Anda is the Icelandic word for Breathe.

Andrea Gunnlaugson Furlan, owner and sole operator of Anda, is Icelandic and Anda just happens to be one of her nicknames.

“Give yourself permission
to take time to breathe,
to live life,
to give,
to love,
to be present,
and to just be.”

 “From the moment I walked into Andrea’s massage room I felt her great energy! Andrea’s knowledge of the body and how it works was very apparent in the treatment. I started out with a sore back and booked an hour massage and the work she was doing was so great I upped it to 90 minutes (thankful she had the time to do that). For anyone looking for some amazing healing hands Andrea is your girl!”

 “Andrea has an intuitive ability to track dysfunction in the body and give massages that help to relieve the accompanying discomfort.  And she does so in a manner that includes the client in becoming part of their own healing, if that is their choice. Her depth of knowledge about the aligned functioning of the body is exceptionally comprehensive. I highly recommend her massage treatments.”
