Meet Lara Berthiaume, Advanced Therapist

Lara Berthiaume, CMT, has been a professional massage therapist since 1999 and has worked at Massage Therapy Center Palo Alto since 2000. Says Lara, “I have always known that I wanted to be a professional masseuse—to me, it is such spiritually rewarding work and keeps me in touch with myself, as well as the human spirit.” Besides her basic training in Swedish massage, she has studied extensively one-on-one with several teachers of structural integration and clinical deep tissue massage.

“I have a passion for my work, and I am dedicated to continuously learning adjunct bodywork skills through experience and external studies. Throughout my career I have worked with many different clients and a broad range of physical issues. My clientele benefits from basic stress-releasing work, as well as relief from specific medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis.”

Lara enjoys being close to her family. She loves animals, is inspired by nature, and is enriched by traveling. She has a love for the East where she discovered the principles of Hinduism and Buddhism.
