I have been working with Ania for over a year now and can confidently say that my time and money are well spent. 

Ania has taken great care to learn my body and understand my goals, is the right mix of encouraging and patient as we do the work, and is clearly very knowledgeable in her field. I now have less discomfort, more strength and better alignment than before. I would recommend her to anyone (though especially women) looking to restore or enhance their health.
