"This place is legit, I've only ever had AMAZING massages here. I'm a runner and consistently have tight muscles in my legs from high mileage so I use Boston Bodyworker as maintenance to prevent injury by getting monthly massages. I like deep tissue massage because I think it's most effective, so this place is perfect for me.

So I feel like I'm getting a massage and PT session. Love it."-Sarah
