"A healing session with Lauren is Magical! She is focused, sensitive, perceptive and knowledgeable. When she treats me I feel like I am being knit back together and made whole. Her healing capacity and strategies are complex and effective. No matter what ailments I arrive with, shoulder and neck pain, fatigue, digestive issues, Lauren is able to relieve my discomfort and set me into a relaxed, peaceful state that often lasts for weeks. She is an accomplished and brilliant healer!" -Wendy, Acupuncturist, Cambridge

"I feel so lucky to have found Lauren. I had a wrist surgery that wasn't healing right and she told me she could help. Well, not only did she help heal the wrist but also worked on other wonky bits - a knee, an ankle, a shoulder - and a general weakness, all of which I'd attributed either to old injuries or to aging. But she took them all on and wow, what a difference! I had no idea Shiatsu could be effective for so many things. Now we're looking to help release an old phobia -another layer of pain. Fascinating! Lauren is a fearless explorer, trying all kinds of Shiatsu and acupressure techniques in search of easing her clients' pain and injury, layer by layer. She's absolutely amazing to work with." -Barbara, Yoga Instructor, Watertown
