Boston Beauty And Spa Guide

There’s rarely a idle moment for the residents of Boston, where riverside trails beg to be cycled, cutting-edge museums demand to be explored, and exotic dishes at international restaurants are just waiting to be tasted. Constantly affronted with new sights, sounds, and tastes, even the most energetic Bostonian needs time to relax. Fortunately for them, Boston spas are some of the finest in the country.

Be sure to arrive early for your appointment at the Mandarin Oriental Spa, the only Forbes Five-star awarded spa in Massachusetts . You’ll want plenty of time for a relaxing steam in the quartz crystal steam room or a refreshing swim in the vitality pool. Afterwards, highly trained specialists will administer innovative treatments inspired by ancient Chinese medicine, such as a harmonizing Oriental meridian massage and a foot ritual designed to restore a natural state of equilibrium.

Clients can feel particularly good after a visit to G2O Spa—not only did they enjoy a replenishing acupuncture treatment, whirlpool soak, or brine inhalation therapy experience, but they supported a business committed to environmentally sustainable practices. The spa’s sleek and modern facility was made out of recycled materials and utilizes an innovative groundwater heating and cooling system to reduce its C02 emissions.

Though both spas are situated on Newberry Street, the cozy Bella Sante spa has a decidedly different feel than the chic and trendy G2O, with flickering candles, comfy armchairs, and sunlit private treatment cabins. While awaiting body treatments and mani-pedis, clients don plush robes and sip calming teas.

Over in Cambridge, the staff at Inman Oasis are experts when it comes to massages—from vigorous deep-tissue to relaxing shiatsu. After massage treatments, clients simmer in the churning waters of private or communal hot tubs modeled after traditional Japanese vessels.

At étant, the skilled specialists are as equally dedicated to inciting relaxation as they are to improving long-term health. They extend their expertise to a variety of holistic services, including a facial rejuvenation acupuncture treatment designed to boost metabolism and a re-texturizing mask that replenishes sun-damaged skin. 

Locals looking to get pampered with a Boston massage can choose from any of the numerous day spas in the area.

Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.

Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.

Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.

As a nurse working in intensive care, Antonette "Toni" Dardeno, an RN and certified medical laser safety officer who was a contributing author in CMLSOs' Best Practices in Medical Laser Safety, saw firsthand how advanced medical equipment could change lives. It wasn’t until her personal experience with a dermatologist, however, that she understood the effects lasers could have on the skin. Though this experience became the catalyst for her interest in skincare and medical-grade lasers, it was her passion to help others that led her to establish Laser Enhanced Therapies.

At this laser-centric med spa, Toni and medical adviser Dr. Elliot Lach treat patients with two types of advanced Candela lasers designed to effectively eliminate unwanted hair and leg veins and firm aging skin on a variety of epidermal types. A trained laser technician or nurse reaches for the GentleLase 755 system for pale complexions, while employing GentleYAG 1064 system for those with a darker skin tone. In addition to laser treatments, Toni and crew also clear complexions with facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, which they enhance with paraben-free MyChelle Dermaceuticals, IMAGE, and Aubrey Organics products.

The Boston Bodyworker has been treating pain and injuries in the Copley Square area for 15 years. Though the clinic's interior decor is warm and inviting, clients won’t find a robe or slippers waiting for them like at other massage centers. What they will find are exceptional clinical massages—ones that have caught the attention of CBS and the Improper Bostonian, who gave the center its Best Massage 2011 award. The massages are so effective because each of the more than a dozen therapists has passed an in-house training program and is required to stay up-to-date on current research.

Along with being members of the American Massage Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Drew and his team also volunteer their time and skills to such events and charities as the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s marathon. The Boston Bodyworker is a proud sponsor of the One Run for Boston, a 501c3 charity that raises money for the victims of the marathon bombings. In 2013, it helped raise over $91,000.00 for the One Fund.

Courtney and Corey Nappa complement each other’s skill sets well. Courtney has a wealth of business experience and a passion for beauty, and Corey has years under his belt as a personal trainer and fitness-center manager. They realized that they could combine their skills into an ideal health-club experience, and Ten X Club was born.

On the fitness end of the business, instructors hold group Pilates, yoga, and spin classes. Cardio and weight-lifting rooms feature equipment from manufacturers such as Nautilus and Precor. A kids’ playroom keeps tykes entertained while parents shed sweat. On the other end of the spectrum, the sleekly appointed salon features hair services, mani-pedis, and spray-tanning services in a quiet environment, the air perfumed with the scent of hair products. Here, too, members can send their kids to the playroom while they enjoy grownup relaxation time with beautifying services, adult conversation, and the freedom to eat animal crackers any way they choose.

The staff at Pigmenta Permanent Cosmetics believes that beauty should be effortless, which is why they've curated a selection of services designed to minimize time in front of the makeup mirror. Permanent makeup artist Julia enhances eyes and lips with hypoallergenic ion-oxide pigments custom-matched to the client’s skin-tone and cosmetic preference. Instead of relying on a machine or stencils, Julia performs the tattoo-like procedure by hand, allowing her to impart a soft, natural look and even mimic the look of individual eyebrow hairs. Meanwhile, lash specialists enhance flutterers with everything from semi-permanent extensions to lash dipping—a process that allows clients to ditch their mascara for up to six weeks. Pigmenta’s staff also invites customers to stop in for quick threading sessions, where sturdy lengths of thread allow aestheticians to swiftly remove excess hair from the face and brows or quickly sew it back on if the client changes their mind.

After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics—a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all five locations, Dan and Dave’s more than 35 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient’s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others’ hair.
