Ana Calderon, LMT

Ana

Ana received her education at COCC by completing their associates program in Massage Therapy.

Her interest in body work started while she was in high school at the start of her journey of self-development through athletics. Her interest in body mechanics was sparked and she has never ceased to be fascinated by the body's ability to change, adapt, and improve. Shortly after high school, Ana’s first-hand acquaintance with massage started when she experienced the amazing benefits and change that can happen within the body through massage. She then chose to focus her studies on the body and massage therapy.

Ana brings a detailed, balanced, and clinical approach to her work by blending several massage modalities to restore balance to the soft tissues. Not surprisingly, she focuses on the body regaining balance and efficiency through massage techniques such as Deep tissue, Trigger point therapy, Sports massage therapy, Myofascial release, Swedish relaxation massage and injury-specific work and auto injury massage.

She is native to Oregon, and was born and raised in Hood River. Ana loves the outdoors and being in the sunshine as much as possible. When she is not at work, she enjoys being active and continually working on her personal development through a balance of strength training, running, Pilates and Barre. Her hobbies include Latin dance and Capoeira, eating extremely well, and enjoying good music.
