Leigh-Ann has been a qualified massage therapist for a very long time but became quite serious about massage in the last ten years. Having experienced many different types of bodywork and enjoyed all the benefits of massage therapy, Leigh-Ann wanted to learn herself. The more Leigh-Ann has learnt about massage and the human body, the more she wants to know.
Leigh-Ann’s journey with massage is ongoing. She believes that experience is vital as every body is different and people always respond in different ways. This can also be influenced by many other factors in a client’s life. Leigh-Ann encourages people to try different types of massage and therapists to find out what works best for them. She continues to learn from her numerous clients and grow as a much loved and valued massage therapist at Karrinyup Wellness Centre.
Leigh-Ann finds massage therapy extremely rewarding and her experience is that her clients will usually experience benefits straight after receiving therapy. She enjoys learning new techniques or different ways to approach certain issues and finds it exciting and challenging as every client is different. Leigh-Ann’s main passion is the realignment of the body and therefore the reinforcement of the mind-body connection.
