Laura works with adults, infants and children in her home office in Maple Grove and offers in-home treatment throughout the Twin Cities for certain cases as well. This gives families various pricing and schedule options and comfort levels, such as a new mother who should not leave their home yet and needs assistance for themselves or their infant. Laura also has had five apprentices train with her and are now working to serve all parts of the Twin Cities. Laura's background is in adult education and she loves teaching. Checkout her Events page to see how you can learn CST and Reiki for yourself! Fortunately, Laura was introduced to Reiki and craniosacral therapy at a young age and then through seeing the huge impact it could have during birth and with lactation, she decided to begin the training to support individuals in getting to the root cause of issues and find optimal well-being. She is a Usui Holy Fire III Reiki Master and is learning Reflexology. She is also offering the use of Healy frequency micro current devices. Learn more here!
