It's a doctor's visit with a difference at the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine, where traditional Western medicine and Eastern techniques, such as massage and acupuncture, come together. Above, Dr. Jun Liang Yu, with Dr. Ka Kit Hui, massages a patient who has symptoms of chronic fatigue. Yu--who is both physician and massage therapist--says the method is not designed simply to soothe and relax but to treat ailments such as chronic pain by applying pressure to specific points.

OK, we know moms love the homemade stuff like plaster handprints and God's eyes, and breakfast in bed is well-intentioned, but what mom would really like is an hour or two at the spa. Really. And in L.A., it's so easy. Present mom with a rejuvenating spa treatment or enjoy a mother-daughter experience at one of L.A.'s soothing city retreats.

'The medium is the massage," quipped Marshall McLuhan, long before 24-7 cable, tweeting or iPhones. Cartoonists (whose own medium has changed little since cavemen drew on walls) are quick to exploit, extol or excoriate other media if the massage rubs us the wrong way. Bill Schorr's headline horseman broadcasted the Massachusetts election results the old-fashioned way. Mike Keefe's blustering, quaking radio ranter rushed to bad judgment. And Jeff Koterba's self-congratulatory corporate conspirators couldn't wait to disseminate free speech.

In his essay on Marshall McLuhan, Thomas Cahill states that "virtually everybody admits to not having finished any of his books. . . ." I certainly believe that Cahill is included.

Lynn Shelton specializes in the small-scale high concept. She has an eye for delicately observed moments and casual absurdities that spin around an obvious plot engine. Like her features "Humpday" and "Your Sister's Sister," her latest Seattle-set comic drama, "Touchy Feely," is a work that gestures toward depths without truly plumbing them. In its gentle way, it's also her broadest, most schematic film. As the story of friends, family and identity crisis meanders toward its low-key feel-good conclusion, exceptionally lovely, nuanced performances by Rosemarie DeWitt and Allison Janney are the chief draw.
Pedicures are simply good grooming, not extravagances. --Mom Wedlan Feet respond well to a massage because there are so many muscles which help withstand stress. --Rob Landel, assistant professor of clinical physical therapy, USC I chanced upon a top-notch salon in Pasadena. Relaxation began at the doorsill with classical music, followed by Victorian furnishings, flowers, chandeliers, and a ceiling covered stratus-fashion with material. Gayana, the owner, said: "My clients come in very stressed.
