Welcome to Mary's Place by the Sea



Mary’s Place by the Sea is a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.  We provide services that complement their medical treatment, including oncology massages, nutrition education, individual psychotherapy, Reiki, guided meditation and yoga.  Mary’s Place by the Sea is not a medical facility with medical staff.  We offer integrative services to women with cancer and provide rest and support during this challenging time in their lives. They are empowered with knowledge that will aid them on their road to healing.
Since 2009, over 5,000 women with cancer have become "guests" of Mary's Place by the Sea.  Our guests speak about their experiences dealing with cancer and what they found at Mary's Place by the Sea.
