Lori Todd, LMBT, CSCS, USAW, CES (NC LMBT #16118)



Lori brings a three-dimensional approach to massage, bodywork and whole body wellness, combining movement with massage. This approach allows her to work more effectively and therapeutically without having to work deeper than what the client wants. She specializes in orthopedic, sports, and Traditional Thai massage, all of which incorporate movement with massage. When the end goal is improved movement and mobility or greater relaxation and freedom in the body, utilizing active and passive movement with massage enhances the therapeutic outcome of a session. She also utilizes traditional Asian cupping and Guasha, and myofascial cupping techniques as needed.

Lori also specializes in pre and post-natal, fertility, lymphatic, deep tissue, and trigger point massage, as well as Integrative Reflexology and aromatherapy. Lori defines the session based on the needs of each client, rather than by a specific modality. A session with her would likely include a combination of modalities and techniques.

What does all of this mean to you when you’re on her table? It means that you’re in capable hands and that your massage session will be customized to your particular needs, whether you just want to relax or if you need assistance with chronic shoulder, hip, or low back pain.

Lori is also a veteran strength and conditioning coach specializing in pre- and post-rehabilitation and functional movement and whether it’s utilizing exercise or massage her focus is helping to get people out of pain. Her areas of training credentials are: Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Club Coach for USA Weightlifting (USAW), National Academy of Sports Medicine Corrective Exercise Specialist (NASM CES), National Academy of Sports Medicine Senior Fitness Specialist.
