Negative stress takes a toll on our lives and health and can lead to high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, anxiety and depression, among other problems.  Here's a list of some of the most effective natural stress reducers:
    Massage:  Everybody loves a massage.  But did you know that it's been used as a stress reliever for thousands of years?  Historicallly, the Chinese used massage to open blocked energy channels in order to improve health...Today, we use massage to relax tense muscles, reduce pain and improve circulation, which can all do wonders for the mind.

Read below how people have experienced  all of that and more at the Health Studio.


"I had suffered with constant severe shoulder pain from an on the job injury for over 7 years.  After one session with Leiah the pain was gone."                                                                

I suffer with arthritis in my lower back (L-5, S-1).  Through seeing Leiah bi-monthly I am able to manage my pain and discomfort naturally and still maintain a full active, and joy filled life.


"I had suffered with pain and discomfort in my left shoulder for months.  I had tried everything.  Medication only reduced the symptoms.  After receiving therapy with Leiah I can use my shoulder again and have regained my active lifestyle."


I had suffered a massive stroke that effected my entire right side.  I had difficulty walking and could not relax my right arm. I had extreme pain when attempting to lift or straighten my arm.  I saw amazing results after the first sound massage session, and would highly recommend this technique for anyone in pain.

 I've been a client of Leiah's since around October, 2008.  I've suffered from fibromyalgia since about 1990. My worst "hot spot" is my left shoulder, which had gotten to the point of aching so badly it was causing me to be in some form of  constant discomfort . After my very first visit with Leiah, the pain was gone. I was in disbelief, so much so that  I walked around nervously for a couple of days, waiting for the pain to return. It didn't, which was even more of a shock to me. I have been to other therapists, and they've been great, but there really is something special about Leiah's touch. It really must be experienced; I don't think I can adequately put into words how her massage technique actually feels. While I still have the occasional flare-up, which nothing can prevent, regular visits with Leiah have tremendously helped lessen their severity and duration. Whether you're looking for relaxation, pain relief, or to revitalize, I would highly recommend treating yourself to Leiah's magic touch. She's definitely worth it!!

(Many fibromyalgia patients turn to Massage Therapy to alleviate pain, and research has shown that Massage eases symptoms, decreases pain and improves sleep in fibromyalgia patients)


I have suffered with neuropathy for many years.  I have tried several medications and treatments to help me, none of which provided any relief.  Leiah treated me with several different techniques and after a few sessions the pain is gone!  I am able to walk pain free again and enjoy my life.  She has brought quality of life back to me again.  I highly recommend her as a therapist who gets results.
