She believes in giving clients the skills for on-going self care.

Annie understands that not all injuries have a quick fix, that many need ongoing care and maintenance, sometimes for life. She encouragingly advises this does not need to be a chore, but can be fun, with clinical pilates and yoga being fantastic mediums for achieving physical and emotional wellness.
