Entering the Health Studio is like entering a serene world far away from the pain and stress of daily living. The Health Studio was established as a place where people could come to experience natural pain and stress relief. Leiah found in her own journey of healing from traumatic auto accidents that there was a piece missing in the conventional medical approach. After the patient was released from the ER or hospital stay, and beyond the prescription solution, there was no other avenue for the patient to recover. Thus in her own journey she began the quest for additional health solutions. Her desire was to find ways to restore peace, balance and eliminate pain naturally. She began to study multiple modalities in this search for health and healing. This eventually led to her receiving her license in Massage Therapy. Massage was one of the keys in her healing process and the relief of constant pain. She has coupled this with many other natural techniques that she shares with others.
The Health Studio provides natural pain and stress relief therapies, natural health products, and self empowering educational opportunities to help yourself or others. We invite you to come and experience one of the many avenues through which we help to restore balance, reduce pain, and assist in the health and healing journey
