My experience with Lara has been part rehab, part maintenance. She has done great things for me in both regards.

I liked being able to ask Lara questions about what I was experiencing in my neck and why, including questions about anatomy. I felt she was warmly authoritative in her responses and knowledgeable.her room was warm and professional.

Lara was very professional and knew how to help me.

Lara was very clear from the beginning that her technique was not the spa experience unless I asked for it. I have had a lot of different body work done and I am always ready to learn and try new methods. Lara was quickly very in tune with my body, seemed to speak a body language I have never experienced before, her treatment was super helpful and made me listen to my own body in a new way. I would go back today if my budget would allow for it. But for now, I will have to highly recommend her to anyone interested and curious - thank you Lara.

Lara has helped me gain more flexion after I had a knee replacement without causing me more pain. She is one of the best massage therapists that I have ever had. I can never stay awake once I'm on her table because I'm so relaxed.

Lara is skilled, knowledgeable, and empathetic massage therapist, who I've gone to for more than five years. Since August 2018, I have seen her even more regularly for help with my knees pre and post knee replacement surgery. I appreciate that she explains what she is doing when she manipulates my knees in different ways, and helps me to figure out what that I have done that is helping or hindering my healing. She remembers aspects of my difficulties that sometimes I have even forgotten. I look forward to our visits.

Lara has TWICE helped me prepare for very large multi-day endurance events. I highly recommend her to any athletes looking to prepare for a race. She's the epitome of the quiet professional - very focused on seeking out and resolving problems one at a time until the whole system is working better again. Thanks Lara!
