She’s very patient and good about privacy. Very vocal and was good about letting me know what to expect.
by Mary on Jun 19
Anna is a conscientious, skilled, & intuitive practitioner. She is the primary reason I can maintain a normal work and social life by managing & relieving my nerve & arthritic back/hip pain. I don't know how I would work without her care.
by JoAnne on Jun 14
It’s very hard to put into words what she did to relieve the pain I have and my shoulder. I like it that if one thing doesn’t work she has so many options and she tried a lot of them and when I left I felt much much better.
by Renee on Jun 14
I appreciate everything about Anna's style and approach in expertly addressing what my body needs and addressing it with her incredible wisdom and intuitive trust. I'm so joyfully grateful for you, Anna!

Annebritt is the most skilled therapist that I have ever used. She pays attention to specific issues. I feel like every time I leave a therapy session I have learned something new. I feel like Annebritt does her research on how to resolve my issues.
by Cassia on Apr 04
Anna is the best massage therapist I have ever worked with, period. Highly recommended!
by Mary on Apr 03
She uses multiple modalities ...cups, massage, and a heated a heated neck pillow, and more...to free my body from its imbalances.
by Jay on Mar 31
Annebritt was a consummate professional, quickly understood my needs and addressed them without a misstep. Most effective therapeutic massage I have received since moving to North Carolina. She is amazing!
by Aretha on Mar 25
Her work speaks for itself.. This is the best that I have felt in years..
by Donna on Feb 11
Annebritt has helped me tremendously with my SI joint dysfunction, hip pain, and forward posture resulting from years of wearing heels and standing on my feet. She uses many different techniques and methods which are all very effective. I cannot say enough wonderful comments about Annebritt!

Overall good massage. Johnny is a nice guy and has a great technique. Communicates well.
by Sallie on Jul 14
Johnny was attentive, professional and knowledgeable. I came in feeling battered and fatigued after a long weekend tournament, and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. I'll be booking with him again soon!
by Lynn on Jun 16
Johnny helped release my tight hips and calves - I was like a new woman when I got off the table. He's very knowledgable and tuned in - exactly what I needed today!
by Carrie on Jun 13

Five stars does not give enough room to rate Anna's skill in unlocking tight muscles, alleviating pain and restoring a balanced state. Working with her is a huge part of my fitness equation. Plus she works in full PPE for both my safety and hers. Highly recommend!

The massage I received from Annebritt was very thorough. She took time to explain the process completely and address all my questions and concerns. After my massage I had a greater range of motion with less discomfort. I have already scheduled a follow-up appointment.
