Boston Massage Therapists

All Practioners at The Boston Bodyworker are Nationally Certified and work full time careers in their respective fields. Therapists of The Boston Bodyworker are skilled in Advanced Clinical Massage specialties. On top of the experience and schooling required to work at The Boston Bodyworker, all therapist must complete an intensive 6 month training program in Orthopedic Massage where they receive their certification.

Clinical Massage

The Boston Bodyworker prides itself in being an Evidence Based Practice (EBP). Our practice is based on three essential components. The first component is that we stay current in research and gather accurate evidence which our therapists apply to each of their patient’s clinical massage treatments. Secondly as an EBP, The Boston Bodyworker employs only clinicians with considerable clinical experience in clinical massage. Our clinical massage therapists must have a minimum two years experience in clinical massage and also pass BBW-U, an in house training program. Most important, our clinical massage therapists always consider the values and needs of the patient. Through evidence-based bodywork, our clinicians gain results for our patients and through their knowledge, guide patients to the best form of treatment for the patient’s specific injury or need.

There are many types of clinical massage styles available to you. We encourage you to learn what some of the different types of clinical massages are and their intended uses, but you do not need to determine which type of clinical massage is right for you. When you visit with us, we will sit down and determine what the best form of clinical massage is according to your individual needs.

Deep Tissue Clinical Massage

Deep Tissue Clinical Massage (DTM) is based on Swedish massage and uses similar strokes but, unlike Swedish, it focuses on all muscle layers from the superficial to the deepest ones. DTM is a highly therapeutic and specific technique which is very effective in releasing restrictions of the deeper muscles and the underlying connective tissue. Although DTM can be performed on the whole body, it often focuses on specific affected areas.

Orthopedic Clinical Massage

What sets orthopedic clinical massage apart from the numerous other massage techniques is the fact that it, itself, is not a specific ‘technique’. Rather, the term ‘orthopedic’ is used to refer to the locomotor system, as it is used in conventional medicine. An analogy can be made with the phrase ‘orthopedic medicine’, which describes a conceptual approach to medical practice more than just one particular treatment method.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a combination of massage strokes and techniques combined with flexibility and specific exercise routines geared to increase an athletes performance capabilities. The application of Sports Massage is determined by ones own specific anatomical and physiological needs.


Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a highly specialized stretching technique used by therapists to treat patients with a variety of soft tissue problems. Myofascial Release is not massage. Myofascial Release is used to equalize muscle tension throughout the body.


Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a comprehensive program of soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. NMT is a deep form of bodywork that treats the many causes of acute pain, postural disorders and soft tissue damage.


Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique (A.R.T.), developed by Dr. Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP, is a system designed to treat soft tissue (muscles, tendons & ligaments) dysfunction. At the risk of over simplifying the technique, the injured or altered structure is shortened, and a soft contact is used just distal to the injured area where tension is developed into the lesion.


Pre/Post Pregnancy Clinical Massage

Clinical massage can help pregnant women and new mothers deal with the effects of the physical, hormonal and emotional changes caused by pregnancy and childbirth.


What our patients have to say about us:

I just went to Boston Bodyworker last night. I learned so much about my injury and the best stretches to help my injured leg! I also felt so much better after leaving. I would recommend this place to anyone interested in fixing a sport injury.

I was referred to the Boston Bodyworker from my physical therapist because of knee and leg pain while training for my first marathon last year. I had been to an orthopedic surgeon & physical therapist and what made the difference was Bostonbody Worker. After months of running through the pain and trying stretches, ice, hot packs, creams, etc. I was finally able to run pain free. I noticed a considerable difference even after the first visit. In addition to helping with my knee and leg pain, I learned a great deal about running a marathon for the fist time, the advice and expertise that I was given was priceless. Thank you!

I never really considered myself a candidate for massage therapy. That is, until I woke up one day in so much pain I could barely walk. Thankfully Drew was able to slot me in on that day. The instant relief of pain was miraculous. And the follow up stretching exercises at home had everything back to normal in about a week without a doctor or painkiller in sight. Thanks again Drew

My favorite thing about Boston Bodyworker is that they're so professional and very knowledgeable. They figure out what's really going on while they're working on you. It's amazing how much I've learned about my body here! They're super nice people too!
They bring body work to a whole new level of professionalism and effectiveness. You don't just get a massage. You get a treatment that really has a positive impact on your body and wellbeing. I had a treatment with Sal and my body was different afterwards; it was better. I can still feel the results the next day and I haven't slept so well in ages.
Best massage I've had in a year, and I've had about 7 total at different places. With my back tightness I need deep tissue massage to really loosen up and come out feeling noticeably better, but I feel like most places are mediocre and disappoint...not this place though! my massage therapist focused on the right spots and rode that line just under my pain threshold, which is what a solid deep tissue massage should do in my opinion...many places don't go deep enough and I often end up disappointed.
