For centuries, mankind has envied pizza dough and wondered how we too could be kneaded to relaxed, savory states without paying for the luxury of being escorted via wooden paddle to a Sicilian brick oven. Smite smug pizza-pies with today’s Groupon to Boston Bodyworker in Copley Square. As part of Boston Bodyworker’s commitment to doing good for troubled anatomies, $10 from every Groupon purchased will benefit the Be Bold, Be Bald! cancer research initiative. Choose between the following options:
- For $55, you get a 60-minute massage (a $130 value)
- For $90, you get an Ultimate Recovery treatment, which includes an initial clinical massage ($130), Kinesio Tape session ($45), and a tube of Myo-Med pain-relieving cream ($15.95)—a $190.95 total value
Boston Bodyworker employs nationally certified practitioners who work full time in their respective fields. Each treatment begins with an initial consultation to decide which massage is right for you. Ultimate Recovery patients will then receive a mobility-enhancing Kinesio Tape treatment, a Japanese method of taping over and around muscles to give them support and stop painful over-contraction while allowing a full range of motion and ability to levitate. To accompany the rehabilitative technique, guests receive a take-home tube of all-natural Myo-Med, a pain-relief cream endorsed by Tom Brady.
If you opt for a 60-minute knead, you’ll choose (with the help of your therapist) from Boston Bodyworker’s vast range of clinical massage styles: orthopedic massage, sports massage, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, active release technique, deep tissue massage, pregnancy massage, and zero balancing. If you’ve been pounding the pavement in preparation for a marathon, opt for a sports massage to recharge, enhance endurance, and reduce recovery time. Or, challenge your massage therapist with active release, a difficult-to-perform technique that helps restore muscle motion, loosen nerves, and warm chilly bloods. Zero balancing aligns spiritual and corporeal aspects to ease worries and stress.
Save your tips for the spa: just as you wouldn’t tip your dentist for curing a throbbing molar, Boston Bodyworker asks you not to tip your body workers for easing your aching back. Their professional and trustworthy hands will methodically knead and heal your ailments into oblivion.

Yelpers give the Downtown location a five-star average, and the Copley Square location a 4.5-star average. > * A few years ago I also decided to try their kinesio taping for my knees and it helped a BUNCH. Totally worth it. – D J., Yelp, Downtown location
The Boston Bodyworker
The Boston Bodyworker has been treating pain and injuries in the Copley Square area for 15 years. Though the clinic's interior decor is warm and inviting, clients won’t find a robe or slippers waiting for them like at other massage centers. What they will find are exceptional clinical massages—ones that have caught the attention of CBS and the Improper Bostonian, who gave the center its Best Massage 2011 award. The massages are so effective because each of the more than a dozen therapists has passed an in-house training program and is required to stay up-to-date on current research.
Along with being members of the American Massage Therapy Association and Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and certified with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Drew and his team also volunteer their time and skills to such events and charities as the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s marathon. The Boston Bodyworker is a proud sponsor of the One Run for Boston, a 501c3 charity that raises money for the victims of the marathon bombings. In 2013, it helped raise over $91,000.00 for the One Fund.
