Di Zhang, 43, will also pay $325,000 as part of a settlement of a federal civil forfeiture case over property connected to her alleged prostitution and human-trafficking activities, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Zhang still faces criminal charges in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

Most people believe a vigorous rubdown will make them more fit. While it is true that getting a massage will not harm you and can make you feel wonderful, the only way a massage can make you fit is to have it done while you're exercising.Fitness refers to the strength of your heart. Getting a massage will not make your heart stronger. To become fit, you need to exercise actively enough to significantly increase the circulation of blood through your body. A massage can increase the circulation of blood to your skin enough to make it turn red, but it won't increase the flow of blood to your heart enough to make you fit.Getting a massage will not help you lose weight, either.

Six months ago, the staff of Carroll Hospice wasn't even thinking about using music, aroma or color as therapy for the terminally ill patients they serve.Plans for alternative therapies to help dying people feel more comfortable and relaxed are among the changes sparked by the federal government's approval of Carroll Hospice for Medicare reimbursement in September 1992.Eligibility for reimbursement of $92 a day per patient from Medicare required the hospice, which had relied primarily on volunteers, to increase its professional staff.

There was a rather curious brochure in my mail at the Howard County bureau of The Sun last week. It touted the benefits of something called "self-care massage," including quick relief from headaches, back pain, muscle aches and numerous other mental and physical problems.After a little research -- actually just a couple of telephone calls -- I discovered the essence of self-care massage.According to a pamphlet offered by course instructor Dr. Xun Wang, self-care massage is a technique using your own hands and fingers to press, knead, rub, and otherwise manipulate key acupuncture points to stimulate the ability of the body to relieve or cure its common ailments.

Handlers used special massage techniques to soothe Goldencents' muscular frame and sudsy sponges to stimulate the shine and bloom on the Preakness competitor's chocolate-colored coat - while a sizable entourage seemed transfixed. Outside the Pimlico stables, a green oasis tucked inside urban Northwest Baltimore, a crowd had gathered around Goldencents. Photographers took pictures. A cluster of men, women and children from a sunrise tour stopped to stare. Security guards looked on. The list of helpers, assistants and advisers for Goldencents and the other Preakness all-stars is longer than Stacy Keibler's prep team on Oscar night - grooms, exercise riders, hot walkers, trainers, jockeys, veterinarians, stall muckers, chiropractors, ultrasound technicians and nutritionists.

The ad that led to the arrest of a Towson massage parlor owner this month was typical for such businesses, boasting as it did of the availability of "new young girls. " "You have to ask: If they constantly have new girls, where are the other girls going?" Melissa Snow asked. It was a rhetorical question, because as someone who works to stop sex trafficking, Snow has a pretty good idea where they go — to yet another massage parlor that similarly is offering more than rub-downs.

Call a local hospital and ask about "rolfing," and chances are no one will know what you're talking about.But in spas and holistic health clinics across the country, the deep-massage therapy, trendy in the 1960s, is enjoying a resurgence.At the Center for Effective Therapies in Crofton recently, Rhonda Teitelbaum, a 40-year-old nurse, lay on a medical table as veteran rolfer Bren Jacobson pressed here and there with his thumb and elbow on muscles he said needed to be realigned.At times, Mrs. Teitelbaum said she felt queasy from the intense pressure.

When did the holidays become an exercise in anxiety, tension mounting with each fa, la and la? Shopping stress. Baking stress. Light-stringing stress. Relatives. And that "Are you ready for Christmas?" thing. Hardly helping. But the year is winding down - shouldn't we take a cue? To that end, it seemed a good, scented rubdown couldn't hurt. I took on the not particularly arduous task of searching area spas for a moment or two of Zen, to see if a massage, scrub or perhaps a paraffin pedicure could straighten the star atop the tree and help the Hanukkah oil burn an extra night.
