Wellness Tourism: Wellness tourism is a segment of the health tourism industry that is growing at a tremendous rate. What makes wellness tourism different? Wellness tourism is more than just going to a spa for a massage or a facial. It’s about transformative experiences that feed your mind, body and spirit. Maybe it’s sitting quietly while gazing over grassy fields, or visiting an Ayurvedic retreat, or immersing yourself in the experience of an Onsen. Wellness activities are regenerative, restorative, and proactive in supporting healthy living. Wellness tourism is experiential and personal. Participants will gain an understanding of the various aspects of wellness tourism, its evolution and how to engage in this expanding area. Developed by Jennifer Aarons Teaching Specialist Hospitality, Tourism and Event Management Stockton University
