M'Lisa Jackson, President of M'lis (mlis.com):

"Wellness products are thriving in the spa setting and the idea that 'Inner health reelects outer beauty' has now become a fundamental truth. I believe that using this message to boost holistic retail products and spa services will double your income in 2014.

"When it comes to wellness, you don't need to be perfect yourself, but you do need to be serious about your goals to project your business as a complete wellness/spa retreat, where everyone seeking a change is welcome and accepted as they are.

"Some other major industry trends we will see in 2014 include nutritional and mentoring programs, non-invasive therapies, natural and organic products, and increased education on how diet, exercise, stress, sleep and water intake relate to healthy hair, skin and nails.
