Hello! My name is Annie. Here is a little bit of information about who I am and what I do:
I am a fully qualified Complementary Therapist, with a passion for supporting my clients so that they can achieve optimum wellness.
After leaving medical school to pursue a more holistic and complementary approach to healing, I qualified as a Reiki practitioner in 2010. I then went on to qualify as an ITEC Complementary Therapist in 2012 and have since been working using bodywork to support the health of my clients. I have experience supporting others in a variety of settings, including:
Residential Care Homes for the Elderly
Hospitals (including Paediatrics and Neonatal units)
Healing Tents at Music Festivals
In 2016, I spent 14 months working as an Intern for a well respected Edinburgh massage clinic, developing skills in Remedial and Deep Tissue Massage. Since then I have been developing my own practice and continuing my training.
In 2018, I explored my growing passion for pregnancy and birth work, by training as both a Birth Doula and a Post-Natal Doula with Conscious Birthing, a Doula UK accredited course. I am now a member of the Scottish Doula Network and Doulas Without Borders.To supplement my birth work, I completed rigorous training in Pregnancy Massage with WellMother in 2018.
I am passionate about life and in connecting with the raw creative energy that fuels it. This shows itself in my love for nature, the wild outdoors and gardening. Whether it is through dancing, singing, music, cooking or play, I enjoy the art of creative expression as a celebration of life. This energy flows through into my work and is a key reason to why I am so drawn to working with pregnancy and birth - what greater creative act is there than to make life! I truly care about those around me and take joy in supporting my clients as best as I can. My empathetic nature and peaceful energy shine through my work and I strive to support my clients so that they can feel empowered, listened to and cared for. If you need bodywork, or support for the birth of your baby, then I can be here for you.
Please do have a wee read of the testimonials that others have so kindly written, here.
I would be delighted to meet you and to see if I am able to support you in the ways that you need.
