A friend of mine who lives in the Boston is a Groupon junkie. She loves to use them for massages and always sends me one as a gift (yay me!). We have experienced years of massages through Groupon and I have to say, this place takes the cake!! Full disclosure, I am a massage therapist. I have been practicing for 24 years (I don't usually disclose this to therapists working on me, however). I want to say that I'm not too terribly picky, but I would be lying. In all the years of experiencing myriad massages in the Boston area, this is the second I have found that I would go back to, and here is why: friendly service, clean treatment rooms (and linen), attention to client comfort, but most importantly- the massage therapist I visited (twice) is very body intuitive. Also, a difficult thing to accomplish as a therapist is maintaining a comfortable temperature of the room, for both the client and therapist. I was never too hot or too cold, so Yen hit the mark perfectly both times. That is tricky to do. I saw Yen, who didn't talk much (probably due to a bit of a language barrier) but who knew where to go on my body and how deeply to work. I have back and neck issues and he went right to work. I do deep tissue work in my practice, and his work was more about movement, energy blocks, balancing and then he got into the deeper work, once he got my back to open and release. He used the full hour to increase his pressure so that there was absolutely no pain, but I knew he was going deeper and deeper. That is the sign of a great therapist. Deep work should not hurt, if you do it right. My friend received her massage from Nelson, and she could not stop talking about how amazing he is. Parking is awesome. If you are coming to Sea Spa and it is on the right hand side of the road (sorry, I'm not familiar with road names), immediately after their building is a driveway. There is AMPLE (and free) parking out back and there are even shady spots, so it is perfect. We have gone both times on a Saturday; perhaps parking is not so available during the work week. After my massage, I am never quick to share how it was, because I have chronic pain and often it takes a while to know how it helped, or if it worked. This is the first massage I've had which kept my neck pain from coming back...for WEEKS!! Interestingly, the first time I saw Yen, he didn't work much on my neck at all, but I got incredible relief. We also got same day appointments the last time we went. That is amazing, for such talented therapists. We definitely hit the jackpot that day. The waiting room has some big, fluffy looking chairs, but they are too big and terribly uncomfortable. I am not including that on my evaluation, as to me, it is the massage I am judging, not the waiting room. I could care less about waiting for my massage.

Simple, clean location with friendly staff & a very wonderfully skilled massage therapist. Ask for Jennifer; you're in for a special, customized experience. All tension knots & sore muscles are dealt with professionally. The only problem is when it's over & you have to leave!

Strong hands massage
Its been almost two years and I'm still going here for all my massage needs. This establishment has gotten better with time. I have brought both my husband and at least one sister and their sentiments are that they had the best massage of all time at Sea Spa.

Excellent massage
I had a great experience at Sea Spa. The place was very clean and the staff was friendly and professional. Nelson gave me an amazing massage with perfect pressure and attention to the areas where I needed work. I would definitely recommend it and will absolutely be back.

Nice people, good massage
overall good experience . The girl who did my deep tissue massage had nice, strong hands and obviously knew what she was doing. I wish they could invest more into their decor ( atmosphere etc.) but it's not that important . However, one thing I didn't like is the multiple comsmetic stains left by previous customers on the little pillow I was offered to put my face on. I ended up getting a piece of tissue instead. But if you ask me whether I would go there again, I would say yes.

Solid massage establishment
Had a very nice experience at Sea Spa. The reception desk was welcoming. My massage was interesting. I generally enjoy a deep tissue massage, but I let the therapist do whatever he/she naturally gravitates to, after assessing my body. My therapist worked only on my back (I said back/neck were areas of concern) and there was a fair amount of rocking the muscle tissue. I rather enjoyed it, but as I told my friend after leaving, I will know in a day or two how it was. I got a decent night's sleep that evening, I didn't have overwhelming pain in my neck that I am accustomed to of late, and quite honestly, it's now been 3.5 days later and I am still feeling the effects of that massage. The warm towels at the end were devine. The music was very nice. Two recommendations: 1. The waiting area was dirty (dust on floors, inactive fountains with water in them, dusty shelves), and 2. My therapist left the room without telling me the massage was over. Since only my backside was worked on, I was unsure if 'All set' meant my massage was over, or I was 'all set' to flip over. :)

Luxurios
Yen was really good. Very friendly and calming. I had foot reflexology and I went right to sleep.

Great service
Yen has been my masseuse both times I've been there. He asks if there are specific areas I need worked on, and then makes sure to focus on those areas. I love how they massage with the hot towels after the oil, I've never had another massage where that was offered.

Nice and comfortable!
I got a Groupon for my recent massage at Sea Spa, and it was really great! My massage therapist was Stephanie, and she listened carefully to my problem areas and was communicative with me about pressure, etc. She was very personable and made me feel very comfortable. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is that the sound system was a little wonky, and kept fading in and out which was distracting until I tuned it out. Overall though, a great experience!
