"I've searched high and low for a massage therapist who understands the importance of flow while meeting a client's specific muscle relief requirements.
When I found Jess, I knew I was in good hands [pun intended]. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of places that feature good therapists who do a good job with deep tissue massages (my massage of choice). The difference between these therapists and Jess is that she pays close attention to my preferences for which muscle groups to work on, rather than following an inflexible routine throughout the entire massage.
I've been going to Jess primarily for over three years now, and have always come away with same result - feeling like jello after she's worked her magic. She's super friendly, laid back, and just goes with the flow.
Jess is also extremely understanding and flexible. I have had to reschedule a few appointments with her and calling her office was the easiest, most direct way to make sure I wasn't conflicting with her scheduling plans.
With Namaste Massage, there's no one else I need to tend to my muscles!"
"I tried out several massage places in Boston and the Lexington area and Namaste Massage is undoubtedly the best. Jess really can read your body and works at whatever level you need. She can do simple relaxation massage or hardcore therapeutic massage.
Recently I had a problem with spasms and my SI joint that my chiropractor couldn't resolve until Jess worked deeply and very focused on the problem area. I went to the chiropractor and the adjustment was super easy. In addition to her technical skills, Jess is a lovely, empathetic woman who works diligently to accommodate her client's schedules. I recommend her wholeheartedly!"
"Jess is the best massage therapist! She is highly skilled, experienced, strong, caring, and intuitive. Her space is beautiful, immaculate, and restful. I treasure my regular massages - they give me energy and balance and they have become an integral part of caring for myself."

"Best massage around – I've been on yoga retreats to Costa Rica where they employ body workers that are absolutely incredible. Jess, the proprietor of Namaste Massage, is as good or better than any of them. She has that rare mixture of excellence with the "feel" part of the massage along with the intellectual part- the knowledge of muscular and skeletal systems. Her new business space in Lexington is beautiful and comfortable, well worth the drive from wherever you live in the Boston area.
My opinion is that once you try Namaste, you'll never go anywhere else for a massage."
"THE best massage you'll ever have!! – Namaste Massage welcomes you in with its warm, inviting and serene decor. It's a gorgeous space. And a massage with Jess is like no other! She has a warm and wonderful personality and impeccable professionalism. As she works her magic and seamlessly melts away areas of tension, I feel myself melting into the lofty puff of flannel sheets and quilting lightly surrounding me on the very wide and comfortable massage table. It's heaven! I completely let go and as I get off the table I feel longer, wider and so very peaceful. I feel her intent and care every step of the way. Jess gives an awesome massage which is absolutely second to none!"
"Like many, I have a very stressful job. I also have advanced arthritis in a couple of joints. These two things make my muscles very tight and tense, and it's hard for me to relax. I've been seeing Jess monthly for the past five years. She is attentive and listens to what I tell her. She is flexible and will concentrate on problem areas while still finishing a full massage. She can also tell through manipulation and feel what areas are problems that I didn't know about! Going deeper in these areas helps so much--and I hadn't realized they needed attention.
Jess is professional. She's very calm and an excellent listener. I recommend her to everyone! A note for those who need instant gratification: Because she's so in demand, her schedule is fairly full. She has a great on-line booking system, and you should book 3-4 weeks in advance!"

"I have been going to Jess for many years and wouldn't consider anyone else! She is very good at what she does which is why she is often booked up. But she will often work with you to find space in her schedule, including letting you know if she has a cancellation.
She has been very helpful in helping me identify problems that need more attention than just massage and is always ready with the name of a provider if needed or to refer me to my physician for follow up. I go for deep tissue massage or hot stone on a regular basis and the experience never fails to be just what I needed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jess Watson to anyone!"
