About Us

I have been a LMBT since 2009. I've worked in various settings but really enjoy more structural work vs. a traditional "relaxation" massage.

In 2014 I opened Bodywork of Tallahassee LLC, primarily, because I wanted to create an environment and community that was part of a whole. 

Overall, what I've seen  in the medical community, is, lack. Lack of understanding on how massage or what I do, manual therapy is seen and thought about, treatments are considered a luxury or something done while only on vacation. This is where the problem starts. People freely give their power, time and money while sitting at home wondering why the prescription or the surgery didn't work.

There is certainly a place for both of those things; but only as an absolute last resort, not the first step.

Lori is simply the best massage therapist i have come across in my entire life. I have been working with her for years and she gives me more hope about my pain and health conditions than any of the doctors that I visit. She can immediately pinpoint my trouble areas and she always has knowledge to share. I look forward to my massage every time. She is a true Gem!

Business response:

WOW :) Thank you for your kind words!! I look forward to working with you again.

Lori listens to what you need and caters your session to address the problem. She is to the body what a mechanic is to a car!

Lori is so skilled! I am not interested in a relaxation massage even though it is very much that, but she is so good with helping me alleviate my pain in my neck, shoulders and mid-back. I thought I would have to live with it, after it resurfaced from an auto accident 20 years ago, but she has worked it out and keeps it from returning. She's worked on other areas that I didn't even know could be helped by massage (my jaw). She has excellent knowledge about the body and how to help. I'm so glad I finally found her. No more fluff massages for me!

Thank you very much Cathy. :)

Excellent technique and skille , only thing missing was some background spa music.

Business response:

Thank you for the feedback Kathy. In a medical massage therapy setting, spa music isn't typically used. You can always request it though. :)

I liked Lori very much personally, and her in-depth knowledge of massage was impressive. I have a 20-year history of neck and back stiffness that has only gotten worse over time. She told me things I have never had a therapist mention, and my initial treatment included working on some areas of concern that no therapist has ever covered. She made me feel like she had a genuine interest in my individual needs, and we discussed a specific plan of therapy to address those. I would highly recommend her if you need some serious therapeutic work.

Lori has been my LMT for nearly 3 years now. Her skill and professionalism are truly unparalleled. I used to travel for work and have received massages from therapists at big-name hotels, resorts, and health spas. I have never met an LMT that has shown the same results that I have after a session with Lori. If you have any kind of nagging pain that just won't go away, Lori is a must-see!

I have had lots of massages over my lifetime but never have I had the total relief from pain and stress that Lori gives. She has a very unique style that really gets to the core of the problems and stress build up. She will find things hidden that you didn't even know were there. Lori is a total professional and her knowledge of her profession is amazing. If you want a "real" massage that will totally give you relief, then you need Lori. I give her 5 stars and would highly recommend her.

Lori should be on the "Who's Who" Cover Magazine. She is very attentive to details, and is very good at findings the source of muscle strains and is able to apply the right pressure/movement to take care of the problem. From shoulder issues, neck strains, to leg cramps, she has helped. AWESOME WORK.
