Cara Laskowski

Level 1 Body Heal Therapist

9209 Baybrook Lane, Charlotte, NC 28277

(704) 981-1048

Cara found her way to bodywork therapy after 10 years of integrative studies in embodied healing and transformation. What started as a personal journey to improve her health and posture became a multidisciplinary and multicultural study in the healing arts throughout the US and South America. While traveling by bicycle for months at a time, and then experiencing life in the Amazon jungle, Cara felt more alive and at peace than she had since childhood. This inspired her to investigate “aliveness” and how to maintain it in the context of modern living. 

Cara’s work as a therapist and movement coach is an integration of her studies in somatic psychology, yoga, martial arts, and bodywork. She helps people more deeply connect with their own bodies and feel more empowered to actively participate in their own healing. With profound respect for the power of touch in the healing process, she uses touch and manual therapy, along with movement and breathwork to help people heal and transform postural patterns that cause pain and inhibit aliveness.

A movement enthusiast who believes that we’re never too old to play, Cara is an advanced student of the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira and a new student in the field of natural parkour. You may spot her doing cartwheels or climbing trees at a nearby park and continuing her mission of promoting aliveness and inner peace wherever she goes.  

If you love to move and want to expand your movement potential and create a deeper connection with your body, Cara is a great choice for you.  Cara uses her extensive experience in body-mind practices and bodywork techniques to help you release pain and restriction throughout your whole body allowing for a more balanced posture, enhanced mobility, and greater support for your overall well-being.
