Years ago I recall going to the folk Fest and listening to folk singer and songwriter Annie English. Her solid voice and songwriting style made me want to listen more. Her voice and strong will was like a bright light. Annie English has taken that bright light and turned it into healing and today, Tucson Biz Beat salutes Annie English and her business East Meets West.
Annie always felt music was healing and took that healing mentality that she so strongly holds and went to school and earned a degree is massage therapy, earned her Master’s in Acupuncture and became certified in a variety of integrative healing modalities.
She believes that an integrative approach to healing is the best way to heal the mind-body and spirit. Annie says she “listens and follows” what the body is saying. Often with traditional healing, we do not pay attention the body as a whole. Whether it is her music background, or her strong intuition, she is able to help facilitate healing by listening to the language of the body.
The modalities that English uses include massage, energy work, acupressure, cranial sacral, Reiki, and listening to the body. These expert modalities helps her heal issues such as addictions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, PTSD, anxiety and depression, plus much more. Annie spends a few days a week at Sierra of Tucson outside her private practice to help people there.
Annie’s 22 years experience makes her an expert at what she does and people who have been helped by her have no problem singing her praise. Speaking of singing, she believes that music is a huge healing tool and said, “The voice is one of the best healing instruments there is.” She has no qualms about integrating music as part of her healing practices.
Annie states that part of her job is to find out where the “energy blockage is and restoring it.” With passion in her voice she says, “This is teaching people to feel with the heart as opposed to the head.” This attitude has helped English heal many local Tucsonans and assist them in their life with not only walking an improved path, but also walking it with ease and comfort.
If you are like me, you may have heard the name Annie English and related it to the Tucson music folk scene, but Annie English is far more than a musician, she is an experienced integrative healer and works full time in helping people restore themselves back to balance.
If you live in the Tucson Arizona area, by all means, drop her a line at Annie@eastmeetswesttherapies.com and see what all the talk is about. Restoring a person back to their natural balance is a number one hit for Annie English.
