About Anne

Anne Medrano is a PA Licensed and Nationally Board Certified Massage Therapist, who focuses on treating people with compassion, presence and heart-centered awareness. Using Myofascial Release, CranioSacral Therapy, Reiki, medicinal grade essential oils and traditional therapeutic techniques, Anne offers an experience that goes far beyond a relaxation massage. She has a unique gift of listening to what the body 'speaks', and works with people of all ages and backgrounds.

Anne has benefited greatly from working in a number of clinical settings such as an orthopedic Physical Therapy practice and Chiropractic Wellness Centers. She is adept at addressing a number of issues from sports injuries, joint issues, rotator cuff impairments, pre and post surgical recovery, scar tissue release, tendonitis, acute and chronic pain, migraines, headaches, TMJ, anxiety, depression, fatigue, to name a few.

Anne first experienced the many benefits of massage therapy in 1998 after receiving treatment for a sports injury. Her positive experience led to a successful recovery and a keen interest in the healing arts. Over time, it became clear that healing and recovery is not just a physical experience, and that acute injury is rarely a simple, localized event. Trauma happens on many levels, and in various forms throughout the life experience. Our bodies hold these traumas and continue to experience them in the most profound ways. Anne addresses issues with this in mind, allowing each individual the opportunity to receive what is most needed, facilitating a return to wellness, allowing for the innate wisdom of the body to shine and heal. 

Anne has been practicing massage exclusively since 2007, and is deeply grateful to be to be in such a dynamic field. She considers therapeutic massage and bodywork an essential part of a balanced, holistic approach to health and wellness.

Anne is a proud graduate of the Massage Arts Center of Philadelphia, has completed coursework with the Upledger Institute in CranioSacral Therapy, John Barnes, PT in Myofascial Release, Medicinal Aromatherapy with Wisdom of the Earth Essential Oils, and is a certified Level II Reiki practitioner. She has a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from Philadelphia University. 

When not practicing massage, Anne is a very happy full time mom, and enjoys a number of outdoor activities.
