Therapists

Laurie Matamoros, CMT

LaurieI am a member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP), certified in the State of Delaware.  I graduated from Deep Muscle Therapy School in 2005 and later continued study through the Harris School of Wilmington.  I specialize in Neuromuscular massage, , Reflexology, Myofascial Release, Integrative Muscular Movement Technique and incorporate the use of aromatherapy.  I have found that listening to your words and the story your body tells me determines how I can attend to you on a uniquely personal level.

My older sisters used to entice me into giving them backrubs by offering various “rewards.”  Later, I instinctively massaged my babies through their childhood, their very presence reward enough.   While working at A. I. duPont Children’s Hospital (now Nemours) my experiences confirmed what I already knew–the monitors connected to my patients revealed a measurable physical response as I held their feet or stroked their hair.  I was fascinated.  And through a series of extraordinary events I now own and operate this place of healing that has become so much more than I ever dreamed possible.

Aside from pouring myself into my business, literally body, mind and spirit,  I am a wife and mother to four very special people.  I also nurture and love one dog, one chinchilla and a myriad of orchids and houseplants.  I am a trained Stephen Minister, and presently am involved in a healing prayer ministry.   am self taught in the use  of homeopathic healing and grow my own herbs, vegetables and flowers.  Cooking and baking are a passion and I can often be found in the kitchen trying out new recipes on family and friends.  I have fun taking walks in nature,  cheering my kids on in whatever sport they are currently perfecting, traveling and spending time doing just about anything with the people I love.   Besides being an aspiring writer, I play the piano and paint.  I’m usually drawn to read everything I can get my hands on to expand my body of knowledge.  I’ve recently joined a book club consisting of a very lively group of beautiful, intelligent new friends which forces me to take time doing some of my favorite things–reading for pleasure (not information) and nurturing friendships.  I enjoy volunteering through my church and am very excited to be involved in the the  coffee-house ministry at Brewed Awakenings.  Life is constantly changing and I can’t wait to see where it leads me and this healing space I call Body • Mind • Spirit.
