What You'll Get
Like cars, human beings require occasional corrective bodywork, custom finishing, and fresh coats of wax to avoid being towed away and crushed into a cube. Keep your chassis classy with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a petite retreat treatment package (a $165 value) at Spa Epoché, located in the Renaissance Boston Hotel & Spa at Patriot Place in Foxborough. With 10,000 square feet packed full of soothing treatment rooms and a staff composed of Aveda professionals, Spa Epoché helps stress-plagued patrons achieve a newfound level of balanced bliss. Check in at the decoratively tiled lobby and a staff member will escort you to your personal locker where you can safely store your belongings and hang a heart-framed picture of Scott Bakula. The petite retreat treatment includes a meatball-free, half-hour Swedish massage, which combines long, careful strokes and skin-soothing oils to improve muscle tone and stimulate the immune system to free-radical-fighting form. To supplement properly tenderized muscles, an Aveda signature elemental nature consultation for your face customizes a 30-minute facial to fit your specific skin needs and restores your face value to the original sticker price. A shampoo, expert style, and blowout with one of the licensed Aveda stylists completes your transformation from bedraggled to breathing a sigh of beautified relief.
Epoché’s spa services specialize in making bodies feel like newly constructed bliss temples, helping skin look its healthiest and bodies feel like bodies of younger humans. For serial overachievers, Epoché allows Groupon holders to upgrade their half-hour massage and facial to a full hour, and to add a haircut to the shampoo and style for an additional fee of $25 for each upgrade. Should guests choose to enlist in optional retail therapy, Epoché will gift an Aveda gift bag for purchases over $50, as well as a 15% off coupon good toward your next service.
Though people complain about scheduling conflicts at the spa, four Yelpers still enjoy Spa Epoché’s services and give it an average rating of 3.5 stars. TripAdvisors give the Renaissance Boston Hotel & Spa at Patriot Place an average of four owl eyes:
