Lara 2Lara

My name is Lara and I am the mother of two beautiful young women ages 21 and 24. I have been practicing massage since 2015 when I graduated from the Cortiva institute of massage. I found such an abundance of information learning about the different massage modalities that I elected to complete an extra 250 hours of education, which led me to find my passion for injury treatment. Helping my patients decrease pain and improve quality of life gives me great motivation to be a healer at this clinic. When I am not treating patients I enjoy volunteering at my church directing our homeless ministry, singing in the choir and on the worship team, and going on short term missions to serve other communtites. I look foward to helping you with your healthcare and wellness needs here at swendsen chiropractic.
