About Laura

I live in Southeast Manitoba with my husband and four children. I’m excited to bring the work of the Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® to our region; my family and I have already gained much by finding ABM and it is very rewarding work.

I graduated with a degree in physiotherapy in 2004, and practiced in public health care until 2013. I had often wished that I could do more for the patients and clients under my care and I feel that ABM is the best way to do this. The ABM philosophy of connecting and working with my client’s neurological system instead of trying to force outcomes is exactly what was missing.

In 2013 I was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. I chose to leave my physiotherapy career behind and focus on my health and the health of my family. It was also during this time that four of the six of us were diagnosed with various tick-borne illnesses. It was an incredibly difficult journey, but it drove me to research holistic healing alternatives.

This journey eventually led to experiencing ABM. I loved how I felt after a session and I began moving in new, easier ways. Around this time three members of our family were diagnosed with ADHD. Through ABM we found a new way to bring healing and functioning to our family that traditional ADHD treatment lacked. I noticed improvements in their focus, clarity of mind, and increased spatial awareness.

Once I regained my health I decided that I needed to sign up for the practitioner training program. This past year our family has experienced major change and intense challenges. Through the ABM training process, I developed greater resilience of spirit and body that gave me the emotional and physical strength I needed to navigate these challenges.

I am running Functional Synthesis lessons in my home near Kleefeld, and can travel throughout Southeastern Manitoba to your home. I will also hold online group lessons via Zoom.

What Carolyn's Clients are Saying

Vitality concept_ Silhouette of happy wo

I met Laura Friesen purely by accident, and I'm so happy I did! 


I'd only recently even heard of the benefits of NeuroMovement, and Laura was so warm and knowledgeable, that I was excited to see if it helped some long term issues I'd had with the right side of my body.                               


Laura was amazing! I felt as light as a feather when she had finished. The real surprise came later that day when I'd returned home. I'd completely forgotten that I never swing my right arm while walking. Only my left. I laughed out loud when I suddenly realized both arms were swinging as I walked!           


I highly recommend Laura for her peaceful and competent manner, and especially for her expertise. She is a gift!
