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.

Neil, Alloy Wheel Refurbisher.


"Laura's massages are the best I've ever had. The first time I had one, I felt fantastic for the rest of the day, and slept that night as I imagine one would sleep on ones first night in Heaven. It was one of the most enjoyably therapeutic experiences of my life, and one which I will never forget. "

David, Property Manager.


"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!)"

Niccola, Mac Raw Chef and Bothma Gym Teacher. 


"Laura is gifted with an intuitive feel of working with the body's needs. She incorporates all of her formal training with this gift. It has been of great benefit to me over the years. I wish I could adopt her as my life long massage therapist!" 

Lucy, Teacher and Gardener.


"Having recently returned from a lengthy spell in hospital, Laura's invigorating massage brought some welcome strength back into my sad muscles!"

Claire, Actress and Singer.
