Anna Swahn, LMT was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona. She grew up going to a chiropractor. She was recommended by her chiropractor to see a massage therapist for her headaches and neck pain when she was a teenager. Massage therapy helped her a lot so she decided to go to Omaha School of Massage Therapy and graduated in 2007. She got her first Massage Therapist job in Fremont, NE working for a personal trainer. She then moved back to Arizona and worked for a chiropractor. That’s where she learned how to do Trigger Point Therapy. She is also certified in cupping and hot stones.
