organic is a lifestyle

Our mission is to provide the best skincare and spa services, without compromising health or environment. 

Balans Organic Spa is the first spa in Boston to introduce 100% organic skincare, by Swedish standards. We are also the first spa to provide extensive nutrition, health, and lifestyle support.

We believe in health from the inside and out, and we believe in a clean and safe world. 

We work exclusively with MARIA ÅKERBERG – a 100% organic skincare line, made in Sweden.  Balans was the first to bring these products to the US.
