Meet the team

Lauren Nester, BSN, RN, LMBT #17781

We are delighted to announce our newest member to our THIOH tribe. Please join us in welcoming nurse massage therapist, Lauren Nester, BSN, RN, LMBT.

Lauren joins us with a robust background in acute care working in high-stress nursing roles in Hospice, ICU and Step-down, and as an ICU traveling nurse.

She holds a BA in Psychology; Cum Laude from the University of Maryland, and a BSN from UNC Chapel Hill (Go Heels!).

Lauren’s massage gifts are centered around combining nursing knowledge and nursing care with massage and bodywork therapy to lessen pain and discomfort, increase range of motion, and improve quality of life. Her passions are around orthopedic massage, medical massage, sports massage, stretch therapy, as well as hot stone and energy work.  Her nursing ethics, passion for healing, kind heart, and strong hands make her an excellent fit for The Health Institute of Hampstead.

Fun fact about Lauren: She enjoys traveling, but her favorite places to travel are caves and beaches! She is a spelunker and has been to almost 40 states to see over 200 caves.  She also loves walking the beach to collect shark teeth, odd shapped shells, and sea roses. 

Please join us in welcoming Lauren.  She is available for weekday and weekend appointments.
