Laura's philosophy is simple: In order to be effective in helping people, you need to treat the whole person, not just the arm or leg with the problem. Everything is connected to everything else so when you pull your hamstring it affects everything around it: your back, your gait, your sleep pattern. After all, people are more complicated than just having physical and mechanical problems. Everyone lives in the world, not in a bubble, and we are all affected by stress, biomechanics, emotions, expectations and occasionally injuries.
Laura graduated from a 2200 hour program at ICT Kikkawa College in 2005 and since then has added training in Thai Yoga Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Suikodo Neuromeridian Therapy, Reiki Level I and Hot Stone Massage. She has also continued to upgrade and update her skills through active reading of relevant books and articles notably for Pregnancy and Post-Natal Massage
Her interest in physical biodynamics started with ballet, gymnastics and martial arts. These led her to become fascinated by how the body works when it works properly and what happens to it when it doesn’t. She discovered the benefits of massage therapy after two car accidents and decided to undergo RMT training. Her experience in a rehabilitation clinic has helped her to understand back and neck problems and she employs many techniques to help. These include: Myofascial, Trigger Point, Cranial Sacral, ART, Suikodo and deep tissue work.
Laura's background ranges from Motor Vehicle and Workplace Accidents to Chronic Pain and Workplace Stress relief. She has worked in many settings including Chiropractic Clinics, Massage Therapy Clinics, Spas and Rehabilitation Clinics. She has been treating private clients for over eight years and would be delighted to help with any problems or just a need for relaxation.
