Hi, I’m Annie Halton Marshall, LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) and a lifelong resident of Ithaca, NY. I have been been nurturing individuals and families in this community for over 40 years and I am now furthering this passion for healing through massage therapy.
I’m a 2015 graduate of Finger Lakes School of Massage. I typically use 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 my clients. I have received extensive training in prenatal massage and pediatric massage because every person, in every stage of life, can be helped with massage therapy. I truly believe that every individual comes to the massage table with a unique way of experiencing their body and the world and I work to compassionately adjust my sessions according to the physical and emotional needs of each client. I happily welcome individuals of every age and gender with open arms.
I previously owned and operated TLC Child Care Center for 15 years, which drives some of my passion for pediatric massage therapy. I bring many years of experience as a care provider to the work of massage and I feel that my career as a massage therapist is informed in many positive ways by my lifelong commitment to children and families.
I expanded my commitment to pediatric and prenatal well-being by becoming a DONA certified birth and postpartum Doula in 2004, but I have since focused just on my massage techniques for each specialized category of individual, in all stages of life.
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 in children.
Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and or swelling.
