CERTIFIED ADVANCED PRACTITIONER
Global Visiting Consultant to Como Shambhala, Kamalaya Holistic Spa & Ananda in the Himalayas
Anna Collins wanted to learn from the best in her field, and that decision took her to America, where she was taught the original ‘ten series’ by those teachers who were chosen by Dr Rolf to continue her work. Anna continues to seek out further education from these lovely souls whilst they are still happy and able to pass on their lifetime of knowledge!
Anna’s early sporty life eventually caught up with her, and various strains, aches and pains from competing at a high level of golf and tennis, plus the inevitable injuries and bruises from several winters as a ski instructor, finally took their toll. After trying, and failing, to find anything to improve matters in the UK, it was a chance encounter with Dr Rolf’s ‘10 series’ overseas that prompted a body overhaul and a career change.
Anna’s cheery disposition and healing hands have helped, amongst others: a former Prime Minister, an Olympic medallist, classical musicians, well-known actors, and many lovely souls from a plethora of industries across the world. She has also been featured in the national press. Read some of the glowing reviews here.
The Rolf Method of Structural Integration, as Dr Rolf preferred to call it, (but more commonly known as ‘Rolfing’) is designed to work cumulatively over a series of 10 unique sessions. It can be used proactively (improving your overall posture & movement efficiency) or reactively (ironing out life’s kinks, aches, and bumps to eliminate pain). Maintenance sessions are available as and when you need them.
Commitment issues? No worries! Baby steps are just fine – try one session, to see if you like it, then do a couple more. You’ll look and feel better – and be super keen to see what else is possible…
ScarWork can be taken as a stand alone session, although combining it with Structural Integration does help the body. Anna learned from the creator, who was another one of Dr Rolf's originals (her 'experiment' student!) No matter the age or reason for the scar, things can be done to soften it and make life a little easier. Whether it is the look or feel of it that bothers you, improvements can be made.
Anna also has a 'woo woo' spiritual side! She is not only trained in Reiki, but also learned a different type of energy healing whilst living in Hawaii. Whilst these treatments are not as physical as The Rolf Method, they can be just as profound for those who find a gentler style more appealing. It is also possible to have both styles together as a double appointment.
