Editorial review from Citysearch 7/29/2012

Massage: The Missing Link in Addiction Treatment\r \r Incorporating massage into a substance abuse program is advantageous in all of the stages of quitting an addiction: withdrawal, detoxification and abstinence. The physical, emotional and spiritual components of recovery all can be directly benefited by the healing power of therapeutic touch. The nurturing contact of massage utilizes skin as the translator of the therapist’s intent. Skin, the largest sensory organ in our body, is our primary sense for connecting information from our external surroundings to our internal environment.\r \r The Touch Research Institute in Miami, Florida has performed scientific research documenting the physiological effects of massage on the body. Kosakoski reminds us of some of their findings on massage such as decreased pain, diminished autoimmune response, enhanced immune response, and increased alertness and performance. These effects appear to be related to massage’s ability to reduce cortisol, a stress hormone, as reported by the Touch Research Institute in 2003. Several of the Touch Research Institute’s studies positively document the ability of massage to decrease anxiety, depression, agitation, and cravings.\r \r more

GREAT! 3/15/2012

I used the Buy With Me coupons to have two massages with Michelle. It was easy to find and clean. My massages with Michelle were the BEST I have had, as I enjoy deep tissue. After explaining to her that I sit at a computer all day and night, she was able to work magic on my shoulders, neck and back. It is a bit expensive, but I think is TOTALLY worth the money!!! Michelle really took the time and effort to also show me stretches after to help improve my posture. more

I love this place... 9/22/2011

Eric is one of the most healing people I know -- massage has helped me through recovering from an illness, and relieving all of the stress and tension associated with it. Thank you!!! more

Grade A Massage in Boston's Back Bay! 9/22/2011

I highly recommend Eric and his team at Boston Massage Associates. I always find my massages very relaxing. Eric is excellent at relieving tension and stress carried in my neck back and shoulders without causing any pain or discomfort.\r \r If your looking for an effective and enjoyable massage, get over to BMA! more

Best massage in town 9/22/2011

I have chronic back and shoulder problems and have been searching for a good massage therapist. I first went to Massage associates last year and loved the experience. Eric did a fabulous job releasing the tension in my muscles and applied the perfect amount of pressure. I highly recommend Eric! more

Amazingly Effective - Best Massage in Town 9/22/2011

I go to Eric all the time to treat muscle spasms/cramps, low back pain, etc. I always feel MUCH better afterward, and the problem always resolves within a day or two, sometimes even the same night. I've had such wonderful and consistent results - Eric is just magic. I'm also a dancer, and I sometimes go for a massage before an intensive weekend of dancing - it has definitely helped my body to endure the days of strenuous activity. Not to mention it just feels great! Amazing technique, sense of pressure - I always leave feeling like a supple, graceful panther. =) Aside from all this, Eric is just a great guy - super nice, extremely personable, and a devoted environmentalist. Like many of his clients, I met him before he opened BMA, and followed him to his new practice - we just know he's the best around. ;D more

Best place in Boston for a massage! 9/22/2011

I can't recommend this place enough. Eric is the most talented, caring, thoughtful massage therapist I know. Definitely get your next massage at Boston Massage Associates! more

Eric is wonderful. 9/22/2011

I thought I needed a new mattress, when in fact what I needed was a superb massage - which is what I received. Besides being exquisitely sensitive to my body and expert at translating that therapeuitically, he is a kind and thoughtful person. more

Eric is the best around! 9/21/2011

I have been seeing Eric at Boston Massage Associates for a year now and he is the best massage therapist i have ever been to. I went to him with lower back pain, tension and stress in my shoulders and neck and he has amazingly worked out each kink! He's very gentle and attentive and has always made me feel extremely comfortable during my appointments. If you are looking for a great massage Eric is your guy! more

Eric is THE best therapist in all of Boston 10/28/2010

I have had massages every month for years and can truly say that Eric at Boston Massage Associates is THE best therapist I've ever had. He deserves to win the Best of Boston. more

Boston Massage Associates - Best Massage 10/12/2010

I have been going to Eric for massage for a number of years and I always feel 100% better when I leave. I have specific injuries and a very physical job that takes its toll - Eric literally puts me back together again. more

Fantastic Massage Therapist 10/12/2010

Eric is a fantastic massage therapist. I've been going to Eric since he was an employee with another massage business. When he decided to open up his own practice, it was a no-brainer to continue the relationship. \r \r Sports/deep tissue massages are inherently uncomfortable but Eric does a fantastic job working with the patient to ensure that the pressure isn't overwhelming.\r \r Don't hesitate in making an appointment with Eric. He's a top notch practitioner. In fact, writing this review is reminding me that I need to go make an appointment to see him! more

Great Masseuse, Great Human Being 10/12/2010

Eric, the founder and proprietor of Boston Massage Associates, is a very talented masseuse, and a great guy. As a long time martial artist, athlete, and now business owner, I've had about every pain, pulled muscle, strained ligament, and other sports related injury there is, and not to mention all the stress, knots and soreness that comes with sitting at a desk all day and running a business, and I can tell you that his massages not only were a great help in relieving my chronic muscle pain, and ailments, but greatly reduced my stress and tension as well. It's obvious that he's dedicated to his craft and knows exactly what he's doing. He's also just an all around nice guy, a pleasure to converse with, and a dedicated environmentalist and humanitarian. Definitely the best Masseuse in Boston. more

Best Massage in the Boston area 10/12/2010

Eric Derrico at Boston Massage Associates is absolutely the best massage therapist there is. He is professional and responsive to my needs at every session. He has helped me through stress, anxiety, chronic back pain, tight muscles, and general daily aches and pains. He incorporates stretching and body work into many of my sessions, which is incredibly helpful and, in my experience, very rare. Eric treats my husband and me, and we always come home feeling taller, happier, and more open. Thanks Eric! more

A Must for Runners 10/9/2010

Eric has an amazing gift as a body worker/massage therapist. I experienced an IT band injury after running the Boston Marathon. I wasn't sure if I was ever going to be able to tackle another marathon but working with Eric has given me a new lease on my running life (I am almost 59 years old) and am looking forward to many more marathons with Eric as my massage therapist. more
