About Laura:

Laura’s goal is to establish trust, allowing for an intuitively guided experience that is to the highest benefit of your needs. She helps you to slow down, become fully present and to connect with source. From there, you surrender and become your own best healer, by receiving at a deeper level. Laura is a guide, her genuine presence and loving energy flow from her experience and passion for the healing arts. By connecting with a pure light energy source for each session, she assists you in remembering who you truly are by simply guiding you back to center.

Laura graduated from the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy in 2007 in Playa Samara, and began her professional journey in California. Her detailed study of yoga, Lightbody energy work and Reiki became infused in her path as a massage therapist. At the end of 2012, Laura relocated to Samara, Costa Rica and established Mandala Massage and Yoga.

Laura’s dedication to yoga practice and self-healing sharpened her awareness and sensitivity to her own nature and to others. She facilitates from a deep place of love, compassion and truth. It’s an honor for her to be a part of your journey.


Intuitive Therapeutic Massage and Lightbody Work:

As a certified massage therapist since 2007 and a yoga teacher since 2010, Laura’s experience and expertise transfer through her hands and her voice. She is an intuitive facilitator, and her healing sessions are a combination of therapeutic massage guided by light energy work. Laura creates a bridge between the physical and subtle bodies.

Enjoy a powerful therapeutic massage session guided by intuition and experience, and enhanced by the flow of chi energy. Laura specializes in combining deep tissue work, flowing Swedish strokes, and Lightbody work. She also may include CranioSacral, Trigger Point Therapy, Shiatsu, and Reiki techniques.  She uses her intuition to adapt to the needs of each client, acting as a guide along the journey. The session can be deep or light pressure or somewhere in between, depending on your needs. Whether or not you feel energy, you will have an enhancing healing experience and may open up new ways. You are in trusting hands regardless.

Laura understands that the body is a physical doorway to access the more subtle layers within us, which is why she combines the lightwork with massage. By addressing other elements beyond the physical, there is an opportunity for deeper healing. As an empath, Laura can often feel the clients buried or stuck emotions as well as mental tension stored in the body. She helps to move or unroot these blockages to create more flow and space within the body. When you address the deeper challenges underneath the surface, it softens the muscle tissue making it easier to massage and to release tension. Equally, when the client surrenders to the experience, lower vibrational energy has more opportunity to rise up and release. By dissolving tension and stress, you slowly move from density to lightbody. 

Sometimes Laura includes verbal channeling when it’s invited, nothing is forced. It depends on how actively the client wishes to participate. Overall, you will release muscle tension, deeply relax, calm the mind, open the heart, and come into a space of clarity and presence. This is a full body massage and a full energetic realignment in one, you will walk away renewed.


What is Lightbody/Lightworker?

The awareness, focused ability and responsibility to act as a channel for the light. As a Lightworker, Laura connects with a pure light energy source to guide her during the healing sessions as well as in life. By inviting in the light, she is able to work with a higher frequency that protects, purifies, and enhances the healing process. The channeled energy directs her when she facilitates and she directs it based on the highest good for all.

Laura received, studied and practiced Lightbody work with her teacher Kent Ewing in Dana Point, CA for 3 years. She also is a certified Master Reiki practitioner, but prefers to work predominantly with the Light. Regardless of training, Laura has been aware of her connection to a pure light source since a young age. It is accessible to each of us if we slow down to listen and connect. As a seasoned intuitive, Laura has a defined relationship and works closely with the angelic and shamanic realms, but prefers to simple call this connection “the light.” This allows the receiver to interpret the experience in the comfort of their own terminology. Honored to be a facilitator, Laura recognizes that each individual is his or her own best healer, she considers it a privilege to be of assistance.

“Over the years the clients have been my most informative teachers. It is an honor to be invited in as a facilitator to an intimate and sometimes vulnerable healing space during each session. The more the client and I are able to establish a connection of trust, the deeper we are able to work together on an energetic level. I prefer to move beyond the physical elements to allow the light energy to channel through and do the deeper, more subtle work.” ~Laura
