Get Fit, Get Well, Any Time, Anywhere

Spafinder Wellness* has launched The Wellness App, a first-of-its-kind mobile technology for iOS and Android, with 25,000 providers from across the fitness, spa and wellness industries coming together to create an extraordinary offering for wellness consumers around the globe.

“For the first time, people can use an app to find, book and pay for services at an unprecedented number of fitness, yoga and Pilates studios, spas and wellness travel destinations,” says Pete Ellis, Spafinder Wellness CEO and chairman.

“And Wellness App users constantly earn rewards: whether they’re booking a class or treatment, loading funds or a Spafinder Mobile Wellness 365 Gift Card, or writing a review.

“Additionally, the app will send users geo-targeted notifications of nearby promotions and specials in real time.


“Never before has such a vast network of wellness providers come together in a mobile application.”

Behind the scenes, the Spafinder Wellness platform allows for payment processing to these locations with the app, even though they have uncommon point-of-sale or booking systems.

Mobile and internet connectivity makes this unique app functionality available to consumers and businesses. It is especially attractive to employers who have workplace wellness programs or incentive/rewards companies that promote healthy lifestyles.

“Consumers who receive Spafinder Wellness 365 Cards as gifts, incentives or rewards will be able to download them to the app and use them to purchase from providers in the Spafinder Wellness Network,” says Pete Ellis.

“The Wellness App is also fully integrated with the company’s rewards program, My365Rewards, awarding users points for a variety of in-app and on-site behaviours.

“The new app features well known wellness providers, including brands such as Bliss, Equinox, Mandarin Oriental, Canyon Ranch, Elemis, Curves and Zeel, the massage-on-demand company, as well as at many thousands of solely-owned spas, salons, fitness and yoga studios and alternative medicine centres.


“Its one thing for big corporate franchises, like Starbucks or Hyatt hotels, to offer a global payment/rewards app.

“But The Wellness App makes payment and booking work at all of Spafinder’s 25,000 partners. It lets people find, pay and get rewarded at more locations than Starbucks’ app does for coffee (21,000 global locations) – with more relaxing results!”

Sean Harrington, president of English organic skincare brand Elemis, says: “With the launch of the Spafinder Wellness App we see spa, wellness and technology finally coming together to offer a seamless journey for owners and consumers.”

Finding ways to feel good and stay healthy should be easy for consumers to find, book and pay for services they choose – and be rewarded, adds Pete Ellis.

“For existing Spafinder Wellness users, the experience begins with a seamless transition of their rewards points and account information after they log in to the app,” he says.

“For new users, it’s about an easy connection to their next great wellness experience.”


The Wellness App, developed by Spafinder Wellness’ technology team, with support from Miami-based technology agency YellowPepper, breaks new ground. It allows users to:

  • Discover a global network of wellness providers: Choose a provider based on location, services, pricing or reviews. Try a new location or connect directly with a trusted provider.
  • Real-time bookings: Make an appointment or reserve a class at select partners (live in May).
  • Pay for services: Consumers can pay for services with the app, using a secure account with the in-app card and barcode scanner. They can also reload funds with a linked credit card.
  • Earn points and rewards: All in-app behaviors are linked to the Spafinder My365Rewards Program, meaning that users earn points for everything from loading their Mobile Wellness Cards, booking classes and treatments, paying for services to even writing reviews. Points can be used toward services at partner locations.
  • Get location-based, real-time promotions and special offers: With local searches, users also get notification of nearby deals. When they achieve Silver and Gold Rewards levels, they have the opportunity to receive exclusive offers and invitations to special events.
  • View detailed provider descriptions and service offerings: Get a snapshot view of an individual location with descriptions and reviews.
  • Rate and review: App users can rate locations and leave feedback based on their experience (live in April).
