Annie Allen, BA, LMT, CMLDT, CMBPR, CYT, CCEOLC, Reiki Master

Annie Allen has been a body worker for 25 years. She has practiced and taught meditation, massage therapy and yoga in New York City, St. Louis, and Salt Lake City, before returning to Buffalo to raise a family. She developed her therapeutic style through a desire to release tension and trauma from her own body in order to be a clearer channel of authentic and present centered awareness for her massage patients and yoga students.
Her education is broad, she holds a BA in Education from St. Mary's College at Notre Dame and attended the Swedish Institute, College of Health Science. She studied under meditation master Swami Chidvilasananda, and hatha yoga with many world renowned teachers. A Reiki Master since 1996, Annie holds many certifications in mind body approaches to health and healing including Craniosacral Therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Pre-Post Natal Yoga, Contemplative End of Life Care and Mindfulness for Chronic Pain Relief. She worked for years with Hospice Buffalo as a full time massage therapist.
Besides her private body work practice and yoga teaching schedule she also works with health care providers in the hospital setting doing mindfulness training for self care. Over the years Annie has come to understand this: a simple commitment to self care is essential. A natural byproduct of regular self care is radiant health, mental clarity and joyful living born out of skillful action.
