Testimonials

I have had several treatments from Leslie and always feel as though I have struck gold. She combines my favorite 3 modalities: acupuncture, massage and wellness counseling. She is very thorough and has a peace about her which inspires confidence and relaxation.

I always have curiosity about natural approaches to help me with my challenges with focus, low energy, and sleeping difficulty.  The hands-on type of work that Leslie offers seems to go the furthest in making a difference with these health challenges.   I felt myself to be in the best of hands with her care, and I am hoping to revisit her soon.  I love the combination of acupuncture, cupping, and bodywork.  She has very strong hands and a gentle coaxing touch.
