If you haven’t been to the sparkling multi-story “green” building yet, envision acupuncture treatments, sunless tanning, a hair salon and nonsurgical facials all under one roof for one-stop beauty shopping.
Arrive early and relax in the Penthouse Lounge and Terrace or enjoy a soak in the Skylight Hot Tub after a treatment. Boston’s most luxuriously indulgent spas was founded by President and CEO Joyce Hampers and has been a go-to beauty staple on Newbury Street for the past decade.
