Ana started her career as a nurse in the Oncology & Bone Marrow Transplantation Department at Red' Or São Luiz in São Paulo, the internationally renowned oncology hospital in Brazil where she also achieved her first Postgraduate Degree in Oncology.

Upon completion of a second Postgraduate Degree in Aesthetics focusing on Lymphatic Drainage and the arrival of her second child, Ana embarked on her new speciality providing post-operative aftercare in hospitals to surgical patients, particularly within the cosmetic arena to aid their recovery. Private home visits soon followed during which she honed the ANA TRIDA THERAPIST METHOD, which incorporates her signature MODELLING MASSAGE to further help to sculpt and tone the body, even helping to improve the appearance of the skin.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage, in addition to eliminating excess fluid retention and aiding relaxation, is vital in boosting our immune systems, energy levels, metabolism, and digestive systems.
