Leah’s mission with massage is to help people achieve wellness in the body as well as the mind. This idea of being a massage therapist wasn’t a dream that just popped up over night; this was a ten year dream in the making. With the support of her friends and family she enrolled in the Waubonsee massage program. During this program she really enjoyed the idea that one small muscle could be the culprit that can cause a large amount of problems; meaning the solution to the problem may be easier to find than people/clients would think. Leah also likes the idea of helping individuals live a happier and healthier life with Massage Therapy.
