Laurie has a strong, comprehensive background in allopathic and alternative medicine as a registered nurse for over 25 years. She holds a Master’s degree in nursing, certification as an Anthroposophic Nurse Specialist and Rhythmical Einreibungen, training in Therapeutic Touch, as well as being a certified BodyTalkTM practitioner. Her training in Therapeutic Touch allows her to work energetically with clients to minimize pain and promote healing. Anthroposophic nursing gives her a view, as a health professional, of the human being as not just a physical body, but as soul and spirit as well, and how health is impacted by all these factors.
Laurie's training as an Anthroposophic (Wisdom of the Human Being) Nurse allows her to bring balance to body, mind and spirit with the use of gentle, rhythmical oil application, or the use of botanical compresses to reduce the imbalances that may have impacts on our physical or emotional wellbeing.
Laurie's BodyTalkTM training includes all of the Advanced Modules, PaRama 1 and 2, Eastern Medicine, Structural Integration, BodyEcology, and Evolve Epigenetics. Laurie's enthusiasm for BodyTalkTM comes from her own positive experiences with the BodyTalk System. She has noticed not only more energy and better physical health, but also greater clarity and awareness. The consciousness aspect of the system supports healing on all levels of the body and mind, as well as a greater connection to Spirit.
She enjoys working with a wide variety of people, ages and health goals and is enthusiastic about supporting clients through the many changes of life at the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
In addition, Laurie is a BodyTalkTM Access trainer. Access is a one day course geared at teaching simple techniques that can be done at home. This wellness routine is designed to support a sense of well being and support mind-body balance.
In May 2022, Laurie completed training as a Psychosynthesis Life Coach. Psychosynthesis is a dynamic style of coaching designed as a path of of exploration of the true self and claiming self empowerment.
Psychosynthesis is a method of psychological development and self realization for those who refuse to remain the slave of their own inner phantasms or of external influences, who refuse to submit passively to the play of psychological forces which is going on within them, and who are determined to become the master of their own lives. - Roberto Assagioli
She also leads conversations on the Divine Feminine and on the impact of Soul and Spirit on physical and emotional wellbeing.
