Anima Interna was born from a desire to help people reconnect with their inner spirit, create community and share information about the world around us and the world within us. We help people re-discover that self-care is NOT a luxury, it is a NECESSITY!

anima interna ; italian, meaning "inner soul"

In the busy hustle & bustle of life, we find ourselves disconnected from each other as well as from our true self. That was the situation for our founder, Alison C. Lynch. After 20 years in the corporate and technology start-up world, Alison realized she could no longer recall her purpose, her peace nor her true personality. Fortunately, she was introduced to the world of meditation, craniosacral therapy, energy work, massage, self-care & yoga ... and so, began the lifelong journey of self re-discovery.

OUR GOAL : We hope that we can play role to help YOU reconnect with yourself.

With that in mind, Anima Interna helps you reconnect through : touch therapy in the form of massage (therapeutic, swedish, deep tissue, pre-natal, etc), lymphatic balancing, craniosacral therapy visceral manipulation. 


Welcome to Anima Interna and your inner soul.
