About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I'm a good listener. I am not afraid of "not knowing" and I'm not out to "fix" things using brute force. I approach massage as I do many things: as a conversation. I trust each of you and your bodies and experiences infinitely and honor every person who comes to see me. I like to empower clients and encourage their self-care. There's a lot of heart and presence combined with education and skill in my work, and while I don't think any of these things are unique, per se, I strive to live and work in a balance that feels right for me. Feedback and experience has told me that not all therapists combine presence and skillfulness things as often as it may seem.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Using my hands and my heart, my skills and my intuition, to connect with people in the spirit of wellness and long-lasting health! I love learning from you, my clients, and knowing that I am helping bring more comfort, smiles, peace and kindness to the world through the simple but PROFOUND work of massage therapy.

    I am extremely fortunate to have found Mary. Every visit with her I leave my appointment physically reset and better! As an avid runner and self-torture (HUMOR) based individual I thank you. Over the years I have beat myself up, but you have helped me with every appointment. With the second half of my running season starting up again, I know my appointments will pay for themselves. THANKS AGAIN!!!! ATHLETE's she is worth every minute.

    I had a massage with Mary yesterday. I found her to be the perfect blend of deeper work with a relaxing, nurturing touch. It is hard to find that combination. I would definitely recommend a massage with her

    Mary did a fantastic job of pinpointing my problem and did an amazing amount of work in the 30 minute window...She is very caring and listens. I highly recommend her, very warm, but professional...

    Mary's unique skill is bringing you not what you want, but what you need. Most massage therapists are hammers looking for nails when there are needy nails aplenty. Her job is to heal you, not scratch wear you itch. Get your mind right, get on her table, and let yourself receive.
    Mary G. Mar 27, 2015

    Ha! Amelia you're the best...now, people, I WILL scratch you where you itch if that's what you want, to be sure, but I do indeed look at big picture health alongside needy nails so integration, calming the nervous system, full body care is part of the deal ALWAYS. Occurring to me that our injuries are kind of like ski season in a resort town. They are what brings us to the appointment, but the beauty of the town in the other seasons is what makes people want to move there, or visit the massage table regularly. Does that make sense. Gonna leave it anyhow. Thank you for your generous feedback, Amelia!

    Mary is an intuitive, gifted massage therapist. She is also a patient and capable, enthusiastic teacher. My partner and I learned Infant Massage from her and our baby loves and benefits from it. As a family we're grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Mary. She really knows her stuff! My neck and shoulders have been especially blessed by the association.
    Mary G. Mar 27, 2015

    Neck and shoulders! Yay! So generous ... thank you Rebekah. I enjoyed being with your whole family. See you soon.

    Mary G. Mar 27, 2015

    Thank you, Stuart! Couldn't ask for a better client...may the good feelings continue.

  • Diane M. Mar 18, 2015
    My experience with Mary was amazing, she has a very calm and nurturing energy. She took the time to understand what I wanted from my visit, and she put all of herself into the massage. I felt sacred and re-energized. This woman has healing hands! :)
    Mary G. Mar 27, 2015

    Awww. Diane. Whenever you want to come back, door's open. Thank you for this beautiful feedback.

    Thank you, Claire! You're a joy to work with and I'm so glad to have met you! Wishing you all kinds of fun this spring. See you again soon, I hope. Thanks for sharing your feedback.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
First off: I try to book massages for myself at least two or three times a month; receiving massage keeps me in deeply in touch with the beautiful work we therapists offer, and receiving from different types of therapists keeps me attuned to new techniques and practices. Once or twice a month I also like to watch new or emergent bodywork & massage videos, or checknout online seminars from ABMP. I recently completed level one and two certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage and I am in the final stages of completing my Certified Educator of Infant Massage training.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
We are all different, and trusting and liking your therapist is big in my book. Many of us have learned the same techniques and most of us are perfectly effective at what we do. How to pick? Well, once you know the work "works" for your body/needs, simply find someone you connect with! Interpersonal compatibility is so helpful. Find a good listener. Find someone who likes to learn and who will show up with that beautiful "beginner's mind" at each session so the work stays fresh, effective, curious and deeply beneficial. Find someone who cares about you in the way YOU care about yourself. If you feel that mind body and spirit are all connected, like I do, find a therapist who shares that belief. No matter what you do, I encourage you to find a therapist who delivers not just hands-on techniques, but genuine kindness and respect for you, your body and your health. When you do, WORLDS can open!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
First sessions are typically a lot about learning. I'm a huge fan of regular massage. Magic happens when clients come back! Return visits are where the magic begins to unfold...where the conversations about health, goals, wellness, feeling amazing, etc. really grow and deepen.
