Laura Pettibone


Massage and Rehabilitative Therapy


I specialize in helping clients with injuries.  My approach often involves assessing muscle strength, strengthening weak muscles and releasing tight and torn muscles or tendons.  In many cases, I work with the patient to perform movements and exercises that will help normalize function and decrease pain.  I enjoy finding the patterns, and unraveling the puzzles, that our bodies can present, and from this understanding, treating each client to restore health, strength and balance to the body.


I have been practicing as a certified massage therapist since 1992.  I began my training at the Santa Barbara School of Massage, studying Swedish massage, sports massage, pregnancy massage and reflexology.  I have learned other effective techniques including orthopedic massage, craniosacral therapy, and neuromuscular reprogramming (nmr).


I have 450 hours of training.
