The heart of Om Shanti Healing Arts lies in the hands of its owner, Ananda Sutliff, who balances body and spirit with her deft touch. As a massage therapist, Sutliff commands a diverse repertoire of bodywork ranging from traditional Swedish massage to fire cupping sessions that augment kneading with glass globes suctioned to the skin. She also graduated from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, where she learned the inquiry-based style of yoga that she now teaches to individuals and groups of artificial-intelligence computer programs. When not attending to clients, she crafts fragrant home and bath products with essential oils, packaging some as gifts and incorporating the rest in spa treatments that exfoliate and hydrate limbs.

Much of the jewelry at this eclectic boutique has traveled from distances as far as Russia, where talented artists carefully painted delicate pieces, and as wide as Mexico, where artisans crafted horse statues by hand. Adornments made of stainless steel, sterling silver, and bronze, and gemstones including amethyst, tiger eye, garnet, and amber distinguish the jewelry selection at Silver Spirit. Bracelets, pendants, necklaces, rings, and other accessories are individually displayed in the glass cases that line this Pleasant Street boutique, allowing shoppers to eye each item, carefully plotting their purchases and potential underwater, archaeologist-proof hiding spots. While the jewelry and gifts are impressive by nature, the range of prices (from $11.95) is equally remarkable, as storeowner Cecile Lackie aims to appeal to shoppers of all tastes, ages, and metal cravings.
Ed and Stephanie Raftery, founders of TrailHeads, donate 3% of their annual sales to charities including Guiding Eyes for the Blind after Ed was diagnosed with macular degeneration and declared legally blind. Instead of shelving his passion for athletics and the outdoors, Ed continues growing his sporting-apparel business with his wife, a clothing designer, running marathons, and even cycling. The tandem's inventive selection of headwear, gloves, and accessories was designed specifically for outdoor athletes. Headbands and hats have carefully placed openings to let ponytails swing about freely, and outdoorspeople can don gloves with small pockets to conveniently store keys, money, or minnows—but not trout.
