Dorina Leslie, LMT
Dorina Leslie is a talented massage therapist and holistic healer. Following a true spiritual calling, Dorina is a 2013 graduate of the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy. She has extensive experience working in a functional medicine office, several spas, and has had her own private practice since 2018, which is her favorite. Known for her customized 90-minute sessions, Dorina loves connecting with those who find their way to her for healing. Now, the times they are a changing, and with that has come the addition of some amazing new go-to modalities:
As she has evolved in her holistic healing practice, Dorina has added several modalities, which set her apart from other therapists: Bemer therapy, Laura Norman Holistic Reflexology, and the Alexander Method of Vibrational Body Therapy & Sound Healing. Expanding her practice beyond bodywork, Dorina has found her Home, and is honored to be offering sound baths, with a layered combination of sacred crystal singing bowls, Koshi chimes, and other sound therapy tools. Sound healing has truly been a way to bring healing to those, for whatever reason, prefer not to get undressed, or who just love energy healing. The Solfeggio Frequencies help raise one's vibration and can transport you to an amazingly blissful state, in a short healing session. To book a healing service, click here.

The Katie Augustyn Spiritual Connection Show with Dorina Leslie
"On 11.11.11, which is considered an energetic and spiritual portal, Dorina Leslie had a Spiritual Awakening that changed the trajectory of her life. As she puts it, she was "one of the most unawakened people on the planet" prior to that. Dorina found her calling and her gift as a Healer. She is now a massage therapist, alternative healer, and wellness coach. Learn all about her journey, and how Dorina mentors parents whose teen daughters struggle with mental health issues and helps folks in recovery. In her other healing work, Dorina offers The Alexander Method of Sound & Vibrational Energy Therapy, as well as BEMER vascular therapy, at local treatment centers, yoga studios, 1:1, or wherever she is called. I am so inspired by Dorina - who she is and what she brings into the world!"
