Mary Ann Hartmon, Licensed Massage Therapist
I am excited about being able to work with you!
I’ll bet you’re wondering, why did I decide to become a Massage Therapist?
I have lived in this area all my life. After raising my family, it was finally time for me to do something for myself. At the age of 50 I found myself stuck in a dead end job and decided I needed less stress in my life.
When touring vocational schools with my sons, I found that many people age 40-60 were burning out in their professional jobs and were now looking to their interests. What brings joy to their live, that they could now turn into a new vocation? I knew that receiving massages made me feel better, so I thought, ‘Why not help others to better handle the stress in their lives?’ This led me to the St. Croix Center for the Healing Arts School of Massage and Body Work in Hudson, where I completed more than 1000 hours of training. This has been a fantastic journey for me filled with personal growth, fulfillment and immense satisfaction.
In July of 2009, I was finally able to let go of my stressful 9-5 job and move into providing massage on a full time basis. I am loving every bit of it! Life is good! You may have experienced my sessions previously when I was working at Harel Chiropractic in Hudson, or more recently through Peaceful Retreat Massage & Wellness Center in Stillwater.
I look forward to working with each of you to help you stay healthy and happy!
