An Aveda Concept Spa and Salon, Spa Epoché's savvy and experienced staff renders myriad services in a sleek and tranquil environment. During the 30-minute Swedish massage, therapists traverse dorsal landscapes with long, stimulating strokes, loosening muscles and hunting down stress splinter cells. After a consultation and a skin analysis, aestheticians customize visage-rejuvenating facials with Aveda's all-natural alternatives to harsh chemical products. Let locks down for the shampoo and style, kicking back in a stylist's chair while stylists craft coifs with the precision of a watchmaker shooting skeet with a laser gun. Pamper paws with a no-chip Shellac manicure, applied like a traditional polish by a nail technician then quickly cured under a special light, leaving the lacquer bright, dry, and shinier than a diamond-encrusted hand mirror.
Located inside the Renaissance Hotel, Spa Epoché's hardwood floors, clean lines, and hanging lamps contribute to its tranquil, Zen-esque ambiance. Upgrades are available on each service; clients can add 30 minutes to the massage or the facial, add a haircut to the shampoo and style, and add a classic pedicure to the Shellac manicure for $25 each.
Hardwood floors, soft lighting, floor-to-ceiling windows, and abstract floral paintings comprise Spa Epoche's 3,500-square-foot studio, ensconced in Renaissance Hotel's Patriot Place. Only those aged 17 and older can enter, and all cell phones must be turned off. Inside the quiet space, Aveda's flower- and plant-based products aid both stylists—as they trim tresses and perform conditioning treatments. Massage therapists work muscles free of tension during Swedish massages that use traditional long strokes with an oil application that relaxes the body, improves muscle tone, and stimulates the immune system. Utilizing SkinCeuticals products, skin experts condition or firm faces, smooth age lines, and clear acne with a series of peels. Firming and Reconditioning facials are customized to client's unique skin needs and cater to all skin types including dry, sensitive, congested, and oily.
