A friend in knead, is a friend … well, you get the picture. At SPA InterContinental, you are made privy to some savvy, sensual secrets as you follow the treatment of a resident therapist as the two of you work in tandem to massage your companion. And the capper? Reversing roles, so your friend can rub you the right way, too, all done in the serene environment of a modern spa overlooking the Rose Kennedy Greenway on the waterfront. It’s a soothing experience any way you look at it — whether you’re lying on the table or standing over it.
