Looking for a reset as we launch into autumn?  Check out this special offer at Pyara, an Aveda day spa. For October, in the spa’s Burlington and Cambridge locations, they bring back their popular 20% off pricing when clients book with their new talent.  In Hindi, the term pyara loosely translates to “dear” or “precious”.  After the long stretch of sun-drenched summer days here in New England, how about pausing to tend to our “precious” selves – both in mind and body?  An afternoon at Pyara offers a wealth of avenues for doing just that.



Pyara’s Spa menu is brimming with signature treatments – all of which can be blended to build a daylong escape with friends, your partner, or just you!  Their Rosemary Mint Awakening Body Wrap is designed to stimulate and nurture through exfoliation and a full body wrap scented with essences of rosemary and peppermint.  A scalp and foot massage finishes off the treatment.  Pyara’s Aqua Polish is a full body refinement using the therapeutic and exfoliating benefits of Dead Sea salts and skin conditioning essentials oils.  Or, renew your body and senses with the Spa’s Caribbean Therapy Body Treatment… this treatment begins with a dry exfoliation followed by a warm seaweed masque and comforting body wrap to smooth and detoxify. A Vichy shower water massage and restorative face, scalp and body massage complete this “island inspired experience”.

Pyara is open daily, in Cambridge (Harvard Square) at 1050 Mass Avenue, and in Burlington at 101 Middlesex Turnpike.  Appointments may be booked online or by telephone for either location.  Follow them on Facebook
