I am a Craniosacral Fascial Therapist (CFT), an Advanced BodyTalk Practitioner and Instructor, and the creator of the Bodywork for Babies course. I run a Wellness Center in Los Angeles specializing with newborn babies, children and their families. I love sharing the work I do with our youngest and most fragile population, and I am proud to work with a fantastic team of lactation consultants, pediatric dentists and physical therapists, and so many others to bring about the best results to help children and families thrive. I'm happy to speak with you on the phone about how this work can help your baby or child.
My journey into health care began when I fractured my L5 vertebrae dancing with the Radio City Rockettes. Western medicine had few solutions to stop my back spasms, but a single session of BodyTalk healed my back, and a year later I was certified in the BodyTalk System and practicing in NYC. My journey in health care continued, and six years later I was training to be a midwife. During my studies I saw the need for alternative health care for babies that could help them with breastfeeding and general wellness. I learned about craniosacral fascial therapy (CFT) from a colleague and went on to train in CFT and later develop my own way of working with babies and children over the last ten years. During this time I worked with hundreds of babies, and gave birth to two children at home and breastfed them both for many years. Working with moms postpartum also inspired me to do a doctorate in Human Sexuality in 2017 to better counsel women in their questions and concerns about sexuality and relationships, and I put a decade plus of knowledge into a course to train other practitioners in Bodywork for Babies in 2019, which I am proud to offer online with in-person and Zoom practicals. I am now expecting my third child, and I look forward to continuing to make an impact in my community here in Los Angeles, and to train others worldwide in this simple and effective method to help babies and children feel better and thrive!
"Lauren is amazing. We were referred to her after our son had his tongue tie released. She was able to work out the tension in his body, kinks he had in his back as well as his digestive issues. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the human body and fascia. She also worked on me and my partner as well since we saw such great results with our son. We highly recommend her and we are forever grateful. Life changing!!!!!"
"Lauren just saw our 3 year old daughter and it was a wonderful experience. She was so fun and patient and our daughter doesn't respond well to being touched but she was really comfortable with Lauren. Most importantly her physical ability seemed to improve almost instantly. She was more agile and balanced by the end of the session. We will definitely be seeing Lauren again!"
"I've had many wonderful sessions of Body Talk with Lauren Brim. She has a fantastic touch and is so informative. I feel like I'm in loving hands with her. So much so that I asked her to do Cranail Fascia Therapy on my newborn to help regulate her nervous system and to help unwind her body after birth. It was really useful and I continue to have Lauren do CFT every now and again, and my daughter is 3! It's quite wonderful for little bodies to receive and they are responsive to it. Lauren offers a lot of care to her clients and it has been intriguing to see her continued growth as a healer as she expands to coaching and teaching. I highly recommend her!!"
