My name is Anja and I am going to be your Thai Massage Therapist at the Self Love Women's Retreat and at IGNITE!
I am so excited to be a part of these retreat experiences and to offer a service that helps you to release tension and feel relaxed in your body.
Anja has been practicing bodywork since 2008, when she completed her general massage training at East-West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. She proceeded to be licensed in Oregon, Washington, California and Colorado. In 2015, Anja furthered her specialization in Thai bodywork at Spirit Winds
School of Thai Massage. Drawing from years of practicing deep tissue and myofascial release the table, she approaches her Thai treatments from a myofascial perspective, incorporating active release, targeted movement, pin-and-stretch techniques and a habit of addressing muscular attachment points into her work on the mat.
Anja loves to integrate traditional Thai herbal compresses into her bodywork, allowing the properties of the herbs and the warmth of the compresses themselves to aid in relaxing the muscles, stimulating blood flow, and fill the air with a sensory cue to relax into the treatment. She strives to create a safe, peaceful space for her clients to relax and surrender into the healing their body wishes for them to do, and many of them leave feeling joyful, rejuvenated and reconnected within their bodies.
