Laura Press is a licensed massage therapist and received her degree in Sociology from the University of Hawaii. While traveling and learning the importance of human experience within communities, our interdependence with the land, and unsettled by our disparities in maternity care, Laura was led to the ancient art of working in the birth space.
Laura is a certified labor and postpartum doula, working to provide education and support to growing families. While running a doula business, Laura studied energetic & herbal medicine with an emphasis on women’s reproductive health, mountain west plants, and menstrual wisdom. Making her way down to the Yucatan, she was taught Mayan medicine and womb massage from traditional midwives and healers. Laura blends massage techniques from western and eastern teachings and provides an integrative approach to healing with the use of plants, energetic release, and hands on compassion.
