Laura is the owner of Mandorla Massage and is based in Motueka, where she lives with her family. She is passionate about massage and has been working in the field since 2004.
Her treatments are unique, in that they incorporate different techniques. Each session is adapted to the individual's needs at that time, treating deep tension resulting from acute or chronic conditions and creating a state of deep relaxation.
Her clients range from athletes training for major events, ladies in late pregnancy wanting relief and support, to stressed out office workers needing a soothing relaxation massage.
Due to having such a comprehensive skill set, Laura is able to adapt to the variety of cases with which she is presented on a daily basis.
No matter what your age, shape, fitness or health, a treatment plan can be personalised to exactly what you need. Any health issues or other specifications will be addressed in the initial consultation to insure you get the best treatment for you.
'Since being introduced to Mandorla Massage my health has improved quite considerably. Laura's ability to put you at ease as well as providing a professional and personalised massage is simply quite wonderful'.
'Excellent massage, very intuitive and focused right where you need. Laura is personable and lovely to deal with, highly recommended! 5 Stars!'
'Every time I have a massage with Laura I feel she tunes in to my needs and I feel totally nourished afterwards. Some of the moves she does are deeply powerful yet gentle at the same time. She works very intuitively and I feel so cared for and very relaxed. (I love the music too...and the warm massage couch!)'
'Simply fabulous!!! After suffering with back pain for months I went to Laura to get some relief. Very quickly into the massage she found areas of tightness and addressed them. I couldn't believe the difference she made in a very short time. Lovely, personable lady with amazing knowledge. Totally recommend Laura. We will certainly be returning to her next time we are in Motueka'.
'My husband and I spent a lovely weekend in Motueka while a friend had our kids. We really needed some down time. My massage with Laura was one of the highlights of the weekend. It was relaxing but also deep tissue in parts which I love. I was left feeling truly relaxed and even fell asleep at the end. Do yourself a favour and get in touch with Laura if you need some ‘’me’’ time!'
'Laura was very kind and gave a fantastic sports massage. When we finished she even took the time to show me diagrams of where my muscle soreness was and gave me advice on how to prevent injury in the future'.
'I had the most amazing massage yesterday. Laura listened to what my trouble spots were and really helped all my aches and pains and also made me feel super comfortable and relaxed the whole time. I highly recommend anyone wanting a massage for relaxation or healing to go and see Laura at Mandorla Massage'.
'Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing, rejuvenating massage. Laura is so receptive and present with her work, and really knew exactly what I needed! Magic hands!! I’m seriously looking forward to seeing Laura again soon!'
