The focus on wellness has become more important than ever in the past 18 months. From seeking out new fitness routines to do at home to paying more attention to our mental and physical health throughout the year, and even trying out new wellness practices such as incorporating CBD products into our daily life and trying out new forms of movement, Hong Kong's thriving health and wellness industry is not slowing down anytime soon.
Ahead of the launch of the 2021 Gen.T list, we're highlighting six Hong Kong-based honourees from previous years who are taking the city's health and wellness scene by storm. From modernising the image of traditional Chinese medicine to turning online group fitness classes into games, and providing Covid-19 testing across the world, here are the leading wellness professionals to know about in Hong Kong.
1. Candice Chan
Co-founder and managing director of LifeHub, Candice Chan has been in the wellness industry for over ten years in Hong Kong and in the US. A goal-getter with a list of wellness certifications to show her passion––including a bachelor’s degree in nutrition science as well as a yoga certification––Chan opened LifeHub’s flagship centre in Hong Kong in 2019 to bring science-backed health experiences to the city.
The to-go spot for all things related to alternative wellness, LifeHub’s IV drips, oxygen therapy and ear seeding treatments are now the talk of the town, attracting athletes who are looking for sports recovery treatments as well as in-the-know wellness enthusiasts.
With plans to expand to Mainland China in the upcoming years, remember to book in for an IV drip session when their Shanghai branch opens.
