Ana’s passion for practicing massage therapy was born from her encounters with the Maori healers of New Zealand. The physical body talks to each one of us through pain, discomfort, and disease. Ana reads and listens to the body translating its message into words. Using deep tissue bodywork, she releases the trapped emotions that cause pain and restores the body’s energy flow. The Maori massage is recommended to all; particularly those of us in chronic pain, the ones going through emotional stress, old emotional trauma, and the unloading of everyday-life “gunk.” As a Reiki practitioner, Ana offers one-on-one healing sessions; however, if you are not in the Knoxville area, you may schedule a distance healing session. She also offers interdimensional healing for those loved ones who have passed away.

Ana was born and raised in Brazil, where she graduated vet school at the age of 22. She moved to Fort Collins, CO, to attend graduate school. Her plans of going back to Brazil to be a professor changed when she met her husband. Ana had been doing research in the Clinical Sciences department of the Colorado State University. With what she learned during her MS training, Ana has been teaching ultrasound to veterinarians and technicians since 1999. She moved to Knoxville, TN, in 2004. "It was love at first sight! When I first arrived in Knoxville, I felt right at home..."

In 2008, Ana met the Maori Healers - "I was only there to hold the energy and give support to those receiving the bodywork," she said, "but it became much more than that!"

Many encounters and two years later, Ana had a massage license and started her Maori Healing practice. She continued to learn from the Maori people, living in Auckland, New Zealand, for 6 months in 2011. Ana was a participant in the first Te Rongopae retreat in 2014 and has continually supported the Maori Healers in their mission. She has hosted the Maori Healers in Knoxville and has been given permission by the Maori Healers to teach Maori Healing techniques in the United States.
