What are you proud of in your practice?
Laura helps you recognize the messages from your body, empowering you to make changes in your daily life that improve your health & wellbeing.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
Treating stress has become a focus of Laura’s practice, as over the years she’s seen more and more patients suffering both physiologically and emotionally from chronic stress. It’s easy to downplay the severity of the impact it can have on our body (immune system, endocrine system, central nervous system), yet chronic stress is a precursor & provoker for so many conditions. Laura supports you in managing stress in your life. Cosmetic acupuncture is a joy to practice because while you receive a treatment for body & mind, you also enjoy spa-like experience that can have lasting results for your skin & appearance.
