I wanted to wait until at least the next day to write a review, because I was a bit lightheaded after my session. However, I woke up the next morning in so much less pain than I had been in years. This was not a "cookie-cutter" massage; Doug was able to remove stress knots and loosen up the tension in my upper back. He described thoroughly what he was doing and how and why it would benefit. I would highly recommend seeing Doug Turet for massage therapy.
The massage therapy session I had with Steve was extremely effective. He was able to target the specific problem areas I have and he also shared his vast knowledge with me to extend the benefits of the massage and prevent further injury. His professionalism, punctuality and caring nature makes him a massage therapist I will be recommending to my family and friends! Looking forward to my next visit!
I was very impressed with Donna's welcoming manner, pleasant and friendly personality, and more importantly her skill as a massage therapist, I received a great massage at a very fair fee. An added bonus is her relaxing massage room with beautiful full wall mural! I look forward to my next session.
I was dogsitting my parent's 12 year old Yorkie, who demonstrated classic signs of fear aggression and was very territorial in the home. When we took him for walks he would bark and snap at other dogs on the path. On his first visit Mike brought treats and notepads for us to take notes, and he stopped our little yorkie's barking in its tracks and demonstrated immense patience. Our dog even bit him on their first meeting, but Mike didn't miss a beat! With his therapy dog Finn we worked through our dog's aggression. Finn was never out of control and was as patient as Mike with our dog. The dog that we currently have compared to the dog that we initially brought to Mike are as different as night and day! We only had four sessions with Mike, but he is able to socialize off-leash with other dogs now (he doesn't play with them, but he's able to just be around them, which is so much better than before). And when we walk him he's now able to greet other dogs without trying to bite them, so we no longer get scared every time we see another dog walking on the street. Lastly, our Yorkie used to drag his feet while walking, trying to sniff every little thing. After our first few meetings with Mike he showed us how to get our dog to walk at a better pace, and to follow us better. Walks that used to take us an hour now take us about 20 minutes! I highly recommend his training! Not only did he drive out early every Saturday, but he also never complained about Davis Square's parking situation.
Eric's Healing Hands put him on my Top Five best massage List...this from someone who's had massage therapy for 20+ years. His european holistic approach offered deep relaxation followed by rejuvenation. Skilled, professional, gentle persona, outstanding.
She gave me a good first massage.
I had a terrible lower back pain after the therapy, I was relieved
I am new to Reiki but I am now a convert! Most recently I had the pleasure of experiencing Reiki I training with Grace. Grace had encouraged me to attend so that I would be able to practice Reiki healing on myself. I have non-small cell lung cancer (EGFR positive) and am currently being treated with the chemotherapy drug, Tarceva which has numerous side effects including, among other things, diarrhea and rash. The rash is prickly and "hot" all over my body, thus very uncomfortable! I was amazed that right after my Reiki treatment those feelings were gone! I think this is a dramatic example of the power of Reiki!!I am convinced that Reiki will help minimize my chemo side effects, and, as I continue to practice self healing, I have found that my symptoms have continued to be minimal. I would highly recommend Grace's Reiki training. She creates a peaceful, soothing atmosphere using all the senses: sound, scent, sight, touch, and taste. I loved her presentation style; she was able to simplify complex concepts while presenting important information. I would also recommend her Reiki therapy. Grace has continually used her Reiki skills to help me heal - using both distance Reiki and "hands-on" Reiki. She's a very generous as well as a very skilled practitioner. -Laurie Geary, M.Ed., PCC (Professional Certified Coach) www.ingearcoaching.com
Wonderful service. Oui Massage Therapy came to the hospital where my wife was staying and gave her a full massage right in her bed. Very respectful, very thorough, and just overall great service! Great communication too! Highly recommend them!
Love, love, love the energy of the practitioner as well as the therapy room. This is the place to go to if you are dealing with a health issue /addiction and are interested in alternative modalities. Cheryl is a highly skilled healer who puts you at ease instantly! She is prompt in following up with me after sessions. The inflammation in my leg has reduced remarkably since I started Reiki sessions with her. Highly recommend!
I was involved in an automobile accident several months before visiting and was unable to find any relief for my neck pain. I had tried physical therapy for months and it would help that day and maybe the next, but the pain came back. After a few massages I am like a new guy. I would recommend that anyone who has similar issues give this a try. The young lady is professional, and extremely responsive. The experience was completely relaxing and pleasant.
Coming from a high level sports background, it was nice to see someone so dedicated to a specific practice. Attention to detail and progression is a steady theme with the Barbell Therapy Model and it makes a huge difference. Strength is only part of the puzzle and you quickly realize that in sessions with Brett. I will continue going to him for quite some time.
Mieka has obvious skill and knowledge. I've had many massages with people who were advertised as professionals but they only knew how to perform a massage. Mieka knows anatomy & physiology and describes what she's finding with your muscles. I've already recommended her to family and friends.
Veronica was A-MAZING! I've had a lot of massages over the years and she is by far the best I've ever had. Absolutely awesome I'm going back again next week!!
I have been a client of Jennie Silva, massage therapist, for years and it just keeps getting better every visit. She has extensive knowledge and experience that she applies to her work, as well as an intuitiveness that I haven't come across in my experience with massage therapy. This clearly shows in how she is always honing her skills and techniques, while also trying new ones. Add to this her ability to listen and comprehend her clients needs, her background as a physical trainer, and her easy-going and professional manner and its no wonder I feel excellent every time and keep going back more.
I was very fortunate to hear about Steve from my yoga teacher. Steve is a true healer. I came to him with back discomfort and emotional pain. I came out of his office feeling light as a snowflake, physically and spiritually. This session has given me a burst of energy I needed to get over a difficult moment in life. Ever since Steve helped me, I've felt more aware of imbalances in my posture. I feel a muscle relieve and a calmer breath when I just remember his healing touch. I will definitely treat myself to his services again.
ShantiLoft Studio for yoga and reiki is a wonderful place to leave the outside world behind. Robin provides excellent guidance through Hatha yoga poses and meditation. I have participated in yoga classes on and off for 25 years and believe yoga to be an excellent gateway to the mind, body and spirit connection however; having a sensational teacher is key. Robin does a wonderful job and keeps me coming back for more each week. I have also experienced a very restorative reiki session at ShantiLoft. If you are considering yoga or reiki, try ShantiLoft, you will love it!
I have searched high and low for a great massage for the last 15 years and found Chris Benoit. Chris is fantastic. He works any problem areas you need. I love being able to book my appointments on-line.
My upper back, neck and shoulders feel so much better after much focused, extensive work on these areas. The rest of my body feels great too. Thanks, Bobby!

Manna massage is dedicated to creating meaningful and sustainable change in each client's soft tissue and is Brighton's best massage therapy. The work at Manna Massage is based on the premise that enhanced body awareness is the first step to symptom relief and wellness. The beauty of bodywork is that each practitioner brings his or her unique approach to a massage session. Each client and practitioner forms a unique working relationship, so finding the right fit is critical to successful bodywork. Anna Mulholland, founder of Manna Massage, meets with her clients to discuss the type of massage that will best meet their needs. After earning her diploma in Muscular Therapy in 2006 from the Cortiva Institute in Boston, Anna completed her Structural Integration training with the CORE Institute in November 2008, before opening Manna Massage. At Manna Massage, Anna specializes in several significant components of Therapeutic Massage: Myofascial Therapy: This form of therapy involves releasing tension through manipulating the deep fascia. The goal of this type of bodywork is to dissipate muscular tension and re-balance the body. In many cases, Anna will analyze a clients posture and recommend specific stretches or movements to support the benefits of Myofascial Therapy. Trigger Point Therapy: This form of Massage is also known Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), which provides relief for clients who are suffering from painful, acute spasms in their muscles. The technique involves applying static finger pressure to the affected area, breaking the rhythm of the spasm and diminishing pain. Structural Integration: Think of Structural Integration as the big picture result of Therapeutic Massage. This means that as the soft tissue or fascia is worked on, the body is given space to realign itself in a healthy manner. Often tension, injuries, and physical and emotional trauma are held by the soft tissue resulting in chronic pain and discomfort. Structural Integration creates balance and ease of motion in the entire body. Pregnancy Massage: Pregnant women suffer from everyday tensions and pre-existing injury patterns as well as ligament laxity and additional strains from the postural changes that occur during pregnancy. Pregnancy Massage is gentle and safe, and provides relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and myofascial pain especially in the lower back, neck, hips, and legs. Manna Massage is located in Brighton's Cleveland Circle and accessible from all three branches of the Green line (B line at Chestnut Hill Avenue, C line at Cleveland Circle and D line at Reservoir, refer to the map). Theres plenty of on-street metered parking available. Anna takes clients by appointment only. Just wait till I get my hands on you. - Anna Mulholland
