What draws me to acting is this immense curiosity for the human condition. As a means to better understand myself and the subconscious beliefs that drive us, I started practicing a psycho-energetic modality called ThetaHealing in 2005. I was able to develop my intuition, tailor an unconventional career adapted to my skills, and witness physical healing in myself and others.
Growing up with a special connection to nature at my father’s farm in the French countryside, I was exposed to alternative remedies thanks to my mother’s background in medicine. Performance brought me to New York City where I studied the body as an instrument: dance, voice, acting.
As an outgrowth from my singing and acting career and studying yoga, pranayama, opera, and working with disabled elders, I developed a set of exercises to connect the body and voice. Integrating movement and sound simultaneously to free vocal and physical blocks, balance your energy to incur physical healing, strengthen your communication and awareness.

ThetaHealing® is a philosophy for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. A direct application of quantum physics, it is the act of observing, during a deep meditation and using focused thought, that allows a transformation in the energetic field and the DNA of the cells. There is a connection between the client, the practitioner and the creative consciousness; change is integrated in the body, soul and mind instantaneously.
By asserting what you want to manifest into your life and discerning your current challenges, we identify old belief patterns and limiting subconscious programs that are no longer serving you. Becoming the conscious author of your reality, you start activating your personal potential and attracting experiences that are in alignment with your personal goals and life purpose.
I find this technique to be the most effective and universal modality to create perfect health and the life of our dreams. The seven planes of existence is a poetic and tangible proposition to illustrate Creation. It is a privilege to listen to my students and empower them by connecting every aspect of life to their divine timing.

I’m always looking for ways to expand my training. Flo integrates exercises to free the voice in a supported and dynamic manner. Then with it, she combines challenging creative movement work. I walk away from her class feeling strengthened and having discovered a new approach to my instrument. Her enthusiasm, training and adjustments are spot-on. —Tom Cleary, actor
I enjoyed taking Flo’s group class. It was a nice way to meet new people and learn about her theory. I liked using sound and movement together, in a way that I wouldn’t ordinarily, to experience a new way of experiencing my body. I think an individual class would be even better….highly recommended! Thank you! —April Dolan, painter
Flo Ankah uses an exciting and fun way to improve speaking and body language. There was definitely an improvement in the way I project my voice – and that was after my first session. Anyone, even those who consider themselves good speakers, will benefit from this workshop. —Rod N.
