My one hour sessions involve compassionate listening; helping patients find the core issues that are contributing to their current problem or discomfort.
Blending the use of acupuncture and Reiki healing speeds the recovery process. Combined with acupuncture, Reiki is a very beneficial addition to healing the body, mind and spirit
I am especially skilled with first time clients, sensitive individuals and needle phobic people. Your first session with me will be so incredibly relaxing that you will wonder why you put off receiving this wonderful treatment for so long.
Spiritual, mental and emotional blocks are addressed as they relate to the physical complaint if the client is willing to explore causal factors of pain, illness and disease
Acupuncture uses small needles to move the qi in the channels (meridians) to restore balance and keep the body healthy. I am especially skilled with first time clients, sensitive individuals and needle phobic people.
"Laurie is a wonderful acupuncturist. She is very gentle with the needles and has a keen sense in helping you to target whatever issue is going on in your body. I particularly appreciate her knowledge around dealing with anxiety and how that affects the organs. Not only is she very talented in her field of acupuncture but you feel cleared on all levels i.e. spiritual, emotional, mental and physical when you leave her office. I would highly recommend Laurie to anyone looking for healing." — L.S.

Tired of being in pain? Tired of taking ibuprofen products? . Laurie provides an extremely effective treatment to reduce inflammation and pain which also stimulates the body’s natural healing process. By utilizing injections of homeopathic products (anti-inflammatories) either into the muscles (trigger point injections) or under the skin (therapeutic subcutaneous injections) there is a rapid reversal of pain (usually within 3 sessions). Laurie utilizes a protocol where the injections do not require deep insertion.
Many patients have muscle spasms, low back pain, sciatica, disc problems, muscle tension discomfort, joint strains/sprains, plantar fasciitis, nerve tingling in extremities, and other acute or chronic symptoms due to car accidents, sports injuries, falls, repetitive motion overuse, and fibromyalgia.
This is especially useful when massage, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, and/or prescription drugs have not provided satisfactory results. People are often recommended to have cortisone shots, but most often can avoid them when receiving this treatment. Patients have been heard to say “I can’t believe I am looking forward to more injections”!
Laurie Marum has helped me stay healthy for years. After two falls, plus the general aging process, including arthritis, I had difficulty walking and standing. Two sessions ago Laurie told me about Traumeel. She gave me two treatments and my constant pain when walking and standing decreased significantly. I intend to continue with the treatments. — M.P.
Nine months ago, I severely injured my knee which included tears in most of the supporting ligaments. After several months of conservative treatment with physical therapy and traditional acupuncture, I had regained only partial function and was still in considerable pain. I was considering the Laparoscopic surgery that was being recommended by several professionals when I heard about the Traumeel point injections.
After the first treatment, I noticed significant improvement. I have now received a total of four treatments, and my knee is essentially back to normal. I am back on the treadmill and elliptical and building endurance. I highly recommend the Traumeel point injections for anyone with joint or muscle pain. In my case, it saved me from an expensive, exploratory procedure that I really did not have the time to have done. — LS
Touch with a healing intention is wonderful to receive. Reiki combined with acupuncture allows the body to deeply relax and heal.
Reiki is a subtle form of energy healing, in which the hands are placed slightly off the body or lightly touching the body. The trained practitioner channels energy or Qi to strengthen the natural healing of the body.
Reiki supports the balance in the person’s entire system - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
Laurie teaches Reiki several times a year. Click here for more information: Reiki Classes

“Laurie’s restorative gifts extend way beyond her accurate and gentle stimulation of acupuncture points. With her additional skills in Reiki energy healing and the intuitive arts, her treatments reached the true depth of my dis-ease and brought soothing relief on so many levels. I had mixed feelings when I was pronounced ‘cured’ – she’d done her job so well I no longer needed treatments. Darn!” “Compassion, intelligence, humor and skill are brought together in Laurie’s restorative treatments, which combine her vast knowledge of several healing disciplines. Her expertise in the field of acupuncture and Chinese medicinal treatments is enhanced by her amazing grasp in the field of energy work—she’s truly a one-stop shop for what ails you.

"I started working with Laurie after a biliary duct attack that put me in the ER. She reasoned that my liver was the underlying cause. This made sense as I have had abnormal liver counts all my life and the doctors just chalked it up to some non-specific genetic abnormality. Laurie started addressing this with acupuncture, energy work and some herbal supplements. The attacks grew fewer and far less intense as we progressed and finally disappeared. A year after we started I got a physical and my liver counts were normal for the first time in 40 years of getting them. Two years later they remain normal and there hasn't been an attack in over a year and a half. I'm impressed! — T.J."
Qigong (also spelled Ch'i Kung) is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine from China. It is the art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement, and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and
circulate the life energy (qi). Qi Gong and Reiki are complementary treatment approaches that combined with acupuncture result in outstanding healing results.
I have been a student of qi gong and other energy systems for over 28 years. I am a firm believer in "healer heal thyself" and so I continue to keep myself clear energetically as I work with others.
