It sounds a tad new age-y to the uninitiated, sure, but it’s worth taking the 45-minute drive to Yucca Valley for a sound bath (some refer to them as sonic healing sessions) inside the Integration chamber. The hour-long experience consists of listening to a combination of live crystal bowl playing and pre-recorded music, which when combined with the chamber’s extra-strong energy levels, results in intense levels of relaxation. According to Integration’s creator, George Van Tassel, the all-wood structure was built on a geomagnetic vortex with guidance from Nikola Tesla’s writings and, umm, extraterrestrials. Though it sounds unlikely, there’s something magical about the place. Call ahead to reserve.
