Did you know that stress can take a physical toll on your body? Odds are at some point during this hectic year, you’ve experienced some form of stress. Don’t worry; Laura Pruss is here to teach you all about the benefits a massage at Spa Bleu can give you!
As a Chopra Center Certified Perfect Health Lifestyle instructor and Primordial Sound meditation teacher, she knows all about the mind-body-spirit connection. Laura provides massage and Ayurvedic services at both of Spa Bleu’s locations to have her guests feeling rejuvenated. Read on to find out how she can give you the best spa experience in West Dundee and South Barrington, IL!

How long have you been a massage therapist?

I have been a massage therapist for 12 years. The work continues to inspire me daily!

What service do you get the most joy from performing, and why?

I get the most gratification from helping a guest with whatever issue concerns them the most. I love figuring out what is happening in their skin and tissues biologically. My goal is to implement the most effective treatment while still providing a relaxing spa experience.

What is your most memorable professional experience or interaction with a client as a massage therapist?

The most memorable experiences are the guests who discovered a newfound appreciation for massage. It’s so rewarding to see a guest realize how much better they feel at the end of their service with me.

What service/massage would you recommend for a first-time client?

One of my favorite appointments is seeing a client for their very first massage. I love introducing them to the benefits of bodywork. I think it is essential to take your time with first-time guests.  If you’re interested in massage but don’t know where to start, I recommend the 60-minute Aveda Aroma massage. It begins with a thorough consultation and is perfect for the initial massage experience.
