Best of Boston

2008 Best Massage, Therapist, Sports

Michael Moore

When Moore talks about sports massage, he tends to sound a bit like a car mechanic. Forget the fluff-and-buff routine, he says: It’s all about giving muscles an old-fashioned tune-up. His expert kneading may make the body sore in the short run, but it also goes deep to root out stubborn stiffness. The first time you lace ’em up and hit the track after a stint on his table, you might just find yourself gliding along like a new Rolls.
