More Than A Job…

A Calling

I never planned on becoming a massage therapist, let alone a coach. This work found me. Growing up, I wanted to save the coral reefs by becoming a marine biologist. But after the tragic loss of my two best friends in a scuba diving accident that I was supposed to be on, I randomly found my way into a massage therapy class at a local community college.

That first day, I felt like I had found my calling (I also met my husband).

Massage combined my love of biology with my desire to help people-- it just clicked. As a driven, hard-working, midwestern girl, I graduated with a determination to be a ‘successful’ therapist. So I did what I was taught-- free sessions, massive discounts, working multiple jobs six or seven days a week- to build a booked solid practice.

And then I started to notice something…

Booked Solid & Burnt Out

I busted my butt, working nights, weekends, six or seven days a week. And then something else started to happen… My clients started to talk.

They would open up about the stresses in their life and I could clearly see the connection in their bodies. The tightness in their shoulders was directly connected to the stress in their life. Clenched jaws and words held back. Heals literally digging into the ground. I could see the BodyMind Connection in action and would spend 30+ minutes after each session telling them the importance of ‘listening to their body’ and practicing ‘self care’ (even though I struggled to follow my own advice).

I knew that if they just followed through on the amazing advice I was giving, everything would change. And then a few weeks later… They were back on my table with the same complaint.

I was booked solid, burnt out, and my clients were blocked. I knew there had to be a better way.

How You Talk To Your Clients Matters

Around the same time, a friend introduced me to this thing called ‘coaching’. Now, this was back in the day when coaching was actually coaching- an empowering framework designed to help clarify goals, source inner solutions, and take action towards goals (not fancy membership sites, 5-step formulas, or scripts like you see online).

Something inside me *clicked* again.

I got curious. I hired my first coach in 2006 and took my first certification program in 2008. As I experienced the power of coaching in my own life, I started incorporating a coaching framework around my massage sessions. While traditional coaching focused mainly on mindset, I started to notice something even more powerful.

The coaching structure allowed me to guide the client back into themselves. From there, they made their own empowered choices that they actually followed through on between sessions! That is when BodyMind Coaching was born.

Breaking Through The Invisible Ceiling

Everything began to change. I stopped trying to ‘fix’ my clients and let them source their own wholeness. Instead of telling them ‘listen to their body’ they learned what it meant to be present and took ownership of their health and wellness. Not only did their results improve drastically, I also started charging for my time-- all of it.

I started creating ‘containers of support’ which allowed me to break free from trading time for money. Once again, I saw my clients step up and show up on a whole new level and use the BodyMind principles in their life!

For the longest time I thought breaking the invisible ceiling would mean pushing, hustling, and doing more. Coaching opened the door for more impact, income, and freedom in a way that was so light and easy. It’s why I am so passionate about sharing this work with you.

Full time job to 6 figure coaching business

I was spread thin and crazy busy in my booked solid Massage & Skincare private practice. I started working with Laura because I wanted to shift into the next BIG THING that not only supported my dreams of having a fully happy and free life, but that also allowed me to help my clients on a deeper level. I quickly realized that, until I did the deep inner work for myself, my pattern of overgiving would not change. Laura's program showed me how powerful receiving support from like-minded people is. Now I have a fully aligned business that allows me to show up in all of my brilliance and receive time and money for the simple act of being me.

Embodiment Is The Path

Over the years, the BodyMind Method© continued to evolve. What started on my massage table turned into virtual coaching which turned into group coaching which turned into workshops, retreats, online programs, and so much more.

In 2015, I launched the first round of The BodyMind Coaching Program to other wellness professionals.

We now have hundreds of coaches around the world living and sharing this powerful process with their families, clients, communities, and more.
