Quality Life Massage provides safe and relaxing care to the community
Leslie Forrester is the owner of Quality Life Massage Therapy and a resident of Riverview. She is a Registered Massage Therapist who specializes in a blend of therapeutic massage therapy that is comfortable to receive and tailored to the needs of each client on a daily basis.
âEven when I was in school, I knew that the quality of life and the quality of the experience was the most important concept to me,â said Forrester. âIf my clientele were as comfortable and relaxed as possible while receiving effective but not painful therapy, I would try to achieve this with luxury linens, personalized sessions with a variety of techniques and incredibly comfortable padding and cushions. which make it easy to lie on your stomach. If lying flat is painful in the lower back, that’s okay; at the push of a button, I can change the angle and height of the table. My own quality of life has really been improved by working for myself.
Forrester is trained in Swedish Therapy, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular / Trigger Point Therapy, ACE Massage Cupping and MediCupping Vacuum Therapies, Myofascial Release, Pregnancy Massage, Bamboo Fusion, three-release therapy and much more.
âI started out by renting space at the back of a barbershop in Brandon, but after a few years of being closed I moved to the heart of Riverview and expanded, renting rooms to others. therapists and improving their quality of life as well, âsaid Forrester. âThen COVID came along, and I shut down not only for the state-mandated six to eight weeks in March and April 2020, but for 15 months, until vaccines became widely available.â
Once again, quality of life became the focus and she wanted to make sure that her practice would not be a vector of infection.
âIn May 2021, I resumed practicing massage therapy, this time taking up space one block from my old location inside The Ancient Wisdom of Yoga on Gibsonton Dr. in Riverview,â said said Forrester. âIt’s lovely and serene there, and it’s been a very positive change, but I remain focused on the comfort and safety of my clients and my family. I see clients who are fully vaccinated or who have tested the same day and are fully vaccinated. I have a weekly test protocol and use KF94 masks and a HEPA ventilation unit is working in the treatment room, yoga studio and lobby. I post the results of my weekly tests on my business Facebook page and keep my personal social bubble very narrow and limited.
