After years of engagement in social work, counseling and raising a family, Annette started her career in the Healing Arts as a Reflexologist and avid Yoga Practitioner.
Later she became interested in the holistic approach of Traditional Thai Massage and received her initial certification through The Canadian School of Traditional Thai Therapy in Calgary. She subsequently trained with Lotus Palm, Montreal and Spirit Winds, California.
In the summer of 2009 Annette attended the THAI Retreat & Conference in Croatia, where Thai therapists from all corners of the world met to practice together and learn from each other.
Annette’s travels have taken her to various countries in Asia, where she sought to connect with local massage practitioners to experience different traditional approaches to massage.
In Chiang Mai, Thailand, she studied under renowned Master Ajahn Pichest Boonthumme.
Annette practices Traditional Thai Massage with the intention to aid and stimulate the recipient’s intrinsic healing powers on the physiological and energetic level of body and mind. Recipient and practitioner are partners during this process, each contributing to the individual outcome of a session.

Annette is a gifted healer who finds space within the body and infuses it with light. Her intuitive responses reflect a deep understanding of the body, and nurturing of the spirit.
Having tried several types of massage therapy over the years, I plan on working with Annette well into the future. Highly skilled, she has helped me with my mobility, flexibility, and giving me some great advice for what I can do at home & in life to improve myself. I can’t recommend Annette enough!
