Today’s guests on Healing or Whoo Whoo, hosted by Mark Bishop
Anna Marie Blessing
Biofeedback Therapist and Metaphysician
Anna Marie Blessing, CNC, B.Msc is the founder of Tucson Biofeedback and an Ordained Minister where she facilitates both healing and transformation in people’s lives both locally and around the world through her local and remote clinic.
Anna once suffered from the dreadful conditions of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. Embarking upon a journey to heal herself this journey turned into a Life’s Mission to help others do the same. She has over 10,000 hours of specialty training and is currently finishing her doctorate.
Anna grew up in Mukilteo, WA a quaint city about 20 minutes north of Seattle. She was homeschooled, both completing high school and beginning college at 16. Anna always had a hunger for knowledge, growth and to make a difference in her own life and the lives of others. This desire to not only see a different possibility but to live it took her and her husband of 10 years on what is best deemed “the alchemist’s journey”. They opened clinics in Seattle, LA, and New England and always had the entrepreneur spirit.
This journey ultimately led them to plant their roots here in Tucson. “The 1st weekend we came out here, we just knew this was home. And for the 1st time, we were ready to take a break from our adventurous lifestyle and dig our roots into this city”.
People who are seeking out true and lasting change and who have exhausted all healing options are the ones who enter her doors one way and leave forever transformed.
