“It is an honor to connect with you, thank you for Being. My name is Laura Waite, I am a mother of two, a small business owner, and a proud resident of Costa Rica. This is my home and I welcome you. I am grateful to be a part of your journey.
My first goal as a facilitator is to establish trust, this enhances the intuitively guided experience that is tailored to meet the highest benefit of YOUR needs. I will help you to slow down, to become fully present, and to connect with source within. From there, you surrender and become your own best healer by opening up and receiving at a deeper level. This starts with the heart.” ~ Laura

Intuitive Therapeutic Massage and Lightbody Work:
As a Certified Massage Therapist since 2007 and Lightbody Worker since 2012, 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 energy work. She also may thread in CranioSacral, Trigger Point Therapy, Shiatsu, and Myofascial techniques. When invited, Reiki may be included at the end for a final harmonization of the chakras. Laura 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 in 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, which brings more balance to the chakras (energy centers). 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, transmute, or release. By dissolving tension and stress in all layers of the body, you slowly move from density to Lightbody.
Laura often includes dialogue/verbal channeling when it’s invited and when spirit allows. It depends on how actively you wish to participate, what will best serve your highest good, and how deeply you trust the experience. There will be plenty of space for silence, relaxation, and tuning inward to one’s own wisdom.
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 upgrade in one, you will walk away renewed.
What is Lightbody/Lightworker?
“The Lightbody is a higher dimensional body of light which contains our Divine Image as a perfect being. It is also our Merkabah, your vehicle of Light for ascending to the higher dimensions. A Lightworker is a facilitator that has the awareness, focused ability and responsibility to act as a clear, grounded channel for the Light. Lightworkers feel an enormous pull towards helping others. These spiritual beings volunteer to act as a beacon for the Earth, and commit to serving humanity.” ~ Laura & What Is Lightbody by Tashira Tachi-ren
As a Lightworker, Laura connects with a 100% pure divine light energy source to guide her during the healing sessions. 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 and it is able to integrate into the massage experience allowing the lightwork to be hands-on. Subtle work allows the chakras to come into more balance as we clear mental and emotional blockages which are often the root of physical pain. Light energy also penetrates down to a cellular level, giving you an energetic Lightbody activation or upgrade as lower vibrational energy clears out.
Laura received, integrated, and practiced Lightbody work with her teacher Kent Ewing in Dana Point, CA for 3 years. In this time she learned to fully protect herself and clients, working with only a 100% pure divine light source. Light travels fast, therefore Lightbody work can be facilitated in many ways including hands-on in unison with physical bodywork. Laura also is a Certified Master Reiki practitioner (Usui), which she will utilize as a tool in session only if called, as Reiki is a compliment to Lightbody work. Usually this will occur at the end of the session to do a final harmonization of the chakras or used simply around the crown of head and face as we close, which is facilitated hands-off. However, Lightbody work can also be channeled hands-off, creating a blend of enhancing energies that represent the colorful spectrum of the Light.
Laura works with the 12 major chakra system. Our chakras are energy centers that become blocked or overactive from mental stress and emotional trauma which can lead to physical distress and health ailments. By helping to heal and clear the imbalances, the chakras come into better alignment and the flow of chi energy increases. This gives space to upgrade your Lightbody, your higher dimensional body, or Merkabah. Laura has the ability and experience to be a channel for this magnificent work.
Regardless of training, Laura became aware of her connection to a pure light source at a very young age. It is one of her gifts to share with you. It is accessible to each of us if we slow down to listen and connect. This is “home,” source is our true, authentic Self. Laura’s work is designed to help you remember this natural state of being, but it is there waiting for YOU to unlock the remembrance at anytime. Developing this connection requires trust, practice, and an open heart. It is not far away, it’s right inside of you!
What is “The Light?”
The Light is unconditional love from a 100% pure divine source. That’s it.
As a seasoned intuitive, Laura has the permission and clear channel to work with the angelic (Archangels), shamanic (elements, animals, ancestors) and galactic (star systems) realms, which includes Ascended Masters. Laura connects purely with unity consciousness and does not discriminate its form. She does not decide who shows up, that is guided by a higher source of both wisdom and protection and overseen by Archangel Metatron, Laura’s main guide. Metatron is a gatekeeper and works with the Akashic records, assuring that each session will be specifically designed for your highest good. Laura may or may not be informed who is assisting, for she is there to be a channel for the high light frequency which is enough. Therefore, it is easier to simply call the connection “the Light,” as all of these aspects are embodiments of a 100% pure divine light source. This allows the receiver to interpret the experience in the comfort of their own terminology. If this verbiage does not resonate, define Light in your own terms. How you connect is where we will meet, the sessions are guided by a higher will not personal will.
Laura’s work is non-denominational. She sees all these pathways connecting with light source as colors of the same rainbow. Each color represents a creative expression of the wholeness and oneness of a 100% pure divine light source. After all, light is made up of wavelengths of light, and each wavelength is a particular color. Visualize a glass prism, when the white light passes through a rainbow of colors shine from the other side, this is light being distributed. Each session will have a unique color design for you, like a Mandala.
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. As a seasoned therapist, I specialize in going beyond the physical elements to allow the light energy to channel through and do the deeper, more subtle work. This allows for a more “whole body” or holistic experience addressing the physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spirit bodies.” ~Laura
