Laura joyfully devotes her life to wellness in a variety of ways. She maintains five priorities: Always plan for a night of deep, restorative sleep, eat clean and know that food consumption is ultimately fuel for cellular health, move your body in ways that are fun and make you stronger, resolve self-limiting belief systems that hold you back, and explore methods that calm the heart and allow for emotional resiliency in times of challenge.

“An acupuncture session with Laura is unlike any other experience! I have received many acupuncture treatments from Laura, and can say it’s like a getting a massage for your whole system. My nervous system is stilled, my breath becomes fuller, my heart opens, and my body becomes light. Her acupuncture practice is truly a mind, body & spirit treatment!“
“Working with Laura has been a powerful experience. She has assisted me in healing deep patterns of behaviors and fears that I’ve carried for a lifetime. Shifting these old ways of being has had a profound impact on my life, and I have been able to access a much more empowered version of myself. When I first began seeing Laura I was so consumed by the stressors of life that I wondered how I would make it through the day. Now I am experiencing enjoyment raising my daughter, and have found the strength to start my own business. It’s been incredible to see the growth throughout our sessions.”
