About the Instructor Mary Henderson

​​​Welcome to Massage Therapeutics! I am Mary Henderson, the instructor at Massage Therapeutics. I have been practicing therapeutic massage since 2001 and have been blessed with wonderful clients and a thriving practice in Gloucester, MA. I love seeing my clients get off of the table, with so much less pain and restriction. That has been my drive for all of these years!

What I bring to my classes is a love for therapeutic work and a desire to share great tools and skills with my students. I want you to go back to your practice the very next day and be able to start using these skills.

I went through the process to become an NCBTMB approved continuing education provider and began to teach in 2016. I provide a certificate of training for all of my classes.

I care about your success after you leave my class. My students can email me at any time with a question and can retake any of my classes through "refresher" openings for a substantial discount.

I am also a serious student of massage and have devoted many hours to my continuing education, both in formal classes and continuous research on my own.

I also know what it is like to work with pain and injuries. I teach these particular skills because of their effectiveness and minimal impact on both the client (significantly less discomfort) and the therapist!

I love this work, and I love to teach. And I enjoy watching my students develop the same sense of joy and excitement I have!
