About Across Counties

A word from Lauren…

Hello and thank you for visiting my website! I want to be clear that my goal is to get you or your horse as healthy as possible as fast as possible, not get you to buy more hours. I measure my success in healthy clients and strive to drive that number up as high as possible. You can count on me to always be transparent and honest and give nothing but my best every session. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions you may have, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


Attention to Detail

At LW Across Counties we aim to help through the power of therapy, including massage and rehabilitation following injuries, surgery, or just maintenance.


Lauren began at Moulton College, Northampton, where she completed an Equine Rehabilitation course in 2017, coming out with a D*D*D* (equivalent to 3 A-Levels). She then went on to complete a Level 5 Diploma at Oxford School of Sports Massage (OSSM) in July 2018. She worked and studied part-time for the next few years, earning a kinesiology taping qualification in 2020 and a Level 5 Diploma in Equine Sports Massage and Rehabilitation in May 2021. In spare time, Lauren spends time with her horse doing what they do best together and getting out to competitions as much as they can. The pursuit of a career in therapy came to Lauren after her horse became injured and found a way of helping him to heal much quicker through certain massage techniques.

Lauren has treated several of my horses on 4 occasions with good results. She has been able to identify areas of soreness and weakness that have related to how the horses have felt under saddle and how they have presented visually while working with them from the ground. Each of the horses who were currently in work felt looser and more comfortable after each of Lauren’s visits. Some of the older horses who are retired due to lameness issues have also benefited from their sessions and have appeared to be more comfortable in the weeks following their treatments.

Ruth Whitmore

Lauren started treating Scrum as he was very stiff down one side, and tight across his back. After his first treatment she managed to also release a lot of tension in his neck, and although unsure at first, it must have made the world of difference to him as he couldn't help but let out a little buck as we cantered across the school! All that excitement at his new found freedom! The follow up sessions he has really relaxed into, now he knows what she is doing and that it will feel nice. She has been very patient and reassuring with him and taken things at his speed while he has been getting to know her...

Julia Pearse

I've had Lauren come to treat 4 of my horses/ponies since she started on the massage course. I have always found her very polite and professional, with a caring and understanding attitude towards the horses - my daughter's dressage pony isn't a fan of massage and can be quite grumpy but Lauren handles her perfectly!! She has been very thorough, firstly in getting a history of what the horses do and what any specific problems may be, and then in assessing and massaging them. She always takes plenty of time on each horse, doesn't leave any areas out and goes over what she's found afterwards...

Lauren is very thorough when she massages my horse, Misty. She has a systematic approach to the process, which Misty accepts and puts her at her ease. During the six months or so that Lauren has been treating Misty, I have seen a very noticeable difference in her suppleness. Misty particularly enjoys having her neck and shoulders massaged and is very expressive in her appreciation! I happily recommend Lauren's professional skills to any horse owner.

Susan Hill

Lauren is very professional and knowledgeable. After a session my back feels much better and I have more freedom of movement.

Paul Whitmore

Lauren has been treating whilst I’ve been in training for my boxing match, I remain injury free and recover quickly from tough training sessions.

Samantha Morris

After injuring my ankle and having ongoing problems with it the sports massage has helped so much! My ankle has a better range of movement and has reduced pain! Regular sports massages have helped me carrying on exercising and dancing despite my injury! Would recommend to anyone with or without an injury!

Alice Reynolds

Always a great service. Have been a few times and feel so much better after my massage with Lauren, very professional! Would definitely recommend - see you in a few weeks!

Meg Russel

Very professional and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Lauren discussed with me what muscles were going to be worked on and the benefits as well as answering any questions I had! I had a few sessions on my legs when training for the marathon and I could definitely feel the benefits! I would definitely recommend to anyone taking on a sporting challenge or that take part in regular training or activity!
