Massage INsight! is

waiting for you at the finish line. Whether you just finished a long day at work, a tough workout at the gym, or are keeping up with the marathon of life, therapeutic massage can ease the aches and pains along the way.

      I provide anatomically focused massage that incorporates myofacial, trigger point, deep tissue and swedish techniques to meet the needs of my clients. I work with a diverse clientele, and have a special interest in athletes of all forms. I work with many endurance athletes during training and can provide mobile massage for athletic events like Half and full Marathons, Triathlons, Cycling, Trail and Adventure Racing, and any event that challenges the human body and spirit. I also have advanced training in pre and post-natal massage.

 

Background:

  I currently practice massage full time. I am an Illinois Licensed Massage Therapist and a member of the ABMP. I grew up in Deerfield, IL and attended Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia and received a BFA in Fibers with a minor in writing. I graduated from Cortiva Institute - Chicago School of Massage Therapy, while there I experienced first hand the impact combining effective bodywork with appropriate self-care has on athletic performance. As a runner, receiving regular care made me feel stronger while using my body, and I recovered from hard workouts quickly. By no means was I a “natural” athlete; I started running in 2000 and lost 90 lbs. I made many lifestyle changes and felt challenged by trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle while balancing the demands of work and being a full time student. At that point, the changes in my body and in my life felt so good I dreamed of finding a job where I could share that with other people. I found my voice and heart in massage.

 

Massage Philosophy:

I am passionate about being active and helping others achieve personal goals. I enjoy working with chronic postural strain issues, but believe the true power of massage is in its diversity of applications and ability to adapt to a wide range of needs. The most powerful and lasting work is the result of the therapist and client working together. Change is possible and a more fulfilling life is within anyone’s reach. With massage, I seek to honor the individual and aid each on his or her unique path.

Great Massage Therapist!

Leslie Walter is a credit to her industry. As a long time massage client, I have a lot to compare her to. Leslie takes an active interest every appointment and makes sure to understand what the key issues are for every treatment. As a runner herself she recognizes the needs of other runners and focuses on those areas. My nearly weekly appointment with Leslie is a highlight.... I highly recommend her!

A First-Rate Massage

I have been getting regular massages from Leslie for more than a year now. I consider her to be one of the best massage therapist I know. She is totally professional in her knowledge of bodywork. She listens intently to my physical complaints both before and during the massage, and thoroughly addresses each one. Her energy is soothing, relaxing, and the music she plays during massage is fantastic! Massages from Leslie increase my well-being and improve my health. You should get one!

Excellent Massage Therapist

Leslie is very attentive--she asks for input as she's working on me and uses that information to target problem areas. She gives a great deep tissue massage, knows how to release trigger points, and knows how to do active stretching. I highly recommend her!

Great massage!

I have been receiving massage from Leslie for 2 years and she is absolutely amazing! Not only does she give a great massage, but she comes to my house (sometimes with short notice) and gives me a new experience each time. She can pin-point my problem areas, and leave me feeling like a million bucks! I highly recommend her services and can't wait until I get to see her again!
