Shiatsu – Japanese body work – is an effective therapy, working on both – Body and Mind. Gentle pressure, stretches and rotations helps relax body and release tension and held emotions. Shiatsu is working on sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Deep relaxation and unblocking the energy and blood flow improve body ability to heal itself. Shiatsu is also a great physical therapy, very effective in treating sport injuries, sciatica, spinal issues and all kind of muscles and joints problems. Anna is often using other techniques alongside with Shiatsu:
Sotai – Japanese muscle mobilisation technique – to improve body alignment and mobility.
Chinese cupping – to improve blood circulation, boost immune system and relax tight muscles
Moxibustion to reduce pains and aches and bring warmth and heat into the body
Anna is particularly interested in women’s health, especially endocrine problems and related issues. She is successfully helping women in all ages dealing with physical and mental problems: chronic pain, stress, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune diseases to name just a few.
While working with women in all ages she found out, that they all (including herself) wish not only to be and feel healthy but also to have a healthy, glowing look. After some research and try-outs of varied skin treatments she discovered the one that combines both – health and beauty benefits – Zone Face Lift Bergman Method. Ziggie Bergman, creator of ZFL, is popular and successful therapist and teacher based in London. In 2017 Anna has successfully completed all the modules and became certified Zone Face Lift practitioner. Anna has also recently completed Facial Cupping training with Ziggie Bergman.
In 2019 Anna has completed training with Niamh Hogan, CEO of Irish brand ‘HOLOS Skin Care from Nature’, and became certified HOLOS facialist.
