Top Holistic Wellness Trends of 2021

Top Holistic Wellness Trends of 2021 | SF Custom Chiropractic

2021 is set to be a year of recovery. The world is emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the pandemic has rearranged priorities for countless millions, giving rise to people paying better attention to their own needs and wellness. As such, here’s a look at the top wellness trends of the year.

Chiropractic Care

To say that this has been a strange year for our bodies would be a vast, vast understatement. More people worked from home and changed their physical routines. Some people took up exercise – others gave it up completely. All of this has given way to a rise in physical complaints endured by our joints and muscles. Thankfully, this has meant that more people have taken up regular chiropractic care. More importantly, they have discovered that chiropractic care is about so much more than addressing illness, but is an important component of bodily wellness. Indeed, regular chiropractic care can help keep us healthy and well.


For the same reasons as noted above, people have discovered massage. Massage unquestionably took a hit during the pandemic, but with most people who want to be vaccinated having done so, many have rediscovered the practice of massage as a great way to deal with aches and pains while keeping our bodies tuned up.

Telehealth for Mental Health

The COVID pandemic forced many to reevaluate their mental health, noting the various ways that care is needed. Indeed, one of the wellness trends that is impossible to miss this year has been a desperately needed emphasis on mental health. Telehealth has emerged as a popular way of allowing people easy access to therapists and counselors, ensuring that they can get the help they need without ever even leaving their homes. 


Acupuncture is the ancient eastern art of using needles to stimulate certain energy points in a person’s body. It can be used to address certain illnesses and reduce pain. The practice has evolved substantially over time, becoming more in tune with modern medical needs. For many, it has become an important part of overall wellness and physical care, and this is a trend that is likely to accelerate over time. 

Functional Nutrition

It is impossible to talk about holistic wellness without talking about functional nutrition. Functional nutrition is the idea that people need to take a broader and more customized look at their nutrition trends, taking lifestyle choices, activity levels, and more into account. From there, people will use their lives to better determine nutritional choices that make sense for them. Functional nutrition has become more popular as people take a more holistic view of what their bodies and minds need.

Virtual Wellness

The pandemic may be ending, but that doesn’t mean that all of the trends from it are going away. Indeed, as noted above, the COVID-19 pandemic brought healing and wellness into many of our homes. As a result, people have become more in tune with the idea that many services that seemed less than convenient are truly accessible to us. This includes the idea that many services – such as mental health, physical therapy, classes, and nutrition – can be accessed by recorded classes or live digital ones. This, in turn, has brought virtual wellness to us.
The top wellness trends change from person to person, but this much is clear: 2021 is giving people a chance to reorder their priorities and better care for themselves. Holistic wellness and the above wellness trends can and should be a big part of how you take care of yourself, and there is no shortage of ways to do just that.
