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.  

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.

Dry brushing was a new experience for me.

Leigh Ann makes you feel like you are her only patient. What she does is so therapeutic physically and mentally.
by Melinda on Feb 11
I have had nothing but good experiences with Leigh Ann. Not only is she highly skilled, she is also unbelievably gifted. It is as if she can "read" what my body needs to have done in order to get better. She always asks plenty of questions so she can better target the problem areas and determine what strategies to use. In addition, during my visit she educates me about things I can do to prevent the pain/problems from reoccurring and offers tons of helpful health tips. She is amazing!

Always a treat to have a relaxing massage from Oasis!
by Anonymous on Feb 02
I visited Oasis for the first time last week for Lymphatic Drainage and pain management for 2 herniated discs. Leigh Ann was very professional and knowledgeable about my needs based on my medical history. I am a Lyme disease patient and she was very well versed in my condition which I can't even say for most physicians around here. She was tentative and listened and it was the best massage experience I have had thus far. I would recommend her to anyone! She books fast and pretty far out, just a warning. But it is worth it! Just plan ahead.

The only reason I didn't give all five stars for ambiance was because the music that was playing kept stopping and she had to go turn it back on a couple of times. Other than that, it was a wonderfully relaxing and great experience, as always. Thank you!
