“A note of thanks and recommendation for Laura and Healing Kneads Massage, LLC. Laura is an excellent massage therapist. I would not be able to do my daily workouts and weight lifting program if not for weekly massages from Laura. She does not use a “cookie cutter” approach but rather listens to my concerns and focuses on them. I appreciate her willingness to expand her practice to include cupping and the use of Graston tools in addition to normal massage. I have benefited from all of them. With her continuing help I know I will be able to continue my aggressive workouts while dealing with chronic shoulder and leg issues. Thank you Laura!!!”
Thomas Allman, Licensed Massage Therapist
Thomas brings his passion for health and healing into his massage and bodywork practice. A 4.0 GPA graduate of Cortiva Institutes’ 750HR Massage Therapy Program, he received instruction in a wide range of Eastern and Western massage modalities. Along with the certification by the Department of Health as a Licensed Massage Therapist, Thomas is also certified by the Yoga Alliance as a 500HR CYT (certified yoga teacher). His massage style has developed over the years to be a perfect blending of his yoga and massage practices.
Continuing Education is a crucial part of being a skilled massage therapist. Since graduation from Cortiva Institute Thomas has continued his massage studies to include: Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point/Neuromuscular Therapy, Cupping and has certification in Sports Massage and Bamboo massage. Having a variety of “tools” in his “massage tool box” allows him to help clients who are having soft tissue/muscular complaints. He has helped many clients in reducing their pain who were suffering from: headaches, neck and back pain, hip pain, frozen shoulder, and other soft tissue ailments. His goal is to have clients experience a positive outcome during every therapy session.
“As a LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) I always keep in mind that massage isn’t something I do to someone, it is something I do with someone. Creating an awareness around what my clients are doing that is contributing towards any dysfunction they’re experiencing, is always going to be the most helpful tool I have. Because just like being human; awareness is the first step towards change.”

Thomas was excellent in helping me to recover from a sports injury that left me in so much pain! He has a true understanding of anatomy and relationships between muscles, tissues. What a difference it has made for me! Each time I go I am feeling better and better.
