Annie Garic – ACE Educator



Annie Garic has been interested in health and well-being her entire life. She graduated with a BS in Health and Physical Education from the University of New Orleans and a Masters degree in Physical Education from Southern Methodist University. She taught H&PE and coached at the high school level for 10 years before discovering her true passion in the healing arts. During her last year of coaching she strained her back while playing with her team. A friend suggested a massage. She was so amazed by the results, the rest is history. She is still playing basketball today.

Annie began her massage therapy career in 1987 earning certifications from the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing, the Atlanta School of Massage, and the Upledger Institute. She continually seeks educational opportunities to enhance her skills for the benefit of her clients’ health and lifestyle.

In 2001, she took her first ACE Massage Cupping™ workshop from Anita Shannon. The benefits were immediate for her clients and herself. She continued to study with Anita and became a Certified ACE Massage Cupping™ educator in 2007.

Annie practices in New Orleans, La and Asheville, NC and teaches all over the country.
