My name is Laura Hayward.
I have been learning and practicing Reiki all my life. My father is a Reiki Master in England, and I followed in his footsteps, becoming a Reiki Master myself when I moved from London to New York in 2017.
I am passionate about birth and like to bring Reiki into my work as a HypnoBirth Doula. I find that this helps with pain management, brings a state of calm, and balances the energy in the birthing room.
In addition to this Energy work, I also incorporate the healing power of animals and nature into my practise with Animal Assisted sessions.
My wife and I live in the Hamptons, New York, with our cats, dogs, chickens and horse.
"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves"

Laura's presence is both dependable, rooted and fiery. You feel immediately at ease and drawn in. Her energy work with Reiki and Sound Healing has shifted me into a higher vibration, feeling aligned and inspired. I also find her insights into other healing avenues to explore have been completely on target and supported me on my path in ways that are still unfolding.
I could have not asked for a better first experience with Reiki! I didn't know quite what to expect, but Laura's calm and focused energy was reassuring from the moment I walked in the room. I left the session feeling lighter and more relaxed. I definitely want to make this a regular part of my self care routine.
