Massage Therapy is both a Profession and a Personal Passion for Annalise
Welcome my name is Annalise Jannetta I am quite new at You Massage Therapy, Southampton and would like to introduce myself and share a small part of my story – Massage Therapy is both my profession and my personal passion.
I enjoyed hours of dance classes as a child progressing to 3 years of professional training at Dance College in London. During my training I acquired injuries – broken toes, achilleic tendonitis, torn hamstring, Meniscus Knee, a slipped disk, torn ligaments in my lower back, trapped nerves in my neck and finally a broken shoulder….
The excellent sports therapist at Dance College worked on the knots and scar tissue built-up that caused me constant discomfort. The treatment itself was painful rather than relaxing, but the release and increased movement I had after each session was incredible.
This started my own journey as therapist. After graduating from Dance College, I qualified as a fitness instructor and personal trainer, specialising in Swedish, Pregnancy, Sports and Deep Tissue massage. I began to work with private clients.
A few years later, during both my pregnancies, I also received treatment for lower back and hip pain, and sciatica. These hours of massage were a relief for my pregnant body; so, expectant mamas, I know how you feel!
As well as my own experiences, my daughter also suffers with Fibromyalgia so I have learnt a lot about the nervous system and how massage can ease chronic pain.
I have worked as a therapist since 2001 both here in the U.K. and in the U.S. where I lived for thirteen years. I found You Massage Therapy, Southampton and am now self-employed here. It’s a wonderful place to be a part of!
Recently I have trained in Hot Stone, Lymphatic Drainage, Skin/Facials, Indian Head Massage and Reflexology. You can find out more about some of these in some earlier blogs: How can Lymphatic Drainage can improve your Health? Hot Stones Massage and Reflexology. I love learning new things and will continue to learn more.
I hope to meet you and help you feel renewed and refreshed!
The body is an amazing thing and we don’t realise how much stress and pain we carry every day. Look after yourself you deserve it.
