For centuries mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. With this Groupon, $35 gets you a one-hour massage (a $70 value) from Hillary Adams Massage on Angell Street or, on Wednesdays, at Glow Spa in Warren. This Groupon is not valid for the hot-stone massage.
Escape the stresses of digging ditches along the highway with a choice of three muscle-melting massages—Swedish, deep tissue, or pregnancy. The classic Swedish provides tension-targeting relief and improved circulation with whole-body glides and kneads. Deep tissue uses more-intense direct pressure to target specific problem areas. Mothers-to-be can indulge in the pregnancy massage, which improves comfort and circulation to both mommy and baby.
The nurturing hands that will be kneading out your knotts belong to Hillary Adams. Adams is a nationally certified, Rhode Island–licensed massage therapist whose passion for pummeling pain is concentrated at the tips of her dexterous fingers. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Hillary Adams Massage
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 in Warren on Wednesdays, which houses a massage room furnished with modern decor and artwork.
