AVEDA Mission Statement

Our mission at AVEDA is to care for the world we live in from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At AVEDA, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty but around the world.

History of Body Matters Day Spa

Body Matters, an AVEDA Concept Day Spa and Retail Center, is located in Middletown Rhode Island, just outside of historic Newport. We have operated in the same location since 1995, and have expanded several times bringing our current space to 2,400 square feet which includes 6 treatment rooms, a private Swiss shower, & a guest relaxation waiting room. 

Body Matters Day Spa began as a skin care center, but quickly expanded our spa focus to include hair, nail and massage services. We currently offer a complete menu of services including facials, cosmetics, hair services, natural & gel nail care manicures and pedicures, massage, wellness treatments, & body treatments. Body Matters is an escape from the stresses of life; it is a source of nurturing services with caring people in a quiet environment.

In May 2008, we renovated our 500 square foot Retail and Reception Center where we carry the full line of AVEDA skin, body, and hair products. This allowed us to enhance the product displays and to eliminate excessive noise from the treatment area in order to provide our guests with a more relaxing spa experience.
