The diverse team of practitioners at Eternal Balance helps to tune out the chatter of the outside world and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit with reiki, massage, and private yoga services. The intimate healing studio, tucked away in the Cummings Center, contains a private massage treatment room where the therapist tenderizes sore muscles and unties braided tendons with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques.
A nearby classroom hosts groups of students during life-enhancing workshops, such as The Art of Natural Breathing. The studio's owner, Olga, a trained reiki practitioner and yoga instructor, concludes each session with an improvised haiku to brighten each client’s aura.
The registered electrologists and licensed aestheticians at New England Electrology & Skin Care Center beautify their clients? bodies by permanently ceasing hair growth with electrolysis or temporarily removing hair with waxing. Also specializing in skincare, their facials cleanse and balance complexions. Their chemical peels and microdermabrasions rid facades of the topmost layer of skin to reveal the soft complexion awaiting below, resulting in a more youthful look.
Look Your Best's age-vanquishing team of board-certified physicians and nurses aim to whittle down wrinkles with FDA-approved Botox injections. A physician or nurse begins by examining facial fields to suss out each crease and determine a plan of attack. In a brief 30- to 45-minute session, the smoothing serum is injected directly into the facial muscles that are responsible for frown lines, laugh lines, and pug-impersonation lines, preventing their contraction. Newly liberated lines soften over the following three–five days, leaving a smoother appearance for up to four months.
An airbrush-tan appointment at Perfect Touch begins with a ritual color selection, when you will be able to choose your desired shade of gold, bronze, or zirconium. Next, clients are escorted into the spray chamber, a tent that tanners can enter nude or clothed in the bikini or bloomers of their choice. An airbrush-wielding technician then evenly glazes the dermis with a cool mist of dye, and in less than 10 minutes the ghostly emerge embronzened. Perfect Touch's dye is quick drying (so there is no need to pat dry, wear dark clothing, or wrap oneself in a rain-shielding armor of cellophane post misting) and contains a high ratio of brown to red tones to prevent orangeing and preserve an authentically human glow.

Tattoos start at $80, and prices vary based on the size, complexity, and placement of the body art.
Beverly Day Spa might seem like a typical nail spa, albeit a pretty one with wood manicure stations, calming green tones, and a crystal chandelier,?but the little touches it employs makes it stand out. Tools are disposable when possible or are sterilized with the spa's autoclave sterilization system, a system typically used by dentists and doctors. Gel-drying lamps rely on LED, not UV, light, and products used are from the Seacret line, which pampers skin with minerals from the Dead Sea. And technicians are perfectly adept at creating everything from stiletto nails to nail art featuring ombre glitter or the entire Declaration of Independence.
Further back in the space,?the nail spa gives way to private treatment rooms where aestheticians administer Seacret facials, remove unwanted body hair, and individually attach eyelash extensions to natural lashes.
