Leslie's Clients Say:
"I had an exceptional massage with Leslie on Saturday. As I am recovering from surgery, she knew all the right areas to work on to help with with radiating pain from the surgery site. She really is very intuitive about how to relieve pain and stress. She's also a very caring and kind person overall." Anna W., 9/2017
"Slept wrong and my neck was a mess, Leslie was able to get me back to a normal human in no time. Very good and extremely professional!" William S., Nov 2016
"After my SX, it was time for a massage and oh my goodness! I just received the best post lymphatic drainage massage from Leslie ever! After we were done it felt like I had permanently found my happy place in life. When I arrived the staff was courteous and so friendly. They quickly took me to the back to fill out paperwork and shortly after that Leslie arrived to take me to my room. She had a nice conversation with me and detailed everything that she was going to do. It somehow felt like she was able to answer more questions than my doctor! She was so amazing during the massage that I literally felt like I was in heaven. The time that she took on all the parts of my body almost put me into a different world. I'm telling you if you want to come out feeling refreshed, renewed and wishing your next massage appointment with her was literally the next morning, then go see Leslie! You won't regret it!Leasley-Anne G., 7/2016
