Laura is a seasoned physical therapist. She graduated in January 2007 from Saint Louis University with her masters degree in physical therapy, and an undergraduate degree in exercise science in 2004. She has been passionate about Counterstrain since her first exposure to it when a physical therapist she was being mentored by had tried every traditional PT treatment he could think of to help her with her chronic sciatic pain in her leg and hip. Nothing worked for her until he tried Counterstrain, and Laura immediately knew she wanted to learn the technique due to its significant and immediate pain relief. In April 2008, Laura took her first course in Strain/Counterstrain, the original Counterstrain technique developed by Dr. Lawrence Jones, DO, JSCCI. She now uses primarily Fascial Counterstrain in her treatments, which is the more advanced Counterstrain technique developed by Brian Tuckey, PT, OCS, JSCCI. She enjoys educating her patients and incorporates nutrition and holistic wellness to help individuals get back to their best selves. Laura is working towards her holistic health coaching certificate in plant-based wellness. When not working, Laura enjoys argentine tango dancing, spending time with friends and family, volunteering, and traveling in the USA and abroad.
