Laura doesn't see massage therapy as her job, but as her calling. She takes the time to ask questions, to listen, to make suggestions, to educate, and to tailor each session to her client's unique challenges. Her professionalism and genuine care combine to make each session a relaxing and profitable experience!

Honestly, I was blown away by the whole experience. Laura took the time to listen to me and asked just the right questions to personalize my massage time so that all my needs were met. Her touch is gentle, yet strong, she consistently asks if pressure is okay, and the setting is perfectly lovely. The glass of ice water at the end is the icing on the cake :) She is a delight and so sweet! If you are "on the fence" about going, you should definitely jump on off and give her a call. It will be worth it!!

Laura gave me the best massage I've ever had! I saw immediate results with increased motion in my shoulder, and I did not experience the "normal" level of discomfort that I typically associate with deep tissue massage. I will definitely visit her again!

I loved how Laura spent time discussing my health before and after the massage! It was great attention to detail and care for me as a person, not just a client. Would highly recommend her and can't wait to go back myself.

by Reverie C. on Mar 28
Laura has done several massages for me, and I believe she gets better each time. She is constantly working on improving her techniques, and believes strongly in the benefit of massage for the whole person. The atmosphere is quiet and conducive to relaxation. Highly recommend.

Professional communication of my individual health issues & her knowledge & expertise resulted in an extremely positive, relaxing & beneficial massage!
by Anonymous on Feb 26
I was looking for a more aggressive massage, deeper on the pressure points, etc. It was definitely a relaxing hour, but I walked away feeling like the depth/pain that is normally penetrated was not. I have gone to massage therapy on a monthly basis for years. This is the first time that, after having my chiropractic adjustment on that same afternoon, I had an additional 30 minute massage elsewhere in order to feel like the job was complete. If you're not going for deep massage, but focused more on relaxation, then this is the place to come. :-)

I would have enjoyed the experience more if the relaxing music was playing from the beginning of my time and if there were some relaxing scent in the room. I felt the massage was a little on the light side. I would have enjoyed a stronger massage. I really enjoyed getting to know Laura. She is a delightful person and really wants to help others with her talent.

Business response:

I appreciate your honest feedback. It's so important in a deep tissue session to communicate what you are experincing and if you need deeper pressure. Thank you for reminding me how important it is to remind my client of that when they are asking for deep tissue work. I will work hard to improve my communication of that in the future.
