    looking for a right expression

    Hi, I am looking for the English expression for an industry which is similar with sauna. The difference is that it funtions by electrifying something called Tourmaline, then the anion will be released to work on peple. What is it? I need your help. Thank you.

    Sounds like a form of treatment with crystals. I have never seen it given a particular name.

    Tourmaline is a highly electro-static mineral which is sometimes used in alternative therapies for nervous disorders.

    Thank you. What I meant is that I would like to know the name of the place which provides such treatment, which means that if i ever open such a business, what would this business be named?

    Thank you.

    Is it as effective as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)?

    Very much doubt it. I am a total cynic about "crystal healing".

    However, I have very pretty earrings made out of that crystal. They have value that way!

    I cannot figure out the relationship between Tourmaline and sauna industry. There are tons of therapies available in Asia.

    Probably you can say it is Magic Jade Therapy OR Energy Therapy.

    I think Victor is looking for the possible name of a place where such therapy is provided. Clinic is the most likely one that comes to mind, but it bears no relationship in sound or meaning to "sauna", which is of course a room in which hot steam is used as a cleansing medium.

    Re: looking for a right expression

    If patients see a clinic named XXXArt therapy or XXX music therapy, they already understood/can guess exactly what therapy they will receive in that clinic. What's the point to specify the clinic environment?

    Victor seems to think that there is a single word - but it is proving hard to identify it.
