Lauren is the owner of Portland Thai Massage, specializing in therapeutic traditional Thai bodywork since 2011. Lauren began her Thai massage studies in 2008 with Lotus Palm in NYC, then continued intensive training when she moved to Portland and found her teacher Nephyr Jacobsen of The Naga Center, School of Traditional Thai Medicine and Massage. Lauren's bodywork is focused on pain relief, body balance, better movement flexibility, and overall body wellness. To accomplish these goals she uses the numerous tools of Thai medicine, sports massage, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue. Clients of Thai massage often remark at how much deeper and holistic the work feels, and also that the effects are more immediate and longer-lasting. Most of Lauren's clients are athletes, office workers, chronic pain sufferers, and people who appreciate intensive and effective bodywork.
