Hello! My name is Ann LeFevre, and I’m the creator and owner of Restore Body and Soul. I launched Restore Body and Soul in 2017 with the goal of meeting the therapeutic needs of the whole person using research-backed Western and time-tested Eastern techniques. My first book, Live Your Life: 14 Days to the Best You, will be released in January 2018.
I’ve been a social worker for nearly 20 years, and I have my bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in social work. I’ve been a practicing psychotherapist since 2002. I also became a massage therapist in 2016, and a certified acupressurist in 2017. Why social work and massage therapy, you may be wondering…
Over the years, I noticed that even though my psychotherapy clients reported feeling better as the result of addressing unresolved or longstanding issues, when I looked at them physically, they were still tense, had poor posture and chronic health problems, and they still weren’t sleeping very well.
I recommended that my clients receive therapeutic massage, attend mindfulness and other wellness classes, and seek out holistic treatments, but they rarely did. It took a great amount of time and effort to find a reputable massage therapist who understood their concerns, and classes and holistic treatments that fit their specific needs at the right time.
I started thinking…what if I could eliminate those barriers and provide a broad range of services in one location with the same provider… and Restore Body and Soul was born.
If you prefer to simply schedule a massage, that is totally fine! If you are interested only in psychotherapy or just want to attend a class or workshop, that is always okay. If you are interested in creating a holistic package of services, please let me know! A sample package for someone struggling with insomnia could include an intake session, 5 sessions of Cognitive Based Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), 3 sessions of massage therapy that include relaxation and acupressure techniques, an acupressure for insomnia class, and a product that enhances sleep.
Please feel free to Contact Me with any questions or concerns, or to request a brief phone call to see if I’m a good fit for your treatment needs.
