Lauren gave me my first medical massage in my 76 years of life! I have limited flexibility, especially on my right side. I arrived with the usual aches and pains. I walked out one hour later without a hitch in my giddyup. Amazing! Another appointment set up in three weeks. Thanks so much, Lauren!

When Lauren heard of my pain and injury she told me to come in for a massage so she could help. I am SO GLAD I did. Today was the first day in months I commuted home pain-free. She knew exactly what the issue was and how to address it. Thank you Lauren!

Lauren is fantastic! She is one of the most skilled massage therapist I have ever been to. She pays attention to what you say before she starts and then incorporates that into your time with her.

She is amazing and truly helped lower my pain level which I have been stuggling with for years. She powered through my toughest areas and was able to give me more flexibility and take care of a pinched nerve. I highly recommend Lauren for anyone who has chronic pain and wants to do something to easy the strain.

I was referred to Lauren with high praise. I came to Lauren carrying a lot of tension in my neck, shoulders and upper back. Lauren listened to my needs and significantly helped release my tension and soreness. Thank you!

Lauren released so many tight muscles. Movement was so much improved. She listens to the problems and then fixes them. Highly recommend
