Tewksbury’s Balance Spa is a seemingly unlikely place to pamper yourself. Located inside a former post office, its exterior is deceiving, making it a bit of a hidden gem. Those who are in the know, however, will describe its luxurious, well-appointed interiors, where guests receive a royal welcome followed by consistently delightful spa treatments of all kinds. Massage, traditional and medical-grade skincare, top-quality nail services, and body waxing are among their offerings. If you are physically active or especially stressed, book a time to experience their 60-minute deep tissue massage, which incorporates essential oils, menthol, hot and cold stone therapy, and a warm paraffin foot wrap—it’s heavenly.
