She has been a licensed massage therapist since 1996 with continuing education in oncology massage, manual lymphatic drainage, trigger point therapy, deep tissue and sports massage as well as Thai massage and foot reflexology. Mary Jane’s practice is an integration of these modalities to provide an individualized and unique therapy for each client she enjoys teaching and providing tools to empower people to take responsibility for their health and well-being.

“I enjoy interacting with people and helping them with health care-related issues. Integrative medicine allows for a broader range of options in relation to health care. I believe in the ability of the body to heal itself, given some tools and space to do so. I enjoy guiding clients through a new way of thinking and participating in the healing process with them. It is humbling and rewarding.”

  • Integrative Medicine

    Integrative medicine combines evidence-based therapies from multiple disciplines to facilitate a person’s innate ability to heal. The physician and patient work together using conventional Western medicine as well as Eastern medicine practices and movement, mind-body and natural therapies to promote health of the mind, body and spirit.

  • Massage Therapy
    Massage therapy involves pressing, rubbing and otherwise manipulating muscles and soft tissues of the body, causing them to relax and lengthen and allowing pain-relieving oxygen and blood to flow to the affected area. Massage is considered effective for relieving any type of pain in the body's soft tissues, including back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, bursitis and tendonitis.
