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.

The technicians at Bloom Salon & Body Spa present clients with noninvasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Instead of liposuction, they melt away inches with LipoLaser treatments. Instead of face-lifts, they tighten the skin naturally by stimulating the muscles underneath with MicroCurrent treatments. Since these techniques keep the scalpel in the drawer, they spare clients the long recovery periods required after more taxing options, such as surgery or witchcraft.
In addition to their technological beauty techniques, the team also augments appearances and pampers patrons with facials and a full menu of hair services. Six types of massages scold away stress with relaxation tools such as hot stones and grapefruit foot scrubs.
With the canny eyes and encouragement of Excursions' friendly fashionistas, shoppers can stock wardrobes with timeless basics or flaunt trendy frocks, tops, and jewels. An inventory of A-list designers ably stitches hip, figure-flattering styles for glamorous dames, unlike U-list designers, who glue together outfits for Muppet understudies.

Shopkeeps steer browsers to items, from BCBG dresses ($138–$298) for summer-friendly staples to Trina Turk dresses ($198–$298) for special occasions such as ribbon-cutting ceremonies for lemonade stands. Making great gifts, eclectic accessories include a quirky Nic & Zoe owl necklace ($35) and a boho-chic XCVI scarf ($36).
Susan Rose Kesti doesn't simply use massage to soothe aches or help clients relax. Instead, she views each treatment as an opportunity to promote natural, holistic healing for the mind, body, and spirit. During her career, she's had the opportunity to collaborate with physicians and chiropractors, and now she welcomes clients to her practice at Bella Bodywork, offering massages that help alleviate pent-up tension while gentle music plays in the background.
Swedish techniques increase circulation and soothe aches near the surface, and deep-tissue pressure focuses on the knots caused by injury or chronic stress. Additionally, Susan can accentuate the therapeutic benefits of these massages by offering add-on treatments such as organic sugar and sea salt body scrubs or by incorporating aromatherapy oils in scents like tea tree and mint or lavender and cedar.
