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.
Tai Sheie, Lymphatic Therapist ~ Massage Therapist ~ Bowen Therapy ~ Esthetician
I remain committed and passionately focused in the pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the amazing artistry and complexity of the human body and am excited to now add Lymphatic Therapy to my knowledge base. It is my goal to empower and help clients look and feel their best, remain active, and optimize health, wellness and performance – at any age.
I graduated from a multi-disciplinary massage school in 2000 and was so fortunate to get a dream job with a top rated and world class spa in Las Vegas upon completion of my studies. The practical side of that job was exposure to all sorts of clientele- public figures in all realms of celebrity and sport, as well as those in search of a respite and relaxation.
Relocation to Northern California afforded another opportunity in an amazing destination resort and spa. I also worked with an established second generation local chiropractic office. This shift and addition gave me a more clinical knowledge and approach to bodywork.
The panhandle of Florida was the next stop and more training and education followed. It was back to massage school for a refresher and additional hours in Florida specific curriculum requirements, anatomy and physiology, facial massage, as well as others.
I also embarked on a once in a lifetime trip to Northern Thailand, where I immersed myself in the culture and tradition of Thai Massage. The intensive study also deepened my understanding of the philosophies that guide acupuncture, acupressure, Shiatsu, and marma points of Ayurveda. There were also seminars in facial and body treatments, foot massage, herbal ball massage for the face and body, and identifying and using natural ingredients for use in skin and body treatment preparations.
Florida beckoned again in 2009 and the location this time was Tampa. As I got re-acclimated, I became aware of Bowen therapy and instantly fell in love with the work as a therapist and fast tracked through the curriculum to certification in 2011. I also took every opportunity and additional Bowen class to gain a better technical proficiency and understanding from peers and a variety of instructors.
I became a certified Yoga instructor with the completion of a 200 hour yoga teacher training in March 2014 as well as introductory and refresher courses in Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) and John Upledger’s amazing body of work known as CranialSacral Therapy (CST).
