About Ann

In my early twenties, my mom gave me a gift card for a Swedish massage at a local luxury spa. My experience there completely changed my life. The room was pleasantly dim, the table was warm and cozy, the therapist was kind, confident, and skilled. When I left, I felt better than ever before in my life. Since then, I’ve received many massages- some great, some not great at all. I appreciate knowing the difference.

I enrolled in massage school shortly after that experience. When I started receiving regular massage, my life changed forever. I began understanding myself on a deeper level, and, for the first time, my body began to feel like home. This created space for a deeper understanding of my feelings, needs, and values.

My intention is that by honoring the innate human capacity to heal I can help create space for deep changes. I do my work in a judgement-free environment; all bodies are welcome. I am not here to fix you, because you are not broken. I am here to accept you just as you are today, in your perfectly imperfect, deeply intelligent human body.
