Laurie L Pratt - LMT, BCTMB (owner)

Laurie Pratt has been practicing massage therapy since 2003 when she took over the ownership of Serenity (formerly Serenity Day Spa).  Now 20 years in business, Serenity Massage & Wellness Spa continues to deliver the best therapeutic massage techniques offered in the local area.  Laurie has served as a volunteer with the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), at the board level, since 2005.  She is always striving to bring the profession to a higher level of acceptance within the medical and local communities and to implore people to make massage a part of their wellness program.  She struggles everyday with Fibromyalgia but with weekly/bi-weekly massage sessions she is able to get the tension relief she needs to be the successful business person she has become and keep up with a very busy lifestyle.  When business and volunteering are not taking up her time she lends a hand to her husband (Craig) and his passion for the robotics program he help bring to the area.  When they are not running their respective businesses or volunteering; Laurie and Craig love to travel.  She recently went to Kenya on a 14 day Safari and he to golf on the greens in Scotland.  Although they are both born and raised in Illinois, they met in Charleston, SC in 1994 and have been married and in the Augusta area since 1997.
