Our Staff Makes the Body Essence Difference!



















Georgette M Leng
Registered Massage Therapist

Georgette hails originally from the Denfield area. She spent her early years, enjoying the farm life. Always eager to help others, it was not surprising she decided to explore a career that would enable her to do so. Through her co-op program in high school, Georgette was able to sample the life of a massage therapist. Georgette went on to graduate from The D'Arcy Lane Institute of Massage Therapy and has been a registered massage therapist since July, 2005. Her career at Body Essence began shortly thereafter.

Georgette thrives on the knowledge that she can aid in the reduction of tension her clients’ are taxed with, from day to day, wear and tear, on their bodies. She uses Swedish massage as a therapeutic means to promote relaxation and pain relief. She is confident that massage therapy is an effective alternative treatment, which is most beneficial to those who suffer conditions, such as; tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle aches and strains and tendonitis. In the spring of 2006, Georgette became a certified foot reflexologist through the Ontario College of Reflexology. She uses reflexology to promote an overall sense of well being by enhancing reflexes located in the foot. These reflexes correspond to certain areas of the body and encourage the body to self heal.

Georgette will not only give you the best massage you have ever had, she will personalize your treatment. If you need specific stretches or exercises that will extend the benefits of your massage, she will share these with you. If she feels you would benefit from other treatments, she will not hesitate to refer you. She is an integral part of our team at Body Essence, and she truly has your best interests at heart!
