Have health spa's gone 'biodynamic'?
Want to stay in touch with your 1-900-PSYCHIC, but are afraid the mud bath treatment will foul your cell phone?
No need to worry – just relax, and have it all done at the same time!

What’s great about this is that the spa’s are really looking for marketing…
And that’s what the authors point out that –
It's also another way for spas to make money and attract guests in a competitive market. The International Spa Association, the biggest spa industry group, says that between 1995 and 2004, the number of U.S. spas more than quadrupled, to 12,100. But the most recent figure for the number of visits to spas, 136 million, is actually down slightly from 2001.
Also of interest is the statement from one of the practitioners that they don’t really give a ‘reading’, but rather listen to the client, and then dispense advice about how to resolve their issues.
(It'd be a better deal if they had "Oenophile massages" where you could couple aromatherapy of wine aromas wafting through the studio, a good deep shoulder, neck & back rub, while you sip relaxingly on a glass of your favorite wine...that'd be worth something! And all your troubles would "magically" disappear...)
Just like Wineries looking to differentiate themselves in a global sea of wine, by using the ‘biodynamic’ descriptor for their vineyard practices & wines. And as for those who've set themselves up as providers of biodynamic goods and accredation - Good for you! If there are people dumb enough to think it works or even that they need you, then they deserve to be fleeced! (I think I'll make one more post on biodynamics after I read Joly's book Wine: from sky to earth, when I can give a book review. It should be like shooting fish in a barrel, if it's anything as disjointed as his website for Coulee de Serrant.)
Anyway – let me save you some dough – open a nice bottle of wine & use the virtual voodoo doll on the following link to solve all your problems! [instant voodoo]
OR better yet! Use the Chocolate Voodoo Doll! Think of how much better you’ll feel after you’ve bitten the head off your problems! Maybe it’ll go well with some fava beans and a nice Chianti…?
…it’s a much better gamble than a “Soul Regression Tour”. Probably alot cheaper, too.
Again people, it's all about marketing. Just trying to get market share.
