What is a Wellness Home?

What are wellness homes?

Stress, food habits and environment all have an impact on our health. A wellness home is a space that is created keeping in mind the environment that a person needs for healthier living.

Wellness homes offer home buyers a healthier and sustainable living space. Most of these wellness homes concentrate on a few basic factors like air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, mind and comfort.

 Wellness home features may include:

  • Pure “hospital-grade” air and clean water using advanced purification systems or by using indoor self-irrigating vertical gardens
  • Vitamin C packed shower filters that remove any traces of chlorine in the water
  • Pathways based on reflexology
  • Aromatherapy dispensers fitted at many locations
  • Homes designed for ‘wellness’ also pay a lot of attention to the lighting inside the house, so that it energises you during the day and induces better sleep at night by regulating your melatonin levels.
  • Groups of homes, or wellness communities, may have fitness and meditation centres and in-house nutritionists available on the premises.
  • Some communities even have organic farms that provide unadulterated and chemical-free produce to the occupants

Most of these features are aimed at attracting health-conscious consumers who would be willing to pay what is needed to lead a healthier lifestyle.
