Brera Therapies - Massage
"Every client brings to my attention an inner world of imagery and an outer world of injuries manifesting it".
About:Laura moved from Italy in 2007. Alongside her career in dance she has always sought to widen her understanding of the relationship between body and mind. To this end, Laura holds an MA (Hons) in Philosophy, a PG(Cert) in Performance Innovations, qualifications in Anatomy and Physiology with Distinction, Indian Head Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Pregnancy Massage as well as her Diploma in Therapeutic Massage from the London College of Massage. She is also a Reiki Master and is presently pursuing her PhD in "The embodied enactive approach of Reiki as a somatic enquiry".
Her passion for the connection between the moving body and the embodied mind is the foundation of her work as massage therapist.

"I've visted many a massage therapist over the years and I thought I knew what a good deep-tissue massage felt like - that was until I went to see Laura Brera. She is a master at what she does and after every session I feel like I'm walking on air. I've sufferend from stiffness in my back for many years, due to a discrepancy in leg length, and when I first visited Laura, she listened intently to my reasons for going and tailored the massage to suit. She may be small in stature and build, but Laura is a trained dancer and she has the strength and agility to work out every niggle and knot of tension with ease.
I also informed Laura that my legs were extremely ticklish and that I was apprehensive of them being touched. This was not a problem for Laura; she explained why it felt ticklish and was senstivie to my needs. I now see Laura on a monthly basis and have never felt better. I even relish having my legs massaged! Not only do I think Laura offers the best massage therapy in London, her prices are very reasonable and her therapy rooms in Islington are extremely comfortable. My partner now visits Laura too, and we're both in total agreement that we couldn't be in better hands."
