Welcome to Philadelphia: Chestnut Hill

The greater Philadelphia area has been an important meeting ground in our country’s history since the days of the Liberty Bell, and is no less so today. Teeming with diversity and multicultural heritage from downtown to the suburbs, there are many neighborhoods, many points of view and many lessons to be shared among us all. We hope that our series of spotlights featuring events and personalities in all corners of our great metropolis will encourage residents to think outside the box and stray from their commute to explore their own city with a new perspective.

Chestnut Hill is one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Its small-town charm, mixed with a booming downtown area, not to mention incredible architecture, make it a great place to live and visit. Plus, the wellness community of Chestnut Hill is constantly growing, with a multitude of outlets to begin or continue a healthy lifestyle and routine. Here are a few of our favorite wellness-promoting spots to check out in the area.

Green Soul

The easiest way to begin a wellness regimen is to start with what we eat, and that’s where Green Soul can help. Their mission is to bring customers the best of both worlds: menu items that fill both the comfort food and real food categories. This hidden gem is located conveniently inside the Chestnut Hotel, so you can grab some healthy grub on the way in and out.

Remedy Spa & Wellness

Another way to really kick our wellness routine into shape is by giving our body a reboot. At Remedy Spa & Wellness, there are plenty of options. Whether looking for a massage, skin care or yoga and meditation classes, their holistic approach supplies the the mind-body reset we’ve been looking for.

Weavers Way Co-Op

To get all of our local products from one place, check out Weavers Way Co-Op. Their selection of local, organic products will provide a kitchen chock full of healthy ingredients. Load up on dairy products and meats from nearby farms or stock up on grains and nuts in bulk. They also have delicious prepared foods, along with salad and hot bars, so can grab something to go any time.

These great spots just skim the surface of all that Chestnut Hill has to offer in their wellness community. Be sure to check them out on your next visit.
