Owner/Operator of Spirit of the Bluffs
Hi, I'm Laura. I am a Professionally Trained Transformational Life Coach, Registered Nurse and Licensed Massage Therapist.
My interest in complimentary and alternative medicine began in the late 1970's when I began studying natural foods and nutritional healing. I began my formal education in nursing in the '80s, graduating from University of Arkansas, Fort Smith in 1988. My nursing experience has been primarily in the ER with additional experience in Home Health & Hospice.
I took Level I of Healing Touch in Nashville, TN in 1999, opening a new realm of healing experience. Following my passion for holistic health and a decade long dream, I enrolled in Exceptional Massage Institute in Hot Springs, Arkansas in 2005. In 2006, I furthered my study of massage and energy work at Body Wellness Therapeutic Massage Academy in Benton, Arkansas and became a licensed massage therapist in the State of Arkansas in June, 2006. After graduation, I opened my private practice, Spirit Mountain Massage, providing therapeutic massage, spa treatments, energy work and vibroacoustic therapy for 9 years in my second home town of Mena, Arkansas.
Following grandchildren, I returned to the midwest in the Summer of 2014 and opened Spirit of the Bluffs in Council Bluffs, Iowa February, 2015.
My passion for holistic health & wellness is ongoing and my training includes Oncology Massage, Levels I & II Healing Touch, Reiki Levels I & II, Barefoot (Ashiatisu) Massage, Vibroacoustic Therapy, Herbology and Aromatherapy. I am certified in Geriatric Massage and currently hold massage licensure in the states of Iowa, Nebraska and Arkanasas.
In 2015 I graduated from an 11-month International Coaching Federation-approved Coach Certification program at Transform Coaching Academy under the instruction of Dr. Eve Agee. I completed a year-long mentorship in 2016 and an additional 8-month Master Class incorporating Inner Child and Shamanic work in 2017.
Transformational Life Coaching allows me to offer my clients a deeper level of spiritual and emotional wellness and empowerment.
Professional associations include membership in the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, American Holistic Nursing Association and Healing Beyond Borders.
The sacred work of Transformational Life Coaching, Massage, Bodywork and Energy Work are my passion, as is assisting you, my client. I look forward to working with you to empower and enrich your life.
