Best of Boston

2008 Best Massage, Therapist

Sarah McMahon

Trained in such advanced techniques as trigger-point work and myofascial release, McMahon often assists victims of trauma, but is equally skilled at treating those afflicted by everyday stress. She views massage as a necessity, not a luxury, and charges accordingly reasonable rates ($85 for 60 minutes) for an experience that will feel more like an afternoon at the spa than one at the, ouch, chiropractor.
