Ten years ago I received my first professional, therapeutic massage - and it truly changed the trajectory of my life. I felt hopeful again, more comfortable in my skin, in far less pain, and my spirit was more at peace. I couldn't stop thinking about having a career that could potentially do the same for other people. So in 2011 I completed an Associates of Applied Science degree in Massage Therapy from Northwestern Health Sciences University. For the past 8 years I have had the honor of partnering with clients to support their health and wellness through effective, evidence-based massage therapy delivered with compassion, respect and unconditional acceptance. I am very excited to start my private practice at Life Healing Life; it's a beautiful, intentional, and conscientious space to relax, rehabilitate, refresh, and renew.

I very much like everything! Laura is extraordinarily attentive, sensitive to her client, and extremely open and helpful. I always leave feeling much better than I did when I arrived!

I really enjoyed meeting with Laura and felt so comfortable and relaxed. She was very kind and helped work out a lot of tension in my body. I felt valued and healed by her practices. ~ Suzi Nelson

Laura is very skilled at therapeutic massage. She always listens first and communicates throughout the massage. I've always left feeling better than when I came in, sometimes with dramatic improvement. Laura is also a very pleasant human being and I feel very lucky to have found her through a recommendation from my girlfriend.

Laura has always been very attentive to the needs of my body during massage. At the end, she always asks if there are any unresolved areas still needing work.

I suffer from chronic pain, and this massage really helped me get some great relief. Laura is kind and listens to what you need in your session. She is very skilled and uses a variety of techniques to relieve pain. The best massage I've ever had!

I was in a lot of pain and Laura got me in the same day. She gave me exactly the type of massage I needed, was respectful and thoughtful and didn’t rush. The space is lovely and parking was easy. I plan to be a “regular”!
