For an expanding market, economy and industry will in future be in increasing need of skills in the prevention and wellness areas. People’s stress is increasing just like the number of elderly and old people and the duration of occupational disability up to retirement age. Everybody wishes to keep or regain health as a valuable possession. Growing concern about a healthy life-style will become even more significant in future. The need for peace and rest and regeneration of the body in suitable surroundings within a short time, matched with personal needs, will grow just like the demand for appropriate offers for prevention, for suitable recommendations for a healthy diet, for suitable cosmetic products and medication which are available without prescription.
