In case you missed it, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle company Goop hosted its second annual wellness summit in New York over the weekend on Mar. 9. Dubbed “In Goop Health,” the summit took place in Manhattan’s Seaport District, offering wellness acolytes an entire floor of workshops, panels, and a retail hall filled with Goop-approved products like facial serums and candles. As Women’s Wear Daily reports, the 600 attendees were predominantly dressed in athleisure, ready for everything their $1,000 all-access tickets had to offer.
Though the products and health information Goop endorses have come under fire in the past, both in lawsuits and by medical professionals, many people in the industry see these summits as early trend reports on what's going to be big in wellness in the coming months. From psychic medium readings to unlimited kombucha, the event was a wellness fan’s dream. The summit explored topics like plant-based medicine, financial health, and how to beat burnout with a variety of authors, researchers, doctors, and wellness professionals (think mediums, acupuncturists, and “healers”). Considering Paltrow’s influence when it comes to trends in the wellness space (Crystals! Moon dusts! Yoga?), the event offered a glimpse into what the future of the industry might look like.
Ahead, these are three main wellness trends from the summit that you’ll want to know about for the year ahead.
