Welcome! Along with fresh air, plenty of sleep, and exercise; massage is yet another way that you can positively impact your health and general well being.   

Perhaps you work in the medical field, are a busy parent, spend your days or nights in the service industry, or a body worker/tattoo artist/construction worker yourself?  Massage is a perfect way to address alignment issues we encounter from being on our feet and using our bodies all day and the aches and pains that ofen come with it.

Perhaps you sit at a desk each day at work, commute long hours, or hunch over your creative endeavors all day--but play hard after work in a spinning class, rock climb, run, or hike?  Massage can be a powerful tool for creating more ease in movement and decrease the occurance of injury. 

No matter the reason for coming to my massage table, I will always strive to truly listen to your needs.  I believe in the body's innate ability to heal itself--so it's my job to help ease stress, unkink tight muscles, and unwind your nerves to help make that healing possible.  Let's work together to help you be as comfortable, present, and joyful in your body as possible!


Come and practice the self care that our bodies so deeply crave!  Anchor Massage Therapy offers a comfortable waiting area, and an inviting treatment room for you to unwind in, and you can even attend a yoga class at True North Yoga and Wellness when you're done! I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

by Steve on Feb 12
For my first time working with Anne Marie, she made me feel very comfortable which made it easy to relax. I'll definitely return.

Anna is a wonderful therapist. I am a MT as well and it is clear that she is very versed in her anatomy knowledge. She used a variety of tools and heat packs as well which were very helpful for unwinding my tight back. Her skill is gentle, intuitive, and effective. She brings a very positive and loving attitude to the table. Highly recommend!

Always friendly staff, very professional and genuinely concerned about clients.

Anna Marie is amazing! I started going to her for prenatal massages and have since continued getting massages from her. She has an in-depth knowledge of anatomy that allows her to truly target problem spots, and she uses a variety of techniques to tailor every massage to what I need that visit. After my massage I always feel less tense, more relaxed, and with an overall feeling of balance. Don't hesitate to go see her!

Anna Marie is the most professional! Hands down the best therapeutic massage in Richmond.

This was my first experience at Anchor, but I have seen Anna Marie before. She is a great listener who shares her knowledge, talent, and time generously. She's very interested in overall health and comfort. I'd asked for help with recovery from an injury and she offered and demonstrated exercise ideas to promote healing between massage appointments. Her skills and professionalism define her practice, but her open attitude and friendly manner keep me going back.
