Massage Therapy of Boston would like to congratulate you on qualifying for the 2019 Boston Marathon! As the training ramps up over the next few months and your Saturday mileage increases, don’t forget that your body needs help recovering from those long strides.

When calling on your body to run for extended periods of time and lengths, your muscles will often swell and become tense. Massage Therapy can help relieve swelling, reduce tension, increase circulation, assist in elimination of excess waste (lactic acid) and increase your recovery rate immensely.  Other benefits of a Sports Massage include increasing range of motion and flexibility, and eliminating scar tissue.

Please remember to properly warm up while training outdoors this winter! Your muscles can not contract as efficiently in colder temperatures. The body’s inability to release oxygen from your hemoglobin in cold temperatures means less oxygen is available for your muscles, causing them to feel stiff and increasing your risk for injury.

At Massage Therapy of Boston we are offering a special for Boston Marathon runners this year, package of (3) 60 minute sessions at $10 off per session. You can use the link below to book your appointment online! Then let your practitioner know you are running this year and they will get you set up with a package! 

Be proactive, help your body recover faster and reduce your risk of injury. Completing the Boston Marathon, or any Marathon for that matter is a life goal for many of us.. lets do it right!


Massage Therapy of Boston will be closed indefinitely due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 in Boston. We want to ensure the safety of our staff, clients, and families. We hope to be back in full swing after May 6th. Please feel free to book an appointment for a later date via Vagaro our online booking site.

Small businesses all over Boston are going to be greatly affected by this epidemic and we ask that if you are in a good position to please consider doing what you can to help your local small businesses get through this hardship. Ways you can help include purchasing Gift Cards, shop at their online stores, leave a great review and postpone or reschedule your appointments rather than canceling.

We appreciate all of our amazing clients and are sending you all safe and healthy wishes.

With much gratitude,

Massage Therapy of Boston
