Hello, my name is Laura, owner of ‘Fingers and Thumbs Massage’. I qualified in ITEC Holistic Massage in 1996 and after further study in the field of Seated Acupressure Massage with The Academy of On-Site Massage, set up Fingers and Thumbs in February 1999.
Over the years I have specialised in pregnancy massage with Well Mother in Bristol, qualified as a baby massage instructor with The Middlesex School of Complimentary Therapies, studied Hot Stone Therapy and completed various advanced massage courses in No Hands Massage and Musculo Skeletal work.
As a result of specialising in Pregnancy, I now also work with parents and families as a Doula – during the birth and/or postnatal period.
I currently live in Fetcham, near Leatherhead, Surrey and work at a number of locations throughout London and Surrey.

On-Site Acupressure Massage
Stress Busting Massage Treatments for Busy Professionals
The beauty of On Site Massage is that it is specifically designed for the office environment, to provide in-house stress management in 20 or 30 min massage sessions either through the clothes or with oils. This allows staff to deal with and combat specific and non-specific problem areas on a regular basis, in a convenient time frame, and at an affordable cost. It also allows management to show reward and appreciation by providing the service, either financially or supportively.

DOULA SERVICES IN SURREY AND SW LONDON
I trained as a Doula in August 2010, which for me was a natural progresson of my career as a massage therapist specialising in Pregnancy Massage and baby work.
Becoming a Doula has enabled me to truly accompany mothers on the whole of their birthing journey.
In my role as a Doula, I work with the expectant mother and her partner in a physical way, but also in an emotional and supportive role. Thus strengthening the bond between each other and baby whilst helping them to have the kind of birthing experience they would like.
What is a Doula and how do they help?
By working with a mother and offering her a continuous sense of support, skill and understanding, I help her to discover and develop the inner confidence, power and strength she has to carry her through the birthing process and into motherhood. This also involves working with her partner, if appropriate, and through teaching and discussion I encourage them to communicate and support each other through pregnancy and birth. Working as a unit, I hope to offer them ways in which they can physically and emotionally support the growth of their new family.
My Birth Doula services:
24hr On-call from 38-42weeks
Attendance at Birth if requested
2 Ante-Natal visits; including discussion of desired birth plan, meeting of other birth support persons, labour positions and massage techniques
2 Post-Natal visits; including debrief, birth discussion and feeding support
Postnatal Doula – offers continuous support in the early months, information and understanding regarding feeding and sleep choices, light house work including cooking, basic child care to enable recuperation of the new mother and support and help with the integration of Baby into the family unit and siblings lives.

“I have been having massages with Laura for several years now. I think it has benefits on a number of levels. I don’t always find or make time to take a proper lunch break but because the massage is an appointment I will always attend. This means I get away from my desk, take time out for myself and as an added benefit some of the aches and pains that build up as a result of concentrated typing are relieved. It is always the best 30 minutes of the day!”
“Laura is a skilled masseuse and her treatments have been very beneficial. I have chronic back and neck problems and regular massage helps to keep it all in check and manageable.”
“Thanks for all your incredible support and help in the first 6 months of Spike’s life. You helped me to be a better mum and your knowledge of motherhood & postnatal is endless. I would recommend you to anyone. Both my partner, my son and I think you’re amazing.”
Ran Holst, mum to Spike born March 2010
“Due to the re-grading and changes of software, extra time is on the computer, as well as taking notes of a meeting on a laptop. The treatments have been beneficial in maintenance of the Musculosketal health of the day to day life and varying work patterns of a Human Body at work.”
CW Secretary to Management Team
“I have had massages from Laura on a semi regular basis since starting at UNISON. I think it is incredibly beneficial to have this facility in the workplace, especially during stressful busy periods at work.”
“I have been attending massage sessions with Laura Hayward regularly for several years now at Mabledon Place. These sessions are very convenient and beneficial to me and I would like Laura to be able to continue to provide this service at my place of work.”
I think that the service you provide is essential in helping many of us deal with the stress side effects of our jobs.
Laura was my doula for the birth of my son James. She was really supportive throughout the preparation for the birth, the birth itself, and the months afterwards. She attended hypnobirthing classes with us and paid great attention to our wishes for the birth. Throughout the birth (24 hrs) she was with me and my husband, doing a brilliant job both physically (back massage) and emotionally.
She continued to visit for 3 months after the birth, fitting in to whatever was going on at the time.
I thoroughly recommend her!
