Dr. Florence Akinwumiju, the health director at Amazing Natural Health & Wellness, has spent 20 years as a medical nurse and a doctor of natural health. That doesn't mean she has always been healthy herself, though?she struggled with high blood pressure for many years. Ultimately, she decided her Western medications were part of the problem, treating just her surface symptoms and creating myriad unwanted side effects. This prompted her to shift her treatment, as well as her practice, toward natural vitamins and supplements geared to balancing the body.
She never looked back. Today, she helps patients tackle symptoms from migraines to asthma with vitamins and supplements, often tailored to the specific patients via Zyto assessment. During the noninvasive assessment, which takes only five minutes, patients rest their hand in a hand cradle while a machine scans their physiques, then spits out supplement recommendations. However, other treatments approach holistic health from other angles. Ionic footbaths, for instance, draw toxins out through through the soles of the feet more effectively than suction-cup shoes, and colonics flush out toxins with up to eight gallons of purified water.

Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
At Unique Faces Make-Up Studio, founder Yolanda “China” Smith and her staff adhere to a simple motto: "It’s our job to make you look unique and it’s your job to be unique.” Unique is also a fitting word to describe this business, which refuses to limit itself to a single customer demographic. Proudly proclaiming her business "the home of the $20 makeover,” Smith also boasts a resumé that includes past work for noted photographers, recording artists such as Gorilla Zoe and Chingy, and high-profile companies including Elite Model Management. Whether her crew is providing on-location makeup for fashion shows or weddings or hosting Lil Diva spa parties in their pink-and-purple-walled studio, they ensure every face gets the celebrity treatment it deserves regardless of its budget or number of degrees from Kevin Bacon.
SVS Vision Center?s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 60 locations sprawled across 8 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center?s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
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.
