The licensed massage therapists at Bliss Massage Studio begin each treatment by applying Lotus Oil lotions and oils (and using a nut-free oil for clients with allergies) to muscles, limbs, and shoulders. It's an important step, since the oils help the therapists knead away stress with light-touch Swedish strokes and relieve pain with the more focused pressure of deep-tissue massage. The massages are a convenient way to escape from the pressures of work or school, especially since the studio offers 30-minute lunch-break massages and isn’t located in the center of the barren Siberian plain.

Massage Therapy Works

A ballroom dancer for more than 20 years, Richard Green understands how the body communicates. His work in ballet and modern dance instilled in him a deep fascination with structural alignment, muscular energy, and balance, as well as a comprehensive understanding of how the body heals from injury. Today, at Massage Therapy Works, he helms a large staff of highly trained massage therapists who customize each treatment chosen from a long list of therapies. Thai bodywork increases lymphatic drainage through massage and passive yoga poses, helping decompress joints and increase range of motion, while sports massages help active individuals prevent or recover from injuries sustained on the field or while acting out slow-motion replays. Meanwhile, classic techniques such as deep tissue and therapeutic massage assist in the removal of physical tension and mental stress and oncology massage helps bodies better manage symptoms of cancer treatment through gentle strokes, energy work, and guided meditation.

Skin & Body Works

Facials are the marquee treatments at Skin & Body Works, and the skin care professionals conduct each one with unhampered focus and an array of Murad products. Take, for instance, the hydrating facial. During this revitalizing treatment, the staff cleanses, exfoliates, and massages the skin in preparation for vitamin and hydrating masks that provide deep moisturization. Or, the super-c facial, which uses masks, serums, and a customized vitamin C treatment to nourish the complexion and fight signs of aging. Beyond facials, the staff also specializes in three methods of hair removal. Electrolysis and laser hair removal treatments are performed with state-of-the-art equipment, whereas skin-waxing techs follow strict sanitary practices that include utilizing disposable wooden applicators and bulldozing each table between appointments.

Salon 22’s stylist can primp hair for men, women, and children, but probably not yeti children.

Between launching city-centric websites like Cambridge Uncommon and Salem Uncommon and teaching journalism classes at Cambridge Community TV, freelance journalist Sam Baltrusis wrote his book Ghosts of Boston: Haunts of the Hub. In its pages he reveals 300 years of city history and ghost stories. He details unexplained sounds and hovering objects seen inside the Hub?s dorm rooms, apparitions witnessed on the Boston Common, and a colonial British solider glimpsed on the tracks at the Boylston station. His deft pen has also led him to become a regional stringer for The New York Times and his second book, Ghosts of Cambridge: Haunts of Harvard Square and Beyond hit shelves in September 2013.

Not content with relegating his words to the page, Sam also brings them to life through seasonal walking tours. Guides lit by handheld lanterns lead guests through the shadowy streets of downtown Boston. They divulge stories of murder and recall Cambridge's ominous history. They also answer questions such as which Harvard hall is the most haunted, which area church is home to the ghost of a British redcoat soldier, and which famously mustachioed ghosts are just wearing fake mustaches. The founder's literary background shows through on the tours, too, which are peppered with the lore of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles Dickens, and Edgar Allen Poe. When he's not guiding in-person guests, Sam doubles as a paranormal expert on the Biography Channel's, "Haunted Encounters" and on Ryan Buell's Paranormal Insider Radio.
