|About||Incredible value massage therapies designed to revive, restore and renew. Call now to book an appointment at my Southampton, home-based treatment room.|
My name is Annalise. Welcome to Anew Therapies - a venture that 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 neck and finally a broken shoulder.
The excellent sports therapist at dance college worked on the knots and scar tissue build-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 with speciality in Swedish, 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 am delighted to offer a professional, personable and local service to help all kinds of people feel better and love their bodies again.
