Each month Yon-Ka Paris features our top spa partners as a way of helping you find the very best when it comes to luxury skincare experiences.
Due to their commitment to excellence when it comes to high touch, luxurious professional spa treatments, we award G2O Spa + Salon with our November 2022 “Spa of the Month”.
Recently awarded Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston 2022, G2O Spa is renowned in the industry for offering the latest in corrective skincare and alternative therapies. The spa is named after the formula for the essentials of life, and water is acknowledged as the force that cleanses, rejuvenates, and sustains both body and spirit.
Originally founded in 1994 by Joyce Hampers under the name Giuliano, G2O found its forever home in 2018. The spa is now housed in a 17,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art space on Exeter Street, right between Boston Common and Fenway Park in the Back Bay area of Boston.
Recent years have been rife with change and growth in the spa industry and G2O aims to come to the forefront with the appointment of Lisa Hills as the new Spa Director.
What Makes G2O Spa Unique?
G2O is your one-stop oasis all of your skincare needs. The spa menu goes above and beyond standard beauty and skincare services with alternative therapies, advanced technology treatments, and light therapy.

Lisa Hills Brings Decades Of Spa Experience To G2O
Having begun her career as a stylist right out of high school, Lisa Hills has over 40 years of experience in the beauty and wellness industry. She climbed the ladder to eventually become the Spa Director at a full day spa but put her career on pause to marry and start a family.
Hills has been with G2O for the past 11 years, serving as Client Relations Director and Retail Director. In her new role as Spa Director, Hills is embracing the opportunity to propel G2O into a successful future with the help of Yon-Ka Paris products. Yon-Ka products are at the heart of many of G2O’s luxurious treatments including Le Grand Classique and the Age Defying Facial.
G2O’s Partnership with Yon-Ka Paris
The G2O spa experience is crafted to deliver long-lasting results, powered by professional skincare products including Yon-Ka Paris. Of G2O’s partnership with Yon-Ka Paris, Hills comments: “One of the things I love about Yon-Ka is that the products do what they say they’re going to do.”
What first caught Hills’ eye when she was introduced to Yon-Ka Paris products was their simplicity. She notes that everything works without any complication for the user.
“The products address a lot of issues without being overly complicated. There’s not seven different products needed for one issue,” says Lisa Hills.
Though many of G2O’s spa services feature Yon-Ka products, Hills names Phyto Contour and Lait Nettoyant her personal favorites. Having used countless eye creams during her career in the beauty industry, Hills describes Phyto Contour as one of the best because it “helps [her] a lot under the eyes by making [her skin] look more refreshed and not tired all the time.”
For her dry skin, Hills appreciates the moisturizing benefit of Lait Nettoyant. She notes that other cleansers have traditionally dried out her skin much too harshly.
Lisa Hills has been a Yon-Ka Paris partner for more than 15 years. This partnership has enabled her to take advantage of countless educational opportunities including online resources and in-person training. Her Yon-Ka Paris partnership continues to help her in her new role as Spa Director at G2O.
