COVID19 Information -  My practice is closed but I have set a tentative reopen date of May 20th.  I am currently doing everything I can to create a space that is safe and comforting and in compliance with the Arkansas Department of Health Guidelines as well as those highly recommended by my professional society, ABMP.  In "Phase One" of reopening I will only be seeing existing, well established clients.  I will see no more than 4 clients per day for no greater than 60 minutes per session and there will be 45-60 minutes between each client for cleaning.  If you would like to book an appointment, please send me your request to oasisappts@gmail.com as I am not allowing self scheduling online at this time.  Thank you for your patience and understanding. 


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.

I have a lot of back problems. Leigh Ann has helped me tremendously through the years. I appreciate her professionalism.

Oasis is doing everything they can to provide a clean, safe environment for their clients during the Pandemic. I felt their safety practices are better than some medical offices I’ve been in. Leigh Ann always provides a wonderful, relaxing massage but this time she even included tips for deep breathing exercises.

A welcomed relief to finally have a massage.

Leigh Ann is the most knowledgeable, professional, and effective massage therapist I’ve ever used. Her understanding of anatomy and of how the musculoskeletal system and fasciae function is impressive. I wish all my medical professionals were as intellectually curious, kind, compassionate, and passionate about their work and about improving my health as she is! I can’t say enough great things about her!
