Hi, my name is Lauren. I was born a native Texan in Austin, but spent most of my childhood in Northern California. Circumstance brought me back to Texas as a teenager, and I currently reside and work in San Antonio.
I recently returned to work in a salon and spa owned by a long time client and friend, after running and operating my own business for five years. I am dually licensed in massage therapy and esthetics, and I have always possessed a strong need to help people and to make them look and feel better about themselves.
After starting college to become a nurse, I realized that my aspirations in the field of labor and delivery nursing was not my true calling. It was during my training in skin care that I realized I had a natural talent for massage therapy. I was commonly asked by my clients if I was already a therapist, so I decided to train for my massage license while working as an esthetician.
I have hands that are impressively strong despite my stature and a way of releasing positive energy to help create a feeling of peace and relaxation for my clients. I have training in deep tissue, trigger point, reflexology, prenatal massage, labor massage, infant massage, and Sabai Stone mineral therapy.
I have been practicing massage therapy for almost ten years, and have built a name for myself locally. Now, I am ecstatic about this amazing opportunity to be a part of something so much larger.
Music has been a major part of my life since I was a small child. I’ve been singing since I was around three years old; of course most of that was in the shower! My older sister influenced my musical tastes the most growing up. I used to dream of one day being able to see my favorite bands play live and experience all of the excitement of a large concert rather than just hearing them on vinyl or tape.
Also, I have a great love and respect for the local music scene, which I believe to be monumentally important. I’ve met several talented aspiring musicians here in San Antonio as well as on the road.
I took the chance of starting a small Indie Label with my sister and her husband a few years ago. It was exciting to be a part of the business side of the music industry, even if it was only on a small scale. We met a band that we believed was amazing and wanted to give them a chance to realize their dreams as well. So, you can imagine how I reacted when I found that I could be a part of a team such as this. I found it hard to believe at first and then thought to myself, “I was made for this!”
I can now combine my natural talent for massage and my innate love for music and the world it creates to realize my dreams though hard work and a lot of fun along the way.
