Lauren Payne, L.M.T.
I received my training at the Maui School of Therapeutic Massage by an amazing staff of inspirational educators and healers. After residing on the islands for seven years, which truly was a nurturing experience, it was time for change and expansion. My greatest teaching was the gift of “Aloha” which I brought with me to beautiful Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Mountains in 2003.
A huge reason that I moved to the Sierra Mountains was to take full advantage of the epic year round sporting activities, and I understand the impact of various sports on your body. I also began receiving regular massage therapy at the age of 15 and I believe that my experience (on the other side of the table) has made a significant contribution to my sucess in this field of work. Presently I am enrolled in a 500 hour yoga teacher certification program, to be completed by 2016. My yoga practice has deepened my understanding of the body and mind. In recent years I have been immersed in a dedicated practice of realizing my own temple's infrastructure ….through exploration of breath, alignment, joint mobility, and emotional well being. Throughout the years I have come to understand I am a conductor of healing and a guardian of wellness, guiding and facilitating the client's experience of releasing, rejoicing, relaxing and returning to the source of their own inner healer.
