Laura Turley, Lymphatic Therapist ~ Massage Therapist ~ Life Coach
As a massage therapist, Laura specializes in lymphatic drainage and working with individuals who prefer a gentle touch. Her clients include seniors, people who suffer with chronic pain or post-surgical issues, individuals with limited mobility, as well as people who have felt ‘beaten up’ by previous therapists. They leave her sessions with reduced pain, increased mobility, an improved quality of life – and they feel listened to and well-cared for.
As a life coach, Laura works with middle-aged women who have lost a sense of identity & lack direction on how to move forward. She helps them ‘remember who they are’ so they feel empowered to make life choices that are fun, fulfilling and exciting. Laura conducts workshops and hosts virtual group coaching as well as 1:1 sessions.
Laura enjoyed a successful 30-year corporate career in the banking, brokerage and search industries. As she was approaching middle-age and contemplating the next chapter of her life, she longed for more personal fulfillment and had a strong desire to be of service to others. She realized that she has a special talent for helping people, both physically and emotionally, so she obtained her massage therapy license, and subsequently, her life coaching certification and became immersed in the health & wellness field. Laura works with individuals who feel stuck in one or more areas, and she offers customized solutions to empower them to make choices that enhance their health and well-being.
