Jaclyn Ayotte, owner of Massage Therapy & Wellness of East Greenwich, grew up in a family that embraced alternative and holistic practices, and she herself had multiple conditions improved by chiropractic work and acupuncture. When her uncle died after a battle with melanoma, she was inspired to go into massage therapy and took an interest in massage for the elderly and those dealing with cancer. Since graduating from the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork, Jaclyn has earned certifications in other types of natural healing, such as reiki, reflexology, and acupressure. She also takes a particular interest in working with mothers-to-be and is a proponent of natural births and drug-free deliveries from storks that have passed thorough background checks.

With an artistic battalion of experienced aestheticians, Shimmer Salon and Day Spa coddles guests with a full crate of spa and salon services. Lounge in jewel-toned environs during a deluxe manicure and pedicure that pampers stressed digits and ensures nails don’t flee during the holidays. Twice as long as its express cousin, the signature Yonka facial employs botanically based skincare compounds to cleanse dirty mugs until they shine like much newer mugs. Stress slips off shoulders during a 30-minute massage that kneads rigidity out of neck and upper-back muscles, allowing knotted ligaments to unfurl as quickly as sails in a squall.
