I’m passionate about the positive effects of therapy on the body and mind with a mission to support individuals seeking to achieve life balance through personal wellness.
The manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being.
Therapeutic touch promotes physiological, neurological and psychological development and function.
Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
Annie Halton Marshall, LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) is a lifelong resident of Ithaca, NY who has been nurturing individuals and families in this community for over 40 years. She is now furthering this passion for healing through massage therapy.
Annie is a 2015 graduate of Finger Lakes School of Massage. She typically uses a deeply relaxing style of Swedish massage, along with elements of Shiatsu and Energy work to gently facilitate an experience of whole-body healing for each one of her clients. Annie also has further training in prenatal massage and pediatric massage. Annie believes that every individual comes to the massage table with a unique way of experiencing their body and the world and she works to compassionately adjust her sessions according to the physical and emotional needs of each client. She gladly welcomes individuals of every age and gender.
Annie previously owned and operated TLC Child Care Center for 15 years. A loving and nurturing nursery school program. She brings many years of experience as a care provider to the work of massage.
