Laura Skarpa

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

I have been a massage therapist since 2006.  My certification in orthopedic massage in 2008 from James Waslaski revolutionized my practice.  I work to relieve pain by balancing muscles and restoring motion.  I have worked with soldiers, athletes and people of all ages.  I welcome the challenge of teaching people how to help themselves through stretching and strengthening.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Went away feeling great

Laura is very skilled at her craft. The amount of pressure was just right, I didn't require any less or more. She knew exactly what worked. Everyone needs to try Tranquil Retreat. Pricing was very reasonable.

I was sleepy the rest of the day! I responded to a few emails from students and laid down. Exactly what I needed. Thank you so very much.

Laura worked on my problem & eased a lot of the discomfort at my first session. Soaking in bath tub, continued stretching & icy hot plus working out at the pool was my routine. Second session was icing on the cake .... much improved some soreness & not as flexible as I was before but pray that will improve. THANKS !

Laura explains what the issue is and goes over possible causes and treatments. My daughter has gone to her twice now and will continue to see Laura for her sports injuries.

Laura is very personable and one of the best massage therapists that I have ever experienced and I have gone to many all over the world. Her level of training and knowledge is exemplary and her sensitivity and awareness of each client and their needs is amazing. She has studied the technique of Orthopedic Massage and has techniques far above the standard training. The end result is the best massage available. I am a disabled veteran with many different struggles and she addresses each area with care and great ability.
