Laura FitzSimmons


In the midst of life’s most profound changes—grief, loss, or the quiet introspection of the “Empty Nesting” years—you’ll find a guiding light in me. With over three decades in healthcare, specialized skills in Lymphedema Therapy, and a nurturing presence as a Reiki Master, I’ve now extended my practice to life coaching with a focus on rediscovering joy and clarity. Life After is more than a service; it’s a compassionate community ready to walk alongside you as you emerge from the fog of transition to a path that resonates with your deepest desires. Let’s honor your journey and rekindle the unique joy that awaits in your life after loss.


Laura brings her broad professional and personal education to her healing table.

Her intuitive ability to adjust her treatments to the need of her clients is outstanding. She generously offers me suggestions for self-care between appointments. And best of all, every time I meet with her I walk away with a calmer mind and body. I wholeheartedly recommend Laura as a practitioner

I felt so relaxed!
As a new mama, I was in need of Reiki and Laura was able to provide the exact energy work I needed. She was also very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Laura is very professional.
She helped me through my breast cancer lymphedema. My arm is less swollen and the pain has been reduced
Laura is an incredible healer - intuitive, perceptive.
The salt stone massage was incredible- relaxing yet uplifting. I loved all the little touches like essential oils and CBD lotion. I felt amazing and slept great afterward. I’ll be back!
Laura is amazingly intuitive.
She knew my problem areas right away and was also a joy to connect with. I feel better overall after just one session… and I actually slept well last night for the first time in I cannot remember.
Laura is a true healer in every sense of the word.
She is highly skilled and equally empathic, turning a healing service into a fully mindful experience. I left feeling relaxed, centered, and full of joy.
Loved her explanation of everything
I have a good understanding of what she was going to do and why. Her “soft” touch and ambience of her room was peaceful and caused less anxiety – she was re-assuring. Also, my measurements of my arm with lymphedema decreased considerably after just one treatment. And my blood pressure also declined considerably (top number 148 to 135). She gave me simple techniques I can do at home to help as well. GREAT EXPERIENCE!
