Laura in Richmond (Central Virginia), VA + Charlottesville, Roanoke, Lynchburg, USA
Hello All! My name is Laura.
I am a state and nationally certified Massage Therapist. I studied at the Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy, where I learned the arts of tactile and energetic healing and bodywork. My specialties include Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Aromatherapy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and Energy Healing.
My massage is slow and strong, and I take great care in putting my clients at ease. It is my purpose to help you achieve your highest good while in my hands.
I love giving massage. I began rubbing feet and walking on backs at age 4, the same year Billy Idol and David Bowie began my ongoing affection for all things musical. Iíve been in love with music and the human experience ever since. I enjoy working with and connecting with people from all walks of life.
I find my happiness in good music, good company, and the great outdoors. When Iím not massaging, Iím going to shows, cooking, walking the beach, dancing, laughing, and enjoying time with my family.
Iím truly thankful for this opportunity to work for Dr. Dot as a way to give back to the music community. Iíd be happy to have you at my table.
Peace, Love, and Good Health
