Cleaning out mental clutter
"Leslie helped me too seek out and reprogram that place where stress manifests into physical chaos. To use my own words while using tapping technique to not accept or give energy to any physical invasion or discomfort and to look at the end goal rather than the bumps along the way of my journey. Also the kinesiology and pelvic adjustments she administered brought relief from the pain I was experiencing prior and got me back on track and on point." Kenny Lee Lewis
"I found Leslie to be very perceptive and empathetic. She taught me a lot about my body and my soul. I am looking forward to my next appointment with her." Jane Monroe
"I am a new client of Leslie's and was very pleased with the hour massage. She was thorough and attentive and communicative." Jim R.
Working with the whole person
"I appreciate Leslie's ability to see how the physical and emotional aspects of being are interwoven and to work with me as a whole person, not just an injured shoulder. She is knowledgeable about the meridian system which she uses to enhance her skills as a massage therapist, intuitively knowing what is needed. She is also respectful of boundaries and does not impose any agendas. I feel better after each session, more in tune with my body. I highly recommend Leslie to all my friends! " Mary S.
Next-level body work
"Leslie's experience, education and intuition are what sets her practice apart. She truly has a gift for creating positive change in the mind-body-mind connection.

Whether you are seeking traditional muscle therapy, energy work, eastern practice, or all of the above, I highly recommend trying her services." Stacey R.
"What I love about Leslie is her concern for my overall wellness. Her massages are incredible but along with that she shows me how my emotions affect areas of my body and how addressing them both mentally and physically (through massage) has a very positive result. She IS the best!!!" Margaret Montgomery
