We do things a little different around here. Our massage therapists function as a team and we are committed to always go above and beyond for our clients. When you choose to visit BCMT, you receive access to a team of skilled massage therapists with a singular goal....
to help YOU on your wellness journey.
Each of us has a unique massage style and we utilize different therapeutic techniques. You may find that you prefer to stay with one therapist or rotate between us as needed but the focus is 100% on you. We provide custom, therapeutic sessions tailored to your specific needs to help you find balance in your body and your daily life. During your initial appointment, we review your medical history to ensure the highest standard of care. Follow-up sessions include a review of your history and a discussion of new issues or concerns since your last session. Please let us know if anything needs to be adjusted for you during your session (massage pressure, table temperature, room temperature, music selection or volume, etc.).
We use organic/vegan massage products by Sacred Earth, raw organic shea butters, organic coconut and jojoba oil and Professional Biotone products.

Leigh is deeply passionate about one on one therapeutic care. Though she is hesitant to call herself a “healer”, from the second you meet her, you feel the profound sense of calm, supportive energy she brings to every treatment session. A 2014 graduate of The Center for Massage and Natural Health in Asheville, NC, she began her massage career in Savannah, GA and later moved to Washington, DC. It was here where she fell in love with The Trager Approach (mindful movement education) and obtained certification as a practitioner in 2019. Before becoming a Massage Therapist, she worked for seven years as a Direct Care Provider for people with developmental disabilities. In 2021, her deep-rooted compassion for others brought her to Brooklyn, NY to work as a Professional Cuddler and provide support to touch deprived individuals through the pandemic.
Leigh loves educating her clients in movement based self-care, empowering them to find their own body’s “rhythm”. “When we take the time to listen to our bodies, through movement, we can move out of dis-ease and into joy and freedom.”
