Helen James-Storey

LMT and Reiki Master

Sometimes we need the space to heal through energy work, and sometimes we really need those knots dissolved in our shoulders. I offer both sides of the spectrum and seamlessly combine them to offer both a deep emotional as well as physical experience. At the beginning of each appointment we will assess your needs together and decide how the hour would be most effective for you.

I graduated from the Florida School of Massage and have been practicing since 2003. I received an advanced certificat... more

Helen is just beyond amazing in every factor of a massage. She takes the time to listen to your needs. She is conscience of your privacy. She makes you feel comfortable in what can be a vulnerable state for some. And if you happen to be part of the LGBT community where you have had surgery or really any surgery a human can have she is the one to go to for scar massage!!

I have been having some deep pains in my hip. Helen was able to get right to that & work it out! She works wonders on your body & it great at identifying just what you need! She also taught me some stretches so that I could continue to work on my area of pain:) I love her new space too!

This was my first experience having a massage, and it was wonderful. My body has suffered so many accidents, and your massage got rid of much of the constant pain, at least for awhile. Your hands are magical at finding the problems, and I very much appreciate them and you.

First massage and I hope not my last! It hurt so good. I feel much better today and it was very helpful to get feedback about what I could do to help relieve some of the tension between massages. Hoping to get this on a bi-weekly basis! Do you have later appointments? I found I didn't really want to do anything but go to bed afterwards. Thanks Helen I enjoyed it immensely Gags

I had a very nice massage from Helen, who was very attentive and made sure I was comfortable. I would highly recommend Helen James-Storey, LMT. She is great and very professional. The atmosphere was unbelievable. It felt like I had walked off the street and walked into heaven it was so relaxing. Anyone visiting Helen should definitely schedule one or several of their treatments.

I really enjoyed going to Helen, she was very kind and eager to answer all my questions even before the actual massage occurred, such as my questions with redeeming a gift certificate I'd received. During the massage she really paid attention to the areas I told her I was in pain and she is very educated, trained, and experienced in giving a real massage that will actually relieve pain or tension.

Helen seems to be one of those rare massage therapists who understands the techniques of massage in relation to the functions of the body well enough to go well beyond offering just relaxation. It is wonderful to find a massage therapist who also knows the right techniques, right muscles and systems to address to help resolve health issues.
