Read more about the specific benefits of each of these massages here. With the combined focus of resolving your acute pains and relieving your stress, you'll come away feeling like a new man, a new woman, or a new cylon). (And let's face it, the new cylons are awesome.) NEMM is located at 147 Milk St, 8th Floor. That's a nice location.

Everyone knows that Swedes use a lot of oils in their famous massages, but did you know that Sweden is the world's second-largest consumer of lubricating oils? A 2006 study in The American Examiner of Suspicious Swedish Behavior reported that Swedes annually consume 1,460 gallons of lubricating oils per person. That comes out to exactly four gallons per person per day (leap year not factored in to avoid over-complication). And taking into account that children require less oil to become slick, it appears that adult Swedes may be lathering themselves with up to 12 gallons a day.
Massage therapist Michael Moore keeps the Boston Ballet limber. The award-winning healer has been the company's go-to bodywork provider for the past four years, and its dancers say he "truly understands the physical needs of the body." Before joining up with the ballet, Michael had plenty of experience maintaining hard-working bodies as a therapist for athletes, such as the U.S. Ski Team in Vail.
But Michael doesn't discriminate, and he gives each of his clients the same high-quality rubdown that the athletes enjoy. This attention to detail earned him Boston magazine's Best Massage Therapist award from 2006 to 2009. The magazine credited Michael with "consistently thorough handiwork that reversed our laptop shoulder and boosted our energy for days." He and former college athlete Steven Toland perform Moore Massage's treatments, which range from traditional Swedish kneads to Active Release Techniques, a patented style that aims to break up scar tissue and codependent muscles.
