Leila graduated from the Grant MacEwan University 2200 hour massage therapy program in 2007 and has been active in her practice since then.
Leila’s interest in physiology and massage began at an early age as a competitive Short Track Speed Skater. Her experience as an athlete informed her awareness of the body as a whole and her belief that no ailment or dysfunction stands alone.
Leila began practicing Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) in 2009 after experiencing it for herself and seeing applications for it in her practice. She has applied her practice to:
- Post-operative edema
- Whiplash edema
- Trauma related edema
She completed her Vodder MLD/CDT certification with the Dr. Vodder School International in 2011 and now combines MLD with massage to achieve exceptional results with her clients.
Leila’s variety of massage practices includes
- Hot Stone Massage
- Sports Massage
- Therapeutic treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries
- Pre-natal massage
Sessions with Leila always reflect a balanced approach to the mind/body as well as the unique needs of each client.
Outside of her work Leila enjoys the company of her family, friends and dogs, camping, snowboarding and cycling.
