Laura Allen Massage Therapy

I accept appointments at Natalya’s Salon & Spa, 147 Oak St. Extension, Suite 121, Forest City, NC. By appointment only, please call 828-289-5047.

I am a graduate of The Whole You School of Massage & Bodywork and have been a Licensed Massage Therapist & Bodyworker since 2000. Since that time, I have completed numerous hours of continuing education and have been teaching continuing education to other massage therapists as an Approved Provider of Continuing Education under the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork since 2000.

My training includes Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Oncology Massage, and numerous specialty classes. My particular interests are working with people suffering from TMJ Dysfunction, cancer patients, and getting people out of pain from sciatica, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other painful neuromuscular conditions. I also offer relaxation massage, the value of which should never be underestimated.

If you have a condition that I am not qualified to work with, I will be happy to refer you to another massage therapist. I urge you, if you are a current cancer patient or a survivor, not to work with massage therapists who do not have specific training in working with oncology patients.

I do not accept appointments shorter than 1 hour, or book sessions longer than 90 minutes.

A medical intake form and interview will be completed before your massage. People who refuse to divulge information will not be treated. I do not accept insurance, but will be glad to provideĀ  you with a receipt so you can turn it into your insurance company in the event that you have a policy that will cover it. This also applies to Worker’s Compensation or Personal Injury cases; payment is expected at time of service and you must obtain your own reimbursements.

Gift Certificates and Packages are available. Credit cards are accepted.

I work on an appointment basis only. Cancellations of less than 4 hours notice are expected to pay for the full session, including those with gift certificates.
