Provider of wellness business management software Mindbody recently launched Mindbody Connect, a new mobile app that grants public access to the world’s largest and fastest growing wellness network, according to the company. The mobile app simplifies personal wellness management by connecting consumers with services in their geographical areas and streamlining the entire transactional experience, from booking the service to walking through the door. Consumers can now discover, book, and pay for all their health, fitness, and beauty activities through one unique login.
 
Mindbody’s wellness network comprises over 500,000 health, fitness, and beauty practitioners that span 90 countries. The network’s growth is only accelerating, with more than a thousand new business locations signing on each month to gain access to its web and mobile software. By linking the public to this global wellness network, and by enabling effortless transactions between the consumer and the wellness provider, Mindbody Connect aims to improve the ease of adoption and integration of wellness services into mainstream society.
 
In addition to booking, payment, and check-in, Mindbody Connect includes a “Discover” button, which populates thousands of businesses in the user’s geographical area, bringing new awareness to hidden, neighborhood gems. From acupuncture and yoga to massage therapy and hair styling, the app opens a door into the world’s wellness treasure chest, personalizing the consumer experience in the process. In addition to booking, users can track favorite classes, teachers, stylists and therapists as well as post and share reviews of the same.
