Totally cool – You listen – you think- then you go to work.

Thanks for the great work last week. My shoulder has not felt this loose in years. I can't wait to have you do more work and flush out all the bad stuff.

I wanted to write to tell you …what fantastic body work you did on me. My chiropractor didn't even have to adjust my neck when I saw him, unheard of.

The first thing I liked about Laura is that she takes her work seriously. She has studied anatomy extensively and makes detailed notes on my specific problems and treatments, which she refers to and updates each session.
Her academic knowledge of the body is matched with hands-on skill. Laura has an uncanny ability to find the root sources of tension and release them. Through sense of touch alone, she was able to identify specific points that were causing me vague pain. She gives a customized massage that I've never experienced elsewhere. I put a lot of trust in her abilities and recommend her wholeheartedly!
I cannot believe how much my neck improved after seeing you on Sunday. I would not have believed it possible!
Thank you so much.

Laura has a way of making me feel like she truly cares about understanding and accurately treating my unique problem.
(I)…feel like you really want to know how to best help me and that is so important to me.
Anyway, I feel that you definitely got onto something yesterday and wanted to tell you how I felt the rest of the day and night. As I mentioned, my knee felt totally different in the places you spent the most time than the areas that didn’t get as much (inside versus outside surfaces). As the day progressed, I could tell that something was different because I felt as though the area around the patella was “more awake”. In other words, I felt like the nerves in my knee area were saying “hey we can still work”. I have experienced the nerves in areas of my other injuries “learning” but to date haven’t had much in my left knee.

Thanks again for today's session… lots of sensations… everything from energy streaming through the body, to things feeling like they were waking up, to feeling absolute calm and bliss. Very interesting.

I am a 45 year old recreational vehicle technician that survived a car accident in which I cracked a vertibre, have had two back surgeries and am an advocate of the "rub some dirt on it" tough it out method of rehabilitation. massage therapy wasn't my first thought when trying to recover from a severely torn muscle in my lower back. However, laura worked on my back and I not only noticed an increase in my mobility, but a decrease in pain. My muscle healed faster and I was back to work in no time. Thanks.

Laura has a great awareness of the body and can sense the source of imbalance underneath. She is skilled, sensitive and very effective.

I had great results.

Also went to dr. He confirmed what you said about my foot. And it is getting better especially after your massage!

THANK YOU so much for your wonderful massages, as you know, w/ the lifestyle that I live, your hands are magical to me & I always feel great after a session w/ you!
Laura was very concerned about my current condition, needs, and future goals… (she) was extremely personal and caring, yet professional at the same time!

I felt better with your treatment than anyone’s.

I personally believe it’s important to disclose the impetus behind comments in order to factor in to what degree they were solicited. The comments to the left are a combination of spontaneous emails received; comments written on a general mailing questionnaire I sent out and in response to an email offering to print peoples’ experiences; and in one case, a person’s response to a direct request I made that he share his experience. Ironically, and this is just an interesting tangent, what that person wrote was not what I had expected. Recovering from a back injury, he had been unable to bend over to tie his shoes prior to the session without incredible pain. Directly afterwards, he was able to do it with significantly diminished pain and greater ease. Though he did not mention this clear, direct, measurable result, he was kind enough to write something and his comments were positive, as was his experience.
I found Laura Cohen, CNMT, through the NMT Center website. An expert in trigger point massage therapy, Laura Cohen understands anatomy, physiology, and trigger point therapy at a level far above what I saw among the physical therapists and physicians whom I have seen. Laura helped to eliminate a number of problems which have caused me pain for years. I feel certain that had I been treated by Laura during the early stages of my problems, an operation and years of use of pain medications and muscle relaxers could have been avoided.
