Laura Boyden, LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist

I graduated from Lakeside School of Massage in 2012.  As a Massage Therapist, I encourage and help people to care for and appreciate their body and life. The connection between mind, soul and body is intertwined to make the masterpiece that is uniquely you.  Take time for meditation, reflection or prayer, to explore new ideas, and seek new life experiences.  When we keep our bodies toned and healthy we avoid the fundamental imbalances that impact our wellbeing.  Massage therapy helps to awaken, renew and restore that life giving balance. Consider making massage a part of your healthy ways.

I offer Swedish, deep tissue and many other modalities that are geared to my clients needs and preferences.  I incorporate hot and cold stone as well as hydrotherapy and aromatherapy for variety and personal treatments.  My clients experience greater health and wellbeing, relief and quicker recovery from injury or illness. See www.kittherapy.com for rates and more. 

 

Chair Massage

Want to treat your family, group or employees to the healthy benefits of chair massage?  No problem I will travel to my clients home or business upon request.

Massage shouldn't be a luxury, I view it as a necessity to help you deal with the toll life takes on your mind, body, and Spirit.  My goals are you make you feel better, alleviate your aches and pains, quiet the thoughts swirling in your mind, and have someone focus on YOU!

I am new member of the Catalyst Wellness team, I graduated out of Herzing University in Brookfield, WI; nationally certified and a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).  I know the power of touch through massage as I have experienced it with my history of migraines, bringing me to this field.  Through my experience in Swedish, hot stone, deep tissue, prenatal massage, connective tissue and trigger point release, hot/cold hydrotherapy; together we will design a massage that will meet your personal needs.  

I am engaged to Scott, the love of my life, and we have blended a family of four children: Daniel, Shannon, Lauren, and Travis.  We keep busy by trying to keep up with the activities our children participate in, from the sidelines of a softball or football field to the crazy pods of robotics competitions and the lanes of the bowling alleys.  

When long days at work and taking care of your family are taking a tole on your mind, body, and spirit.  I know what you are going through, and am eager to massage your stress and tension away.  Schedule an appointment today and RELAX, REFRESH, RENEW. Time to take care of you!
