About Richard Leversee

I am a Board Certified Massage and Myoskeletal Therapist, Bodyworker and Reiki Master. My integrated practice offers you Profound Relaxation and a blended collection of therapeutic bodywork modalities ranging from Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Orthopedic and Injury Rehabilitation to Chronic Pain Relief - through Trigger Point, Myofascial and Neuromuscular Release.

All sessions are provided on a BioMat® Crystal Therapy Pad and are interlaced with Hot Stones, Aromatherapy, Divine Energy Work and much more.  Every session is unique and customized for you integrating Deep Full Engagement with Reverent Gentleness.

My intention is to facilitate the healing work that you are seeking whether it is lasting release of stress, pain and tension held in your body or going deep within and enhancing energy flow and awareness throughout your entire being – body, mind and spirit.

This is more than a massage.  This is Transformational Massage and Spirit-Centered Bodywork with the result being your Radiant Holistic Health and Deep Well Being. 

In your initial appointment, plenty of time is provided for a thorough intake process, allowing you and me the opportunity to best understand your particular needs. You are encouraged to be self-empowered in your own treatment in each session. I believe that you are actually working on yourself through me. The results from this approach are potentially unlimited.

My Story

I chose massage therapy and the healing arts as a career path after sustaining  injuries from a life-changing para-glider crash in 1987. I spent two weeks in the hospital and had subsequent overwhelming chronic pain for many years. I wanted to transform my physical pain, disposition and create more meaningful fulfillment in contributions to others and to the world. Marriage to my best friend and the path of physical body healing have since led to healing my entire being holistically – body, mind and spirit.

One of the most precious things in life is adventure – exciting, risky and with uncertain outcome. I spent 25 years climbing and skiing – feeding my soul with these experiences. Now, living life fully with a heart wide open is the supreme adventure. I am fascinated with the quest of lovingly serving people and the highest good of the world. Adventure used to be about ‘doing’ outside. Now it is about ‘being’ which is an inside job.

Involvement in the healing arts has been an incredible adventure into real-life magical realms. I have become more fully aware of the sacred miracle of our true nature and learned that in giving, we truly receive. This is my life’s work and I love it!

Credentials

I first began my massage training in 1991 and have been in full time private practice since 2003.  Many years of experience have resulted in veteran expertise and a large comprehensive toolbox containing a broad array of healing modalities and offerings. I have developed a unique signature style characterized by deep intuitive wisdom and a seasoned skillful touch. This journey has culminated in over 1800 hours of training in my field with regular on-going continuing education and by far the most valuable experience is with my clients in over 10,000 massages.
