Transformational healing through compassionate presence and expert bodywork
Hello, I am Laura Rose, and my passion is to create deeply transformational healing experiences through compassionate presence and bodywork that create inner peace, and well being.
My journey into the healing arts began when my own mother massaged me as an infant. She said that I would "coo" and relax as her hands said "you can relax now" in that non-verbal language that we all understand. At a young age, I loved being able to soothe my sister back to sleep when she awoke with anxiety in the middle of the night, and loved "untying knots" in my classmates necks and shoulders in junior high and high school. But it wasn't until I got sick after graduating from college that I received my first professional massage. There was something about the calming contact that helped me relax about all the stressors that I was going through, and a light went on inside of me that said "I want to do this work! I want to know how the body heals!" And I was enrolled in a holistic massage and natural therapeutic school within a year of that first massage.
I have been practicing and fine-tuning my "Listening Touch" since the year 2000 and have over 2600 hours of education in the healing arts, including certifications in Oncology Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, and Prenatal massage. Despite my many years of training and experience, I will always love being a student.
If you are someone who wishes to:
find inner peace amidst the chaos of life,
receive support in understanding the messages from your body,
be listened-to and cared for by a professional, compassionate and experienced practitioner,
create a healthy relationship with your body so that you can heal from injuries and live an active life,
experience more vitality while living with chronic illness,
receive bodywork that is gentle, mindful, and soothing
...then you have found the right person.
