New Safety Measures




   To receive a treatment at Bailey Therapeutic Massage you must be fully COVID-19 vaccinated (2 shots) with at least one booster shot.


   You will be required to produce proof of your vaccination status to receive a massage.


   To receive your massage treatment, you must be free of fever or symptoms, or the suggestion of any illness when you arrive for your treatment.


   A COVID self-test is recommended before arriving for your scheduled appointment.


   You will be required to wear a mask at all times, before, during and after your massage treatment.


   Your mask must always properly cover both your nose and your mouth.


    Do not come for a massage if you have a known COVID-19 infection or you are in the isolation period.


    Do not come for a massage if you have had a known exposure to COVID-19 within the last 10 days.


Cancellation Policy


Bailey Therapeutic Massage will continue the cancellation policy it has always had in the past.

Please give at least a 24-hour notice before your scheduled appointment time if you know you must cancel your appointment.

In contrast, cancel your appointment at the last minute rather than arrive sick.

Do not appear for an appointment if you are not feeling well or suspect you may be sick. 



The Bailey Therapeutic Massage treatment and waiting room are now equipped with a Surgically Clean Air hospital grade Jade2.0 SCA5000C air purification system to protect you and your therapist from COVID and other air born viruses.

This multi-stage filtration system effectively pre-filters the air which then flows through a HEPA-Rx filter and an activated carbon filter. The air is purified with exposure to a high intensity ultraviolet lamp, and a titanium dioxide catalyst. Finally, the air is revitalized with negative ions which are known to supply more oxygen to the brain and increase alertness and energy.

Before, during and after your massage treatment the Jade air purifying machine will be in service.



Appointment Spacing


Massage and assisted stretching sessions will be scheduled with at least two hours left open between clients to ensure the rooms and air have been fully sanitized and safe for your treatment.

Please Note: A limited number of appointments will be available each week.




Your Therapist


Your therapist, Barry Bailey MS, LMT, Active Stretching Instructor/Coach has been fully vaccinated against COVID19 and has received three COVID booster shots.

Your therapist will always wear a mask while in your presence.

Extensive safety measures against COVID are necessary for the safety of your therapist [Doctor's orders].
Please respect and follow the guidelines listed above for massage clients.




Self-Massage and Pain Relief Consultations
are also available with Barry Bailey, MS, LMT, Active Stretching Instructor/Coach
via ZOOM.


If you are seeking help and guidance for easing tight or sore muscles,
headaches, or for other pain relief,
and you are willing to take personal responsibility for your self-healing,
a ZOOM Consultation may be helpful for you.


My Philosophy

Beginning with the premise that the body wants to be well and will do all it can to be well, we work with clients to help them reach and maintain that wellness they seek, be it stress relief, pain relief or some other change.

At Bailey Therapeutic Massage I treat the whole person, not just muscles and other soft tissue.  I encourage my clients to take personal responsibility for their health, and I assist each client by offering suggestions for taking an active role in achieving and maintaining their own wellness.  
I work closely with other Health Professionals in the area in an effort to help clients obtain maximum results. It is often through this sharing of expert knowledge and approach that clients achieve the wellness they seek and deserve.

About Bailey Therapeutic Massage

Barry Bailey opened the original Bailey Therapeutic Massage practice in 1992 at 9 Nason Street in Downtown Maynard. Seven years later the practice moved across the street to the current larger and more accommodating quarters at 14 Nason Street.

In 2004 Barry opened the STAR Tech Healing and Learning Center as a division of Bailey Therapeutic Massage. He continues to "Teach the world how to heal itself . . . one BODY at a time" by sharing with his clients information that deals with body, mind and spiritual healing and wellness.

Over the years Bailey Therapeutic Massage has become well known as a location for people young and old who are in pain, to seek pain relief and education as to how to ease their current pain and to prevent future pain.

  Since 2003 Bailey Therapeutic Massage has been the proud winner of numerous Community Newspaper Chain's Readers Choice Awards - Best Massage in Maynard.

We were honored with the Best In Maynard award in  2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. With nearly a dozen Massage Therapists practicing in the tiny town of Maynard over those years, and many dozens more practicing in the immediate surrounding communities, this honor is all the more special.
