Leslie Jafarace, M.S.O.M., has long been involved in helping people return and restore balance and wholesomeness to their lives. After several years of instructing yoga, she took the first steps towards embracing holistic medicine as a career when, in 1997, she became a Licensed Massage Therapist for the state of South Carolina, which she remains to this day. Seeking to further her depth of knowledge in and passion for the healing arts, she moved to Austin, Texas in 1999, and began attending school at the internationally recognized Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA).
While at AOMA, Leslie studied in such diverse fields as Oriental Herbal Medicines, Herbal Nutrition, Internal Martial Arts, and Oriental Body Work, among others. Four years and much hard work after beginning her studies, Leslie graduated from AOMA in 2003 with a Masters Degree in the Science of Oriental Medicine.
After graduation, Leslie decided to take her knowledge out into the world, so to speak. Over the following several years, her work took her to many interesting places. For example, she has practiced her art in England, at the elite Elemis Spa in London. She also spent a couple of years working aboard various cruise ships, combining her love of her work with her love of travel. Leslie returned to the Grand Strand area in the spring of 2008, and has been glad to have the opportunity to once again practice here at home, in the Carolina Lowcountry where she grew up.
Leslie has a particular interest and passion for using her talent and knowledge in addressing womens health. She feels that many of the common problems faced by women today can be beneficially addressed by the time-honored methods of Oriental Medicine that she has spent so much time studying and practicing. From the issues involved in the changes a womans body undergoes during the processes of childbirth, to those experienced by older women in their golden years, and in all of the years between, Leslie feels that she has the empathy, knowledge, and understanding to help her clients live the happiest and most fulfilled life possible.
