Laurie H.

bio:

I came into massage as a second career after fifteen years in the music business, which was fun but also incredibly stressful. I¹ve always liked helping others and always loved the way massage made me feel, so it seemed like a logical next step. It¹s been one of the best decisions I¹ve ever made. Helping people feel better in their own bodies is incredibly rewarding to me. I still love music ­ probably even more so now that I¹m not working in the industry ­ and catch as many live shows as I can. I also love dancing, good food (cooking and eating), and playing with my dog, Chip.
