About Lagom Massage

Lagom Massage by Lauren Meredith was founded with the intention of helping people find a solution to their aches and pains. It started by offering different treatments based on the level of intensity used during the treatment, i.e. soft, medium, and deep. However, due to the nuances of clients' issues, I found that I frequently combined techniques throughout treatments to suit particular muscle needs. It is important to me that attention is given to the client's story about their chronic and acute discomfort, aches, pains, and also what they want or need. There is nothing I like less that focusing on legs when someone comes in with a neck ache! Or stretching out a neck when they came in for sciatica issues.

It is also vital for both of us to have a conversation at the beginning of each session to establish an understanding of what the treatment will involve. This discussion is usually lengthier in an initial visit, however this process becomes much more streamlined with follow up treatments. Client feedback about pressure is welcome so that 'lagom' pressures may be acheived.

Targeted massage is the number one objective. Massage sessions at Lagom Massage may become your recipe for scheduled stress relief once a month or you might find a balance in switching off between Classic Swedish Massage and Massage Therapy to get a deep treatment mixed with an occasional stretch session.

About Lauren

Hi! My name is Lauren. I find purposeful enjoyment in providing focused therapeutic bodywork massage. I am trained, first and foremost, in Classic Swedish Massage, though have added techniques including therapeutic stretching, pregnancy considerations and hot stone manipulations. I enjoy finding solutions for each client based on their specific needs, economic situations and scheduling constraints.

I grew up just outside of Chicago, Illinois, USA. I am constantly creating things and exploring crafts. Paper, fiber, pencil and yarn are my favorite sources of calm and inspiration. Origami, knitting and exploring home-made natural skin care products are my current passions. You should not be surprised to see a little origami bird or flower hanging out in the reception. I also like playing piano.
