Our Story

CURE de Repos is a new era concept with old world principles, who dare to breathe new life into Chestnut Hill with their first store opening. Transcend into a world of luxury, hi-end products, smells that tantalize the senses, and treatments that leave you wanting more.

Expect your customer service experience to be cosmopolitan, polished and finished. Our mantra is to exceed all client expectations beyond our capacity, and to fulfill that boutique experience which has missed the mark, in regards to these large corporations that seem to be taking over the market. CURE is a resurrection of personal touch, hi-end service, outstanding customer service, cleanliness, and the ultimate boutique spa experience
