Personal Therapy Sensory Devices Americans Get Their Electronic Om On

Stress is the #1 health concern for Americans, and women especially say that stress has an impact on their lives. As consumers look for ways to relax and rejuvenate, they are increasingly turning to personal therapy sensory devices for affordable stress relief within the comforts of home. This market covers electronic, non-prescription, personal use devices that stimulate the senses and offer therapeutic, as well as emotional benefits; for example, air quality, aromatherapy, heat therapy, light and color therapy, sound therapy and massage therapy devices (excluding vibrators intended for sexual use). Packaged Facts conservatively estimates that U.S. retail sales of personal therapy sensory devices topped $1 billion in 2006, a four percent gain over 2005.

More Americans are jumping into the driver's seat when it comes to their health for a number of reasons: Aging Baby Boomers are trying to stay active, the cost of conventional health care is skyrocketing, acceptance of complementary and alternative medicines is growing and health-related information is increasingly accessible via the Internet. Personal therapy sensory devices dovetail with these needs by offering a relatively affordable and convenient remedy for the savvy consumer. As retailers introduce pricier quasi-medical products to meet growing consumer interest in self-administered treatment, along with more upscale products for consumers who want to bring the spa experience home, Packaged Facts expects the market for personal therapy sensory devices to grow to $1.2 billion by 2011.
