"Annie is a naturally gifted, compassionate healer who brought her serene support into our home as our postpartum doula. As first-time parents living hundreds of miles from our families, my husband and I needed help just feeding ourselves following the arrival of our little girl. Our whole world was turned upside down. Annie not only cooked us delicious meals to support healing and lactation, she helped us with housework and made it feel like we didn’t need to worry about the day-to-day stuff while we focused on figuring out caring for a tiny baby. She also helped me recover from childbirth with her beautifully intuitive bodywork, giving me massages and reflexology to ensure I was in a state of relaxation and calm every time she left from her visit. Her ability to support postpartum healing also extends to the wonderful tinctures and salves she makes from locally foraged herbs and medicinals. I purchased her sitz bath tea to help me heal my lacerations and her nipple balm to help support my breastfeeding journey and found both of her concoctions miraculously reduced my discomfort and recovery time and smelled lovely, too. Annie was an integral part of my postpartum experience, bringing light and love to each visit while helping me and my husband through such a tumultuous time. I will be forever grateful for the support she gave our little family, and particularly me as a new mother, during those first few weeks." - Jenny
"I have been suffering with hyperemesis, with variable intensity, all through my pregnancy. I started seeing Annie hoping massage would help and ease off some of the discomfort, and it worked! After every session I felt relaxed and nausea stayed away for a few hours each time and the days I got a massage I never vomited. This beneficial effect was short lived but nonetheless very powerful.
One time I arrived at Annie’s feeling very sick and I thought I was going to have to leave the session but after 20 minutes or so in the session I started feeling much better and even the stomach relaxed and I stopped feeling nauseated."- Erika
“I have seen Annie a few times now for pregnancy massage, she really is a wonderful therapist that takes time to listen and address any aches and pains. Annie has not only helped me relax physically she has also provided both practical and emotional support which has in turn given me the confidence to progress through my pregnancy and make any choices I have needed to with confidence. Thank you.”
“This is to say a big thank you to you! I came to you on Monday evening with a sore lower back. I'm indebted to you as after a couple of days can honestly say feel it's on the mend. Can't stress how much I appreciate your skill. You must be made aware how important it is to us folk.”
"I have had several massages from Annie over the years and have always found Annie to be very professional supportive and intuitive.
Last year I was suffering from neck stiffness and a rotator cuff injury and Annie put me on the road to recovery with a series of gentle deep muscle massages and some great empowering exercises. Annie also has a great knowledge of healing herbs which she makes into wonderfully soothing massage oils. Thankyou!"
