In 1997 Lauren began her education at the Massage Institute of New England where she studied massage therapy including Deep tissue, Swedish & Esalen. From those studies, she graduated with a Diploma recognized by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). Since then she has been committed to helping people live healthier lives through the power of touch.
She has also studied Cranio-sacral therapy through the Upledger Institute, and have further broadened her education to include energy work in Reiki I and Reiki II, Reflexology, Neuromuscular therapy & Cervical and upper Thoracic pain conditions.
Her love of health and wellness led her to become a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). In 2006 she graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York City where her coursework was focused on whole foods/primary foods, cooking, additional massage education, yoga and meditation.

My journey into relaxation!
From the moment I cross the threshold to Lauren’s Massage, I feel I have arrived home. From the decadent relaxed atmosphere of tea and chocolates I immerse myself in the turquoise décor and I am ready to receive. Upon Lauren’s welcoming greeting I am led to a private dimly lit room where I will rest my body on a heated massage table and await rejuvenation! Lauren’s assessment of my reported ‘ache of the day’ coupled with her excellent massage technique, guarantees my journey into relaxation and healing will occur. Thank you Lauren for 20 years of care.!!

Her treatments made a real difference!
I initially went to Lauren more than ten years ago with a back injury that threatened to sideline me. Her treatments made a real difference in my recovery! And I have become a “regular.” Massage is good for specific ailments but it’s also great as part of a regular regiment of staying fit, limber and in good shape. I would recommend Lauren without hesitation. She knows her profession well; and is a warm, caring person who makes everyone feel as if he/she is her only client.
