Reflections

"I feel calmer, more centered, and more present when I leave a yoga class with Mary. Having these callbacks into my body and my self help me stay balanced in doing better and more loving work for justice in the world."

— Sarah C.

"Whenever I have a session with Mary, I leave feeling cared for, rested, and whole. It helps me remember how important it is to ask for help and to take the time to slow down and receive it. I always end up in a much better place to do all the things I do in the world and to do them from the slower and more sparkly space that is my restored being-ness."

Julia Corley, Somatic Psychotherapist and Certified Hakomi Teacher

"As a yoga teacher, I am very interested in how the body expresses our inner condition. Mary has a remarkable understanding of the subtle energies of the body. She has helped me release trauma in my back and shoulders that I have been carrying around for many years. Mary is clearly here to help facilitate healing in others. I have referred her to friends and yoga students and would recommend her to anyone interested in finding more ease and well being in themselves."

All healing happens in present time. Come home to your body and the present moment.

"I have been seeing Mary Justus for nearly four years, after working with six previous therapists. I was so satisfied that I elected to remain with her when she switched locations. She offers a highly effective fusion session that combines Polarity Therapy and deep tissue massage. Her techniques, pacing, communication, and table-side manner are exemplary. I love how she is able to 'read' what my body needs at any given time, so no two sessions are completely identical. She is sensitive to areas that require special attention and ready to adjust pressure or direction the instant the need arises. My one regret is there is only one of her!"

"Mary is rather amazing.  Her energy work is highly intuitive, deep and impactful as she masterfully interweaves it with massage therapy to create shifts for space to naturally open up within.  If you are looking for massage work, she's awesome!  If you're looking for energy work, look no farther as she is truly a jewel."

"Mary's beautiful souls shines through in everything she does--whether a yoga class or a session--her healing presence will soothe your aches and melt away your stress."

"As a physician and a patient with inflammatory arthritis, I know that traditional medicine only goes so far. Mary's healing touch is an integral part of my well-being. She is skilled beyond compare, but her warmth, kindness, empathy and nurturing are just as important. I am so thankful for Mary!"

— O. Cohen, M.D.

"Reiki class with Mary has taught me to be present for my pain; to move beyond a body awareness dominated by emotion; to experience connectedness and peaceful, vibrant energy.  She creates a space and gathering with a sense of intention, trust, and sacred wisdom that you can take with you, and know that you're not alone on your journey of awakening."

— Christina A.

"I can’t possibly say enough good things about the wonderful work Mary does. Her extensive knowledge of the body, combined with the calm and healing energy she brings to each session, makes for an exceptional experience. The benefits linger from one remarkable session to the next. Mary is extraordinary."

— P.C.

"I had the pleasure of taking prenatal, postnatal, and mindfulness yoga classes with Mary. I have also received massage and cupping from her skilled hands. Mary's work was transformative for me during a really critical juncture in my life. My prenatal yoga practice helped me to find great peace and strength during my pregnancy and was critical in helping me prepare for what ended up being a beautiful birth experience. I really appreciate how Mary blends physical technique with mindful presence in all her work."

— MC Lingold

"Attending prenatal and postnatal classes not only helped me stay connected with my mind and body, it connected me with a community of new moms and their incredible kiddos.  I am forever grateful for the confidence Mary inspired in me as I prepared for labor.  Despite the support of my midwife, doula, and husband, it was Mary's calming voice, reminding me to check in with my breathing and reassuring me that I can do anything for one minute, that helped me stay centered and focused during labor.  Though we have aged out of postnatal yoga, my kiddo and I step outside each morning, breathe the fresh air, and set an intention for the day.  We then recite the calming words that Mary ended each class with, 'kind thoughts, kind speech, be kind to yourself.'"
