Wellness Trends to Watch, According to the Co-Founder of MINDBODY

Unless you’ve been living on a deserted island, you’ve likely noticed that over the past few years wellness has permeated every cell of American culture. According to the Global Wellness Institute, the global wellness industry grew by more than 10 percent from 2013 to 2015, making it a $3.72 trillion market. And if anyone has their finger on the pulse of this massive field, it’s co-founder and CEO of MINDBODY Rick Stollmeyer.
