Laura Levenhagen RN, WCMT, CST, BCTMB
My background is in traditional health care. I became a Registered Nurse in 1986 and worked in many areas of nursing; ER, clinic, hospital staff and charge nurse, home care and hospice. My work with hospice patients created an interest in a deeper spiritual realm - I learned from the dying what was really important about living. In 2000 I decided to pursue an avenue of health care that would empower individuals to get more in touch with their body and self-healing by becoming a massage therapist. In massage school I was exposed to the holistic benefits of CranioSacral therapy. It was there I discovered how to listen with my hands to the wisdom inside my clients' bodies and allowing this wisdom to guide me as I worked with them. In the last 17 years I've increased my skills through extensive training in the Upledger CranioSacral Therapy class curriculum. I am an Advanced-level CST practitioner and successfully completed the Techniques Certification Process. I am a support therapist for the Upledger Institute and Integrative Intentions in adult and pediatric 5-day Comprehensive Therapy Programs. Please see my Upledger Institute website: www.iahp.com/Laura-Levenhagen/
My intention is to help clients release deeply held tension patterns through CST and therapeutic massage, ease pain and stress, and support the body's natural healing process.
