“My left hip had bothered me on and off for years. I had been going to the chiropractor for several weeks, and then I switched to physically therapy. The trips to the chiropractor were initially helpful, but I felt like I wasn’t learning anything about my body mechanics that would help me make changes and bring awareness to the way I was moving in my daily life. I needed to do something different that would help me gain some ground rehabbing this hip.
In my first session with Laura, I learned so much about what muscles were over working and which were not working much at all. It made so much sense. It was so eye opening, and I was excited to learn about my body in this way.
In subsequent sessions I learned so much more. Laura’s approach of guiding you through an investigation is why you walk away from these sessions more mindful about your body. This was a much different approach than my other treatment experiences for my hip. My hip pain is now under control, and I didn’t have to completely stop my activities. I learned how to listen to my body, but keep moving.
Both my kids have been in speech therapy, and the approach is to train the parent so they can incorporate the techniques into everyday interactions with their child. I feel like that’s what I got out of my sessions with Laura. She taught me about my injury/pain and body mechanics in a way that I can apply in my everyday life (from my exercise routine to standing at my desk).
Laura is one of the most mindful people I’ve ever met. I love working with her. Anyone ready to be more mindful about their body or ready to try something different to alleviate pain – I absolutely recommend yoga therapy with Laura.”– Steph w.
