The wellness industry in India has evolved rapidly in the last few years. Improved health awareness and exposure to global beauty and ­fashion trends are driving growth in the wellness space. The need to look and feel good has led to a growing demand for spa ­therapists. Spa therapy includes holistic therapies, beauty therapy, fitness and nutrition.

There has been immense growth in the spa ­industry during the past decade. It is, therefore, not ­surprising that spas are facing shortage of skilled and trained persons. According to the FICCI-PwC report on ‘Imperatives for growth – The wellness industry 2013,’ the wellness industry is expected to touch Rs. 1 trillion by 2015, growing at CAGR of 15%-17%, from the level of Rs. 700 billion in 2012. This represents a growth of more than 18% over the previous year.
