Leslie Daley MFA, RYT500, MS OTR/L is a licensed occupational therapist having earned her Master of Science degree from Columbia University in 2012. With a diverse background in health, wellness and healing, she has studied a variety of healing modalities including Trager, Ohashi Shiatsu, Reiki, the Alexander Technique, and therapeutic yoga. She discovered John Barnes Myofascial Release as a client in need. As her injuries and chronic pain profoundly improved with treatment, she felt called to offer this work to others. Myofascial Release is unlike any form of therapy today as it focuses on treating the fascia, or connective tissue system, using gentle, sustained pressure that reduces the pull of bound tissues on pain-sensitive areas. MFR produces consistent results in reducing pain, restoring motion and improving quality of life.
As a thirty-year yoga practitioner and long-time teacher, Leslie incorporates yoga into treatment as a way to release painful mental and physical patterns through breath-centered movement and deeply relaxing supported postures. Whether your goal is to reduce pain, dysfunction or stress, enhance recovery from an injury or illness, or develop healthy habits and a more balanced life, she can work with you to create a program that uniquely addresses your concerns and values.
