Leslie is a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT) focusing on injury prevention and rehabilitation since 2002. She received her Practitioner and Therapist certificates from Hirudaya Holistic Life Center School of Massage in San Luis Obispo, CA. She then became an instructor from 2003-2006, teaching Sports Massage and Ethics & Professionalism for Bodyworkers. Leslie additionally taught Sports Massage at the California Holistic Institute in San Luis Obispo, CA from 2012-2016. In 2014, Leslie received her Massage Therapist state certification through the California Massage Therapy Council.
While working with clients dealing with varying physical maladies, she noticed a strong body-mind connection to their challenges. This connection motivated her to learn more about body energy systems. She came to the realization that working with energy is equally, if not more important, then focusing only on body ailments through massage.
In 2018, Leslie began her mind-body education by initially becoming certified “Proficient” in Touch For Health Kinesiology theory, practice and assessment focusing on meridian energy balancing. She studied and trained under Matthew Thie, son of Touch For Health founder, John Thie D.C. through the International Kinesiology College (IKC).
She continued to expand her education by getting certified as a Clinical EFT Practitioner in 2021 through EFT Universe founded by Dawson Church, PhD.
Leslie’s guiding purpose remains strong - to help her clients heal their pain in body, mind, heart and soul - by utilizing her combined education and gifts through EFT Tapping, TFH Meridian Energy Balancing, Massage or a combination of therapies.
She knows that a session of energy balancing and massage is a step toward healing the mind-body connection to just feel better.
