Find Customized Therapeutic and Spa Treatments at Rochester Holistic Arts

By Marina Jokic

If you are seeking a tranquil place that is free of noise and distractions, Rochester Holistic Arts should be on your list. At RHA, therapists practice professional bodywork coupled with deep technical knowledge and years of multidisciplinary experience.

The bodywork at RHA is especially tailored to the client's physical and therapeutic needs, and targeting such conditions as carpal tunnel, chronic neck and back pain, and plantar fasciitis among others. Owner and massage therapist Nic Leshley is determined to bring relief to all of his clients, especially those suffering from chronic disorders.

"If you have been living with an ailment for some time and are carrying around a container and schedule of pharmaceutical medications, it's a fact that you are not getting better," Leshley said. "It is also a fact that the root cause of your illness has not been addressed."

Walking into the reception area, you encounter a spacious and tranquil décor complete with plants, soft candlelight, and the wafting aroma of essential oils. Using the choicest of ingredients and products, the RHA therapists are also highly trained in their respective specialty area.

Whether you are interested in a spa treatment or more of a therapeutic session, you can find the right healer at RHA. With over 11 distinct massage therapies including Arvigo technique, deep tissue, hot stone, and Thai Yoga and five healing therapies such as reflexology and Reiki, there is no shortage of remedies to try.

"Our bodies are healing machines," Leshley said. "We are created with such perfection that as soon as we [fall] out of balance, our body, with its amazing immune system, goes about its job of removing the offending virus, bacteria or inflammation."

RHA's mission is to make every treatment as personalized as possible, addressing the nitty-gritty of a client's physical concerns. Leshley is rigorous in choosing his team, carefully vetting the professional qualifications and the therapist's ability to interact productively with his or her patients.

The measure of a successful therapy session includes reduced muscle tension, better mobility, improved circulation, and a noticeable decrease in stress levels. Promoting physical and mental homeostasis is the ultimate goal of a good massage according to Leshley.

"The holistic approach is based on the knowledge that our bodies are capable of keeping us healthy," he said. "Treating our body, mind and spirit as a whole unit [is at the core of all of RHA's therapies]."
