As you step inside the door at 1097 Bank Street the first thing you notice are the beautiful images of women and babies, the casts of women’s bodies and the inspirational quotes, all designed to honour women. Anna Bélanger & Associates is a massage therapy clinic dedicated to women of all ages and stages of life and the relaxing atmosphere they’ve created is immediately calming.
Anna, a mother of four, a registered massage therapist, a birth and post-natal doula, a teacher in the massage therapy program at Algonquin and a childbirth educator, has dedicated herself to creating a space especially for women. Her passion for making women feel special, beautiful and well cared for has made her well-loved by her clients, and an amazing mentor to the therapists that work with her.
“We understand women,” says Anna. “Whether during pregnancy or menopause or other life challenges, we are here to create a warm and welcoming space and to help with the physical and emotional effects women’s bodies go through.”
Anna’s dedication was honoured this Fall when she was named one of the top four finalists of the Dove Celebrate Mom Role Models in Canada.
“Anna’s ability to understand what I needed made my first massage in her clinic by far the most relaxing one I’d ever had,” says client and friend Lara Wellman. “Her ability to put women at ease and to make them feel comfortable and beautiful is a talent few possess. It is one of the many reasons I nominated her for the Dove award.”
As a practice devoted to women, the therapists at Anna Bélanger & Associates understand women, and understand that a massage experience needs to be different for everyone.
