Lela White has been in practice for 18 years, focusing her entire career in the Sports Medicine sector working under the guidance of Doctors, Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers to provide Clinical Soft Tissue Mobilization for patients and athletes. After earning her degree in Exercise Science from VCU she taught Kinesiology at University of Richmond for several years before moving on to teach at her alma mater, the Lotus Professional College.  While teaching there she met fellow educator and therapist Kristin Gaulin which inspired Lela to build a team of experienced Massage Therapists that could work together to provide focused treatment for athletes and people managing chronic conditions. Her practice is trusted by an extensive referral network of athletic clubs, Physical Therapists and Doctors throughout Richmond. 


Lela receives Massage Therapy on a regular basis as part of her maintenance routine for her Scoliosis and understands on a very personal level how integral Sports Massage/ Clinical Soft Tissue Mobilization can be to achieving a healthy lifestyle. She is extremely grateful for her community, colleagues, patrons and the ability to practice what she loves.

Greatly improved my limitations from my injury. She also provides information and explanations of the physical systems and mechanisms impacted.

I was able to have the best run I have in a while after my first massage with her. I was more mobile and flexible which allowed me to have a great run!

Lela is amazing at shoulder issues. Partway through my frozen shoulder treatment, I started working with her. After every massage, my physical therapist would note amazing improvements.

Lela provides education to carryover on my own to improve my mobility and decrease my discomfort/pain.

I have often left Dr offices not knowing what exactly the problem or treatment plan was. With Lela, she is so professional and knowledgeable, she explains everything clearly and in a way I could understand. With her treatment plan I have no doubt I will be back to my normal exercise routine sooner rather than later, Thanks Lela

Lela has been my massage therapist now for about 7 years. Her knowledge, education, skills, professionalism and work ethic are outstanding. As a competitive athlete, massage therapy is a critical component of my recovery. From day one, Lela has had a unique intuitive ability to sense what is needed on each visit and provide it. She has kept me injury free and able to train consistently, which is a critical component to performance improvement.
