When you love what you do, you never go to work!
Hello, my name is Laura Morledge. I am a Montana Licensed Massage Therapist #5872, Trained in Swedish and Deep Tissue, Lympatic, a Certified Arvigo® Practitioner of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, Arvigo® Advanced Pregnancy Practitioner, Pre and Peri-Natal Massage Specialist – Carol Osborn Group. An International Loving Touch Foundation’s Certified Infant Massage Instructor, and a Reiki III practitioner, trained in Usui tradition by Vicka Lanier and a Theta trained practitioner by Dr. David Flaten, Sacred Lomi training by Tom Coohran, and Cranio Sacral – Upledger.
In the early 1980s, I received massage training from a wonderful man who was in his eighties. He had practiced massage therapy for his entire life. Back then, massage therapists mentored with a master and then moved on into their own business. This man emphasized the fluidity of the body and the use of acupressure with massage. I enjoyed giving massage and continued to massage family and friends, but never sought out an exam or a certificate. In 2012, I decided to go back to massage school and become certified, so that I could combine the Reiki and Theta that I had learned along the way with the healing power of touch. I graduated from the Yellowstone Institute of Massage Therapy in 2013, with a 600-hour certification. My educational focus was on anatomy & physiology, therapeutic massage techniques, ethical responsibilities, sanitation guidelines and business mastery.
As a Certified Arvigo® Advanced Pregnancy Practitioner and Certified Prenatal and Perinatal Massage Therapist Specialist, I bring comprehensive pregnancy knowledge and a nurturing touch to ensure an exceptional maternity massage experience.
I strive to help the body recognize where it needs to do its work, instead of trying to force my will upon it. I use touch, warming massage, prayer, Reiki and Theta to help the body move itself back into a perfect state of fluidity.
On a personal level, I embrace a holistic lifestyle by keeping my body fit and my mind active and engaged, practicing daily yoga, hiking, running, swimming and cycling. I feel learning is a lifelong process, so I am continually expanding my knowledge base for massage, yoga and healthy living. I live with my loving husband, Karl and Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Happy. Together we enjoy our four children and seven grandchildren.
As a Registered Yoga Teacher 500hrRYT, 200-E-RYT, Kundalini Yoga Level 1, with 375hrs extra hours of LifeForce Yoga training and 20hr of Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, I strive to bring happiness, peace and joy to the body, mind and spirit with not only the asana – postures/movement of yoga, but also meditation, Bija sounds – seed sounds, Pranayama – breath, Chanting – singing, Sankalpa – intention, Bhavana – meaningful images, and Yoga Nidra – yogic sleep, a form of meditative self-inquiry.
Rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit with a relaxing massage in this healing environment.
