Christine’s Day Spa & Electrolysis opened up almost 30 years ago when Christine was only 24 years old. To this day, she is so grateful for that leap of faith. Starting the business with electrolysis hair removal, she worked during the day and went to school at night to get her esthetics degree.
Two years later, the business moved to 1280 Centre Street in Newton and she started building a team that would help create the spa that it is today. Over the years, Christine’s Day Spa adjusted to the shifts in economics, pandemics, and everything in between. Almost 30 years later, we are thrilled to still be doing what we love to do...make people feel good about themselves.
Over the last few years with the pandemic, we have been blessed with the support of our staff and community and continue to provide a safe, relaxing environment for people to come to and calm their mind, uplift their spirit and invigorate their body. During Covid, in an effort to help those in need, Christine started a boutique where 20% of all purchases go to local charities. Having fun with this new journey, Christine has created a warm environment in the spa and online for gift shopping.
Christine would like to thank everyone who has ever been a part of the spa, both staff and community, who have helped make these last 30 years possible.

Leah graduated from The Massage School in Boston in 2022 and specializes in deep-tissue bodywork. She believes that with enough intuition from the therapist, anyone can receive deep-tissue work, and that modalities such as cupping and heat therapy can facilitate it as well. Most importantly, this can lead to a profound emotional unfolding over the long-term. To heal and transform one's body is to heal and transform oneself, and therefore one's experience of reality.
