Anna, LMT

Inspired by her mother’s career as a nurse, Anna has always been interested in health and wellness. She believes our bodies and minds can work together to heal any dis-ease that we experience, but we often need a little help to reach that space of healing. If we want to create a healthier world, we have to start with ourselves and those closest to us. She became a massage therapist to help her sister cope with her rheumatoid arthritis, and while she passed away due to medical complications, Anna carries the hope that through clinical massage she can help other clients live fulfilling and active lives with as much comfort as possible.

During her undergraduate studies at Illinois State University, she learned about the incredible  benefits of massage therapy while studying abroad in Granada, Spain. When she returned stateside, Anna started pursuing her training at Cortiva Institute in the Loop while finishing her Bachelor’s in Spanish. She’s clinically trained in myofascial, deep tissue, and trigger point modalities.

Anna believes massage therapy is a vital component to the health of each individual. After living in Oregon, Spain, Australia and Hawai’i, she is happy to be home in the Chiagoland area and proud to be part of a team focused on whole health. She enjoys helping each client improve their pain, stress and health management.
