Mass Metta Massage

What does Metta mean?

It is said that giving a Thai Yoga Massage is a physical expression of metta, a Sanskrit word meaning “loving kindness”.  Metta is the essence of this practice and the foundation of massage therapy as a form of healthcare.


What is the difference between Swedish Relaxation and Deep Tissue Massage?

In short, they are one in the same. I will apply as much pressure as is appropriate for your muscles and your comfort. Your massage should be relaxing whether the pressure is very light or very deep. 

I allow time before your massage to discuss pressure (or any other concerns you may have) as well as time after your massage for feedback. My goal is to provide focused treatments tailored to your individual needs. 


Do I need to fill out paperwork?

Yes, you will need to fill out a brief health history form upon your first visit to Mass Metta.  Though massage is appropriate for most, it is not appropriate for people with certain health conditions. I will need to know if you are currently under a physician’s care for a health condition or injury and you should be prepared to list and discuss any medications you are taking.

Can I get to Mass Metta via transit?

Yes. We are a short walk from Sullivan Station on the Orange Line, and also served by the 89 and 101 bus lines.

Is there parking?

Yes, there is on-street parking available.
