Meet Alesha
Hello! My name is Alesha. I’m a mother to 4 kids ranging in ages from 8-2 years old. After earning a Degree in Massage in 2012 from Cuyahoga Community College,prenatal massage I knew that I wanted to focus on prenatal/postpartum massage. I soon completed additional training from Nurturing the Mother, certifying in Prenatal/Postpartum Massage.  I was a mom to 1 little boy at the time, but I knew that pregnancy was my passion. I love seeing the changes in clients from when they walk in, to when they walk out. to voice what they need and does her best to provide a comforting, calm and purpose-focused, tailored session of massage.
As a member of the Nurtured Foundation team (and previous client!), Sarah is committed to giving Mothers support through massage therapy. With life-long passion for the fields of Social Work and Guidance Counseling, a not-so-secret wish to be an Office Manager when she retires and a deep love for self-care and wellness ~ this LMT is on board to keep Cleveland’s east side mothers relaxed, lifted and renewed!
