Nail Candy.


Raw chocolate and organic nails. What do they have in common? Now you can indulge in both of life's best pick-me-ups at Tierra Mia Organic Spa in Rittenhouse. 

The new Chocolate Tasting Menu is a must. The $1 tasting includes 3 samples of carefully selected craft chocolate from different regions, including raw and vegan varieties. Add that on to your mani or pedi, and the most relaxing spa in Philadelphia (or anywhere, if you ask me) turns into paradise. Along with an always charming staff, organic services, and a soothing atmosphere, it's easy to see why this is one of my favorite escapes in the city.

To me, what makes a stand-out business concept is when the owners fully embrace it, and Justin and Karina are so genuinely behind their belief of the healthy salon experience. I see so many people abuse the word "organic" and "natural" that it is refreshing to see a couple that have the highest of standards, from the materials they use in the decor, to the products they offer, to the laundry detergent that they use. And of course, a strong knowledge of fine chocolate!

Even better news? I've been visiting Tierra Mia for years, pleading with them to expand, and they are! Soon, Tierra will have at least one more new location. If not a few...

Now get on over there and do what's best for your fingers, toes and tastebuds, and in case you're wondering, the Amazonia was just wonderful.
