Prolong your career
These workshops give the practitioner new tools that are more effective, expend less energy and are fun to do! What a delight. Time spent on the table, experiencing and benefitting from the work, deepens the learning and is very restorative for the practitioner's well-being. All of this makes for a more happy, effective facilitator of another's healing process, and that pays big dividends. Statistics report that, on average, those who work in this field continue only 5-6 years. Ann has had a private practice since 1984 and has been able to help thousands of people, as clients, students and colleagues. She attributes her continued sense of joy, fulfillment and longevity to the ease and effectiveness of this way of working WITH the body.

Ann loves sharing this work because it has provided tremendous help to everyone she has worked with since 1987. Thousands of people have benefited. Clients who travel have even told their massage therapists away from home how to get the release they're struggling with based on what they learned receiving the work. Clients who have taken classes say they enjoy helping family and friends and that they are more self-aware. Working WITH the body's inborn self-healing, self-correcting design makes sense and it works so well.
