For fun, Lora enjoys spending time exploring the outdoors with her loving partner and pups, getting creative in the kitchen, dancing to live music, digging her hands in soil, devoting time to her personal yoga practice, and broadening her knowledge of bodywork and massage therapy modalities.
Lora is passionate about educating and empowering clients, offering exceptional quality in care, and providing treatment protocols that offer lasting results far beyond the time of service.
