(CNN) — San Diego is a veritable repository of the unique, the one-off and the rare.
This southern California city is home to the world’s largest lemon (the 10-foot-long fiberglass behemoth sits in Lemon Grove, a small town in metro San Diego) and also boasts the world’s largest collection of memorabilia from the late Dr. Seuss, who was a longtime resident of the city’s La Jolla community. And two products that couldn’t be more different, the ubiquitous WD-40 lubricant and Dr. Bronner’s soaps, both have roots here.

A civic organist who gives free weekly outdoor concerts
A public uproar broke out in 2011 when local leaders threatened to cut the city’s staff organist, a position that’s been on the payroll for nearly a century. Every Sunday afternoon since the organ was donated by sugar heirs John and Adolph Spreckels in 1914, a staff organist has stepped up to the keys of a 50-ton pipe organ at a pavilion in Balboa Park.

As a massage therapist for over 20 years I always love hearing the spa trends for the year. I am hopeful that more people will learn the health benefits of massage and not see it as a luxury item. All people from all walks of life benefit from massage.
Let’s explore some of the different spa trends for 2012:
1. Feet Focus – Reflexology – Foot Massage
On the rise are multi-treatments focused on the feet. Specific work on the foot due to high-heel pain.
Amusement Park Spas, Water Park Spas, Tropical Garden Spas and spas with a full range of Classical music and Jazz concerts. Many of the spa-parks are geared towards children and their parents. These are some of the spa experiences trending for 2012.
