Hello my name is Anna and massage is a way of life for me and a form of healing and my zen time that I have been involved in since I was two years old as I recall, tracing my dad’s moles on his back and putting him to sleep, and being his personal chiropractor, adjusting his back at six years old.
I might be little, but I'm mighty, heavy handed and not afraid to get on your back with my knees needed to get the job done.
I have been a Licensed Massage Practitioner since 2003. Got my training in the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Port Angeles WA.
I specialize in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Psoas work and neuromuscular therapy and cupping and hot stone, as well. I throw in random Thai massage and other modalities that I have picked up all these years. I tailor the massage by the client and the feel for the needs to be addressed. My favorite massage is pregnancy and I am a Doula (help in the delivery room to ease pain and discomfort of the mother for a healthy delivery) .
It brings me extreme joy to be blessed to be able to help people heal themselves with each massage session. The true healing begins within you. I just help you realize your true healing potential. Massage helps facilitate and let’s go of stored stress and trauma that helps clear that stagnant energy hindering healing and total well-being. Massage is extremely important for overall health and keeping diseases at bay.
When I am not massaging, I am a schoolteacher as well and I work out and hike and run and love to read and of course LOVE MUSIC! And traveling and learning and expanding my knowledge to better serve my clients by taking continuing ed classes. Look forward to helping you heal with one massage at a time.
