Empowering Wellness Worldwide Begins With You


The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) has a straightforward mission to empower wellness worldwide by educating the public and private sectors about preventative health and wellness.

Researchers, journalists, academia, industry business and thought leaders look to the GWI as the global research and educational resource for the $3.7 trillion spa and wellness industry. 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. 

A hallmark of the GWI is making all of the valuable information and resources available at no cost which allows anyone, anywhere to access the free education. Becoming a GWI Ambassador helps make this possible, while also giving you access to exclusive benefits.
