While her day job is running the incredible Santa Barbara non-profit, AHA, Jennifer Freed, Ph.D is an incredible astrologer, particularly because she pairs her understanding of the stars with her background as a therapist. A reading with Freed isn't simply about destiny, it's about what the application of that destiny might look and feel like, and how to step into it. As Freed explains at the opening of every reading, astrology isn't about what must happen, it's about what is possible for you.

These subterranean caves are lined in Himalayan salt, which, according to Salt's website, contain the 94 "natural minerals and trace elements that are found in the human body." More impressively, the salt comes from "the Himalayan Mountain foothills located in the Khewra Salt Range in the Punjab Province of central Pakistan," which Alexander the Great reportedly discovered in 320BC. All that fun stuff aside, a 45-minute session sounds pretty great: You relax in a zero gravity chair while they play music and you breathe in mineral-rich air. They also offer more traditional treatments, like scrubs and massages. We've heard it's all good.
