Laura Aldaine

It is my life's work to extend peace. To this end, all my sessions are focused on accessing presence, awareness, and individual integrity. 

My bodywork is slow and progressive: depth builds session over session as your body comes to trust my touch, and I come to know your body. To honor the body’s process, I focus on precision rather than force to provide touch that feels like healing.

I prefer providing two hour sessions. I find more time encourages more complete engagement with the mind-body connection and provides me the opportunity to work more deeply in the body.
