Laurie has been in active practice since 2000 and spent 14+ years of her career as a massage therapy instructor at colleges in Toronto and Halifax. She has taught and developed curriculum mainly in anatomy, physiology, and pathology. Laurie teaches sciences to yoga teacher trainees, athletes and coaches, worked with the Etobicoke swim club contributing to their dry land training program, co- wrote and developed a yoga manual and recorded a race visualization for competitive swimmers. She also regularly travels between Halifax and Toronto to teach assessment and movement courses that she has developed, based on her clinical and educational experience. She is the only Level 3 certified practitioner in Atlantic Canada using a technique called NeuroKinetic Therapy™(NKT), and currently runs study groups for other practitioners in the Maritimes. Recently, Laurie has adopted the term Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) to describe her treatments. This approach involves a combination of innovative sensory and motor techniques that help to identify the source of dysfunction and improve the way the body creates purposeful movement. She is able to assess for dysfunctions related to vision, brain injury, ligament trauma, scars, postural strain, repetitive injury, nerve entrapments, and a variety of other conditions. Laurie has additional training as a yoga teacher and personal trainer, and uses those skills to inform the creation of home care for her clients.
