WELCOME TO LAURA LIN
My goal is to meet your needs for care and to empower you in your health.
Specializing in Functional Nutrition, Ayurveda and Reiki, I create customized treatments that address your whole being: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
Working with core health basics and self-care practices, I educate people to be masters of their health. Radical, revolutionary. Real and lasting healing, discovering wholeness. Not the quick fix or the magic pill. The real deal. The body’s ability for healing is unlimited and I want to help you access it.
Focusing on women’s long term health concerns, I support you to recover your energy, reclaim your vitality, and reconnect to your passion and sensuality. Hormonal balance is especially important for you and I can assist you in finding that delicate and harmonious balance.
Please see below for more information about my offerings in Functional Nutrition Counseling, Ayurveda, Reiki, and massage.
I have a passion for self-care and for empowering people in their lives. My commitment is for you to leave a session feeling relaxed, in tune with your body, and moving forward in your life as you connect to your innate wisdom and power.
I am honored to serve you.
What is Functional Nutrition Counseling and why would you want to try it?
Do you want to have more energy or lose weight? Do you have chronic pain, brain fog, depression, anxiety, a chronic condition, or just want to feel like your old self again? Do you have a challenging health problem to solve?
Functional Nutrition counseling is a systems based approach that looks at how all of your body's systems are functioning as a whole. It begins with looking at diet and lifestyle, and moves on to determine any vitamin or nutritional deficiencies you may have.
Next we look deeper into the root causes of dysfunction. Perhaps you go to the doctor and all your tests come out fine but you just aren't feeling right. Often a short visit to the doctor doesn’t allow time to address long standing and complex health issues. With guidance from a Functional Nutrition Counselor, we take the time needed to map and uncover what is going on and identify what changes can help address these imbalances.
We use comprehensive diet and lifestyle management, supplements, herbs, and other tools based on a detailed health history and tracking to create personalized recommendations that are tailored to work for you. Functional Nutrition counseling helps to bring all of your body systems into an optimal state and function. It is much more than getting advice for your diet. It encompasses all areas of your life and your health.
As a Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor, a massage therapist (LMT), Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Master Reiki Practitioner, and more, I blend my deep and diverse knowledge of self-care practices in creating the perfect plan for you. I compassionately support you to make the changes that will give you optimal health and well-being.
I've also undergone my own health crisis that had me searching for answers to regain my health. I struggled as I saw many doctors over many years, and finally found my way to Functional Nutrition. Through this approach I have been able to put the power of my healing back into my own hands. I have personally experienced the effectiveness of these tools and I would like to help you do the same.
Please contact me for a complimentary 15 minute consultation to see if Functional Nutrition counseling is right for you.

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, I work directly with your energy field to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to conduct the necessary energy force between us. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils with an array of strokes using gentle to deep pressure to help the body improve its circulation.
The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

"Laura strikes a wonderful balance between firm, confident touch and subtle attuned presence. Her combination of massage and energy work is intuitive, relaxing, and effective. She is gentle, genuinely joyous, and truly caring."
"I recently had the pleasure of receiving massage therapy from Laura Lin and can not say enough wonderful things about her technique. Her wide range of styles and techniques makes the experience with very unique and rewarding. Her Reiki is peaceful and mindful. She guides you sensitively within yourself to connect and heal."
"Laura has a calming and warm presence that really allows you to feel supported and open, allowing your energy to shift and come to light.
Laura’s Swedish massage is strong and deeply relaxing. Her knowledge of the body truly shines as she naturally finds hidden tensions and deeply works through the knots with both strength and ease, leaving your body in a state of peace.
Laura’s Thai massage is another deeply relaxing asset. Especially for athletes or anyone with chronic tension. She was able to relieve a deep hip flexor tension which I had been feeling for a long time. She does a wonderful job of mobilizing stiffness in joints and opening up the range of motion in tight areas."
"The combination of Laura’s gentle and warm energy, with her strength and expertise makes her a powerful masseuse.
I have been teaching Pilates for over 10 years and can appreciate and recognize talent within bodywork, and Laura is top notch.
I highly recommend Laura to anyone looking to connect to their bodies and walk away feeling completely renewed and refreshed."
