Laura Hale is a Registered Massage Therapist who believes in the healing power of touch.
She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Trent University. Then she migrated to Victoria to pursue her dream of becoming a Registered Massage Therapist.
Laura enjoys the broad scope of practice massage can offer. From working with acute or chronic soft-tissue and musculoskeletal injuries, to working with patients with the purpose of decreasing anxiety and increasing quality of life.
To this end, she emphasizes preventative care and uses an integrative approach with all her patients. This is done by combining massage therapy with therapeutic exercise, as well as customized home care instructions based on each individual’s needs. This approach recognizes immediate and long-term health care goals for all her patients that is based on performing a comprehensive health history and assessment.
Furthermore, Laura’s treatments take place in a safe and body-positive space. Body shape, size, amputations, scars, injuries, orientation, and gender identity should not prevent anyone from seeking treatment.
Laura’s focus is on:
- Jaw Pain
- Acute and chronic conditions
- Over-use injuries
- Low back pain
- Pre and post-natal care
- Breast Massage
- Anxiety and Stress relief
Laura uses deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger-point release, and assisted stretching to facilitate healing of the body.
She is now welcoming new patients to her practice and is looking forward to meeting you.
