My name is Laura Share, and I operate Elemental Work as a Licensed Massage Therapist, Polarity Practitioner and Reiki Master.
I've spent many years working with my hands in differing capacities--a bread baker, a landscape gardener, a jeweler. I learned the skills of listening with my hands and looking for balance and detail with the eye. I've also worked in the field of human resources, and learned to listen deeply to others, and to hold confidentiality with conviction.
In 2012, I completed my Massage and Polarity training with Spa Tech Institute, and was an instructor at their Westbrook, Maine location from 2014-2016. I completed my Reiki Master Level in 2018.
I have trained in multiple massage techniques focusing on myofascial release, Medical Massage applications, Swedish massage, and reflexology, in addition to advanced techniques designed to target neuromuscular interactions, providing muscular relief without discomfort. I've completed training in oncology massage and the concerns at play both during and after treatment. I've pursued continuing education in the relief of neck pain, work targeting the deep muscles of the abdomen and pelvis, work focused on the evaluation and treatment of low back pain, relief of pain using traditional Chinese acupressure points, and biodynamic craniosacral therapy, as well as the use of kinesiology tape for pain relief and therapeutic treatment. I am an Associated Polarity Practitioner and a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher, and provide bodywork addressing balance, relaxation and the health of your energetic system.
What does all of that mean? Whatever your goals are for your session, I have a variety of techniques to use to help meet them. We will always work within your comfort level, whether you can tolerate deep work, or need a very gentle hand. If you have any questions, please contact me.
