As a massage therapist, my first concern is your comfort. I hope to create a space that puts you at ease. Where you can allow yourself to receive the benefits of the bodywork.
The massage therapy I offer is an intuitive integrative balance of multiple elements I have learned over 21 years. As I begin your session, I am guided by your body and spirit, allowing me to access a deeper sense of what is necessary to bring about the best outcome at that time.
The physical pressure will be fashioned to your comfort and to what you are hoping to achieve.
I feel that it is not so much about training received, but the experience and heart-centered care that I bring to your massage therapy experience.
Cassandra brings 18 years of dedication, curiosity and knowledge to every exceptional, personal massage therapy session. Her love of learning has led her to explore many massage modalities. Cassandra most recently received her 100 HR Certification in Esalen massage, which will continue to be the core of her practice.
With Esalen massage, the receiver can expect unhurried, long, flowing strokes from head to toe and back again. The full pressure of the therapist's hands or forearms deepen as the body begins to decompress and the mind becomes quiet. Focused work is done using various techniques from modalities such as craniosacral, deep tissue, shiatsu and reiki. Esalen's slow movements can help the receiver to recognize any habitual patterns being held in the body or mind and invites deeper softening and relaxation creating a fuller sense of well being.
Leanne graduated from Center for Massage and Natural Health in 2022 and is a licensed massage therapist in North Carolina. She recently completed her 100-hour Esalen certification, which she considers the foundation of her practice. Leanne is an integrative massage therapist, drawing from a variety of modalities to suit each person, and their specific needs. And also, being a doula, she especially enjoys working with pregnant and newly postpartum women.
Leanne believes in meeting each body where it is, approaching each session with presence, mindfulness, curiosity and compassion. She uses Esalen’s signature long flowing strokes over the whole body to create a sense of wholeness, connection and integration, passive joint movement, as well as compressions, gentle rocking and stretching, deep sculpting of the musculature, and stillness.
She considers her massage to be a creative collaboration between partners to reach a deep relaxation and balance of the nervous system. It is a welcoming of the body, and a meeting of where you are.
Leanne has been a DONA trained birth doula since 2014, and also offers postpartum doula support, providing women continuity of care and support throughout their pregnancy, labor and into the first tender weeks postpartum. She believes a well nurtured and supported woman makes a confident and strong mother, who is more able to trust and listen to her own intuition. As a mother of three daughters, Leanne believes women supporting women is the foundation to a better world.
Leanne completed her training in herbalism with a course by Rosemary Gladstar in 2017 and loves to grow her own herbs and create medicine and magick to support the health of her family.
Born and raised in Alaska, Leanne loves the mountains and is so thankful to call Western North Carolina home. In her spare time, you’ll find her hiking with her family, gardening, dancing, cooking, wrangling children and chickens, living as close to the earth as possible, and enjoying building her forever home on ten wooded acres in Tryon

Massage is transformational. I feel a deep spiritual connection to the body as a sacred vessel. It holds all of our experiences: the blessings and successes as well as our ongoing stresses, pain, disappointments, and traumas. Gentle healing touch can soften and move those things that have lodged in our bodies.
