Meet Laura Young.
My name is Laura, and I am the founder of Health at Hand Bodywork +Esthetics. I have been committed to providing highly skilled, knowledgeable and inspired bodywork since 1998. Blending the art and science of skincare and bodywork, I delight in the opportunity to be able to provide nurturing experience followed by the most advanced techniques to help clients reach their goals.
With over 20 years of experience, I’ve completed over 2000 hours of education in massage therapy. I specialize in many modalities drawing from a clinical/sports background – working with chronic pain and injury — and eastern, energetic modalities including — Ashiatsu (Barefoot Massage) and Shiatsu. I also provide results-oriented, corrective skincare. It is my goal to provide advanced, cutting edge treatments and the finest clinical, therapeutic products available.
I graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy (CSMT) in 1998. Received my Myofascial Certification from CSMT in 1999. I completed Advanced Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy training in 2006 and earned my Zen Shiatsu Certification at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2009. In 2103, I graduated from the College of International Esthetics, earning my Esthetician Certification and CO State License, as well as Medical Esthetics Certificates in Microdermabrasion and Chemical Resurfacing. I attend continuing education seminars, labs and classes in the field of Esthetics and Massage.
I am blessed and grateful to live and work in the beautiful community of Golden. I enjoy an active lifestyle of alpine and cross country skiing in the winter, and hiking, biking in the warmer months. I am a Mom to a wonderful and vivacious son, Hayden. A few of our favorite activities include learning about dinosaurs, reading, fishing, kayaking and camping. I also love to spend time with friends, cook, travel, sing and dance!
