Magic Hands


How dreamy would it be to visit a massage therapist who encouraged you to bring your three-month-old baby into the room with you—and would even be fine with massaging you as you nurse the baby (lying down)?
That’s why Anna Belanger, an Ottawa massage therapist and doula, decided to create her own clinic, Anna Belanger & Associates—a place specifically designed to cater to “women in their birthing years”.

Anna Belanger & Associates opened just over a week ago on Bank Street in Old Ottawa South, and is reputedly the first and only such clinic in the city. Anna had been a massage therapist in the Glebe for some time (and in Vancouver before that), but was increasingly convinced that she wanted to specialize in women—primarily pregnant and postnatal ones.
