Wellness is viewed as a way of life including such holistic aspects as physical fitness, nutrition, refreshing mental activity and beauty care. The main focus is to create a healthy body, mind and soul. The present day youth go to spas for fitness, stress management, peace of mind, pampering and pleasure, health and wellness as spa is considered as a centre for healing and nourishing body, mind and spirit. The importance given to health and wellness is reflected by the fact that diet, weight loss and exercise programmes and equipment, fitness facilities, spas, nutritional supplements are now having a place in everyone’s life. This change in life style is driven not only by the extreme demands and long waits for treatment and the desire of working generation for a more active lifestyle after retirement, but also with the hope of being fit and well enough to participate in their chosen activities. In spite of the fact that wellness is an important matter of concern of the present generation, the absence of a properly designed spa and wellness centre in Manipal which has huge student population both domestic and international is quite surprising. Is it because the population of Manipal is not demanding for it. This study was taken up to understand the perception of people living in Manipal about health and wellness.
