Helping You Live a Happier and Healthier Life
Lauren believes everyone is unique and deserves care custom tailored to their specific set of wants and needs, whether you need relief from the strain of pregnancy, a reprieve from the aches and pains of father time, or just some relaxation from everyday stress. She became a massage therapist because she enjoys learning about different forms of holistic healing and in turn healing people with her acquired knowledge. She is continually expanding her massage tool box in order to find additional ways to help people live happier and healthier lives.
Lauren graduated cum laude from her therapeutic massage program at Madison College where her training was based on Swedish-style massage. Her education has given her extensive experience with deep tissue and trigger point therapy. She is also trained in functional movement therapy. Before her massage therapy training, she graduated from the chiropractic technology program at Palmer College of Chiropractic where she embraced the clinical aspect of holistic healing.
Massage oil or cream is used with smooth, gliding strokes. Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. It is a classic massage that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation.
Hot Stone Massage
Smooth stones are heated and then lubricated with oil or essential oils, the therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist’s hands, the use of massage stones induces deep relaxation and provides a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.
Deep Tissue Massage
Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface.
