My name is Ana Bernal, the founder of Thai Mandala. 

I am a massage therapist and I am from Brazil.

My massage therapist career had started with a very beautiful search (an inner search that reflected in my professional area).

I was a lawyer for 12 years (at that time I received weekly massages due to stress). But never really connected with it.

I tried to find myself in other areas: I worked as a photographer and with parallel educational marketing while still working as a lawyer.

I was looking for a job that reflected or matched who I truly was.

It was a journey of many years to find my purpose, to find something that thrilled me and that matched my lifestyle.

It was a journey of self knowledge.

I lived in California, Australia, the Netherlands and it was in Amsterdam that I started studying thai massage in 2016. 

In 2017, I spent 3 months in Thailand to study advanced levels of traditional thai massage. then, I returned to Amsterdam to work at a very famous massage therapy clinic there.

In January 2018, I returned to my home country and created Thai Mandala, giving massages and Access Bars sessions and Thai massage courses throughout Brazil.

In October 2019, I moved to England for love.


Now I am putting my efforts to make Thai Mandala's purpose a reality here in UK: promoting relaxation and healing through my therapeutic touch.

My clinic is in Colchester Town and it's exclusive for women only. Annually, during winter time, I return to my country for 1 or 2 months to spend time with my family and also give treatments to my beloved clients there.

My main goal is to provide a great personalized service to each patient , focused in pain relief and reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety.
