Registered Massage Therapist

Diploma in Massage Therapy
Bachelor of Arts Degree


Anna received her Bachelor of Arts degree with honours from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec in 2002 before becoming an honours graduate of the Massage Therapy Program at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton, Alberta in 2008.  Anna has since completed several additional courses in cranial sacral therapy, neurological inhibition and nerve mobilization. 

Anna was delighted to discover that a strong francophone community exists in the Waverley area and is always keen to use her French language skills with her francophone clients.


Having explored careers in publishing and teaching, Anna’s earlier interest in the profession of massage therapy was rekindled with travels abroad that afforded exposure to Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese massage. Since then, Anna hasn’t looked back and has enjoyed working as a massage therapist in chiropractic, physiotherapy and private clinics in Edmonton, Halifax and Rothesay. In January, 2013 Anna moved to Dartmouth to accept the opportunity to practice at the Waverley Road Physiotherapy and Health Care Centre
