Is the wellness industry racist?
Back to question

Tech makes the wellness industry accessible to everyone

Free apps and websites make almost all wellness practices widely accessible.


Previously expensive and attainable practices, such as yoga and mindfulness, are now available free of cost via apps and websites.

The Argument

People can access wellness resources and materials wherever and whenever they so desire. Wellness experts have created free platforms, which makes the industry benefits extremely accessible.

Counter arguments

Technology can't account for skincare, a key facet of the industry. Also, apps only account for a small part of wellness and can't solve real-world exclusion.



Technology and innovation are beneficial for society. Wellness can be accessed via apps and internet.


Tech is inherently non-biased and user-run

Rejecting the premises

Tech is inherently neoliberal and many cannot afford it. Therefore, the "accessibility" argument is a myth.
