Millennials have have discovered their obsession with wellness and self-care and are embracing it. All inclusive wellness spaces are popping up in cities across the United States that cater to the unique set of needs associated with self-love and health.
Self-care comes in many forms: a face mask and cucumbers on your eyes, an hour of Kundalini Yoga, pressed juices packed full of antioxidants, a meditation space… Wellness spaces are becoming our hang outs of choice. The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) stated that the global wellness industry grew 12.8% between 2015 and 2017. We continue to see exponential growth over time. It is now a $4.2 trillion market. The search for wellness and self-care brings many to farm-to-table restaurants, boutique yoga studios, spas, and meetups where members can stay active together.
Businesses like the Clean Market and are beginning to transform people’s lives by providing an all inclusive package for wellness. The Clean Market was created by Lily Kunin in hopes of providing a one-stop-shop for New Yorker’s to satisfy their wellness needs. She shares, “At Clean Market, our goal is to inspire people to incorporate healthy habits into everyday life. We believe these daily rituals are the key to feeling well. With our first shop in NYC, we are connecting our community to products and services designed to elevate health and overall well-being. Our commitment is to deliver this in a calming, intelligent, and feel good environment. This is modern wellness for everyone, everyday.”
The idea is that you walk in to the Clean Market and step away from the hectic outside world surrounding you in New York City. For an hour or two, you can decompress and surround yourself with positive energy. Think of it as a luxury retreat in your own backyard. Once inside, you’ll find yourself in an inviting and comfortable environment where you can focus on the cornerstones of health and wellness, “energy, flow, detox, brain, immunity, beauty, and gut health.” As you explore their menu and take full advantage of the services offered at Clean Market, you can also get some shopping done and take home specially selected products that Clean Market believes will improve your health, wellness, and beauty routine.
If you’re in Manhattan, wander in to enjoy something from the market’s Power Shot Bar or relax by a quiet window and sip on a fresh, antioxidant packed smoothie (and guess what? CBD is optional if you’d like some additional health benefits). The Clean Market believes in modern apothecary and only includes products they have full faith in when it comes to health and wellness. If you’re seeking some nutritional guidance when it comes to detoxifying your body, building immunity, improving gut health, or boosting mood, they’ll have something for you to try. Once you’re done sipping on your nutritious breakfast, hang out and read a book in the Nutridrip Drip Lounge (their IV Drip and Booster Shot Lounge) or stop by the “chemo-therapy lounge” to enjoy an infrared sauna, whole body cryotherapy, or cryofacial.
Once you’re finished, you’ll leave feeling detoxified and rejuvenated. Plus who doesn’t like burning 400 calories every 2-3 minutes during whole body cryotherapy sessions?! The Clean Market states, “We are dedicated to helping you feel your best by providing you with purposeful nutrition, effective products, and innovative services to optimize, energize, and transform your life. We’re on a mission to feel better, live better, compete better, and look better – with the ultimate goal of living life to the fullest.”
Individuals in cities across the world are seeking out a way to incorporate wellness into their daily routines and businesses are responding promptly. There is only so much time in one day to work, prepare nourishing meals, exercise, meditate, and enjoy the company of those around you. When you have the opportunity to get everything done in one place, it makes wellness routines more manageable.
Other businesses like ChillHouse also aim to be modern centers for self-care and wellness. Sip on a “Chill Me Out Latte” featuring lavender, butterfly pea, Vanilla, Ashwaganda, Reishi, Mucuna Puriens, Lavandin or try out their “Toasted Palmer” with CBD from Green Witch, Genmaicha, Arnold Palmer, and Lemon Juice. CBD tinctures and chill house powders are the base of their wellness lattes. Once you’re feeling refreshed, stop by their nail salon to enjoy a luxurious mani-pedi with non-toxic products and nourishing creams for your skin. Still feeling the need to relax? They also provide full body massages with extras like Himalayan Glow to balance your pH levels or CBD Focus to provide anti-inflammatory properties to your massage. We’re sold.
Bodyism provides 360 holistic services to their members. This wellness company has a Flagship Club for getting fit, a Bodyism cafe for recharging, and a variety of other services including workplace wellness, supplements, and performance specialists to aid your journey to wellness. Bryan, a member of Bodyism shares, “Bodyism is unique and not just another high end gym. Everything from the personal training to the classes, the cafe and the supplements are great, but it’s especially the people and friendly attitude that makes coming in feel like home.”
As this trend takes hold, we believe we will be seeing a lot more of these all inclusive wellness facilities popping up!
