Laurie Leyne, LMT


As a state licensed and nationally certified Massage Therapist, Laurie’s goal is to improve the lives of her clients by relieving pain, tension and stress with skill and compassion. She entered the field of health and wellness when a cancer diagnosis led to a major shift in her life. She could no longer tolerate her unfulfilling career as an accountant and longed to help people in a way that felt more direct and meaningful. Laurie has been practicing massage since 2006, and over the past decade, she has built a devoted client base and advanced her techniques with numerous trainings.

In 2014, she purchased Advanced Health & Wellness from Dr. Aaron Pollock, DC. As the owner, she strives to provide a cheerful and friendly environment where practitioners feel supported and clients feel respected and relaxed.

She has lived and raised her daughter, Cally, in Andover since 2002. Outside of Advanced Health & Wellness, Laurie enjoys skiing, dancing, bike riding, walking trails, the beach and most of all laughing!
