When co-owners April Lyn Graffeo and Jose Batistine first conceptualized their salon, they envisioned a stylish location employing innovative products and cutting-edge techniques. More than a decade later, Indra Salon and City Spa reflects their vision in many ways. Boston magazine applauded the salon's ambiance, noting "the Indra newcomer may fear she’s crashing a too-hip party," and happily chattering aestheticians performing a range of services orbit around chic design features that include a stage, central runway, and a statue of the inventor of hair. Tresses and muscles alike shed tangles in Brazilian Blowouts and nine massage modalities, all beneath shelves groaning under an armory of elixirs from Aveda, Goldwell, and L'Oreal.
The Aveda concept salon nurtures expertise with a sizeable stylist training program, in which students receive on-the-job training under highly accomplished mentors. The staff's enthusiasm has garnered the salon mentions from a wide range of publications and one town crier impersonating a magazine. happily chattering aestheticians performing a range of services orbit around chic design features that include a stage, central runway, and a statue of the inventor of hair.

Dr. Ryan Hewitt is an energetic guy. Apart from running Merrimack Valley Wellness Center, he is a sought after speaker who also travels the country giving lectures on health and nutrition. Dr. Hewitt consistently challenges himself at CrossFit competitions. He combines the power of chiropractic with his love for functional fitness with many of his patients by helping athletes of all levels reach peak performance both inside and outside the gym. His other passion is helping families get and stay well at every age. Dr. Hewitt teaches that healthy living is ageless.
Dr. Hewitt believes patients can live rich, pain-free lives, and that they don't need drugs or surgery to do it. To achieve this goal, he performs corrective care chiropractic services to the spine, which helps free up pinched nerves that can lead to a host of health issues, including sore backs, headaches, and allergies and restore optimal function to the body.
For two decades, the staff at Cari Skin Care Centre has pulled their aesthetic and therapeutic treatments straight from the annals of European spa tradition; they cleanse and exfoliate the pores of men and women with the popular European facial, remove unwanted hair using a European waxing technique, and pair exfoliating coffee body scrubs with baguettes. Products from G.M. Collin infuse skin with hydration, and the staff tailors treatments to treat imperfections including redness and the telltale signs of aging.
No matter how deeply Nicole and David DeRosa dive into the world of beauty, they always look to one thing for inspiration: family. Their spa's name itself is a combination of Nicole's and her sister Jolene's—but that doesn't mean the DeRosas define family by blood alone. Nearly 70 stylists and aestheticians fit under that umbrella term, giving spa nijoli & salon a homey feel while drawing upon a diverse array of talents rather than just one uncle who claims he can fix a hairdryer. And the summation of such experience is a well-rounded spa that Boston Magazine crowned Best of Boston in 2011 and 2012.
The family feeling is infectious. Guests wandering into spa nijoli & salon sink into the warmth of autumnal tones and antique furniture that play on their nostalgia while massage therapists oust stress and skin technicians return a youthful glow to their face. To keep spa escapes from being dominated by children running around everywhere, spa nijoli & salon offers a daycare service through the neighboring Latitude Sports Club.
