As a native Alaskan, the owner of Embody understands the physical toll that the area’s harsh winters and surplus of outdoor activities can take on muscles. The massage center’s services take into account this Alaskan way of life, and its certified therapists cater to their neighbors' pain-relief needs with therapeutic bodywork that targets muscles ailing from cold weather or the heavy burden of layered sweaters. Candles, plants, and rock fountains surround the plush beds in the treatment rooms, where therapists ply muscles with soothing massages that ease medical injuries and quiet stress. Essential oils and footbaths can be added on to any treatment; if you crave further relaxation, take home some of Embody’s collection of locally made teas, lotions, and bath salts.

The beauty experts at Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio take a personal interest in their clients’ pores. They perform complimentary assessments of skin type before plucking the proper makeup from a varied inventory, ensuring foundations and shadows flatter complexions and compound eyes. Comprised of cosmetics and skincare from the Merle Norman line, which was born in Los Angeles in 1931, the beautifying powders and serums can be tested in-store before purchase. That means customers can sweep bronzing powder across cheekbones and seal in the sun-kissed hues with Expert Touch Finishing Spray before deciding if it really matches their favorite ski mask. In addition to the studio’s namesake line, staffers also stock professional OPI nail polish, perfumes, and accessories.

The two dentists at Mint Dental work to reduce the inevitable stress of dental care by staying open for extended and weekend hours and offering IV sedation to calm nerves. In treatment rooms, the team peers at x-rays of teeth, looking for hidden dental issues or evidence regarding lunches missing from the office fridge. Patrons mosey from the office, their teeth newly gleaming from cleanings or bleaching treatments.

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.?

Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
