Laurie Dunlop

   Laurie Dunlop, LMT/Owner

Licensed massage therapist, Reiki Master Teacher and owner of Live Better Massage, LLC, Laurie Dunlop spends her days helping humans, dogs and horses. At her studio in Milwaukee, Laurie’s specialty is Thai yoga massage and Reiki. 

With Traditional Northern Style Thai yoga massage therapy, Laurie guides the body into its natural state of well being and balance by promoting positive energy through compression and assisted yoga asana stretches. Driven by compassion and personal commitment, Laurie works with clients with a variety of needs, whether providing a holistic treatment for rehabilitation from an injury, invigorating sports massage, or for those who just need to feel refreshed and have their body realigned.


Outside the Thai massage studio, Laurie performs bodywork on horses at farms in Southeast Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. The equine bodywork she practices is based on the Masterson Method and is an integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, working the meridian lines, acupressure, stretching and energy work.

Laurie has appeared as a guest on Asia Voight's nationally syndicated webcast The Animal Code as an expert speaking about the benefits of equine bodywork.

Laurie is a forever student and underwent the extensive Masterson Method Advanced Course. She has received certificates in Thai massage Levels 1-3, Hands-free and Clinical courses under Chuck Duff at the Thai School of Bodywork in Chicago and is a graduate from Lakeside School of Massage Therapy with more than 800 hours of combined education and fieldwork in Swedish massage, deep tissue, trigger point work and gentle stretching techniques. A member of the Associated Massage & Bodywork Professionals (AMBP), Laurie is Wisconsin state licensed in Massage Therapy and is certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).
