Amazing, incredible! Every time I see Mary Helen I wonder why I don't make appointments more often.

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.
