She had a successful professional dance career in America for over 10 years. This background in dance enhances her understanding of movement dynamics in relation to musculoskeletal issues and body energetic.

She recently moved with her family into Shokan, NY where she continues in serving people to find and restore their health and balance.

 

Her ultimate goal is: Harmony and Union between Mind-Body-Spirit.

From my very first visit, I felt a dramatic improvement in my back pain. Dr. Anna allayed any concerns and fears I had while explaining the underlying principals of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and how it works. She was also completely open and honest, making sure that I did not expect the overnight elimination of my problems. As she explained it, by following her lifestyle recommendations and receiving regular treatment, over time I would achieve the results I sought. Since treatments are usually extremely relaxing and rejuvenating, it wasn’t a hard sell.
I am happy to report that my condition is dramatically improved, and my life significantly better, because of her treatments. - Thomas Macaluso.
I’ve know Dr. Anna since 2012. I can certify that Dr. Anna is the ‘real deal’ -- a gifted healer and a caring individual.
I have recommended many people to her for treatment, and without exception, they have been charmed by her demeanor and her desire to help them. I have at least one client who has thanked me for ‘saving his life’, courtesy of my referral.
I also have experienced her treatments first hand, and benefitted immensely from them. In 2013, I developed an abscess on my back, which appeared seemingly out of nowhere, and grew at a rapid pace. Before seeking ‘harsher’ treatment, I asked Anna if she could help me. She needled the area, and also prescribed a poltice of natural but powerful ingredients, which I applied every day. Within a few days the abscess was visibly smaller, and within 2 weeks – as if by magic – had completed disappeared. Obviously, it wasn’t magic: it was the healing powers of my own body, assisted by Dr. Anna’s knowledge and skill. - Janet Marquardt, LMT
