The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) is engaged in a variety of projects designed to educate and inform the public and private sectors about wellness.

Research is a core focus. Each year, the GWI produces global statistics for the wellness industry and commissions a comprehensive research project, resulting in the publication of a major report on a topic of relevance and importance to the field. The GWI is currently working on a new report updating figures for the global spa and wellness economy, which were last measured in 2013 at $3.4 trillion. Along with the industry research reports, the GWI also curates research from other credible sources (Global Wellness Brief, We make all of this available at no cost on the GWI website.

The GWI wants to continue providing free education on preventive health and wellness for anyone, anywhere. Donors, like you, make this possible.
