Anna first became interested in a more holistic view of health when she was 21 and she met a naturopath & osteopath who really helped her regain her health when more conventional forms of medicine hadn’t worked.
She became interested in bodywork and the power of human touch and went on to study massage, qualifying in 2006 as a Holistic massage therapist. She then went on to study seated acupressure massage in 2007.
Anna offers Thai Yoga Massage. Thai Yoga Massage is a wonderfully relaxing, ‘stretchtastic’ and therapeutic form of traditional Thai massage, where you remain fully clothed while you are taken through a series of stretches and positions. Lots of soothing acupressure is also applied, all designed to help loosen up tightness in muscles and joints, release fascial restrictions, while also stimulating the circulation of blood, lymph and energy, and promoting a wonderful sense of healing and relaxation.
She has continued to develop her skills over the years and most recently studied with the inspirational teacher and therapist Beata Aleksandrowic. Her “Pure Massage” deep tissue techniques are simple yet effective and there is a wonderful rhythmic, dance like nature to this treatment that causes the body to enter a deep state of relaxation. There is a real emphasis on “listening” to the body through the treatment so that it is possible to work really deeply but always with awareness.
Anna enjoys continuing to learn and develop as a therapist and brings lots of warmth and happiness into her treatments. She understands how important massage and the human touch can be in our increasingly busy lives and takes pleasure in being able to share this great therapy with others.
