Lauriann Greene is a licensed massage therapist, and former pianist and orchestra conductor. Her background in musical performance combined with her skills in massage led to an interest in repetitive stress injuries of the hands. Her article on this subject was the cover story of the Spring, 1994 issue of Massage Therapy Journal. Massage-related wrist injuries motivated her to create the "Save Your Hands!" workshops for massage therapists and the book Save Your Hands! Injury Prevention for Hands-On Health Practitioners (1995).
