Therapeutic Massage

For the majority of my clients I use an integrative approach to massage therapy that reads your body, and tells me what pressures and massage tactics will provide the best results.

Lauren’s approach shifted my view on what makes an effective massage. It is very targeted, clinical, but calm and gentle. She has soothing energy and is intuitive. Lauren treated me following a couple of injuries and I kept going back to her because I felt better and wanted to tap into her expertise.
