Mary Helen is a 2008 graduate of the Athletic Training program at Bridgewater College and a Staunton native. She continued her education at the Virginia School of Massage and graduated in 2008. She completed the NCBTMB National Certificate in 2009. She specializes in deep tissue by using barefoot bodywork also called Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy(2012 - current). This allows her to get the deep pressure her clients need without sacrificing her body! Each massage is often a blend of modalities to help her and the client achieve the session goals.  In 2017, she obtained her Aromatherapy Certification, to better serve her clients with correct information and Aromatherapy education. In 2018/2019 she has also attended contenting education classes geared toward the barefoot bodywork, to steer the practice in a more clinical setting.

The whole rest of the day, I had no pain. The massage worked better than my usual Tylenol! :)

Always sweet and ready to take care of you. She’s thorough in the massage and gives attention to the whole body, as well as takes time in the areas that need attention.

I went in with an overuse running issue and Mary Helen did a great job to help get me back on the pavement. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has muscle soreness/needs myofascial release to get back to doing the activities that they enjoy.

Again, I love every massage session with Mary Helen Thorn. She spends time listeneing and asking questions about my overall health, anything special going on. She has an amazing talent for finding just the absolutely right places that need work and is always able to make me feel better when I leave. I have serious spinal conditions and Mary Helen Thorn known how to address these issues and help control the pain.

expertly gave the right amount of deep tissue, yet was able to "dial back" when needed in areas with issues. Mary Helen has the perfect blend of professionalism and care so that you feel professionally cared for by a deeply, caring individual.
