Ann Hughes (owner) graduated from the Pennsylvania School of Muscle Therapy in King of Prussia, PA in 2006 and opened Pro-Active Muscle Therapy as a single therapist business. Since that time, she has continually sought to expand her expertise through many hours of hands on work with her clients and many hours of continuing education including Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, CranioFascial Therapy (formerly Brain Therapy), Upledger's Craniosacral therapy, Orthobionomy and more. Ann has an extensive background in working with the local Pennsylvania equestrian community. Her hobbies include horseback riding and spending time with her family. Ann spent 20 years as a volunteer in the field of K9 Search and Rescue, training four of her own search dogs, instructing new handlers, teaching specialized courses and holding certification testing for the National Association of Search and Rescue. In the Fall of 2014, Pro-Active Muscle Therapy was expanded to a beautiful old school house in the heart of the Village of Nottingham, PA. Since then PAMT has grown to include multiple active therapists whose goals are to keep the surrounding community Active for Life!
Ann is currently taking new clients 3 years of age and younger.

Drakeston Gagnier graduated from the Academy of Massage and Bodywork in the Fall of 2018 and jumped right into the team at Pro-Active. He lived in Washington State for most of his life before relocating to Pennsylvania a couple of years ago. A menagerie of horses, goats and even llamas keep Drakeston busy in his off time though he can also be found enjoying a good book or out hiking the beautiful grounds of Chester County. Drakeston is still deciding what specialties to add to his repertoire but one thing is certain - he is a professional learner and is always striving to be the best therapist he can be!
Drakeston is currently taking new clients 18 years of age and older.
