Lauren has been involved in the health and wellness fields since 1999 and is a licensed massage therapist, certified yoga instructor, and birth doula in the state of Kentucky. She is the founder and director of Centered, a holistic community center, where she has her private massage practice and teaches yoga. She is also an instructor at the Lexington Healing Arts Academy.
Following her studies in psychology and fine arts at the University of Kentucky, Lauren found her passion for healing during her Aikido training where she was first exposed to Tai Chi and Shiatsu. She attended the Lexington Healing Arts Academy in 2001 and, upon graduation, began her private practice. She incorporates her trainings in Cranio Sacral Therapy, Movement Re-Education, Shiatsu and Vedic Thai Massage with clients of all ages and conditions. She became a certified Baby’s First Massage instructor in 2003 and is also certified in prenatal, labor and post partum bodywork. She has advanced training in pediatric massage and enjoys teaching wellness classes to children ages 3 to 13 (including her own two boys) as well as Women’s Wisdom Yoga class.
Lauren offers one-on-one baby massage sessions, certification training for RN’s, LMT’s and Doula’s, post partum awareness workshops, individual birthing prep classes as well as therapeutic sessions for adults through her private practice. She has also worked with and given lectures in many local hospitals, colleges and corporate settings. Her ultimate intention in this work is to create a safe environment for each person she encounters so that they may be free and open to learning, growing, and healing through all the stages of life.
