Fireside Chat on Growing Your Spa with Touchless Services

One of the fastest growing trends in the spa business as we hopefully emerge from the worst of the COVID business closings is touchless spa services. So, the Global Wellness Institute’s Halotherapy Initiative is having a Fireside Chat to discuss these services with some industry leaders at 1 pm ET on Wednesday September 30. CLICK HERE if you would like to register.

As you might have guessed, these services like halotherapy, infrared sauna, cryotherapy and light therapy, don’t require any spa personnel to directly interact with the customer and the equipment can be easily cleaned and disinfected in between visits. This not only makes the services potentially safer but also reduces the cost to support.

For this discussion GWI Halotherapy Initiative chair and Halotherapy Solutions CEO Steve Spiro will be joined by award-winning spa consultant Amy McDonald CEO of Under A Tree Wellness Consulting and Tammy Pahel, the VP of Spa and Wellness Operations at the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort.

What’s the Top Spa Trend Post Coronovirus?

The impact of COVID-19 has been monumental in the Spa industry. From devastating closures (both part-time and permanently) to customers not wanting to return for their standard massages & facials and little interest in participating in big group/close together fitness classes, it’s been a very tough 6 months and this impact will likely last longer.
In response, the smartest spas are adapting quickly to the new reality. The two single biggest changes are the addition/promotion of “Touchless services” and “respiratory wellness modalities”.
Some of the Touchless services include cryotherapy, Halotherapy, and lightstim therapy. The #1 respiratory wellness modality being added is Halotherapy which helps with respiratory health, hygiene and immunity boosting. Note that Halotherapy is on both lists.
As discussed in a recent Washington Post Article, “entering a spa will definitely have a more clinical feel compared with the past, starting from the moment you book treatments. Tammy Pahel, vice president of spa and wellness operations at [our partner] Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, says minimal human contact is the objective now, no matter how antithetical that might seem to the spa concept.”
The Carillon also offers totally touchless treatments. One involves lying down on warm Himalayan salt, pushing a button on the massage bed, and getting a 25-minute massage from the nape of the neck to the middle of the back. “It’s calm, soothing and antibacterial,” Pahel says in the Post Article.
Halotherapy Solutions’ Halo-IR combination of halotherapy and infrared sauna and the new HaloCave personal salt cave are great examples of these new touchless services.

Halotherapy and the Touchless Spa Experience

The touchless spa experience may be the immediate future for spas and halotherapy and infrared sauna are right at the top of the list.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic as well as the myriad state and federal guidelines for reopening spas and fitness centers, owners and managers are struggling to provide enough services to cover costs.

Touchless services or those that can be provided without the need for a massage therapist or instructor or any direct interaction with customers are helping bridge that gap. Halotherapy combined with Infrared Sauna as it is in Halotherapy Solutions’ Halo-IR™ product is the perfect example of this new wave.

Among others, the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, is leading the charge with a menu of new touchless services available including the Halo-IR™ and their offerings are highlighted on
