Annie’s years of training and intuitive touch were evident to me within the first moments of our massage. I have long suffered from deep piriformis pain and as a result hip joint and lower back dysfunction. Annie worked with skilled hands and a knowledgeable approach to help me manage my injury and minimize my discomfort. I would recommend Annie, she is truly a gem and I look forward to our continued work together.
