Our Clients

"I walked out of here feeling like Gumby, my friends - no small feat considering all the tension I'd built up in my back over a spring time of stress at work. Upon arriving, I filled out a quick waiver and intake form, noting what kind of massage I'd like (athletic! with PRESSURE.) and pinpointing on a diagram my most-needy body parts."

"I live close by, but would definitely commute to get here- it's so worth it. Whether to recover from a sore back, or to de-stress or pamper- GO! You won't regret it."

"I cant't say enough good things about the massages and the treatment I have gotten here...The atmosphere is soothing and calming as soon as you walk in the door, the staff are friendly and helpful, incredibly knowledgeable and great listeners"

"I have been having chronic hamstring pain on my left leg after workouts and she worked on my lower back, glutes, hamstring, and calves. The day after I was able to sit for more than 30 minutes and get up without pain and it was awesome!"

"Absolutely the most professional and knowledgeable massage therapist I have ever experienced. I have very tight muscles and tendons and [they] knew exactly how to relax them. The place was spotless and beautiful with natural materials all over. The perfect unwind."

"I always thought a massage was a luxury. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Check out the appointment schedules of fortune 500 CEO's and top management - exercise and massage therapy is always scheduled."

"An extremely professional staff of massage therapists who totally understand their profession and the critical part they play in making us 'whole'."

"In my opinion, its the best place to get a massage in the Cambridge-Somerville area. Highly recommended."

"...tried acupuncture for the first time at Sollievo [she] is absolutely wonderful. She's informative, answers all your questions and you can tell she really cares and wants to create a treatment that is right for you."

"Sollievo is the only place I'll go now for acupuncture and massage. I've been there quite a bit this past year and the service and bodywork experience is excellent with every visit."

"From the beautiful decor, to the highly skilled and professional massage therapists, to the soothing atmosphere, this place is top notch! I would recommend it to anyone looking for quality massage and bodywork. Sollievo will make you feel at home."

"... highly skilled and sensitive hands not only found all of my sore spots, they also found the muscles responsible for the pain which were not always anywhere near the sore spots."

"... knowledge of anatomy and her uncanny ability to zero in were unbelievable. I left there in a new body."

"Going to Sollievo for massage therapy saved me during a period of intense stress in my life."

"My regular visits on weekends give me much-needed relief from the accumulated stresses and muscle kinks and pains of the work week."

"You'd never know that the bustle and noise of Mass. Ave. is right outside. It's well worth my travel from Boston to Cambridge."

New Therapy Available - Zero Balancing

Zero Balancing is a modality that works with the dynamics of structure and energy of the body. High energy areas are frequently experienced as tension, pain, discomfort and lack of mobility. Low energy areas are frequently experienced as weakness, fatigue, fragility or vulnerability. During a Zero Balancing session, a client rests on his or her back, typically in comfortable, exercise, yoga style clothing. The practitioner applies gentle hand contact to feet, hips, sacrum, ribs, shoulders, neck and head in order to create a zero balance state within the skeletal structure.

At a neutral energy state, otherwise stated as Zero balanced, clients frequently report a sense of increased awareness, wholeness, calm, well-being, restoration and euphoria. Zero Balancing can also be integrated into massage and craniosacral sessions. When booking, ask for Joseph
