A recent article in The New York Times reports that some salons and spas in the US have begun pairing nail treatments with meditation.
In her article called ‘Manicures Are Getting Mindful’, Shivani Vora reports that a wellness-inspired salon in New York City, called Sundays, provides headsets for clients so that they can listen to guided meditations during their manicures and pedicures. Vora, who experienced the treatment herself, describes it as ‘a full-on self-care session’.
According to the article, the owner of the salon, Amy Ling Lin decided to add meditation to the salon’s menu after realising her clients were short on time for themselves.
In the meantime, as per The Global Wellness Institute, meditation is one of the fastest growing segments of the wellness market.
