Meet The Therapists

Laurel Goettling, LMP

Laurel GoettlingLaurel Goettling graduated from the Seattle School of Massage Therapy in 1994.  Laurel’s post graduate interests lead her to specializing in therapeutic and rehabilitative massage.  She has been applying her specialized skills at Graham Rehabilitation and Wellness Center since 1999.

“My techniques are very specific and customized for each patients needs depending on where they are in the healing process.  I see a variety of problems ranging from acute injury cases to chronic postural problems.  My extensive training and post graduate studies allow me to work with many types of conditions and injuries.”

Laurel’s techniques include deep tissue massage, myofacial release, trigger point therapy, acupressure, neuromuscular therapy, cross friction massage and PIR stretching. She is currently working toward a post graduate degree in Aston Patterning.  This highly specialized postural technique offers her the ability to better evaluate and treat poor posture and abnormally established movement patterns that through repetitive use may be causing pain and discomfort.

“I really enjoy working in a professional clinical setting with a team of caring practitioners.  Patients just seem to respond better when a combination of therapies are used.  This is how healthcare should be.”

In her spare time, Laurel enjoys trail running, participating in ½ marathons and ashtanga yoga. She is married with two children and lives in Seattle.

 

Brian Hollingsworth, LMP

Brian was born and raised in California and moved to Seattle in 2007. He has had a lifelong interest in helping and healing others and after years of taking studies in more conventional environments, he pursued his real passion in bodywork.  He graduated from the 750 hour program at Cortiva Institute at Seattle in the spring of 2013 and started working immediately thereafter as a sole practitioner.

He is Swedish based but gravitates toward more refined modalities like deep tissue, muscle stripping, myofascial release, and neuromuscular facilitation to provide a truly results-based treatment.  As a long time yoga student, he better understands the relations among posture, balance and symmetry and the importance of taking care of oneself.

When he is not working you may find him painting, writing or enjoying the outdoors wherever he can. He is very excited to join the Graham Wellness team and hopes to work with you soon!
