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.  I believe when we make the body a safer place to be, the world becomes a safer place as well.

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 long sessions. I find more time encourages more complete engagement with the mind-body connection and provides me the opportunity to work more deeply and impactfully.
