At Marc Alan Day Spa, a doting cadre of beauticians, aestheticians, and massage therapists pamper patrons with a variety of rejuvenating salon and spa services. During a haircut and style, patrons partake in a consultation, where stylists consider hair type, face shape, and lifestyle. Expert hair tamers then revamp coifs into complementary fashions, washing, trimming, and sculpting locks into a bob, beehive, or bust of Aristotle.
The air is tinged with the smell and taste of salt. Stalactites of salt dangle from the ceiling, and the floor crunches as the group walks through inches of rock salt. After taking a seat, soft music plays and the lights dim while the group relaxes and breathes in the healing salt air. This routine plays out several times a day inside Galos Caves' artificial sea microclimate, which earned it a nod in Time magazine. Using 100% Black Sea salt, the cave's air is laden with the negative ions of salt, which are thought to treat respiratory diseases, digestive tract problems, and dermatological blemishes. From asthma to rheumatic disease, the salt can help the body alleviate the more troubling symptoms of myriad conditions, and the relaxed atmosphere helps remove stress. Kids are welcome in the serene environment, and the staff gives children toys such as shovels, Frisbees, rakes, and plastic french fries to play with in the crystals.

When you pass through the doors of Primal Oceans Salt Cave, its feels like you've been transported to another world. A cavern made out of pink Himalayan sea salt surrounds you, and soft salt sands shift under your toes. Stalactites and stalagmites reach into the center of the cave, and a sea of stars swims overhead. You sink into an antigravity chair for your 45-minute session, and the scent of pure Himalayan sea salt opens your lungs and allows you to breathe more deeply and relax in the meditative atmosphere. After departing the salt cave, you can recharge your body with spa services that include an ionic detox footbath, an aqua massage where you stay fully clothed and dry, and Aquascape, a water bed that mimics the feeling of floating in the ocean.
