My name is Anastasia Brencick and I have been a massage therapist here in Washington state since 1996. I enjoy it so much and can’t imagine doing anything else! I received my training at Seattle Massage School in Seattle with my focus in mind/body integration.
I received a bachelor’s degree in social work and studied in Mexico and Central America . I spent 10 years in the domestic violence field, offering advocacy to women and children, leading support groups for lesbian/bi/questioning women in violent relationships and became an educational coordinator for new employees and volunteers at a confidential domestic violence shelter.
As a massage therapist, I have worked in a chiropractic office, integrative clinic, a health center and now in my own private practice here on Whidbey island. I have a background in treatment focused medical massage. I have been so enamored with the opening and unfolding that often accompanies a good bodywork session for folks, that I got my Masters degree at Lesley University in 2008 in an independent study integrating applied psychophysiology and massage.
I have certifications in Thai massage and pre and postnatal massage.
I have been enjoying barefoot running in the woods these days, surfing when I can, and singing at the top of my lungs with my mini-Dachshund, Ruby.
