Specializing in Gentle Pain Management and Nurturing Touch for all Ages

I opened Oasis Massage Therapy in March of 2012 after 18 years of medical office management.  Working in plastic and reconstructive surgery and gastroenterology, I learned the body "inside and out" you might say.  This knowledge has enhanced my massage and bodywork skills. I believe my deep faith enhances my intuitive skills and my desire to help others is expressed in my nurturing style.

I opened Oasis Massage Therapy in March of 2012 after 18 years of medical office management.  Working in plastic and reconstructive surgery and gastroenterology, I learned the body "inside and out" you might say.  This knowledge has enhanced my massage and bodywork skills. I believe my deep faith enhances my intuitive skills and my desire to help others is expressed in my nurturing style.  

Since graduating massage therapy school (LMT) I have acquired my (MMT) Master Massage Therapist designation, obtained a certification in Pediatric Massage through the Liddle Kidz Foundation (CPMT) and national certification in Manual Lymph Drainage through Klose (CMLDT).  In May of 2015 I attended Oncology Massage training in Austin, TX with Tracy Walton and as a result, I am now a Preferred Provider with S4OM, Society for Oncology Massage. Needless to say, I am a nerd when it comes to education.  My style of massage is "Integrative" meaning I incorporate many styles and techniques in one session to produce the best result.  My sessions may include; Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trager, CORE Bodywork (Noah Karrasch style rolfing) Manual Lymph Drainage, SMRT (Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique, Sports Massage, Assisted Stretching, Nurturing touch and energy work.  My session fee is all inclusive and I do not charge additional fees for use of hot or cold stones, table warmer, hot paraffin wraps or essential oils.  Clients book sessions by length of time. At the time of the appointment I will determine the nature of the visit and work with the client to customize the session based on their needs that day. 

To quote Noah Karrasch, "Always coax the muscle. Never force it." To that end, I believe in working at the "hurts so good" level and not beyond. In my experience, once the body registers true pain the "fight and flight" response is triggered and the body braces for the pain and my work becomes ineffective. I believe in working with the body, not against it. Gentle, effective pain relief and management is my goal.  I provide care to ages 5 to 100.  I also provide Hospice Care at no charge and offer reduced rates to healthcare providers and caregivers.

Peace, love and light,

Leigh Ann Warriner, MMT, CPMT, CMLDT

Medical Office Management

Prior to attending massage school I worked as a medical office manager for 18 years; 11 years in plastic and reconstructive surgery and 7 years in gastroenterology. My experience is vast and includes everything from coding and billing to assisting in the exam rooms during office procedures and educating patients regarding postoperative care. I have a through understanding of the body, inside and out.

Mom and former athlete

In my younger years I danced for 13 years and worked as a student teacher. In the summers I worked as a lifeguard at a very demanding swim club. My son played soccer and I served as team manager and was a FIFA referee. He went on to play rugby for the Arkansas Razorback Rugby team. My daughter, like me, loved dance. She danced studied with Sonshine Academy, Blackbird Academy, Shuffles Ballet under Arlene Sugano and the Nashville Ballet, Nashville, Tennessee. I know how to work with the unique problems experienced by young athletes with growing and changing bodies.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Leigh Ann is aware of my situation and is attentive. Her touch is almost magical as she kneads tense muscles or injuries. With every visit I look forward to that feeling of elation and peace of the last visit only to have it surpassed. Thank you for service far beyond my expectations with every visit.
