2017 Winner: Balans Organic Spa


Leave it to the Swedes. Boston’s only 100 percent organic spa gets it right with body treatments that feed your skin plant-based products by Swedish skin care guru Maria Åkerberg. The wraps and remedies—complete with full-body brushing, exfoliation and massage—run the gamut from smoothing papaya to body-slimming and detoxifying algae and even anti-aging dark chocolate (capped off with an edible treat). Put off your return to the real world with the Peaceful Solitude add-on, a 10-minute meditation break on a heated table.
