Anna Maria Mazzieri
Anna Maria is a Soft Tissue Therapist and Educator living in the South West of England where she enjoys life with her family and dog and where also her clinics and schools are based.
With 20 years of clinical experience and 15 educating new practitioners, Anna Maria feels privileged to have witnessed the growth of Soft Tissue Therapy within MSK care and having a part in shaping the process by being actively involved in the development of curriculum and introducing evidence based practice in Soft Tissue Therapy training.
Together with her colleagues and friends Matt Scarsbrook and Becky de Mott Horton, she has created The Massage Collective which, through their courses and podcast, aims to support massage therapists of all levels being comfortable with current evidence based practice.
As a practitioner Anna Maria is particularly interested in the complexities of shoulder pain and her approach to treatment sees the integration of massage and movement approaches with psychologically informed concepts where she brings in her other great interest: the use of language with people in pain.
A former player herself, now Anna Maria enjoys watching her local rugby team and despairs behind the 6 Nations performances of her beloved national Team Italy.
