A strong background in ballet, music, visual arts, and equestrian sports, allows me to combine rhythm, finesse, creativity and focus to ensure the client receives the very best massage.

Having experienced the great benefits of massage after a disastrous fall off a horse, weekly massage therapy became an integrated part of my recovery and allowed me to heal more quickly by increasing circulation, minimizing scar tissue, increasing mobility, range of motion, and improving immunity, making me feel better and stronger in general.

As a result of this experience, I have great empathy and respect for those living with daily pain. In my 13 plus years experience, as a Massage Therapist, I've had the honor of assisting  clients, from infancy to 92 years of age, to live a happier and healthier life.

I like how everything is explained while you're doing it in layman's terms.

Very professional and comfortable.

This was my first massage with Leslie at PAUSE and I loved it! The quiet and calm greeting was just what I needed to erase the rest of the day and let my body truly absorb the healing touch of Leslie's skillful hands. I will definitely be back!

I loved the eye mask and back warmer! Everything was so warm and cozy and relaxing. Pressure was perfect. The best massage I've had in YEARS! Thank you!

Leslie Ann has a warm, calm and totally cozy massage studio. From the lovely scents to the warm soft sheets on the massage table and of course her amazing hands, everything adds up to total relaxation.

I can't imagine going anywhere else for a massage. Leslie Anne's attention, intuition and talent exceed expectations. She takes very special care to listen to her clients' needs and is always seeking to expand her skills to bring new techniques to her therapy sessions. Her "healing hands" never cease to leave me feeling refreshed and relaxed.

I had an amazing raindrop therapy with Leslie Ann and am so happy I did. Her skill is outstanding and the studio is warm and inviting. I will be back!
