Laurie Hayden is a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki Practitioner. Laurie was introduced to massage therapy through a recovery regimen from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and HPA Axis Dysfunction.  Amazed at the impact body and energy work had on her healing, she decided to become a massage therapist herself.  She believes wholeheartedly that massage therapy is a powerful healing tool for the body, mind and spirit.  Laurie studied massage therapy at Panacea School of Integrative Health in Hallowell, Maine. Laurie works to slowly engage with the body to assess what it needs. While firm pressure is her strength, relaxation and comfort are always her goal. Through compassionate and caring listening, she works collaboratively with each client to address individual needs.  Her intuitive approach creates the ideal environment for your body to unwind. She addresses both physical and energetic issues, gently guiding your body towards peace, balance and relaxation.

All massage services include everything you need for relaxation, rejuvenation, healing and transformation.  Each massage is customized to what your goals are for the session and may include the use of essential oils, heat treatment, warm towels and cupping therapy where needed at no additional charge.  These services are complimentary to ensure the ultimate massage experience.

Services by Laurie

Relaxation Massage

A smooth, gentle, flowing style of massage that uses your preferred pressure to promote general relaxation, relieve muscle tension, improve circulation and flexibility, decrease muscle toxins and leave you with that “ahhhhh...I needed that” feeling.


Therapeutic Massage

In this session, we will work together with a shared goal of structural changes within the body, generally over a series of regular massages. Through a combination of Swedish and Deep Tissue techniques along with Trigger Point Therapy where needed, your body will be able to relax while still experiencing the benefits of deep muscle work. Expected outcomes include improved range of motion, decreased pain sensation, improved posture, and aiding soft-tissue healing.
