The trend: Therapy-level retreats “There’s a growing appreciation for taking care of your mind as well as you take care of your body,” says Adam Gazzaley, MD, Ph.D., David Dolby Distinguished Professor at University of California, San Francisco and founder and executive director of Neuroscape. “There’s always been a niche mental wellness community built around meditation, mindfulness, and nature exposure, but that is expanding greatly,” he says, citing an increase in mindfulness apps as well as retreats—some offering a therapy-level experience—geared toward all wellness verticals.  The trend: Psychedelics for mental health  More research is happening in this space, says Gazzaley, including on ecstasy as a treatment for PTSD and the benefits of mushrooms on depression—and how they stack up against SSRIs. Digital delivery of wellness is also prevalent here, with ketamine treatments now available through a virtual coach, he notes.

The trend: The wearable evolution “The proliferation of wearable technology and its increased sophistication, coupled with the introduction of new data points once limited to the clinical space, like blood glucose, will help people learn about themselves on a much deeper level,” says Matt Delaney, Equinox’s head of innovation. This increased awareness, however, does not always lead to increased understanding, he says, and that’s why more people will enlist the help of qualified coaches who can turn the data into actionable insights. After all, it's not the data you change, the behaviors that lead to the data is where the opportunity to improve lies. “Giving individuals behavioral recommendations based on their unique physiology and lifestyle is critical to setting them up for success and look for it to be a priority in 2022.”
