Hope for Trauma Survivors

When an individual goes through a traumatic experience, the incident is often buried deep in the subconscious. Many health issues can present themselves as a result of unresolved trauma.

There is hope for a breakthrough, however, using therapeutic massage treatments.

No-charge Massage Therapy

Recently, the Anna Sun Foundation (ASF) received its first grant from the West End Health Foundation. This grant funding will allow patients dealing with trauma to receive a no-charge one-hour massage.

The ASF is a charitable organization focused on healing, recovery, education and awareness purposes.

A Will to Overcome

The Anna Sun Foundation was established in 2018 by founder Anna McBride. She felt compelled to create the ASF due to her own interest in the holistic healing practices. Anna has been inspired by her own will to overcome a history of personal trauma and her desire to integrate mind, body, and spirit.

She holds a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Development, Psychology from Northern Michigan University. Anna has successfully completed a 625 Clock-Hour Massage Therapist Program through Marquette School of Therapeutic Massage. She continues educating and healing through Trauma-Informed

Anna began her Soul Cell Healing Journey in 2016. She utilized all the resources available to help her heal and now wants to help others do the same. She is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and aims to break new ground with her approach for survivors through The Anna Sun Foundation. Anna believes our hidden emotions, anxieties and old thinking patterns are harbored through a build-up of past life experiences that must be felt and processed in order to heal.
