As a qualified personal trainer, strongwoman and manual therapist, Ann has always recognised the importance of freedom in movement. From an early age, her interests have been rooted in dance, athletics, running and team sports. It was this passion for movement along with her empathic nature that led her into personal training and manual therapies. Ann’s extensive experience in the gym - working with clients both physically and psychologically to help keep them fit, healthy and motivated - has helped her build an in-depth knowledge of the human body and psyche. She brings this insight to her work as a manual therapist.
Ann’s massage journey began with Swedish Body back in 2005. She is now in the 2nd year of a Level 6 BTEC Professional Diploma in Clinical and Sports Massage with the highly acclaimed Jing Massage Institute, Brighton.
In her practice, Ann adopts a wide range of soft tissue techniques including soft tissue release, deep tissue friction, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and assisted stretching. Ann is conscious of the psychological and societal pressures and the effect they can have on our bodies. As such she is mindful of these external factors when structuring treatments and aftercare instruction.

I had a great time with Ann at The Soma Room. She was kind, a great masseuse and a great advisor when it came to my knee issues. Even just getting into the salon was relaxing. I totally recommend this place and this wonderful masseuse 🙂 I will definitely be back!M. Guillou - Google Review 45 Minute Relaxation Massage
I had a deep tissue massage with Ann and she was great. She was professional but also put me at ease and took the time to write an email to me after my session with loads of exercises designed to help me with my back and legs. The practice was also clean, modern and comfortable. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to heading back.J. Chapman - Google Review 60 Minute Deep Tissue Massage
I booked a last minute pregnancy massage with Ann at the Soma Room, after having booked a massage for my mother with Ann a few weeks prior. It was so relaxing, I nearly fell asleep, and it helped with my pregnancy aches and pains. Ann was great at ensuring I was comfortable at all times. Will definitely be returning.K.

I first tried the Soma Room after experiencing a lot of pain around my right shoulder and arms all the way to my wrist and fingers because of work. From the first visit, Ann was really attentive and helped a lot. She knew exactly where the problem areas were as if she were in my head 🙂 she knows exactly what she’s doing. Everytime I leave her, my pain is less and that lasts for a good while. I loved my experience so much that I booked a package and I will continue to visit as the deep tissue massage helped me more than any vitamins or gels I have been given by the GP since I’ve been told I’m experiencing the first stages of arthritis. I would 100% recommend Ann and the Soma Room.M. Pouryan - TripAdvisor Review 60 Minute Deep Tissue Massage
