Maryellen Thorp

Maryellen eased into her massage career in the mid 90's. Living in southern California and a certified personal trainer at the time, she became exposed to massage and bodywork. She began getting massage on a regular basis, and shortly after, decided that massage was a perfect career for her. She moved back east and attended AKS school of massage in Herndon, VA.

She no longer practices personal training but draws on her years of work in that field to help clients who are dealing with pain and injuries reach their wellness goals. She loves working with moms to be and also helping those dealing with life challenges such as cancer and other illnesses. She lives in Del Ray and spends her free time reading, in the garden and with her children and family.

At the Healing Tree, Maryellen specializes in the following massages:

  • Therapeutic
  • Deep Tissue
  • Myofascial Release
  • Oncology Massage
  • Prenatal
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Reflexology
