Alexandria Donlan Testimonials

As an individual whose body relies on regular manual therapy due to overuse and athletic injuries over the years, Massage Therapy of Boston is a fabulous find! Ali is experienced, thorough, detail-oriented, and applies the perfect amount of pressure every time. She tailors each session to what needs the most attention and can pick up on my problem areas without me having to say a word. She’s a miracle worker for tension headaches, and I notice an immediate difference in my overall quality of movement following just one of her sessions. Highly recommend!

A.Z.

I visited Massage Therapy of Boston to help with my recovery from a nasty shoulder break. Ali has been fantastic helping me to gain range of motion and work on the tight muscles in my shoulder and neck resulting from the injury. Ali is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and knows just what muscles to target to be most effective. I highly recommend Massage Therapy…..

C.C

Before meeting Ali, I had continuous pain and irritation in my neck and back due to my passion for boxing. Through touch therapy and deep tissue massage, my joint pain began to subside and my range of motion improved almost immediately. Over months of treatment and continuous sessions, the flexibility in my spine had greatly improved and the pain I once had had completely dissipated. Every session with Ali has been therapeutic. Her calm and warm demeanor has always made it a very enjoyable experience. Her knowledge and expertise of her trade sets her apart from the rest. I would recommend Ali to anyone seeking a qualified massage therapist.

T.D.

I was amazed at the amount of pressure Ali can exert! I really felt like work was being done. Ali expertly found my sore spots and patiently worked them until they released. I appreciated that every stroke was purposeful and she really kept my goals in mind of reducing pain in my hips and freeing up movement in my neck and shoulders. I felt so much better after my session with Ali and sore in a really good sort of way.

Deborah McMahon Testimonials

I have had several massages with Deborah and each time i’ve got substantial release from stubborn tight back muscle knots and relief from aching shoulders. Her flow is steady and intuitive so that I feel great when getting off the table and it lasts several days afterwards. Definitely recommend!!
J.H

I have been working with Deb for a couple months and always feel great and loser afterward. I highly recommend going here.

G.S

I have been working with Deb for over a year for chronic neck and upper back discomfort. She is extremely knowledgeable in her anatomy and how the muscle groups work together and we have seen a huge improvement in a short period of time. I’m very grateful I found her!

Mike Shick Testimonials

It’s been wonderful to work with Mike – he really listens to me, and then helps me figure out exactly what my body needs.  He’s incredibly knowledgable and uses multiple techniques – I leave my appointments feeling 10 years younger!

A.N.

Mike is a gem!  In three sessions, he was able to increase my shoulder mobility from an old injury as well as help me recover from 170 miles on my bike.  He made me feel comfortable right away, asked good questions in terms of what brought me in, and was thoughtful and knowledgable about what might be causing the issues I was experiencing.  I’ve had a lot of body work over the years, and I would highly recommend Mike Shick from Massage Therapy of Boston.

N.E.

I had to write you and tell you that I had an amazing massage with Mike! He is professional, knowledgeable and courteous. After just a few minutes of work I could feel blood and energy flowing back to my cranky shoulder. I wish I was in town longer for another session with him! The office space is very comfortable and relaxing, and I was able to sink into the table.

S.L.

Mike has an incredible way of working with the body–engaging the tissue on a deep level while also doing fascial stretching to address postural imbalances.  He has the rare talent of being able to see the body as a whole, looking beyond the immediate areas of pain or tension.  My neck felt worlds better after my session with Mike and I could actually look all the way over my shoulder while backing up in the car for the first time in months!

S.T.

As a massage therapist I am very picky about who I get my body work from. I have seen Mike throughout the years and have always walked away from the treatment feeling not just relaxed but also impressed to find my pain completely gone. He has a wonderful technique that’s soothing but is also extremely effective in releasing trigger points and scar tissue. I would recommend anyone to see him.

V.N.

II’ve been getting massages from Mike for several years, on a regular basis, and he is one of the best therapists I’ve ever seen.  He really knows his stuff, and can help with a variety of issues including injury recovery, general flexibility, and stiffness that results from sitting too long.  Mike is personable and can work on customizing an approach to address any specific trigger point problem, or just to feel better and improve mobility.  I highly recommend him!
