Ana’s massage career started when she was 7 years old. She was contracted for 10 cents a minute to massage her Grandfathers shoulders and neck. She has been on the path of healing touch ever since. After graduating from massage school in 2010, Ana established her own mobile massage business, successfully treating clients spanning from the east to the west coast and internationally
Ana’s goal within her career is to become a worldwide certified Massage Educator. After her first Medical Massage class in 2011, she has since adapted the powerful healing techniques into her primary practice, making it one of her main specialties.
In 2013, after receiving extensive training at Harbin Hot Springs, the birthplace of WATSU, Ana has since added WATSU, and many other Aquatic Modalities (over 800 hours of training so far) to her list of specialties, and has become a highly well-informed educator on the subject. In 2017, after receiving more extensive training thru multiple facilities Ana added Prenatal to her specialties! She worked in a pediatrics office weekly and fully enjoyed working with the pregnant women and their infants once they came into the world. She has even assisted several births including water births, at home births, and hospital births. In 2020 after going thru an intense in-depth training Ana was able to add CLT to her name (Certified Lymphedema Therapist). Ana is always looking and taking new trainings to stay up to date with as much as she can. She also Loves learning as much as she can to be able to help more people live a better pain free life!
Ana has since become an International Educator and plans to continue expanding her list of specialties to be able to share her passion with everyone else who desires to learn in this field. She travels all over to teach and provide both a healing and anatomical massage. She now offers the fullness of her expertise thru her business Artistic Hands Massage Therapy.
When she is not massaging or teaching, you can find Ana in the water, extending her trainings further, riding her motorcycles, traveling, dancing, belly laughing, and spending quality time with her children.
