Anne’s interest in massage therapy began as a child. She was born with a congenital neck condition, which required her to have surgery at 10 months old. Anne began receiving massage therapy when she was about 11 to manage both that condition and her functional scoliosis. She began going along to her mom’s massage treatments and taking notes.
Anne graduated from Ryerson University in 2009 and the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2014. She has taken continuing education in breathing, myo-fascial, and relaxation techniques, core and pelvic floor dysfunction, therapy for runners, and much more.
Anne has been a dedicated fitness and yoga professional since 2009, teaching corporate, online (YOGO.tv), private and public fitness and yoga classes all over B.C. Thus, her specific interest is empowering clients to be able to help themselves as much as possible and live their best lives.
Anne’s treatments focus on myo-fascial release, trigger point release, and therapeutic exercise and stretching. She always communicates and works within a patient’s pain tolerance. Anne is a self-proclaimed anatomy nerd and teaches the anatomy portion of yoga teacher training at Vayusha Yoga, where she also teaches therapy-based yoga workshops.
Anne enjoys writing about fitness and wellness on her blog - https://www.annejones.ca/blog - and for various fitness and health publications. She lives in Cloverdale with her husband, her daughter, and their tiny mutt, Kenzie.
