WITH work, freeway traffic and the tensions of everyday life, it's been a hard day. It's time to step into a world of pure, luxurious pampering -- a place where worries can be kneaded, scrubbed and rubbed away. Here, feet are lavishly massaged, legs are soaked, bodies are wrapped and hands are dipped in paraffin. Gentle, soothing music plays. The scent of ancient oils and herbs cleanses the air. It's a place of calm and serenity. It's ... your living room?

In each foot there are more than 7,000 nerve endings called reflexes, which correspond to systems in the body.

The hometown streetscape has appeared in scores of movies and commercials for Buick and McDonald's. Those who grew up in smallish towns in the mid-20th century will likely recognize it all: brick storefronts, antiques shops, park benches, the dignified bank with its ornate wood ceiling.

The sweet and soothing fragrance of a scented candle. The oh-so-calming aroma of ginseng-honey tea. A lavender spiced eye pillow. All this is at your beck and call while you wait with your tootsies in an electric foot massager, sip bottled water and zone out watching Zen-like ethereal images of rain droplets on DVD monitors.
