Lush smells, comfy semi-dark rooms and a sense of self-indulgence make a spa treatment appealing. But here are three treatments that aim to do more than merely pamper. Hot oil and needles If acupuncture seems more doctor's office than salon, perhaps it might sound more appealing if combined with a hot oil treatment. That's what you get under the care of Elisa Angelone at the Exhale spa in Santa Monica's Fairmont Miramar Hotel. I have had acupuncture treatments for headaches and other issues in various settings, including sitting on a doctor's stool in a brightly lighted office.

Spa fans want more than sloughing off dead skin or soothing aching muscles from those pampering places of eucalyptus-scented bliss. And businesses are transforming into mind, body and soul temples of wellness to meet the demands of people increasingly eschewing traditional houses of worship and pursuing alternative paths to spiritual connection. "Spas can be inspirational places where I've seen many people have transformational experiences. With people not going as much to church, spas are a natural place to have some of these experiences," says Susie Ellis, who has worked 40 years in the spa industry and is president of SpaFinder Wellness, a marketing company.

I cannot begin to tell you what it means to me as a 32-year-old African American woman to learn that, for whatever reason, the movie industry believes the African American movie-going audience consists solely of young males (" 'Waiting' to Start a Trend?" Calendar, Jan. 9). This assumption blatantly ignores more than half of the African Americans who attend movies. Even more troubling is the suggestion that there are those who opine that the response to "Waiting to Exhale" is some kind of unique occurrence or "phenomenon."

The seated knee squeeze is a simple exercise you can do first thing in the morning to relieve a stiff back or after sitting for a long time. Being sedentary can cause your joints and muscles to stiffen, so use this move to loosen your back, helping it feel more pliable. * 1 Sit upright in a chair with one leg bent and your heel resting on the edge of the chair. Interlock both hands, and grasp your raised leg around the middle of your shin bone. Inhale and sit as tall as you can.

Regarding Kenneth Turan's discussion of possible Oscar nominees ("To the Moon, Oscar!," Jan. 7), I would hope that excellent "smaller" performances by less well-known actors might be considered, even when those performances cannot summon the heavy budgets for promotion. I think particularly of the fine, grounded, very human work of Loretta Devine in "Waiting to Exhale" and the splendid, live and very real work of Mike McGlone in "The Brothers McMullen." GORDON COHN Long Beach Turan omitted any mention of "Babe," which topped his own 10-best list.

The Dodgers were one desperate team Sunday in Baltimore. In the rotation, in the lineup, in those early standings and in spirit. Hours after learning Chad Billingsley's elbow had flared up again and the Dodgers had placed him on the disabled list, they snapped their six-game losing streak with a 7-4, come-from-behind victory over the Orioles. One little very-much-needed victory. It did not come easy. Stephen Fife was called up from triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday to make the emergency start for Billingsley and immediately gave up three runs in the first inning.

WATERTOWN, Mass. - A manhunt that locked down metropolitan Boston for 23 hours ended Friday night when police unleashed a barrage of gunfire and snatched the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings from his hiding place in a covered boat in a backyard. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was found huddled and covered in blood by officers who stormed the suburban neighborhood after receiving a tip from a homeowner. The suspect's brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, had died before dawn Friday in a fierce gun battle with police not far from the same section of Watertown.

LONDON -- After a chaotic and embarrassing start, the Olympic security operation wraps up this weekend without major incident or much complaint. It looks to be a face-saving ending for organizers, who were blasted in the months leading up to Games for a multitude of potential security lapses. The criticism reached its peak two weeks before the opening ceremony when the British firm picked to oversee security announced that it had not hired enough guards. The admission forced the British government to add 3,500 soldiers to the armed forces already scheduled for Olympic duty.

First-time Super Bowl champion Tom Coughlin says he reached out this summer to John Wooden and Dodgers Manager Joe Torre, seeking advice on how best to prepare a team to defend a title. . . . Torre, whose New York Yankees teams won three consecutive World Series championships and four in five years, says he told the New York Giants coach, "You basically have to get better to stay the same, but the whole mental thing is, when you win you have a tendency to exhale and say, 'Aw, we did it.' " . . . Dodgers fans have been waiting to exhale for 20 years.

The mood was exuberant at Jet Propulsion Laboratory Sunday night after scientists and engineers watched their one-ton rover execute a complex series of maneuvers and land as gracefully as an Olympic gymnast. "So that rocked. Seriously! Woo!" said Richard Cook, deputy project manager for the Mars Science Laboratory, as the punched upward with both fists, a sign of victory. Cook reminisced about how far they had come since the 1997 Pathfinder mission, which sent the first rover, Sojourner, to skitter around the Martian surface.

After the last horse crossed the finish line Wednesday during the final race of the final day of the Del Mar meeting, a sigh of relief could be felt from horsemen who have experienced roller-coaster-like highs and lows this summer. There were 12 catastrophic injuries on Del Mar's Polytrack during the 37-day meeting, eight coming during morning workouts. Thirteen horses had to be euthanized, up from eight last year and more than twice as many as 2007, when six died during the first year of the synthetic surface.
