Visit Certified Massage Therapist Laurie Weber to Improve Your Health & Well-Being
Massage is a “hands-on” treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress and evoke feelings of calmness. Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.
In general, massage is believed to support healing, boost energy, reduce recovery time after an injury, ease pain and enhance relaxation, mood and well-being. It is useful for many musculoskeletal problems such as low back pain, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, sprains and strains. Massage may also relieve depression in people with chronic fatigue syndrome, ease chronic constipation (when the technique is performed in the abdominal area), alleviate sleep disorders and improve self-image.

Meet Our Certified Massage Therapist Laurie Weber, ART, CMT
After 15 years in the fitness industry, Laurie realized her passion for massage therapy while undergoing her own personal physical recovery after a back injury. She credits ART, acupuncture and a variety of bodywork techniques to help her return to an active lifestyle pain free. This life event challenged and motivated her to discover the world of soft tissue therapeutics to help people recover, keep injuries at bay and relieve the stress of everyday life. This new passion was the driving force behind her switch to the healing and restoration aspect of wellness through massage techniques. “It is a constant learning process sharpening my techniques and assessment skills. It makes my day when someone can move pain free from a precision therapy session, (like with ART, deep tissue and NMT) or has the ‘massage glow’ from total relaxation with circulatory and deep tissue massage” she commented.
