LOS ANGELES - We love to look good and feel good in L.A., so Eye on L.A. found some great foods, relaxing services, and a few life-changing breakthroughs to help kick start your quest to wellness inside and out.

BOL Meditation & Sound Bath, Los Angeles
Looking and feeling good starts from the inside. BOL Meditation welcomes you to a sanctuary designed to take you to an emotionally happy place. Some people think they can't meditate, but BOL Meditation challenges them to consider meditation a process and not a one-time endeavor. BOL has many different kinds of meditation and one of our favorites is the sound bath that helps you get the release that meditation brings through sound waves. https://believeorleave.com/ (WATCH VIDEO ABOVE)

Crumbs & Whiskers, Los Angeles
There are health benefits to owning a cat. Having a feline at home can reduce stress and anxiety, decrease risk of stroke, lower blood pressure, and have a calming effect, as well as boost your immunity -- all great for feeling good. We found a place where you can enjoy coffee or tea and a snack while petting kitty cats. If you fall in love with one, you can adopt! That's it. It's all about cats at Crumbs & Whiskers on Melrose, where they take cats from shelters that were set to be euthanized and find them a forever home. https://crumbsandwhiskers.com/

Autism Typing Therapy
It's estimated that 1 in 68 children in the U.S. has an autism spectrum disorder, and R.E.A.C.H. is trying to empower their patients through augmented communication therapy, meaning the use of technology to help them communicate. Augmented communication therapy can offer solutions and open new worlds for patients and their families, and changing their lives. http://reach.services/
