My name is Lara. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Licensed Esthetician. I have been practicing massage therapy for 5 years and esthetics for 3 years. I am a graduate of the Atlanta School of Massage and the Euro Institute of Skin Care. I also went on to complete advanced training in esthetics at the Washington Laser Institute. After working in spas in the Seattle area for several years, I decided to move to Vashon Island and start my own practice doing in-home massage therapy and waxing. I see clients both in the greater Seattle area and on Vashon Island.
Treatments I offer include Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue and Neuromuscular Therapy (assessing and treating various trigger points), Prenatal Massage, Reflexology, and Aromatherapy. I am able to combine different treatment modalities to give you a truly unique and customizable massage depending on what your goals are for the session. I have experience in Deep Tissue and treatment work, helping people recover from injuries and also have extensive experience working in spas and know how to give an excellent Swedish Massage to help you relax and unwind. I also offer waxing services. Take a look at the Services and Rates page to learn more.
For fun, I like to garden and volunteer on organic farms. My other passion in life is making candles, soap, and skin care products. Last summer I had an opportunity to help make skin care products for a lavender store and farm on Whidbey Island. It was a wonderful experience and some day I hope to make my own skin care product line (so stay tuned for updates!). Thank you for visiting and I'm looking forward to meeting you :)
