Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Deep Tissue
Techniques that utilize deep-tissue/deep-muscle massage are administered to affect the sub-layer of musculature and fascia. These techniques require advanced training and a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep-tissue massage, otherwise tight surface muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature. It helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques
Myofascial Release
Medical Massage requires a firm background in pathology and utilizes specific treatments appropriate to working with disease, pain, and recovery from injury. The therapist may work from a physicians prescription or as an adjunct healer within a hospital or physical therapy setting.
Neuromuscular
Medical Massage requires a firm background in pathology and utilizes specific treatments appropriate to working with disease, pain, and recovery from injury. The therapist may work from a physicians prescription or as an adjunct healer within a hospital or physical therapy setting.
Shiatsu
Developed in Japan, shiatsu is a finger-pressure technique utilizing traditional acupuncture points. Similar to acupressure, shiatsu concentrates on unblocking the flow of life energy and restoring balance in the meridians and organs in order to promote self-healing. With the client reclining, the practitioner applies pressure with the finger, thumb, palm, elbow, or knee to specific zones on the skin located along the energy meridians. The treatment brings about a sense of relaxation while stimulating blood and lymphatic flow. The benefits of this treatment may include pain relief and a strengthening of the body’s resistance to disease and disorder
Swedish
Benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury. One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The disrobed client is covered by a sheet, with only the area being worked on exposed. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibrational, percussive, and tapping movements, with the application of oil, to reduce friction on the skin.
Pregnancy
Pre and Post Natal massage
Medical
Medical Massage requires a firm background in pathology and utilizes specific treatments appropriate to working with disease, pain, and recovery from injury. The therapist may work from a physicians prescription or as an adjunct healer within a hospital or physical therapy setting. Medical Massage is prescribed by Physcians for Specific injury and/or physical conditions. Require Prescription from a Doctor Some treatments may be covered by insurance
Reiki
Reiki is a form of energy healing that can help alleviate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual stress. It is a way to ‘tune-up’ your energy to it’s healthiest state allowing for healing to take place. Reiki is a gentle and safe healing practice that is geared towards removing any energy blocks in our system caused by emotional, mental or physical stress and pain. Reiki energy, also known as the Universal Life Force Energy, is not the practitioner's energy. It is a divinely guided energy that knows exactly where the blocks are and pushes them out as well as fills up the energy gas tanks wherever you are low in energy. And because Reiki does not use the practitioner's energy it is safe for both the practitioner as well as the Reiki recipient. You do not run the risk of absorbing the practitioner's energy and vice versa.
Chair Massage
Chair massage--also called seated or on-site massage--provides a host of benefits, including reducing stress, improving mental clarity, and enhancing work performance. And the time investment is minimal: short five-, ten- or fifteen-minute sessions can often do the trick.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle method of promoting movement of lymph into and through the lymphatic vessels. It reduces edema, a condition in which the tissues of the body contain an excessive amount of fluid.

I was diagnosed by my Internal Medicine M.D. as having extreme arthritis. I was unable to type, play the piano, (I am a former piano teacher), or shuffle cards. Since being treated by Les, I can do all of the above, though there is still some stiffness with my left hand, but I believe that will be gone in a short while. I especially like the cupping.

Being a competitive para-cyclist it's difficult to find someone willing to work on anyone with a disability who doesn't freak out if I spasm while on the table. Les took the time to understand what it was I did and how he could help in that process. I have no doubt that Les contributed greatly to my success this year. Even though I didn't get selected to the Rio Paralympics my World Cup Championship speaks volumes about the people I have surrounded myself with to be successful. Thank you Les for doing what you do!!

Les is awesome! I had severe back pain. Regular deep tissue massages at other places did not bring any relief. After getting a medical massage done by Les, my back feels great. I experienced no pain the next day.

I like that Les did lather me oil or lotion. Les use very little. Only enough to work the muscle that he was working on. Beside that, I thought Les was very skilled and professional. Les worked out what I needed, and I felt better. So much better, that I rebooked another appointment. Thanks a bunch Les.

I had the Medical massage. I noticed Les used different massage techniques than my last visit for my knee injury. I can tell you, after a session with Lee, It's a wonderful feeling to be able to walk out of there without a limp. Thank you Lee

What is not to like? I enjoyed a full body massage. This caregiver is able to locate all ills without guidance. He has worked in concert with my new chiropractor. together they have corrected a disformed bone structure in my neck and worked on all the area affected by neck adjustments. I have experienced alignment issues with back, legs and feet and all are coming around.
