As a young hairstylist, my mantra became “If you can’t make a client look and feel better about themselves when they leave your salon, then you have not done your job.” I have been a hairstylist for forty one years, married to Chris for 38 years. Four children, 7 grandchildren. Art, fishing, outdoor activities, friends are what trip my trigger. I’m sorry but I’m not accepting new clients at this time. Derry out.

LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPIST – 574.527.4642
Hi, my name is Laura Hogenson and I am a licensed massage therapist. I have been practicing since August 2019. My passion for massage started at a very young age—my dad would pay me $10/hour to massage his feet after work, which led to giving massages to other family members and receiving so many compliments on my natural ability! My passion grew even stronger over the years as I’ve watched my dad heal so many people with chiropractic and other various techniques. I then decided on massage school and am more than confident that I’ve found my calling!
I offer 30, 60, or 90-minute massages. The massage is custom to what kind of pressure you prefer and what areas you want to be worked. I am trained in relaxation, deep tissue, trigger point, pregnancy, hot stone, and cupping massage. I also offer add-on’s which include foot scrubs or hot stones. Call or text me for pricing and appointments!
