Laura Travelstead, Therapist

Hello!  My name is Laura Travelstead and I enjoy helping people feel and function better.  Having worked in physical therapy for 33 years, I decided to go to John A. Logan College to become a Massage Therapist (like I have wanted to since jr high).  While a PTA, I started learning John Barnes myofascial release in 1995.  Trigger point release and deep tissue massage are a couple of my favorite massage techniques.  I love to feel tight muscles relax as I hear my patients breathing slow down as they completely let go (with an occasional snore). :)  A large part of who I am is dancing.  Having danced since I was 5 yrs old I currently teach ballet at my family's dance studio, Travelstead Dance Studio.  In dance, you are aware of how important function is.  I am also active in my religion and in the Marion Civic Center Foundation Board.  My two dogs, Jr. and Sadie and my dance students are my children.
