Leah Flora is certified in nutrition and a certified personal trainer. She began her journey down this path almost five years ago when she joined Holten Wellness Center’s team. Leah had dealt with some health ailments that needed natural attention. Once she started educating herself and applying the basic value behind holistic options she soon began to realize that she was feeling significantly better and knew she could be of help to other’s with the same issues.
She consistently attends lectures for whole food nutrition and is very passionate about sharing the information with her patients. Leah is a firm believer that depending on how an individual chooses to eat can determine how they live. Food can be the best form of medicine or worst form of poison. Leah likes to take an approach that covers a whole array of options when it comes to healing the body… exercise, eating, detoxification, supplementation, and positive thoughts. Leah teaches that your body is self-healing when you allow for proper nutrition. In her down time, she loves to be outside and spend time with her husband.
I have been a massage therapist since 2009. I am licensed by the State of Ohio Medical Board. I am also a member of the American Massage Council. I graduated from the Dayton School of Medical Massage in November of 2008. My specialties include Swedish and Neuromuscular medical massage therapies. I enjoy working in conjunction with the various services offered at Holten Wellness Center to provide restoration and help in healing.
I have been practicing massage since I received my license in 2008. My diploma came from SHI Integrative Medical Massage School and I couldn’t have asked for a better education.
Massage Therapy is more than just how I earn my wage, it’s surrounded by its own belief system and it’s how I live my life. It’s something I believe in. I believe the way to a healthy Body doesn’t have to include medication and surgery. I believe that everyone can benefit from massage. Massage is something I can do to help people, even if it is just one person at a time.
Holten Wellness Center is the perfect place for me. Rather than masking pain, as many places do, we work together with people to help heal dysfunction. All we need is a chance.
Massage to me is a whole body healing experience. It is not meant for just a moment of rest and relaxation, but a lifetime of good health. I have been a licensed massage therapist for several years and have worked for Holten Wellness Center since 2007. My specialties include Swedish, Neuromuscular and Hot Stone Massage Therapies. My goal with every patient that I work with is to make them aware that I am here for them and their needs. I believe that massage therapy in conjunction with all of our other services we offer at Holten Wellness Center can help you achieve and maintain optimal health and wellness.
