I had never had a Soma Session before and was completely blown away by Leah’s attention to detail. She was able to assess my body and find the areas of pain that had been bothering me for years. No massage therapist has ever given me the care that Leah gave to me. She was able to pinpoint each pain area and spent plenty of time working out the tension. I walked away feeling more in tune with my body and... Read more »
I felt released and renewed after my Body Intuitive session with Leah. She is quietly and confidently able to catalyze deep shifts quite gently as she guides you through aspects of the subconscious and beyond. Big thumbs up for that aspect of her work.

Theta Healing with Leah was a sweet and sacred experience. I received exactly the information and confirmation that I needed. I expect the messages to continue to seep even more deeply into my body and psyche with time. Leah’s intuition was spot-on as she named and offered healing to deep and tender places, including some surprisingly specific rituals to take with me. Kind, respectful, and ego-contained, Leah is a trustworthy companion for healing body–body and soul. – J.S., WA.
Two sessions of theta healing with Leah did so much for me. Theta healing felt like having a tailor mend the fabric of my life — mind, body, and soul. Theta healing gave me another perspective. How invaluable. I was so impressed that I started looking up more information on theta healing. Leah is a rare jewel among Theta healers. With this work, it is my impression that the message is just as important as the messenger- and I... Read more »
Your healing was the first focused energy work I have experienced in a long time. I am feeling great from the work. I haven’t been fully relaxed in a bit. I appreciate your attention/intention. The most powerful part was briefly falling asleep. Most of my life, I have had a severe sleep disorder. So falling asleep is a compliment to your work. Thank you for the very powerful treatment. – R.A., CA.
It was my first time for Theta healing therapy, in general, and with Leah, truly a gift! We connected in a calm but spiritually explosive emotional healing specifically driven. Respectfully and gently addressing the specific emotions causing contrast, allowing for a clean flow of cleansing to take place. A truly guided giving and receiving experience of deep healing emotionally, that I hope to explore more deeply in the future. – R.R., Bellingham WA.
I was struck by your care, your clarity, and boundaries. Nothing felt imposed upon by you, allowing me to feel safe and open. Everything felt like an invitation, making it easy for me to participate. The next day, I felt remarkably better, especially with the back injury. It felt like I hadn’t injured myself. The work was meaningful to me as a recipient. – W.C., OR.
I value your grounded presence and the way the space was held. You were logistically and spiritually dialed in. I appreciate your subtlety. The session was every bit as real as getting a tuning fork session in person. I feel good, shifted, and in a new place.

Edema, also known as hydroposy, is a medical condition in which an excessive amount of fluid accumulates beneath the skin. If you fall and hit your knee, for instance, fluid may fill the joint to the point where it causes severe pain, discomfort and limited mobility. While one option is to have the fluid surgically drained by a physician, an alternative, less invasive option is to seek massage therapy. continue reading
Massage therapy is used to treat and prevent a wide range of diseases and adverse conditions, including stress, muscle tension, pain, inflammation and more. It’s a safe, non-invasive practice that has become increasingly popular for this very reason. You may be surprised to learn that massage therapy can also yield benefits for heart health.
Even with the advancements made in modern medicine, heart disease remains the leading cause of death among men and women in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 600,000 people in the U.S. die from heart disease each year. While diet and exercise can lower a person’s risk of developing heart disease, there is strong evidence indicating that massage therapy can help as well. continue reading
There are an estimated 40 million people in the U.S. who suffer from some type of chronic sleep disorder (source). Lack of sleep can suppress your immune system, impair memory/cognitive function, promote weight gain, and disturb your body’s normal hormonal balance.
Many people who suffer from chronic sleep disorders resort to medication sleep aids to help them fall asleep and stay asleep at night. While these medications may initially help, their effectiveness begins to diminish over time as you build a tolerance. Sleeping pills can come with potentially serious side effects like stomach bleeding and kidney failure. continue reading
Stress is something that everyone will experience at some point in their lives.

Thankfully, the centuries-old practice of massage therapy can combat stress, allowing you to live a more enjoyable, relaxed lifestyle. continue reading
Do you suffer from water retention? Our bodies contain a network of vessels that are designed to drain fluid from nearby tissue, flushing it back into the bloodstream. Known as the lymphatic system, it plays a key role in the our bodies ability to regulate internal fluid levels. But it’s not uncommon for the lymphatic system to become overwhelmed or experience other issues that inhibit its ability to perform this task.
The good news is that most cases of water retention are minor and pose no serious risk to a person’s health. With that said, it can still trigger some pretty unpleasant symptoms. Some of the most commonly reported symptoms of fluid retention include the following: continue reading

Olive is oil is nutritious, versatile food byproduct that’s used by millions of people worldwide. Some people use it as a cooking oil, while others use it as a dipping sauce. Unfortunately, though, recent studies are revealing a darker side to the olive oil business. Even though a bottle is labeled “100% olive oil,” it may actually contain other ingredients and fillers. What’s even more shocking is that most consumers can’t tell the difference between authentic and fake olive oil; therefore, they unknowingly purchase and consume a product that is essentially mislabeled. continue reading
