Jim Thorpe has been Shelley Roberts’ home for more than half of her life. She and co-owner Amy Levinson have been involved in massage, wellness and healing since 1989 and founded Mountain Massage, Inc. at Split Rock Resort.
Now they’ve just re-opened in Jim Thorpe! Jim Thorpe Massage & Wellness Studio is located at 69 Broadway and open 7 days a week. Their grand opening is on April 23rd, Earth Day, from 10 am to 5 pm. It will include drawings, discount coupons, snacks and beverages.
Shelley’s passions include herbal medicine and natural cooking. Some of her children were born at home- one in a birthing tub, and one at the hospital. Inside of her right wrist a tattoo done by her oldest daughter says, “Anyone can have boring.” Shelley is currently working on her first book.
Shelley met Amy Levinson, her new business partner at Amy’s “pick your own” A & B Blueberry Farm in Forest Inn during the summer of 2014. Amy, a licensed massage therapist from New York, had relocated to the area several years earlier.
Over the next years not only a friendship developed, but partnership was born. Amy has been practicing massage in the Tri-State area since 2001. Amy’s interests include growing, cooking, and preserving food, she is also a KCBS bar-b-que judge. Amy has two daughters, a dog, chickens and turkeys.
When they met, Shelley was working as a cyber-school elementary teacher, and Amy was tending her farm. They decided to join forces, secure a location and share their healing arts.
