Her goal is to address clients concerns through therapy and education so that they can find relief from acute and chronic conditions.

After having her first child, Leila decided to pursue a career in education and has worked for the past 10 years as an elementary teacher in Peel Region. Once her second child was born, she made the difficult decision to retire as a Massage Therapist so she could focus on her family and her new career. Over the past year, she realized that she missed the Massage Therapy profession and decided to become re-certified. Leila is happy to have the opportunity to build her new practice and to help her clients achieve their desired outcomes.
