Rising Inequality

Article, original by the Global Wellness Institute, on access to wellness. Original Here


The “gig economy” is certain to exacerbate inequalities and the “fissured workplace” (a notion coined by the U.S. labour economist that explains why real wages may remain stagnant despite increases in the minimum wage). Artificial intelligence and robotics are already making many jobs un-competitive, while for many hard-pressed workers, the sharing economy often resembles a “sharing the scraps” economy. The fact that there is not, as yet, an effective plan or program to deal with the possibility of more severe inequality should be a cause for serious concern. To paraphrase the Nobel economist, Bob Shiller, today’s economic inequality may become tomorrow’s political catastrophe (by giving rise to an explosion in populism).

I’m a member of the Bali Lounge and for me this is money well spent. I feel this is just as important to you as going to the gym or even consulting a doctor. And the Bali Health Lounge do it the best.Daniel B, Member at Bali Health Lounge

Inequalities, which are already reflected in the wellness space (how individuals eat, exercise, consume wellness services, etc., is, of course, correlated with income levels), will be exacerbated even further.

Nutrigenomics, or the science of how our genes determine how we metabolize and utilize nutrients, provides such an example. Some companies and clinics (like the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic) now offer nutritional genetic testing to individuals willing to better manage chronic diseases and/or to receive tailor-made nutritional advice.

Bali Health Lounge Tackles Unaffordable Treatments Through Membership

Access to high quality massage and facial treatments at affordable rates didn’t exist, which is why we created it.

In the UK it is common place to see over priced 5* hotels delivering poor quality treatments, or alternatively, sub-standard local high street salon practitioners. This is why Bali Health Lounge created it’s innovative membership programme.

Membership from £45/month

Includes monthly massages and saving of £24 compared to non-member prices!

Starting from £45 per month, which includes a 60 minute massage or facial, it offers access to regular treatments at significantly reduced prices. Not only are the treatments affordable but they are performed by the best therapists in the country, as demonstrated by the recent award of Massage Therapist of the Year to our senior therapist.

Full of additional benefits such as special member rates for additional treatments, discounted products, offers from local business partners it is no wonder the scheme has attracted over 500 members since it’s launch in 2015.
