The Quiet Space Massage Therapy for Sports, Injury Recovery,
Pregnancy and General Well-being and Relaxation
Canary Wharf, East London

Home. Today4

Hello. My name is Annie and I have been providing Massage Therapy for Sport, Pregnancy, General Wellbeing and Reiki to those who work and live in Canary Wharf, The Docklands and East London since July 2000. There is a lot of information on this site but most of what you need to know in order to make an appointment is right here on the home page.

How do you want to feel after your massage?

Energised? Relaxed? Focused? Centred? Ready to take on the world? Ready for a good nights sleep?
Or any combination of the above?! (Recent review comment - ‘refreshed’ like that description :)- )
There is a bespoke massage waiting just for you here with me at The Quiet Space.

This week and next current available appointments.

Times are initially flexible while diary fills. The hours posted are based on 60 minute treatment times. If you do not see a time that suits just send a quick text or email as there are further options not listed to accommodate 30 and 90 minute appointments.

Week commencing Monday 16th March please send messages to arrange your appointments. Please note that I am no longer
permitted to operate face to face and that appointments are now for remote Reiki healing.


UPDATE Sunday 22nd March 12 noon.
With the exception of two massages, I have been physically alone since the 17th March. I have walked to and from The Quiet Space from home. The Quiet Space is a one room venue. Yesterday I did enter the mall to go Boots, I saw the mall full of people still and not just the supermarkets and pharmacy open as I was expecting. Surfaces everywhere for this virus to be on and people crowded closer than social distancing....people who had a choice to stay home or be distant but did not....

However on the other side hundreds of thousands of people in London have no choice to self isolate or maintain social distance. Financial sector, Police, NHS and many others are out in London and working in close quarters every day.

Regarding hands on therapies I have been requested by our local council to close.

Reiki distant healing is now the remaining way I can continue to contribute.. I am a therapist. I want to help and to continue to do so.

Read about Reiki distant healing. It is a powerful way that I can still help as a therapist those who are at home and getting stressed. I have wanted to expand into it more openly for a long time. If ever there was a time, now is it.

Quote of the week - in relation to the anxiety and stress we will all be experiencing in increasing amounts. Keep Calm and ‘Reiki’ on!

Reiki is mainly commonly noted for the deep sense of peace and mental and physical relaxation felt during and after a session. One recent report was that the individual felt full of light for four days.

Previously a part of my work not openly discussed on the web site and offered only to existing Reiki clients. Distant Reiki is perfect for this stressful time and circumstamces.

Here is a brief outline of the practicalities. The sessions will be 20-30 mins in duration and how and when will be agreed between us. You will not need to lay down or do anything special unless you want to of course! There are many options, timed for when you wake or go to sleep, or when you are out walking. It does not have to be simultaneous, and therefore it will be a completely bespoke experience. If we have not previously met I would like to make some kind of connection either by email or phone or whats app/zoom for you to provide some information about yourself so that I can focus on you.

I will also provide the opportunity for a follow up phone or whatsapp call for you to discuss, digest and integrate your experience. Please enquire by email. More details and sensible web links for you to research on to follow on this page soon.

Please reserve judgement as just like a hands on experience, what you read from others will not be relevant to you or describe me. If you want to -just trust that instinct as that is the first stage to gaining the most from the experience!

It is a side of my work that I have always been hugely thankful that I am able to facilitate.. as the reach is without boundaries and has allowed me to maintain a connection with many over the years regardless of geographical location

Please feel free to contact me for a chat or by email. There will be no pressure from me to proceed should you make an enquiry. Practitioners are channels not enforcers and you will be just as in control of your experience as if we were physically present together. Payment will be via paypal.


1.Send a quick text to 07939026830 or email via contact form with request.

2 You will get a very prompt response from me personally. (The only consideration to this being that I may be engaged in a treatment or if it is the middle of the night.. asleep!)

3. You can pay using the paypal link (or by sum up in a few

I feel that your experience here at The Quiet Space should be confidential. A massage therapy appointment is a highly individualised and deeply personal experience for you. For me to work with you with full integrity, ‘hold the space‘ for what unfolds sometimes as long held tensions release and then for you to unravel or revisit what life has thrown your way requires trust on both sides and not one eye on the potential ‘star rating’

However as I also practice in another venue and with App referrals where they encourage reviews. I have placed the most recent of these below. Please note I do not ever request my fully private QS clients to write reviews.

All of the below reviews are published by the app anonymously.

Impressed with this therapy session, expected just a standard massage but this was far better and more like a treatment where you benefit from the knowledge and experience of the practitioner. Saved me. Will be back.

I feel that Annie is a master and definitely above the level of any massage therapists I’ve visited. She listens to what your body needs and simply adjusts what the session should contain. My body felt so refreshed after only 30 mins!

Amazing therapist who does this work for passion. Highly recommended

Massage with Anne
Most valuable massage experience I have ever had! Anne is incredibly knowledgable and was able to instantly map out my problem areas and to provide me with actionable advice on how to alter my day-to-day behaviour to reduce pain and aches in my back. In addition, the massage provided instant relief to my body which is under constant abuse from office work combined with an irregular, but at times very intense, exercise routine. I was hoping for a 30 minute massage that would, at best, make me feel a little more relaxed but this appointment truly exceeded my expectations and I would strongly recommend anyone to book an appointment with Anne. Thank you!

Massage with Anne
"I can honestly say this was the best massage I’ve had in a very long time. I’ve got a spinal fusion and Anne really helped relieve the pain and tension in my back, something that no physiotherapist or masseuse has ever been able to do in the past. Thanks Anne I will definitely be back for a longer session"

A little information about my training and experience.

My original training was at The Swedish Institute in Manhattan USA in 1998.
On graduation from The Swedish institute we were qualified to and expected to apply our skills as required with sport and injuries, with pregnancy or medical conditions both in our private practice and when working in collaboration with chiropractors, in hospitals or with medical insurance companies

I have training, qualifications and have practiced in Shiatsu and five element theory and Dr.Vodder Lymphatic Drainage but I do not offer them anymore as standalone therapies as I have always focused on massage therapy.

I have also been Reiki attuned since 2000 and am currently undergoing a very traditional albeit long distance apprenticeship in Reiki master with my original teacher who lives and practices in New York. We are of the Usui lineage and our branch or lineage is comprised of six prior masters.

You are always welcome to call me or email enquiries prior to making an appointment at The Quiet Space.

If you have free time and want to read more about the numerous benefits of massage or more about my background it is all available to you on other pages.

Please click on any of the links for a description of what to expect and an outline of some of the potential benefits. I have focused on outlining the actual potential benefits for you from each massage rather than an educational anatomy and physiology approach. Feel free to email me any questions though and I will be happy to respond.

Your massage here at The Quiet Space

I am a completely independant practitioner therefore I can be flexible and take the time and approach that we need to complete a treatment with you as the individual that you are. I am also free to give you appropriate recomendations and advice and referrals to others who may be better placed to help you or complement our work together.

The ‘type’ of massage we will engage with during your appointment will be structured according to our discussion and will take fully into account your desired outcome together with my assessment in how to achieve that for you within either a one off session, several or long term series of appointments.

If you want to ask me something the next day or later at any time in the future you can easily contact me without going through a booking agent or receptionist.

I value your right to privacy and have never liked a conveyor belt approach to treating people. There won’t be someone else here when you arrive and another sitting outside when you leave. Therefore if we need a few extra minutes we can take them at no extra charge, if you are on a tight schedule we can accomadate that. (To facilitate all of this it is therefore very important both for me and for your maximum benefit also that you arrive on time for your appointment).

It is possible to enjoy and benefit from an ante natal massage at any time during your pregnancy. Post natal massage to relax and rejuvenate is also highly beneficial.

I was just thinking that the 'baby' of the first 'mother to be' that I gave a massage to would now be 20 years old!

Location directions.

My treatment room is located within the Grade 2 Listed buildings of The Cannon Workshops on Hertsmere Road just off West India Quay.
Post code is E14 4AS. See map on side bar.

It is a 5 minute walk from Cabot Square.
Cross over the pedestrian bridge onto The West India Quay; turn left as you come off the bridge and you will see The Cannon Workshops ahead of you facing the end of the quay. (The water is now on your left and the bars and restaurants are on your right and The cannon Workshops will be visible straight ahead of you once you pass The Docklands museum.)
West India Quay DLR is three minutes walk along the quayside same as above.
Westferry DLR is five minutes walk.
See photo images of directions on the appointments page if still unsure.

If you are driving we are fortunate that you may park for free during your appointment inside The Cannon Workshops Courtyard.

If cycling my treatment room can easily accommodate your bicycle.

There is a lot of Sports massage available in Canary Wharf and E14...So is a sports and injury massage at The Quiet Space relevant to you?
We all have numerous imbalances in our bodies that normally pass unnoticed until we begin to challenge ourselves physically beyond normal activities. Whether that be an increase in the weights you are lifting, a technique improvement, stamina or flexibility training or simply pain and discomfort from prolonged sitting at a desk; a long day in high heels; a stint in the garden or moving furniture!

Home. Texting

Does this image remind you of anyone?!

Massage can help alleviate the aches, reset your muscles and develop a better posture. So while you are in the position... and if your neck and shoulders are actually aching a little now or you are noticing that your head is very far forward of your shoulders...think about texting for some APPOINTMENTS to see how beneficial it can be!

Never had a therapeutic massage before?!

I wrote the text featured at the bottom of the page titled ‘Thoughts on Massage’ way back in 2000 when I first returned to London. 19 Years ago skilled therapeutic massage was not really so widely available in London and generally people were less well educated about the benefits.
Times and attitudes have certainly changed and massage therapy clients are now familiar with concepts of deep tissue, trigger point, sport massage and so forth. However the words I wrote below when still relatively inexperienced still hold true and apply in some way to every type of massage whether it be sport, deep tissue, general relaxation, remedial or pregnancy or any other description currently in vogue!


Dear Body and Mind

When you are tense your muscles are literally squeezing you internally, inhibiting the free flow of energy.
You can think of this energy as blood circulation; nerve impulses; ideas; openness; enthusiasm and a zest for life...a general sense of wellbeing...the resilience of your immune system.

Easing of this tension with the help of massage can assist in enhancing the energy you have for your daily activities, how you relate to the people in your life and of course your general health.

A massage using a deep tissue approach, but applied with skill and a soothing sensitivity; is not only deeply relaxing at the time; but can also be highly beneficial in managing various medical conditions, an aid to exercise programs and assist in speedier recovery from injuries.

Quite impressive for a one hour relaxing experience!

Yours faithfully
