2005 Best Massage

David Costa,

Gone are the days of having to endure deep-tissue torture in order to feel terrific, thanks to the skills of master massage therapist David Costa. His touch is strong enough to relieve stress and aches, but soothing enough to remind you that you’re at a spa. Costa’s ACE treatment—a full-body exfoliation followed by a massage—is 80 minutes of pure bliss.
