Halotherapy - the latest Spa trend.

No, nothing to do with being angelic! It is basically sitting in a salt room.
Wellness spas are thriving today, even in our era of modern medicine, often with the same old claims of balance and purity. Spas are a triumph of marketing, selling an eclectic mix of holistic nonsense to the worried well with disposable income.

I have to say the marketing is brilliant – spas have positioned themselves as a pleasant experience with vague health benefits and a symbol of beauty and status. I even know some very skeptical and scientific people who go in for the first and third features, while ignoring or downplaying the whole medical pseudoscience thing as just a necessary annoyance.
