Photograph article dated March 10, 1961 partially reads, "A jury of eight men and four women is expected today to decide whether an Encino woman is guilty of practicing medicine without a license. The State board of Medical Examiners has contended that Anna Mazzarelli, 59, 16026 Ventura Blvd., a licensed cosmetologist, claims she can cure illness or disease by manipulating the feet and toes through a process called 'reflexology.' Mrs. Mazzarelli has taken lectures in 'reflexology,' a process teaching nerve endings of the body's various organs terminate in the feet. Attorney John T. LaFollette, Encino, counsel for Mrs. Mazzarelli, pointed out that since she is a licensed cosmetologist, she is entitled to give 'massages and other similar treatment.'"
