About

Deepest Most Luxurious Massage!


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 wait...

It was actually too long of a session for me (this was a gift). The massage itself was very good.

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!

Business response:

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

It was a very cold night, but the table was heated and I was very comfortable and relaxed. This was my first massage so I don't have anything to compare it to. But it was an amazing experience for me.

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.

I have tried several other therapist over the years, but they don't even come close to Health Impact. I have a chronic condition due to a car accident and Health Impact has always gotten my back, neck and head straightened out. Here is a BIG "THANK YOU", especially to Mary Helen.

Mary Helen is the consummate professional, and I always leave feeling so much better than when I arrived. The hot stones really help loosen up those knots I feel, and she's able to work them out much easier. Plus the heat in winter always makes me feel relaxed.

Fantastic! Not only are her massages phenomenal, but she is a genuinely sweet and nice young lady. Makes you feel comfortable and important while finding and massaging your problem areas. She is the consummate professional in every sense and a joy to spend the 30, 60 or 90 minutes with. As a plus she has a young daughter who also is fantastic!

There was apparently a communication error because I was scheduled for the Ashiatsu massage, but instead got the Swedish massage. I would have pointed that out to Anna, but it was my first time and I thought the Ashiatsu part was coming but it never did. Still, very good massage.
