About Anna

Over the past 8 years I have explored a variety of somatic practices and modalities. With particular interest and experience in Contact Improvisation as well as the Feldenkrais Method, I’ve developed embodied sensitivity which is fundamental to the way I practice massage.

I work in an intuitive and creative way, listening to the individual needs of my clients. While my approach is strongly rooted in sensing and responding to the body in the present moment, it remains grounded in the tried and tested techniques of thai yoga massage.

My training includes:

-Advanced chair massage with Gladwell Massage (accredited by FHT) (2023)

-Anatomy, physiology and pathology (Federation of Holistic Therapists) (2023)

-Traditional Thai yoga massage course with Betty Papadopoulou (Sunshine Network) (2022)

-Thai massage 1:1 tuition with Justin Philpott (2021-ongoing)

I am fully insured.

In personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walking in nature and painting.
