About Anita

Anita is a Registered Nurse, Certified Personal Trainer, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Pfrimmer® Deep Muscle Therapist.  She is a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA), the American Massage Therapy Association® (AMTA), and served on the board of the Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy Association's PA Chapter.  

Anita's original career path was in the corporate world, where she worked as an office manager for the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh offices of a Fortune 100 software company.  After five years, she took Family Medical Leave to care for a sick relative and was inspired to switch career paths to the health & fitness industry.

After sustaining a neck injury and finding relief only through Myofascial Release, Anita attended the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy and graduated in 2003.  Since then, she has received advanced training in Aviana Life Touch® Therapy, Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD®), Myofascial Release, and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy®.  

Anita felt a calling to nursing many years prior to entering the field.  She became a registered nurse in 2014, and graduated with distinction from Eastern University in 2016, where she earned her bachelor of science degree in nursing.  As a Nurse Massage Therapist she has a unique perspective of healing which includes complementary and allopathic medicine.  

Anita uses her education, years of experience, intuition, and unique style of corrective bodywork to help her clients regain and maintain health and well-being.
