evidence-based massage therapy delivered with compassion, respect and unconditional acceptance

Eight 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.

Eight 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 5 1/2 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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Marcie on May 19
Laura is truly a gifted professional who speaks the language of bodies.
by Nicole on May 13
This was the first time I did a 2 hour massage with Laura (I usually do 60 or 90 minutes). The rate was a great value and I definitely enjoyed the extra time on the table. I'm going to have to work in a few more 2 hour visits going forward! Laura also helped find some areas of tension in my hips that were referring into my lower back that I would have never known about which helped my back feel better. She's a gem!

I have been seeing Laura on and off for the past six years and always leave her table feeling refreshed. If I have a tight or achy spot, she gets right in there and makes it feel better.

As always, Laura combines the qualities of the consummate professional and learned practitioner of her craft with those of a genuinely caring and kind individual. This is what professional therapeutic bodywork is supposed to be.

Extremely professional and goes to great lengths to ensure she is meeting your needs appropriately.

Laura always does a great job. She makes a point to ask what goals for a session are and then adjusts to those goals.

This was my first visit to Laura Evans. She has a warm, compassionate manner that put me right at ease, and she gave me a thorough relaxation massage, which was effective and helpful. The offices are decorated in lovely soothing colors, with nice accent pieces scattered about. Very welcoming and friendly. I will go back again.

Laura has a knack for finding trigger points and getting them to release.
