A Therapist's Day: A View of What Should Take Place in the Future Wellness Environment

By Michael Koethner Wellness & Healing Consultant, Spa Transition | January 17, 2016

The next few years, and the distant future, will see the profession of alternative therapy (i.e. naturopathy, homeopathy, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, energy alignment, soul healing, fitness, exercise and the likes) in much higher demand than at any rate and time before. The increasing demand for complementary therapies will unfold itself through the yet unseen energetic forces of the soul and spirit. These two entities will ignite a fire with the human body volcano to release deeply repressed and unresolved issues; regardless of the mental, spiritual and/or physical condition of the individual. It is going to happen across the globe, stretching into every tiny corner of society; the business environment must be ready to accommodate its demand and be open to new opportunities, not the other way around.

These two sources of life will also put immense pressure on the planet as to shake up humanity in all other aspects of earthly living, in a never seen before rate and speed. It will finally re-invigorate the very powerful and true natural healing process on this planet. The process will have a profound impact on everyone and everything in order to regain the true universal power, which lies within. The time has come, to openly, and vigorously confront every situation that inhibits humanity and its environment from learning, understanding and evolving into the life we meant to live.

The next generation of wellness centers and spas require therapists to be leaders in their own rights and profession, coherent, complete and in alignment with their environment. They must have a determination, obligation, passion and inspiration, extensive skills and accumulated knowledge in order to provide sacred and mystical treatments; whilst being fully aware of their inherent regenerating powers, to guide others through this extraordinary time of adaptation and change. Therapists who focus on quick fixes, vanity make-up and superficial treatments will no longer be able to perform such tricks in order to enhance the business performance, or to justify a balance sheet.

The key driving business factor and performance index for any wellness enterprise in the near future, is knowing how to create a complete and integrated project and vision, and to make sure that people are carefully selected, receive continued education and heartfelt recognition. They must also be able to fully grasp the immense healing powers of our times, yet to come. The knowing and feeling of belonging and acceptance ensures a smooth business flow and eliminates the constant intimidation and interference by superiors who are obsessed with a process of micro management.

There is a process, a paradigm shift, under way that can no longer be stopped. It is a deep inherent and profound urge, in humanity, to set itself free of absolutely everything that is limiting the development and blocking the need for growth, in order to move into a more evolved stage of spiritual existence. The majority of earth’s humanity is finally waking up, starting to see physical evidence of the invisible powers that are hidden beneath their ego identity. The pressure to overcome its self imposed limitations is still gentle, yet firm, relentlessly demanding, until it has reached the boiling point in every cell, within each person, partnership, family; in every company, firm and corporation. Without restrictions to continents, countries, societies, civilizations, color, heritage, gender, believe systems, dogmas, and/or religious activities, there will be grand fireworks of joy, happiness, relieve and freedom at the end of a long journey through a very dark tunnel; paired with the sure knowing that it is more powerful than anything ever seen or felt before.

The changes in our exterior environment, such as the collapse of outdated, and partly rotten, company systems are just a confirmation of this long overdue change. The present naiveté and very immature mentality is going to diminish, fading away for good, and right in front of our eyes. This is, and will be replaced with a more mature and very powerful force of coherent, supportive, loving and universal spiritual life force; a connective, collaborative energy that encapsulates all facets of the inter-dimensional human entity, including the mind, body, soul and spirit. The one’s who are ready for this new environment will evolve into the next dimension, leaving all currently known earthly restrictions and limitations behind forever. It is going to be very exciting, and we will see it all come to pass; this is now a fact and any argumentation against it will be a farce to say the least.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
