About Us


Health Impact, LLC, is locally owned and operated by Mary Helen C. Thorne and was originally founded right here in Staunton in 2009 as a solo massage therapy practice. In 2013 I brought on Anna Betlej as a colleague to help share my work. She helped maintain the practice while I was on maternity leave. We have gone through several changes together, and look forward to the changes that come ahead. Our beautiful space is fully equipped with a waiting area, 2 massage/bodywork treatment rooms, 2 bathrooms (one with shower for salt treatments). Our treatment rooms are fully furnished to provide clients the best massage and bodywork experience. Health Impact has convenient online scheduling so that you can view our schedule at any time and book ...

Amazing, incredible! Every time I see Mary Helen I wonder why I don't make appointments more often.
by John on Feb 11
EVERYTHING about Mary Helen is beyond first rate. She provides without doubt the best therapeutic massage I have ever experienced. She listens to what you need and addressed your issues. But she is so good she always finds areas I didn't know I had a problem and fixes those too.Beyond that she is just an amazing person--warm, cordial yet professional. If you want to be all you can be, forget the Army, go see Mary Helen! When I had a knee replaced in 2013, the Doctor said "maybe you'll get up to two more years before the other one has to be replaced. Thanks to the work Mary Helen has done on that knee, it will be 4 years next month. What a blessing she has been and is.

Very relaxing. One of the best massages I have ever had.
by Raymond on Oct 11
Best deep tissue massage I've ever gotten. Anna seems to trust her clients to simply TELL HER when the pressure is too much and doesn't repeat the question whether it feels OK. She asked me once early on then let it be for the full hour and did her work. A masseuse in my experience often makes the mistake of repeating this question as if she's insecure about whether she's doing a good job. It seems to me any good masseuse should know that for the client, the less talking one engages in, the better the experience to just be able to relax and not think much less say anything. Anna applies a lot of pressure and works all of the knots out in a way that "hurts so good" is how I would put it. I LIKE that sensation. Some would describe it as too much/too painful. I'm sure Anna would accommodate for a client who feels such a massage is too intense; one need only say "less pressure, please" but I was most happy to get a REAL deep tissue massage.

Health Impact provides the best massage experience I've ever had - from the skill and professionalism of the therapist right down to the music playing softly in the room. I have badly damaged shoulders and a damaged lower back, and after my massage at Health Impact I feel 20 years younger. Now if I could only LOOK 20 years younger!

Glad you received a good experience. We are pleased to hear the feedback and work with you!

Mary Helen finds every "trigger point, " even those you didn't know existed. She is focused and deliberate in providing customized relief through carefully listening to her client's concerns and then intuitively "listening" to what their body needs to promote healing. She is the BEST massage therapist around.
