Anna Schachinger, Certified Massage Therapist, Reiki Master, Reflexology, Belavi Facelift Massage, Manual Lymph Therapy, Chakra Balancing
Annie 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. Annie 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.
Annie 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 Annie that her clients receive a personalized, caring and healing session.

Annie will not be taking new clients until January 2020. 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 January, please feel free to send an email to Annie@AnamCaraWellness.com.

Anam Cara welcomes Robyn Wolf to our center!
"I love my work. As a psychic & evidential medium, I am able to help people every single day. To me, there is nothing better than connecting you with your loved ones in the spirit world or sharing guidance for assistance when you have specific questions about your life path."
Robyn began seeing spirit at two years of age and as a child, thought this was just a normal occurrence. As this was her norm, Robyn later learned that she was born a medium when she began going to The Journey Within in New Jersey. Being blessed with this gift, she soon began receiving spiritual training with renowned International Mediums. Robyn has been practicing as a psychic & evidential medium for 10+ years and currently teaches both psychic and mediumship development workshops and gives evidential mediumship readings to clients worldwide. Currently, she is working towards being ordained as a Spiritualist Minister. Robyn has also spent years working with Reiki and is a certified Reiki Master as well as studying and working with the Universal language of the Tarot and offers both to her clients upon request.
"It is an honor to be able to connect you to the higher side of life. Life is continuous. Those on the other side are just waiting for me to paint them back to life. My spirit in my body connects with a spirt that no longer has a physical body. I ask those in the spirit world to communicate evidential facts that will validate the continuity of life. My intention is to work with those in the spirit world, asking for as much validation as possible, so that it will leave no doubt in your mind that your loved one, or loved ones, have communicated with you in the spirit world.

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.
To set up a Reiki appointment with one of our practitioners, please:
Chakra Clearing and Balancing can be a very effective modality to bring peace and balance to the mind, body and spirit. Chakras are spinning wheels of life force energy (chi) centers within the body that can become stagnant and dysfunctional due to stress and environmental factors. Lorna uses energy work to clear, open, balance and enhance the flow of chi in your chakra system. When our chakras are balanced, we feel and look refreshed, renewed, and relaxed.
“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

“Thank-you so very much for the most enjoyable and relaxing treatment I’ve had in a great while. Your heart comes out through your touch, and gentleness in your hands.” --Angela A., November 2005
