is the biggest benefit you receive from staying at a participating hotel.
Many wellness resorts offer comprehensive educational programming that focuses on physical and spiritual health. Group discussions led by experienced staff (all conducted in a judgment-free environment) that aim to address the psychological, logistical or other roadblocks preventing people from reaching their optimal health and wellness. To ensure departing guests have the tools to implement the knowledge they’ve acquired once they return home, a robust library of resources is made available. These include demonstration exercise and yoga posture videos; recipes, articles and other resources, as well as the contact information of the staff they worked with. This helps set guests up for success well beyond their wellness retreat.
