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.

It was my first time to have a warm stone massage and I probably wouldn’t have thought about trying it if Leslie hadn’t sent out an email advertising a special for it! It felt great, and the next day I woke up feeling refreshed with none of the usual “old age” aches and pains. It was a wonderful experience everyone should try!

Leslie is amazing. She is the perfect blend of soothing energy, and love for what she does. I highly recommend Leslie as a massage therapist I haven’t felt this good in a while.
