Anna is the driving force behind Massage Me and the School is her latest project. Having run Massage Me for 12 years, whilst living and raising a family in the Alps, she is definitely passionate about both the massage and alpine hospitality industry. 

At Massage Me, we’ve always been proud to be driven by our dedication to exceeding our clients expectations. I’ve realised over the years of managing a team of therapists, that you will only have happy, satisfied clients if your therapists are happy and confident in what they are doing. 

Opening the school is a way for us to contribute towards increasing the skill level amongst those motivated to learn and improve themselves
