Lauren has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for nearly 10 years. She graduated from Heritage College in Kansas City with an Associate Degree of Occupational Studies in Therapeutic Massage. She moved to Grand Junction in 2016 and opened her own business, Flourish Massage Therapy. Now, she has recently moved to Paonia for a fresh start!
Lauren is Colorado Licensed, NCBTMB Board Certified and insured through ABMP. She has experience working in multiple high-end spas and chiropractic offices where she focused on chronic pain management and injury recovery. She specializes in Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy, Medical Massage, and her new favorite – Prenatal/Postpartum and Infant Massage.
After going through the process of becoming a mother to twin boys, Lauren found a passion in helping moms get through the difficult prenatal / postpartum phase. After struggling with Post-Partum Depression herself, she is on a mission to help new moms understand the importance of self-care during this extremely challenging period of life. In addition, Lauren offers Infant Massage instruction where parents and caregivers learn how to effectively create a lasting bond through healthy touch with the young children in their life.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys teaching Zumba, singing karaoke, hiking, doing yoga and spending time outside with her boys. She’s very excited for her opportunity to live and work in Paonia and create a beautiful life here!
