Best of Boston

2007 Best Massage

Michael Moore

“Bloodless surgery” isn’t a phrase typically associated with spa treatments. Then again, there’s nothing typical about the way that Quincy native Moore—who coined the term to describe his massages—operates. His Stuart Street office is just that: an office, with no cucumber water or silk robes in sight. In place of such frippery, you get what is simply the best deep-tissue, Swedish, and therapeutic massages in Boston, for half the price of most rubdowns elsewhere. This year Moore’s list of clients (which includes several local politicians, athletes, and news anchors) grew so lengthy that he opened a second location in Brookline.
