"Spa Musicians" Seek Respect

There's an interesting article in the Los Angeles Time about how spa-music makers struggle for legitimacy. Partly a profile of record label Gemini Sun, the piece takes a look at the role of spa music, which taps into New Age, Celtic, world, ambient, Native American and other music.

Intended to straddle the conscious and unconscious, spa music aims to provide a kind of white noise for the spa experience -- to provide a soundtrack for the self-repair and -healing that spas can bring. Made me wonder what music might aid self-development.

Post your recommendations here.
