Anam Cara, an old Irish term, means soul friend. When you have an anam cara, you are accepted and understood unconditionally, there is a deep sense of belonging and recognition, and you feel at home. That’s how we want our clients to feel when they visit us at Anam Cara Wellness. We are conveniently located in the heart of the quaint town of Vienna, just one mile from the Vienna Metro Station in Fairfax County, Virginia. We are less than a 10 minute drive from Tyson's Corner, on Route 123 which becomes Maple Avenue when you enter Vienna. Since opening in 2006, our clients have come from all over the Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC area to be pampered, healed and balanced with the best massage therapy in the area. Our location is only minutes from Reston, Herndon, McLean, Oakton, Falls Church and Centreville VA.
Ann Schachinger, facilitator of Anam Cara Wellness, LCMT, Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Reflexologist, Belavi Facelift Massage Specialist, and manual Lymph Therapist has developed her own “signature” massage session. Ann has given many treatments combining massage with Reiki to enhance her client's release of physical and emotional stress. As a massage therapist, her rhythmic technique has been highly praised by clients and fellow massage therapists for its effectiveness in opening energy channels and inducing deep relaxation while experiencing therapeutic massage.
Ann also specializes in deep tissue massage and trigger point release of the shoulders, back and neck, as well as manual lymph drainage therapy. Stress, sitting in traffic, weight lifting, repetitive movements and fibromyalgia are all contributors of tight muscles and active trigger points in the shoulders and neck area.
Using these techniques can assist in releasing the restrictions in the muscles that cause pain and stiffness. It is of the highest importance to Ann that her client's receive a personalized, caring and healing session.
To make an appointment with Ann, please email her at Annie@AnamCaraWellness.com.
Please note: Annie’s schedule is currently booked through May. Annie will be taking new clients for massage therapy in June, 2013. Striving to give the best therapeutic and healing sessions to all of her clients, it is important to her that the time spent with each of them is of the highest quality. To schedule ahead for June, please feel free to send an email to Annie@AnamCaraWellness.com.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a system of Enlightenment and a Hands on Healing art developed in the early 1900's by Mikao Usui in Japan. It is an art that is passed from Master to student. The word Reiki comes from two Japanese words - Rei and Ki, meaning Universal Life Force Energy. The term "Reiki" is used to describe both the energy and the Usui system of using it.
A standard treatment includes placing the hands on various areas of the body, such as the head, shoulders, stomach, knees and feet. People's experiences vary during a Reiki session; however, most people feel the energy as heat. They may feel tingling, vibrating or waves of energy from the hands of the practitioner.
As the Reiki energy begins to release blocks caused by
tension, anxiety, fear, or other negative thoughts and feelings, some
people drift off to sleep or enter into a light dreamlike state. Some
see colors, report spiritual experiences and mystical visions.

Chakra Balancing is a procedure that increases the healthy flow of energy through the chakras and the entire energy field. A balanced flow of energy through the aura creates greater physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Childhood traumas, limited belief systems, bad habits, cultural conditioning, physical, and emotional injuries can contribute to chakra blockage. Life is full of challenges and for each challenge there is a coping strategy.
In a Chakra Balancing session, Marty will:
A session typically lasts an hour. You will leave renewed, energized, refreshed, and relaxed. If you are feeling ungrounded or light-headed, having trouble concentrating or communicating, feeling unusually hyper or fatigued, your chakras may be out of balance.

This modality combines focused breathing with light touch and healing mantras to create positive energy shifts in the emotional, mental, and physical body.

Hypnotherapy and Regression Therapy are forms of energy work, in that they work with subconscious mental or emotional energy patterns or vibrations. Through deep physical and mental relaxation, the conscious mind becomes an observer as you access the light of your higher self. Your deep inner healer guides you in discovering and releasing the subconscious causes of underlying patterns or limitations that have been causing adverse circumstances in your life. Guided imagery and positive suggestion help you clear the inappropriate patterns (or energy blocks) that have been hampering your life. In the case of Regression Therapy, the subconscious energy blocks have resulted from one or more traumatic events in the past, which are brought forward and released during the session.
Self-hypnosis instruction is available for pain control, reinforcing desired behaviors, stress management, and as a preparation for surgery.
For a hypnotherapy appointment, please contact Marybeth Spain by phone: 703-298-2692 (cell) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“I've been going to Anam Cara for years and would not think about going anywhere else! Annie and her team are awesome! Everyone is very professional and they really care about you! Your session is customized to how you are feeling that day. If you haven't tried reflexology or Reiki, I'l highly recommend it that!
I have arthritis in my knees and after my session, I feel like I'm 20 again. The massages are amazing too!
“Do you want to take a trip to a pleasant, far away place and never leave Vienna? Annie's abilities as a holistic body therapist will cause you to leave this place behind and find yourself on a tropical island, a library, or whatever place you feel safe, relaxed and refreshed. I cannot adequately utilize words to convey the healing and rejuvenation you will experience during a session with Annie. You WILL return over and over again to Annie for a refreshing and relaxing therapeutic session.” --J. Kell, January 2008
“My experience at Anam Cara was amazing. I honestly left feeling rejuvenated – like I was on Cloud 9! I look forward to more Reiki and reflexology treatments. I have also had some great results from the Forever Living products that were recommended to me. Thank you!” --J. Briggs
“The lyrical precision of Annie's integrated massage felt as though my body was tuned up at the deepest cellular level." --L. Bergman
“When Annie gave me a massage with Reiki, I was so relaxed afterwards that I felt like a completely renewed person. I also felt the warmth of energy swirling throughout my body. She is an amazing person as well as practitioner." --M. Payne
“I highly recommend Anam Cara Wellness Services to anyone who wants to spend some time being pampered in a relaxed, elegant atmosphere. Both Kathryn & Annie are true professionals who are passionate about their work and truly believe in helping people take care of themselves.

"At the age of 29, I was suffering with chronic
pain and fatigue. There were days it was a chore to get dressed or
take a shower. Polarity treatment saved my life. I was taking a regiment
of drugs but I wasn't getting better. It wasn't until I began Polarity
treatment that I began to reclaim my life and get my body back. Those
sessions were the highlight of my week and nothing would prevent me
from making my appointment. During the sessions, I was able to escape
to a place without pain and dream of a life where I no longer winced
when I put my shoes on. My once broken body is fully healed and I
attribute my recovery to Maggie's love and the Polarity treatment.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this therapy!"
