Our Team



Annie is the owner and matriarch of the Cottage! She established the Cottage in 2004.

She loves finding out what people’s true needs are, so they can have the best level of healing and the best experience for them.
She is warm, helping, caring and funny.

She has nearly 20 years experience as a massage therapist, but has branched out into many other areas of metaphysical healing, including becoming a Reiki Master Teacher who facilitates Reiki 1, 2 & Masters workshops which are run from the Cottage, and she is happy to do one on one or couples workshops for a more personalized experience.

She is also a RAW (Rekindled Ancient Wisdom) practitioner. RAW is a form of energetic healing that uses kinesiology (both written and spoken) to work through many levels of blocked energy, from past life, inner child, parent gene, ego, physical body, etc.

Call and have a chat with her today about the unique qualities and skills that the Cottage’s therapists have, to help in choosing the modality for YOUR highest good.

Annie is facilitating Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 Attunement workshops in March and April 2018 - check our Workshops page for details.
