Leslie Stager

Dedicated to serving women using the Power of Presence and Touch, Leslie Stager RN, lMT provides quality In-Person and Online education focused on advanced, holistic, bodywork skills that support women’s health. Leslie’s bodywork philosophy is: “The best bodywork arises from advanced technical skill blended with deep listening to the body wisdom, intelligent and compassionate responsiveness, and attention to body-mind-spirit. Healing comes when we enter “body-time”, vs “clock-time”, remembering that healing is much more than relieving physical pain.”

Classes are comprehensive and holistic, taught with appreciation of women’s special concerns and cycles, and with awareness and respect for the profound rites of passage of fertility, pregnancy, birth, mothering, and menopause.  Apart from this work, Leslie may be hiking, tango dancing, playing accordion, writing, or just enjoying the sensory delights of being in a human body on planet earth!
