Annie Kopko

Massage Therapist and Reflexologist

Annie's massage therapy practice began in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1979, with training in therapeutic massage, polarity therapy, Chinese medicine, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, energy methods, and herbology.  More recently she has completed training in Reiki and reflexology.  In addition to her healing work, Annie is also an Interfaith minister.


Annie specializes in massage therapy for stress relief, improving flexibility of muscles and joints, and pain relief.  Since each person comes with unique issues, she integrates various modalities into each session according to what is needed.  Annie is also available for out-calls with her massage chair, for clients who may find it difficult to travel to the office.
