Leslie Walter - Massage Therapist
My love for massage began with my love for running. While studying textile design at Savannah College of Art and Design, I made a decision to change how I looked and felt. I started running, began cooking like an adult, and lost over 90 pounds. After many races, I ran the Chicago Marathon in 2012. It felt amazing to take control of my life and my health and I knew I wanted to share that feeling with others.
My passion for understanding the human body continues to push me to deepen and refine my knowledge and techniques. After graduating from The Chicago School of Massage Therapy in 2009, I pursued additional certification in the technique of Myofascial Release, pre and post natal massage, and Zen Shiatsu.
I found my heart and voice in massage. When I'm not practicing or studying, you can find me exploring nature, cuddling my dog, or chasing my toddler. I love to run or hike and some of my favorite trails are the Appalachian trail GA, Black Hills SD, Great Keppel Is NSW, Savannah GA, and Red Rocks NV.
