SpaFinder's annual forecast report: feet, ice and gaming among top trends for 2012
BY Tom Walker



Healthy feet treatments, cold and ice therapies and online gaming are among the top spa themes for 2012, according to the ninth annual trends forecast by global spa and wellness resource SpaFinder.

Charting the year ahead, the report also predicts that health coaching at spas will become more popular while there will also be consolidation between hotels' spa and gastronomic offerings and an increase in "spa, wine and dine" packages.

The full list of trends for 2012:
1. Healthy Feet Treatments
2. Cold and Ice Treatments
3. Wellness and Beauty Coaching
4. Online Wellness Gaming
5. Spa, Wine and Dine Packages
6. Vibration, Sound, Music, Light and Color Therapies
7. The Glam Factor
8. Spa Evidence
9. Spa Becomes a Family Affair
10. Spas Aim for the "Wow" Factor

The list is based on analyses from SpaFinder Research and its team of experts who visit hundreds of spa and wellness businesses around the world every year.

SpaFinder also conducts interviews with leading industry analysts and takes into account data and feedback collected from SpaFinder's partnerships with more 15,000 spas, yoga, pilates and fitness studios, wellness practitioners and salons worldwide.
