Mary has been an educator for over thirty years. She currently teaches a Gentle Stretching Class at the Cape Ann YMCA. She also taught massage as an Adjunct Faculty at North Shore Community College and medical terminology at Wellspring House in Gloucester. In her previous career in addictions she provided substance abuse prevention training for colleges and universities throughout Massachusetts.
Mary has devoted close to one hundred hours to her continuing education, including myofascial release, manual lymph work, positional release, cupping massage, and low back and cervical work.
Mary Henderson is the instructor at Massage Therapeutics. Mary has been practicing therapeutic massage since 2001 and has a thriving practice in Gloucester, MA. Deep tissue massage, myofascial release, positional release, trigger point work and more recently cupping massage and structural integration have been central to her work.
At the outset of her career, Mary's driving force was to get substantial relief for clients who were suffering from muscular pain and soft tissue injury. Striving to provide the best care possible, Mary incorporated many therapeutic skills into her practice over the years. A committed student of massage, Mary has devoted many hours to her own continuing education. Her practice has reflected the integration of multiple modalities into a focused and effective approach to relieving pain and injury.
Mary's approach to massage therapy also reflects her own struggles with injuries over a long career. You may know of a massage therapist who had to leave the field due to injury. It is inevitable that you as a massage therapist, will have to think about the physical stress of this work. In massage school, students are being told that the average massage career is 5 years, in large part because of this issue.
Mary has worked through several potentially career ending injuries over the course of her practice. Learning new skills and improved body mechanics has been critical to maintaining a full practice and giving clients the care they need with more beneficial outcomes! This experience is reflected in the classes taught at Massage Therapeutics.
