So, you’ve spent the day hunched over a computer—and maybe the three inch heels at the office were a bad idea. Bottom line is your tortured body deserves a break. What better way to work out the kinks and stresses of daily life than a soothing massage? There are countless options in the Boston area, but here’s what makes these places the best: They strike a balance between relaxation and rigorous bodywork, pay attention to your pain and spend time where it counts. It also doesn’t hurt that they all offer great deals from time to time!
