About Leslie Daley MFA RYT500 MS OTR/L
When she discovered Myofascial Release (MFR), 17 years ago, Leslie saw her old injuries and chronic pain profoundly improve. She felt called to offer this work to others and went back to school to earn her Master of Science degree in occupational therapy from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. Leslie has pursued extensive training in the John F Barnes Myofascial Release method as well as a myriad of pelvic floor trainings.
Leslie uses her experience as a life-long practitioner and yoga teacher with well over 500 hours of training to teach you self-care techniques that will help you maintain the effects of therapy and keep you on the path to an improved quality of life.
My experience with Leslie has been nothing short of amazing. I started dealing with intermittent hip/ankle pain for the last 7/8 years that had recently become more chronic. I tried numerous approaches for relief (PT, acupuncture, etc.) and was recommended MFR by a family member. I felt significant relief after the first 2/3 appointments, and am at a point where 80-100% of relief is achievable if I stay consistent with recommended maintenance and check-ins. Leslie in deeply knowledgeable, encouraging, and listens with an open and helpful mind. I highly recommend her and trying MFR if other approaches to pain relief have fallen short of expectations.
“Working with Leslie was profound on many levels. Her knowledge of the physical, integrating the spiritual and emotional was truly impressive. Furthermore, her down-to- earth, grounded, and practical suggestions
were very helpful and healing. I highly recommend working with her!’’

“Leslie’s MFR sessions have restored a feeling of balance and strength, and I am grateful. During an MFR session, it feels like Leslie is deeply listening to my body. I am beginning to understand how just a few minutes of my own attention and practice can give similar results. It is a liberating, reassuring and encourages me to participate in my own healing. The MFR exercises and yoga Leslie teaches are my tools to restore strength and balance on my own. Leslie is fun, resourceful and a wonderfully skilled practitioner!’’
With a diverse background in health, wellness and healing, Leslie has worked with both adults and children in a variety of settings including yoga studios, corporate offices, community programs, wellness programs, schools, hospitals, and home-based therapy.
