Mary Helen Thorne is by far the best Massage Therapist I have ever experienced. I have used many different types and styles of massage therapy and therapist in Maryland and Virginia. Not one of them can hold a candle to Mary Helen's care, concern, skill or professionalism.

Using the feet for the bar therapy kind of sounded gross and weird to me at first, but definitely worth giving it a shot.

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!
