Dramatic Increase – Buy Your Massage Table Now

The level of spas and massage franchises are increasing dramatically every day. There has never been a better time in history to get into massage therapy and get your massage table. A recent study by the International Spa Association on industry spa trends showed that over two million spa-goers attended lifestyle classes in 2005. Showing that spa-goers consider spa visits as a necessity or entitlement and for general health as opposed to being pampered. According to ISPA president Lynne Walker McNees “One in four American adults have been to a spa and know what they want from a quality spa experience. The trends are being driven by educated spa-goers who actually see them as expectations.”

Other highlights of the study include:

  • Thirty-one percent of spa-goers are men who are going to spas looking for experiences tailored specifically to males.
  • Sixty-three percent of U.S. spa-goers have visited a spa while traveling.
  • There is an increase in mothers who are buying products designed for them and their babies.
  • Spa-goers are drawn to indigenous treatments and products, especially when traveling.
  • Spa-goers want spa experiences that are customized to their personal needs and desires.
  • Eighty percent of U.S. spa-goers admit they use their time at the spa as an opportunity to socialize, and therefore, many spas are catering to this trend.
  • Some spas, especially those located in urban areas, are adding residential components to their facilities, and many real estate developers are building spas in gated communities and condominium

These kinds of trends affect the massage table industry greatly and will continue to bolster new growth in the alternative health industry. One thing that always accompanies new growth is a raise in equipment prices. That’s why it’s far better to start now before it becomes more costly.
