This Week’s Featured Chamber Member
This week, we would like to highlight a new member of our Chamber whom we had the pleasure of interviewing recently. It is our pleasure to introduce, Body Elements, a wellness spa and gift shop located in South Parkersburg, WV. We spoke with Alisha Fordyce, owner, to get to know her business and share with fellow Chamber members. See below for her Q&A!
Tell us a little about Body Elements.
“Body Elements is a wellness spa that offers a variety of different options to fit your wellness needs. Our services include massage therapy, tanning, air-brush tanning, hair, and ionic detox. We also have an on-site gift shop that has a variety of natural-based items. We have sugar scrubs, organic lotions, handcrafted soaps, essential oils, tanning lotions, herbal tea, and bath bombs just to name a few of the items we sell in our Gift Shop.”
What got you interested in this field of work?
“I originally got interested in this field when I had a bad reaction to a common household cleaner. This led me on a journey to exploring the world of detox, investigating labels, and finding alternative therapies. It became my passion to provide products and services that are affordable and all-natural. Our goal at Body Elements is to focus on the mind, body, and soul when you are with us.”
Who is your ideal customer?
“Our ideal customer is someone who values self-care and alternative therapies.”
How long have you been in the Mid-Ohio Valley?
“We opened for business on February 24, 2014.”
What is a little known fact about your business?
“We make 85% of our products on-site that are sold in the gift shop. “
Is there any exciting news you would like to share with your fellow MOV Chamber members and community?
“Please join us for Small Business Saturday on November 28th from 12PM – 5PM for a special event. We will be giving away over $500 in door prizes, chair massages, and light refreshments.”
Why did you decide to get involved with the MOV Chamber?
“We have been open for several years and feel like we make a positive impact on the community. We thought the next step would be to join the MOV Chamber to network and extend our reach within the community.”
Thank you, Body Elements for your membership with us! We are looking forward to doing business with you and are glad to be partners!
