Bodywork for the entire family is a heart mission for Laura.


Growing up in a large family, and now as a mother to twins, Laura believes that bodywork expands well beyond self-care. Simply put, a nurtured body is a nurtured soul. Which can, in turn, nurture others. Based out of East Texas, Mercy Touch also wants to support your holistic, therapeutic care by nurturing each stage of life your family is in.



Laura has been a licensed massage therapist since 2011 who has trained with experts in the bodywork field such as Carol Osborne, a leading prenatal and postpartum massage teacher and author. She is also certified in Pediatric Massage through the Liddlekidz Foundation with Tina Allen. She has studied with John Barnes in Myofascial Release, and one of two providers in the greater East Texas area for the Gillespie Approach, otherwise known as Craniosacral Fascial Therapy.

“Laura is wonderful!! She was so patient while working with my four-month old. She came highly recommended before and after my son had his lip tie & tongue revised. I can already see a huge difference and I’m forever grateful for her amazing work!”
— Erin W.
