I suffer from occasional flare-ups of Fibromyalgia, and it's difficult to find a good massage! Anne is able to have a light yet effective touch when necessary, and a deep, thorough massage when I can handle it! She's also provided me with different resources and advice for my condition, which is always helpful!

My whole family loves Anne! My mother, my mother-in-law, my husband, guests from out of town -- everyone who we know who needs a massage comes back raving about her wonderful sympathetic touch and calm demeanor and her thoughtful listening. It's also possible to get a massage from her at her own studio if you don't belong to the NOLA JCC. I highly recommend it!
Anne specializes in personalized messages. Before the message she tries to get an idea of what your needs are. Such as, are you having pain in a specific area, are you holding stress in your neck, shoulders, back, head? This is not done as a quick conversation on the way to the message table; she discusses it with you until all your problems are addressed. I find her easy to talk to and I love that she doesn't talk during the message unless it is to be sure that the message is as you like it. Her message room is clean, quiet and relaxing to be in. In fact, I can feel the tension building up, think it's about time for a 90 minute message right now!
Anne is a great masseuse, cares for her clientele, and obviously loves her job. My wife and I have been loyal clients for about a year. It is worth noting that Anne will give you the massage you want. I can attest that Anne gives a deep tissue massage like few others. My wife, on the other hand, tells me she also gives a wonderfully relaxing massage as well-- we have never agreed on a massage therapist before. I really could go on and on, but hopefully you get the point.
I have gotten a weekly massages from Anne for several years. She is a lovely person, calm, smart, and funny. She gives me the entire time allotted to me and sometimes more because she'll continue to work on a particular spot that seems tense. I find her massages one of the best that I have had and I have had them from several people in private practice here in the city, as well as spas in New Orleans and around the world. You will definate like the massage from Anne. I recommend her whole hardedly!
Anne gives wonderful massages. I've been a client of hers for 3 years. She adjusts the firmness to my needs and really cares about my health. She's great at working with my schedule. I have some serious health problems and she changes the massage for what I need and can handle on each particular day instead of giving a "stock" massage.
