Laura Pensiero is a Brooklyn based artist, compassionate teacher, and dedicated healer. In addition to being a certified Reiki Master, Breathwork Healer, and Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Laura holds a BFA in acting from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. She teaches Breathwork and Reiki at Maggie Flanigan Studio, Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop and has a private practice.
For the last fifteen years, she has been pursuing a career in acting. As she drudged through the aspiring actor grind of auditions, cold calls, headshots and competition, she was introduced to Reiki. Through receiving Reiki healing and then getting initiated as a Reiki healer, she had a spiritual awakening.
This awakening made very clear to her the pain artists, especially actors, endure on a daily basis. Actors are under constant scrutiny auditioning, meeting with casting directors and forced to market themselves as a product. If they are lucky enough to book the role, they will endure rigorous work hours and emotionally draining scenes. Her dream is to help heal the body, mind and spirit of actors and artists clearing their energy fields and giving them the clarity to create. It is in this place of physical, emotional and mental freedom that passion and productivity thrive.
As a high performer having dealt with anxiety and addiction herself, she specializes in working with clients helping them overcome mental and physical addictions and releasing the trauma behind the addiction from the body and mind. It is through the care of one's self that the artist is able to create. Laura’s professional mission is to give her clients the tools needed to lead a fuller, more empowered, and creative life.
