AlexisRose Lash & Beauty Suite is staffed by licensed master aestheticians who hold certifications from Novalash and Soft Tap permanent makeup. They offer synthetic, mink, or faux-mink lash extensions that come in a variety of colors and thicknesses, and each set of extensions is completely customized to give clients a look that gels with their facial features and desire to hail taxis with their eyes. The eyes aren’t the only focal point here though; the staff also offers microdermabrasion, ultrasonic facials, and other skin care treatments that remove impurities for a brighter and smoother complexion.

After years of blending her own hypoallergenic soaps to accommodate the needs of her daughter's sensitive skin, Pamela Carousso reserved space at her first farmer's market, attracting an immediate and dedicated fan base. Now, more than 15 years later, she still crafts her own handmade soaps and bath products in small batches. After expanding with the help of business partner Steve Carousso, the company now offers natural products such as talc-free mineral eye shadows, as well as stationery and accessories.
A variety of classes are offered at the shop six days a week and two times per day. Students can concoct their own lathering agents, stirring cauldrons of molten fixings and bubbling essential oils over crackling electric fires. Carousso spins thorough instructions and covers safety procedures that help guests avoid being bitten by a Bunsen burner.
The certified practitioners at New England Muscular Therapy master a range of therapeutic treatments to extricate clients from the burden of painful musculoskeletal conditions. Clients release sighs of relief as massage therapists release taut muscles with fingers made nimble from hours of practice and marathon rounds of cat?s cradle.

Customized treatments draw together the clinic?s disciplines to tailor a variety of therapies centered on personal wellness goals and promoting relaxation.
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.

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.
