A growing market
Alternative providers, such as acupuncturists, massage therapists and yoga instructors, will be a growing market in the coming years. These treatments were already gaining wider acceptance among the public (and health insurance companies) even before last year’s health insurance reform law added provisions to increase support for alternative treatments.
The industry’s revenue is forecast to grow by 4.3 percent annually for the next five years, reaching $14.4 billion by 2016. Because of the increase in healthy living and self care, the world has never committed more than now to their own personal wellness!
