ABEO MEDSPA lives up to its name—which means "to be changed" in Latin—by transforming bodies with advanced laser and skincare services. Seven days a week, techs erase unwanted hair with an Alma Harmony Elite laser, clear complexions with a combination of infrared, IPL, and radio-frequency technologies, and smooth away fine lines with four types of injectable solutions, including Botox. Aestheticians also handle more traditional spa treatments, from diamond-tip microdermabrasion sessions to customized chemical peels.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
Meridians' staff instills wellness in both the body and mind with a full menu of hair services, massages, and holistic treatments. Skilled stylists use ammonia-free dyes and formaldehyde-free keratin solutions to style hair into streaks of smooth, silky hues. Inside sunny rooms, therapists uncork tension with skin-salvaging facials and massages that include private consultations before and after treatment. Meridians' therapy packages incorporate add-ons, such as sea salt and mud to therapeutic-exfoliation treatments, cleansing the skin of dead cells without the 1,000-page contracts involved in renting a bulldozer.
At The Green Tea Spa, clients are paired with licensed massage therapists who specialize in specific massage modalities and customize treatments to assuage individual aches and pains. Once clients ease between warm blankets and crisp sheets atop a heated massage table, the massage therapist sets to work to relieve lower-back irritation, shoulder pain, and chronic ice-cream headaches. The therapist digs into tense musculature with hypoallergenic lotions and creams, frequently checking in with guests to ensure their utmost comfort throughout the experience.
Heads Up Hair Salon's stylists finesse frazzled locks with fashionable cuts and products from brands including Redken, Chi, and Onesta. A shampoo and scalp massage set the stage for the talented trimmers' handiwork and release genie apprentices. Then wig wizards set to snipping, informed by a close consultation with clients and any photos of celebrities or ancestors they bring in. Foil highlights or lowlights precisely illumine or shade strands with hues ranging from subtle to dramatic, or opt for all-over color to give every thread equal attention. In about two hours, the friendly Heads Up staff will send heads on their way with a blow-dry and a promise to write.
As an LPG-certified Endermologie technician who has it out for patches of cellulite and fat, Jennifer McGilvray decided to found Perpetual Motion Body Improvement Center. She drew on her background in fitness and nutrition to inform which high-tech services would help achieve her mission.

The Republic of Wellness’s massage therapists come from Brazil, Belarus, and across New England, but they're all united by a single philosophy: the human body can heal itself. In helping it regain its natural balance, they take inspiration from ancient traditions from around the globe, including acupuncture, yoga, Swedish massage, and reflexology, a style that, much like four-limbed applause, places pressure on the extremities. The Quincy studio immediately muffles the worries of the outside world with a waiting room lined with well-loved Oriental rugs, overstuffed chairs, and amber-shaded lamps.
