Named Best of Boston in 2007, 2008, and 2009 by Boston magazine, Moore Massage is a massage emporium focused firmly on preventive treatment. After ogling the studio's 1,500-square-foot clinic and education center, guests can unwind with the 75-minute initial massage, which provides 60 muscle melting minutes followed by 15 complimentary minutes to ensure no muscle is left un-kneaded. The 120-minute introductory acupuncture appointment helps allergy suffers reeling from the summer season find relief, and the 30-minute assisted stretching session helps loosen tightly-coiled tendons with expert taffy-pulling techniques. Each massage is performed by a highly trained massage therapist who will expertly remove knots from your muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. For an additional fee, longer massage options and massages from Michael Moore himself are available.
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.
