Bodywork & Movement
Private and Group Sessions with Laurie Keith, Licensed Massage Therapist

Laurie Keith, BA, LMP

Laurie is currently fascinated with the new science about how what has been called our, “Musculo-Skeletal” system is really more of a “web” of interconnecting fascial sheaths that include bones, nerves, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels…and “energy”.   When we can revitalize and attune the nervous system via unwinding, unsticking and reconnecting function in subtle movements of the body, the whole system communicates better resulting in more efficient easeful function, movement, healing in general….and an enhanced feeling of vitality and peace. 

More on background and training: 

Laurie has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for 29 years and a student and practitioner of Health of "our Being" (microcosm of personal health to macrocosm of planetary health!'s all connected!) for many more than that.   She has a B.A in East Asian Studies from Penn State University, which included study of T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Oriental Medicine in China.  She graduated from 2 massage therapy programs: New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics and Brian Utting School of Massage in Seattle as well as some extensive post graduate trainings including Onsen International ( and Advanced Injury Treatment Trainings with Ben Benjamin at The Muscular Therapy Institute.  A list of some of her more recent continuing education courses is below.

She taught massage therapy at  Bastyr University of Naturopathic Medicine for 10 years and Yoga for 16 years on Whidbey Island.  She also taught T'ai Chi Ch'uan and has been a student of “energy”/“chi” ever since an an "awakening" experience broke her out of left brained, logical, rational persona at age 20.  Ever since she has been questing to learn and share the amazing magic of the resonant fields of being that we are.  Modern Quantum physics has described life this way for over a century; biology and medicine have just been a little slow to catch up!  

Emotions, past traumas and beliefs can keep us stuck in old reactive patterns often causing stress that can show up in the body and effect our health directly.   Laurie offers Emotional Freedom Technique, Matrix Reimprinting, Fascial Release work and conscious touch through various types of bodywork to support the heart/mind/body/spirit healing and experiencing greater resiliency, health and freedom to enjoy life!
