Who We Are
Lauren Burnham, BSc, CMT, BCTMB is a Certified Massage Therapist and a lifelong competitive athlete and dancer. She has a Bachelors of Science from the University of New Hampshire where she studied Equine Science.

She used physical therapy, acupuncture and massage as a means of recovery and it changed her perspective on the use of holistic healing for athletes.

Dissatisfied with the laboratory environment, she found her calling at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. Through the years of her private practice she has become one of the most sought after massage therapists in San Diego, specializing in Injury Rehabilitation and Prevention. She is the recent winner of the 2019 San Diego Award for Massage.
