Heidi at Relaxing Moments knows that it can sometimes be difficult just to find a single moment to kick back and de-stress. Therefore, each of her services is tailored to meet her clients' needs, whether a simple paraffin dip to restore moisture to the hands is in order, or a deep-cleansing facial using all-natural Bioelements products would do the trick. Her pumice peel facial treatment, for example, sloughs off dull skin cells with pumice crystals??much like a microdermabrasion??in order to reveal a brighter complexion with fewer wrinkles and fine lines. And Heidi lavishes the treatment with an an arm and decolletage massage, ensuring complete relaxation.
Youthful Endeavors Aesthetics & MedSpa' staff, licensed aestheticians, and board-certified surgeon drive away signs of aging with a menu of cosmetic services and advanced skincare analyses.

Lorraine, a certified reflexologist since 2007, approaches healthcare from the ground up, focusing on the soles of the feet to treat a range of chronic health conditions. Under the premise that nerve endings on the foot correspond to every organ and gland in the body, Lorraine applies strategic pressures to heels, toes, and arches to relieve conditions, such as stress, arthritis, and plantar fasciitis. At the start of treatment, clients sink into a zero-gravity chair while Lorraine massages the feet. Then, using her thumbs in a rapid inchworm motion, she “thumb walks” up and down the foot, clearing away toxins and painful memories of stepping on pies.
Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with relaxing yoga classes and supportive personal-training sessions in a tranquil spa setting. Within the serene yoga studio, pupils fluidly glide into seated, reclined, and standing postures during stress-melting Hatha yoga as soft lighting radiates from sloped ceilings and wooden pillars maintain stoic tree poses. Students may also contact Whole Body Studio and Spa to enroll in specialized classes, such as therapeutic prenatal yoga or the Mom and Baby Yoga class, which whimsically whisks new mothers and infants through rejuvenating asanas.
Carolyn Schmitz at Destination Massage & Spa practices massage therapy to complement the staff’s aesthetic services. She can soothe sore flexors and impart a sense of calm during sessions that take as long as a leisurely crabwalk from one end of Rhode Island to the other—60 or 90 minutes. If her clients want services to complement a relaxing massage, Carolyn can direct them to hairstylists, nail technicians, and makeup artists.
After graduating from Carlson College of Massage Therapy, licensed therapist Kelli Auger stuck around and became an assistant instructor and clinic supervisor for her alma mater, which allowed her to share her knowledge with students while honing her skills. Drawing on these years of training and teaching, Kelli opened BodyOasis Therapeutic Massage, where she tends to muscles with four distinct modalities, including deep-tissue techniques, Swedish massage, and couples massage. While she primarily performs these modalities in-studio, Kelli also visits offices and cossets employees with chair massages to help increase productivity, boost morale, and ease shoulders weakened by hours of silent, mental screaming.
