for the busy mind and body
Lauren Tysinger Massage Therapy is a small massage practice in Durham, NC, based on the idea that massage should not be rushed. There is enough going on in any of our lives that require stress and haste. Self-care should not be included on that list.
Lauren Tysinger Massage Therapy strives to offer bodywork that helps stressed and overworked individuals find a moment of peace in their own skin. Lauren specializes in managing neck pain that effects desk workers with a trauma-informed massage practice so every client, no matter how sensitive or touch-adverse, can feel comfortable on the massage table and in their own skin.
Lauren graduated Naropa University, the only accredited Buddhist college in the States, in 2012 with a bachelors in Traditional Eastern Arts. They went on to attend the Body Therapy Institute and earned their NC LMBT license (#14715) in 2014.
Lauren uses their experience as a dancer and artist as well as their own sensitivities to touch after surviving an eating disorder and SA to bring a sense of safety and comfort to their work.
In their free time, Lauren trains parrots (especially macaws), plays harp and writes queer fantasy novels.
Bena Lullaby (she/her)
Bena is a sun conure, born in 2021 and rescued in 2022 and is the mascot for Lauren Tysinger Massage Therapy. She loves flying outside and harassing the local crows as well snuggling under the blankets while her human reads.
You may hear Bena at the beginning and end of sessions. She hangs out in her own room during massages but if you would like to meet her, just ask--she loves being doted on!

Come experience the gentle therapeutic work of Ashiatsu where, using a special set of bars, feet apply apply deep and consistent pressure to the large muscle groups of the body. Ashiatsu can be both deep and gentle and offers a feeling of grounding and body-mindfulness through lengthening and slower strokes.
A mixture of gentle and deep strokes, this is a more traditional hands-on massage. This modality focuses on finding a balance between getting work done (working out sore muscles and knots) and making friends with the body (gentle relaxation), helping you come to rest comfortably within your own skin.
