"Lauralee is perhaps the single most gifted massage therapist I have ever had the good fortune of working with. She is both strong and sensitive, knowledgeable and intuitive, skillful, compassionate, and deeply present. Her touch is an extraordinary healing force."
- Phillip Askew, Yoga Master & Video Artist
"When I met Lauralee it was obvious to me that she is a very special healer. I have been getting massages from her for over 10 years and consider her a big part of my support and wellbeing. Lauralee is an extremely gifted and skilled massage therapist. I consider her one of the best in NYC. I often send my patients to her who always sing her praises and thank me endlessly for the referral.
What makes her body work magical, effective and always healing is her beautiful energy, warmth and heart. She is always present and focused. As a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I understand the importantce of being a positive force in order to be able to help and heal others. Lauraee's dedication and efforts to her own growth makes her a very sincere and empathetic individual and those who know her are always touched and inspired."

"Lauralee Kelly is an exceptional massage therapist whom I’ve had the great pleasure of using for over 10 years. I am so grateful for the professional and expert care that Lauralee brings to her massages. She knows exactly how to ease the body and bring it back to balance and well-being. I am also grateful for her caring and compassionate manner. I have come to realize the importance of a skilled therapeutic massage executed by a professional, trained individual. Beyond her professionalism, I find that she truly cares about each individual, their health, their circumstances - mind body and spirit. She is dedicated to her profession and is, simply stated, one of the best and anyone under her care is in great hands!!!"
10 years on, since the day we met, there is still only one woman in my life whom I always return to for energy work and massage therapy. This woman is Lauralee. Being in her care and presence, I feel her wisdom and openness shine through, and she radiates kindness and compassion like no other. Every time I come to her table, I find myself opening and deepening, my entire body relaxes into the space she holds so beautifully, and I remember once again the inner wisdom of the past, the present and the future. And she is there by my side, like a being of pure light, with healing hands and the most divine touch, to tune into all the energy around us. She aligns her hands and works into places of holding, and you can feel the channels start to move the body into a place of receptivity.
She often tells me that the unfolding of my story is always perfect, and always exactly where I need to be. I thing that's why I always return to her, because she's the very embodiment of that message and when I receive a treatment form her, it is always perfect for me. Always right on time, when I need it the most.

"Lauralee is a true healer, she senses the places in you that
need to be touched both physically and spiritually, and
answers the call without you having to ask."
"Lauralee is the most intuitive and sensitive massage therapist I have ever encountered. She has a gift for detecting exactly where the trouble spots are without needing to ask. Lauralee > New York City tension."
"Words can't express what Lauralee has done for me... She takes a holistic, individual approach to each session - she wants to understand what your issues are, and then works with you on the best treatment to deliver the results you seek. Whether it's intense massage, energy work or a combination - she intuitively knows where the problem areas are and how to fix them. I always walk out from a session feeling a sense of lightness - relaxed, yet energized. I'm so very grateful I have Lauralee."
- Tracy Scarlato
"If you’re reading this, then you have been fortunate enough to have been referred to see Lauralee Kelly, an outstanding massage therapist. I have been seeing Lauralee regularly for more years than I can remember. She has an uncanny ability to “read” one’s body and sense where the trouble spots might be, and with a strong but sensitive technique she makes them disappear. Lauralee also has a broad understanding of various forms of alternative medical treatments-acupuncture and related fields- and can help guide you if needed to professionals that the traditional medical community often completely ignores. I urge you to try the Lauralee experience for yourself and get hooked like I did-hope you enjoy."
"Lauralee embodies a combination of exceptional skill, warmth, and professionalism that is incredibly rare and an absolute treasure. I began seeing Lauralee because of neck pain that prevented me from turning my head for months and was impervious to muscle relaxers, acupuncture, and the hands of less skilled massage therapists. After one treatment from Lauralee, I had significant relief, and after three or four, I had full mobility back. I have continued to seek treatment from Lauralee and have experienced a significant reduction in migraines, which I've experienced since childhood, as well as great relief from the various aches and pains of workouts. Even when I am not experiencing any particular symptom, however, Lauralee offers respite and restoration from the everyday stresses of life. She is truly a healer."
Lauralee Kelly is a true healer in every sense of the word. Her massage therapy sessions are always perfect for what I need on a given day, even if I can't articulate it in words before we begin. Whether deep tissue, restorative, sports massage, or cranio-sacral, it is clear that Lauralee was born to do this work. With over 20 years of experience, she brings an intuition and expertise to her practice that is extremely rare. Beyond time itself, it's Lauralee's heart and caring spirit that make her a true joy to work with. I always look forward to our sessions and leave feeling completely rejuvenated.
I was deeply moved by Lomi Lomi. I believe that the session prompted a physical and emotional release, allowing me to become more aware of patterns of holding emotional tension in my body. This isn't your average bodywork session. This is deep work and I find Lomi Lomi with Lauralee a great support in my spiritual growth.
