A Winter Retreat at Balans Organic Spa


I love getting massages. It’s probably one of my favorite indulgent activities. It can be tricky to find the time and money to set aside. You want to be sure that the experience is worth the effort — but when it’s good, it’s so good!

Just before the holidays, Laura and I spent an afternoon at Newbury Street’s Balans Organic Spa. Balans is Boston’s first and only 100% organic spa. They offers facials, body treatments, wraps, flotation therapy, makeup application, and more.


Laura and I were immediately wowed by the beautiful and inviting space — white walls, tall ceilings, and friendliest staff. It was easy to let our shoulders relax and mind unwind into a calm state. We both had a blissful 60-minute massage that felt equal parts relaxing, therapeutic, and just as good for the soul as it was for the body. Post-massage, we were treated to a delicious mini smoothie, spa water, and a Taza chocolate – yum. As the cold beings to set in, I’m looking forward to planning a return visit to Balans soon. It was a definite splurge, but one that my body is still thanking me for.
