So thrilled to welcome Laura Allen, a Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist based in North Carolina. She is also an educator, consultant, former restauranteur, and the author of several books. Her ethics column Heart of Bodywork appears in Massage and Bodywork Magazine. While continuing to serve a handful of dedicated clients, she is also the President of Sales and Marketing at ACH Ventures, parent company to Cryoderm which makes plant-based Pain Relief and Therapeutic Massage products.
This podcast is part of my ongoing effort to have a chat with a massage therapist from every state in the USA. Please subscribe and follow! Given Laura’s storied career, we did chat about much more beyond her state.
