History of Body Matters Day Spa

Body Matters, an AVEDA Concept Day Spa and Retail Center, is located in Middletown Rhode Island, just outside of historic Newport.

We have operated in the same location since 1995, and have expanded several times bringing our current space to 2,400 square feet which includes 6 treatment rooms, a private Swiss shower, & a guest relaxation waiting room.

Body Matters Day Spa began as a skin care center, but quickly expanded our spa focus to include hair, nail and massage services.

We currently offer a complete menu of services including facials, cosmetics, hair services, natural & gel nail care manicures and pedicures, massage, wellness treatments, & body treatments. Body Matters is an escape from the stresses of life; it is a source of nurturing services with caring people in a quiet environment.
