Paula has been in private practice since 2000 and continues to advance her studies in Body Memory Recall after first studying the practice from its founder, Jonathan Tripodi. Drawing on multiple modalities of massage to unleash the body's own healing abilities, the therapy treats the whole body and is thought to address the symptoms and causes of problems such as joint and muscle dysfunction, headaches, scoliosis, stress, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, pelvic pain, asthma, and an unwillingness to try cottage cheese.
Providing an armada of luxurious spa services and amenities, Tranquil Waters is a pampering palace that welcomes weary guests with cascading waterfalls, zen décor, and private treatment rooms. Part of European whitening line WhiteSCIENCE, the SpaWhite teeth-whitening system provides a way to get teeth sparkling that’s quick, safe, and far more effective than lackluster teeth-beiging. The powerful yet gentle method uses a mouthpiece filled with proprietary whitening gel, which is activated by a blue light, to whiten teeth in one or two 15-minute sessions with little to no pain or sensitivity. All grins are privately garnished in Tranquil Waters Wellness & Med-Aesthetics Center, allowing bashful canine teeth to uninhibitedly howl and chase their own tails around the tonsils.

Inside the studio’s private treatment room, the sounds of Asian music join with the flicker of warm candlelight to foster an atmosphere that calms the senses. Mari’s various massage techniques do their part, as well, working to alleviate the stresses of workdays spent crouched over computers or hiding from bosses in cramped supply closets.

Located inside a century-old Victorian home next to the historic Ladd Observatory, Hillary's Providence office reverberates with soothing new-age tunes by Dean Evenson. She also works out of Glow Face & Body Spa, which houses a massage room furnished with modern decor and artwork.
