Who is "MaryJade"?

In 2017, I received my New Jersey Medical Marijuana card and my life  changed for the better. Now I live my life as a fibromyalgia fighter and not a victim.  If you aren't aware, Fibromyalgia is a condition that displays as musculoskeletal pain accompanied by extreme fatigue, mood, and cognitive issues. I would endure long periods of solitude because it seemed the pain was never ending. The fatigue would not allow me to walk nor hold even a glass of water. Now I enjoy regular hikes and even decided to use my collective knowledge to help others.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist who specializes in Trigger Point and Neuromuscular Therapy, I study the body. I study the pain. I listen and pay attention because most of us ignore our bodies. I study both eastern and western theories to help formulate care plans to both prevent and decrease symptomatic discomfort of various pathologies. From this a great idea came to fruition: RXMaryJade.

The name RXMaryJade was born from the love of both of my Grandmothers, both named "Mary". Each Mary taught me valuable life lessons. On my mothers side I was taught how through random acts of kindness and mindfulness one person can better the lives of many. From my father's mother, I saw the value in opening your home to people from all walks of life and making sure they never go hungry and without a place to rest their head.

With these two strong female influences, I knew I was bound on the path of the caregiver. However not only do I help others heal in my travels, I teach them the valuable skills that they can use to heal themselves. I like to think of myself as a Modern American Shaman, a realistic holistic, if you will.

 

What does RXmaryJade do?

I provide access to holistic resources for the modern woman/man to live a complete and fulfilling life. Formerly, I was the Event Manager for the original Cannagather NJ and currently I am the Central New Jersey Chapter Leader for Ellementa Woman, a CBD/Cannabis educational group for women only. I am also a paying member of the National Hemp Association.

I believe we can all heal ourselves naturally if we pay attention to our Mind, Body, and Bills. My goal is to empower the cannabis/plant based holistic wellness community particularly the underserved and disenfranchised. My educational experiences spread knowledge to patients as well as nurture and cultivate entrepreneurial environments for those to support themselves.
