Founded by a registered nurse concerned about the chemicals found in conventional spa products, Eden Organics' award-winning spa offers services that bathe patrons in an expansive selection of organic, vegan, and gluten-free products. The oxygen facial revives skin by spraying complexions with hyperbaric oxygen, and the flower power peel which targets hyperpigmentation, age spots, and acne scarring. During the back facial, an aesthetician smoothens the dorsal plains with steam and exfoliation before extracting deposits of sebum and ingrown marionette strings. Therapeutic massages set clients atop thickly blanketed beds. All the while, dexterous hands glide over muscles with organic mineral oils, delivering fluid strokes to extract tension and melt muscles into sublime submission. High-quality waxes, exfoliating lip treatments, and fragrant scalp massages also help guests to internalize the spa's soothing atmosphere and its abundant flowers blushing over hardwood floors.

Since the 1950s, local politicians, athletes, entertainers, and powerful wizards have frequented their store, finding wares from brands such as Alden, Santoni, Cole Haan, and Allen Edmonds. Sherman Brothers Shoes’s staff measures feet by hand using an old-fashioned fitting stool, matching customers with exotic, dress, casual, and work shoes, among other types.
