Lauren moved to Nelson in the fall of 2019 to be closer to nature and enjoy all the wonders of the Kootenays. She began her registered massage therapy studies in Toronto where she had the opportunity to train under a diverse group of professionals. She acquired significant experience and skills through a variety of clinical placements where she assessed and provided therapeutic massage to individuals with physical and cognitive impairments. She has volunteered at multiple marathon events where she worked with athletes and gained knowledge of sports massage.
Prior to pursuing a career in massage therapy, Lauren had the rewarding experience of volunteering at a midwife clinic and worked at a yoga studio where she developed a keen interest in women’s health. As her practice and skill set continues to evolve, she has come to realize her passion for providing pregnancy massage and massage during the child bearing years. She is committed to continuing education and is currently enrolled in courses to further her learning in these areas.
Lauren enjoys working with individuals of all ages and provides deep tissue massage incorporating myofascial release when needed. She believes that client centred, therapeutic massage has the ability to enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well being and is an integral piece in the puzzle of overall wellness. She includes mindfulness and relaxation in every treatment with the goal of each person feeling like attention was given to both their mind and body, allowing them to breathe, relax and rehabilitate. Lauren looks forward to helping you on your wellness journey!
