La Residencia Spa – Luxury in Homelike Atmosphere
Named for a famous hotel in Spain, our small and cozy day spa is so quiet, so exclusive, and so comfortable, that your journey towards relaxation and renewal begins the moment you step through our flower-bedecked doorway.
A Spa Known for Skin Care Treatments & Personalized Care
Once inside, our seasoned and licensed staff treats each client with the utmost respect and care, going far beyond what you may experience at larger spas. This dedication to women's head-to-toe well-being sets us apart, as does our state-of-the-art anti-aging and anti-stress skin care treatments. Many of our beauty spa treatments are specifically formulated for skin over 40. But why wait until your fourth decade to get serious about skin care? La Residencia Spa recommends skin care treatment programs that guide one through the 20s and 30s as well.
Spa Stands Out Among Many Beauty Day Spas in Newton
Proprietress Jane Aransky, a licensed aesthetician and cosmetologist began her career in 1976 when there were just a handful of skin care salons in New England. Today, there are literally hundreds of beauty spas, devoted to beautiful skin. Jane holds a master's degree in psychological counseling, so her approach to beauty is focused on both inner and outer well-being.
The Day Spa's "Jane's Signature Facial"
Jane's skin treatments are results oriented. She applies both good sense and great products from around the globe. Daily stress, hormonal changes and environmental toxins effect the health of your skin. Jane's 90-minute Signature Facial has been called "transforming." Book an appointment today for Jane's 90-minute Signature Facial and experience the difference.
Jane's unique philosophy of great care, camaraderie and conversation, coupled with techniques and top-name products that are proven effective, have kept her day spa busy with an ultra-loyal clientele who swear that 90 minutes under their aesthetician's caring hands results in cleaner, clearer, brighter, tighter skin.
Skin Care Treatments with a Holistic Approach
As a licensed counselor, Jane sees facials not just as a beauty regimen, but also as a holistic healing treatment -- a way to eliminate the stress that can build up toxins in the body, causing less-than-optimum skin conditions. In her work, especially with women over 40, she addresses the social and hormonal elements that can often contribute to blotchiness, loss of elasticity, redness, fine lines and more.

The highly qualified women who work with Jane Aransky are experienced master aestheticians and massage therapists who hold advanced degrees in their chosen field. They can offer the most requested specialties, ranging from makeup artistry and massage therapy to treatments for rosacea and acne, to "almost painless" waxing.

What Our Clients Say
"I had a bad experience with a facial on Newbury Street before, one of the most painful experiences, which made me not get facials for years. Elena was very gentle, and her demeanor was very relaxing, as was the ambiance of the spa. I am definitely coming back!"
