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.

Ms. Laura Skarpa was very knowledgeable. She explained everything to me, took her time to ensure I was comfortable & not in pain. She was very caring. I really appreciate her.

I enjoy when I can have a small conversation about my days and relate to what Mrs.Laura, never feeling awkward while getting treated for my injures. But most of all, when Mrs.Laura tell me to sit up and move my head around (since i was injured on the shoulders) to see if I could feel any tension, its remarkable that the pain on my shoulders seem as if they never existed. I highly recommend other people to visit Mrs.Laura at "Tranqui Retreat Therapy and Massage Clinic" for any needs of injuries or need therapy. Thank you, Mrs. Laura. For helping me while I slowly heal from my injury on my shoulders.

Loved everything about the experience! I was lucky enough to be able to just walk in and be seen. I walked in feeling like I was run over by a semi truck and walked out feeling brand new!

Laura demonstrated her knowledge base from the start. She was attentive and actually listened to me and quickly developed a great treatment plan. Her knowledge of fibromyalgia treatments is excellent! The cost is very reasonable and competitive.
