Lorna is a New York-trained bodyworker and creative athlete practicing in Chicago, IL. Her experience as an aerial circus performer introduced her to massage therapy as a healing art, and continues to influence her unique perspective on human physiology and movement patterns. Her skillful touch brings relief from pain and discomfort, self-awareness of the body and its external environment, and aids in discovering new options for movement, posture, and self-care.
Lorna’s practice philosophy recognizes that a person’s physical, mental, emotional, and psychological history is manifested through the body, and aims to (re)align a healthy mind-body connection with the power of informed, empathetic and intuitive touch.
Because the human body is capable of self-healing, Lorna creates a somatic healing experience that is collaborative and empowers her clients to understand their self-healing potential to serve our greater goals and needs.
Lorna’s specialties include structural integration, Swedish bodywork, sports/rehabilitative bodywork, cupping, myofascial release, manual lymphatic drainage, craniosacral therapy, thought field therapy (TFT), emotional freedom technique (EFT), TAP therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, trauma-informed bodywork, healing through vagus nerve activation and somatic therapy.
