Lauren is a licensed massage therapist and natural therapeutics specialist, as well as a certified yoga instructor. She is a graduate of the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics where she is still involved and practices her business, Synaesthetic Bodywork. Lauren is an artist and dancer and takes her love of creativity into her work. She practices integrative massage therapy and approaches the Healing Arts as a flow art, working in active receptivity with the energies and needs of the body. She integrates energetic modalities such as Core Synchronism, Craniosacral, and Windows of the Sky, with physical modalities including Myofascial Release and general Swedish and sports massage techniques. She is inspired by her studies of both Western and Eastern philosophies and brings those ideas into her practice. Lauren believes in the Holistic approach to healing, with everything being interconnected. All the information we receive from our bodies is meaningful, and when we learn to listen and understand those messages, we begin the process of healing ourselves. The body is infinitely wise and is its own true healer. Bodyworkers and therapists create the opportunity and hold the space for that healing to take place. Lauren believes that everything we experience is an opportunity to connect with ourselves, to go deeper, and to tune into our own body’s wisdom, so that we may begin the journey of healing.
