In high school, Hillary Adams stumbled upon a PBS TV special about massage therapy that inspired her to experiment with massage techniques on her friends and family. After graduating from college with degrees in English literature and anthropology, she reignited her teenage passion by enrolling at Bancroft School for Massage Therapy. Since completing massage school in 1999, Hillary has become a nationally certified and Rhode Island–licensed massage therapist who uses 100% natural oils and various modalities to treat clients ranging from pain-stricken weekend warriors to an 11-year-old girl receiving her first-ever massage.
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. Both of Hillary's locations offer ample parking, so guests don't have to worry about finding a place to park their car or stable their griffin.
At Body Kneads, RI licensed, certified massage therapists gradually teach muscles to release tension with custom treatments that incorporate traditional massage techniques.

Inside a tranquil massage emporium, BodySense's trained therapists help clients unwind both mentally and physically with a plethora of muscle-manipulation services. A one-hour massage session rewards hardworking torsos with a Swedish, sports, or deep-tissue treatment. The Swedish massage uses an array of flowing strokes to squish out underskin stress and untie flesh knots, transforming tense bodies into smooth, snuggly spirit satchels. A deep-tissue massage is recommended to release chronic tension and pain, and those with sports-related concerns can target troublesome areas with the sports massage, which delves deeply into muscles and connective tissue to help you rise up and crush the shot-putting competition.
Voted Best Day Spa 2010 by Rhode Island Monthly readers, Alayne White Spa beautifies and revitalizes guests. The Multivitamin Power Peel targets the face, neck, and décolleté (low-cut areas of the neck) regions, doing away with anti-aging aspirations, and instead adding luminosity to the skin and embracing facial wrinkles like the way a child embraces a ripe watermelon.
