In a poll commissioned by the American Massage Therapy Association, 90% of those believe that massage can be beneficial to your health and 73% of those polled would recommend massage therapy to someone that they know. This poll is just an indication of the growing market of health-conscious people who see the benefits of having a regular massage.

In addition, there are always people either on vacation or a business trip who just want to relax and unwind. Add these factors together and business in the travel and leisure industries, like hotels, are coming to believe that having massage services available for their guests is an integral part of the services they provide for guests.

But, of course, having a masseuse on demand 24/7 would be next to impossible and expensive. That is where the SpaCapsule from Simulated Environment Concepts Inc. (SMEV.PK) becomes a ‘must-have’ product. The SpaCapsule is a self-contained full body automated massage system.

The SpaCapsule offers a unique fusion of modern technology and time-tested healing methods of massage, aromatherapy and audio-visual relaxation techniques. It can be very convenient and enjoyable for hotel guests. There is no undressing, no messy oil or lotions, no touching by strangers, and no appointments – so no waiting. Guests can just put coins or tokens into the machine and enjoy a self-service relaxing, stress-relieving environment.

Particularly in a difficult economy where the competition for customers is fierce, hotels are finding that a product like SpaCapsule offers guests a “perk” – a little extra that makes them more likely to gain repeat customers and for those customers to recommend the hotel to friends and family. Hotels may find that having SpaCapsule raises the stress levels on their competitors.
