About Us

Laura Chao

Hi, my name is Laura Chao and I am the founder of Hope Wellness. Through my own path, I reached clarity, happiness, balance, and inner peace. This journey has inspired me to share it with others.

Now more than ever, it is important to learn the art of self-healing and to take care of your emotional and physical health. Laura Chao created Hope Wellness with the goal of improving people’s lives with wellness one person at a time. Hope Wellness was developed to facilitate healing and positive changes in all aspects of life through personalized sessions using Reiki, energy healing, hypnotherapy, meditation, and coaching.

Some things about me:

  •  I absolutely love my work. I am 100% committed to it and my clients’ results

  • I was born in a small West Texas town, my family moved to San Antonio, Texas where I made a conscious choice to surround myself with people who taught me valuable life lessons.

  • Movedto Miami in 1993, with a career in place and the continuation of a college education.
  • Spirituality and learning how the mind works are my passions and I have dedicated myself to understanding everything I possibly can about these subjects

  • I love to travel and getting to know new cultures

  •  I love to laugh

  •  I don’t take myself too seriously

  • ​I decided I want to live in a beautiful, happy state of mind for the rest of my life. It doesn’t mean I don’t get sad, angry or frustrated. It means I don’t stay in that state for very long. The quality of life is how you live emotionally.
