My name is (not) Mary Jane

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Karen and I am the founder, owner, and a massage therapist at Mary Jane’s Awe Spa. I first discovered massage therapy when I was twenty-one and sprained my back. I was out of work, and unable to take the pain medication, because I was a single mom to an eighteen month old. Massage was the only thing that helped me get through it. I began my career as a massage therapist in 2002, after having my three children and finally having the courage to pursue my passion which is to heal people who are suffering from chronic or acute pain. Seventeen years later, my passion for healing is just as strong, if not stronger.

Since 2013, I have split my time between Mammoth Lakes, and the West Los Angeles area. I currently work in Mammoth Lakes, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Bel Air. My clients tend to lead very active and highly stressful lifestyles, many of them in the public eye. I decided to open Mary Jane’s Awe Spa in Mammoth Lakes, because it will always be my home.


I have witnessed first hand, the healing effects of the thermal cycle. And during my battle with breast cancer, I experienced the healing power of cannabis. With Mary Jane’s Awe Spa I am able to bring both of these amazing treatments together, to give you the ultimate spa experience.
