Hello, my name is Laura Lin, of Laura Lin Healing Arts. With a passion for self-care and empowering people in their health and their lives, I specialize in Thai massage and Reiki. Coming from a background of dance, I have a passion for movement and finding our most vital and vibrant selves. Being able to express ourselves and give to others begins with taking care of our own self. It can be hard to prioritize in our busy lives, yet is so essential. I am hear to help you do that.
My journey with the healing arts began in Taipei, Taiwan, where I was teaching English as a Second Language. I was fascinated with the way the older population was so youthful in their being, practicing qi-gong and other martial arts in the public parks each morning. This fascination led me to studying with a Chinese Medicine physician, Dr. Dustin Wu, learning qi-gong exercises, dietary practices, and acupressure points. Fast forward to my return to the states in 2003. After exploring different areas to settle, I came to the Berkshires to intern with Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in their education department. I had a wonderful experience there, and began to discover the surrounding area. Soon after, I began taking yoga classes and training programs at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, completing their 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program and 500 hour Massage and Bodywork program. I have continued in this direction ever since.
Most recently, I have been working on self and professional development through the Landmark Worldwide Education curriculum. It has been inspiring, engaging, and empowering as it's led me to follow my passions and create the life of my dreams. I've been so inspired that I have been sharing it with all of the people in my life, and allowing it to inform my work in the healing arts.
