Meet Laura

I enjoy being outdoors, being active and living a healthy lifestyle. I have two daughters, one who played softball at the collegiate level. My daughter sustained an injury, which set me on a course which would change my life: massage therapy.

I want to heal people through therapeutic massage and without, or with minimal, prescription.

I received my massage therapy certification in 2017. I’ve performed therapeutic massage techniques to ensure patients feel better than when they arrived. I believe in wellness without prescriptions to manage pain. I offer personalized plans for all patients and always ask questions to find the root of the issue-causing problems.

Laura McIntosh

I received my certification in manual lymph drain (MLD) in 2021 and followed up with MLD for post-op in 2022. The body can begin to heal itself, given the chance. MLD gives the body what it needs to restore back to normal.

Professionalism and personalization are most important to me. I care about every patient who comes to me. I want to nurture all patients back to their best selves.

“My mission is to deliver quality massages, wellness and recovery treatment to each and every patient. My desire is to provide treatment and relief, thereby allowing the patient to heal and recover without prescriptions.”

Laura is my go-to girl for massage. I’ve been coming to Laura for several years. She always finds my knots and tightness and gets me back to feeling normal. If you haven’t received a massage from Laura, you need to book an appointment today.

Laura has helped me recover from my vigorous softball schedule. Shoulder, hips, hands, and hamstrings are always what hurt on me.  After my massage, I can walk easier, throw the ball without pain and have a general overall good feeling. Cupping has been incredibly successful in loosening up my tight shoulders and back.  When I had a blood cyst behind my knee, manual lymph drain helped in my recovery. I felt so much better after just the first appointment. I know the 5 treatments of manual lymph drain helped my recovery a ton.

I’ve been seeing Laura for massage, about every three weeks, for many years.  She works out the sore spots and I always leave feeling so much better. My job requires me to be on my feel quite a bit, my shoulder has given me pain for a long time. I look forward to my massage appointments because I know I’ll leave feeling so much better.

Amazing! I have been a client for about 3 years. I look forward to each session as pain and stress relief. I have arrived at sessions in pain and left pain free. I suppose that sounds unlikely but is true. Laura's massage methods, and advice for follow-up stretch and self-massage have helped immensely.
