"I wanted to take a second and recognize an amazing massage therapist right here in Framingham. Leslie Fraser from Fraser Massage has helped me come back from an sports injury that has truly set me back since August.
Diagnosed with a bulging disk and a herniated disk, the pain got to the unbearable point. I have tried a ton of options including other deep massage therapists but never have I encountered such a person in tune and in love with her job. My muscles are quite relaxed and therefore my nerves are not so pressed on.
The very first time I went to see her, she nailed down my diagnosis among other things from just lying on the table. I have visited many massage therapists in my day but never experienced anything like Leslie. I am for ever in her debt for bringing me back to life and for all those ailing from injuries, she knows exactly how to help you.
In addition, most health insurances don't except a massage as a form of treatment but her cost per visit is far less than anyone I have seen. I HIGHLY recommend Leslie and once you go see her, you will understand why. Good luck..."
Douglas Gordon, Framingham
"I have to second this recommendation for Leslie Fraser for deep tissue/post athletic injury massage. After reading this [Douglas Gordon's recommendation] original post I immediately sent it to my husband. He's had back surgery twice and was still dealing with sciatic pain. He's a runner/triathlete and was planning to compete in an ironman triathlon this summer but in February his nerve pain had returned to the extent that walking was very difficult. For several weeks he tried various traditional and non traditional treatments and medication but nothing seemed to help. He had almost resigned himself to not competing in the ironman. As a "one last effort" he saw Leslie for the first time mid April. He goes about once every week or two. I can happily say that not only can he walk normally again, we are currently driving home from Buffalo NY where he ran the Buffalo marathon in his goal time and is excited to be getting ready for the Ironman. Anyone with injuries, where other treatments aren't working should strongly consider Leslie Fraser. "
Heidi McIndoo, Framingham
"I second that! [Douglas Gordon's recommendation] Leslie is so amazingly talented! I get fairly regular massages and what she offers is entirely and completely superior. I won't go to anyone else now that I've found her!
"thanks for the amazing, intuitive, therapeutic massage! I just slid out of my car like a 20 year old."
Kristen Houlker, Framingham
"Go to this great therapist. She gets deep into the painful areas and is able to provide immediate relief. Great aura and wonderful thoughtful massage practitioner. You won't be disappointed. One of the best and I've been going for 20 years. Just got back and had hurt my back (in yoga with an extreme move) . I am relieved already."
Elise T, Holliston
"Lots of issues with hip, back etc.... Very helpful in sorting out etiology and addressing the causes of the inflexibility. Highly recommended!"
Scott M., Medway
"I have been to many spas and have had many massages. I can tell you that Leslie gives the best deep tissue massages I have ever had. I cannot recommend Leslie enough. I introduced my mother in law to Leslie and she is also a huge fan. She recommends Leslie to all her friends as well. Leslie is by far the best therapist I have been to. And I have been to many. Her deep tissue work is great. And where I am a larger person that is saying a lot. I would recommend Leslie to anyone."
Randy B., Natick
"Having been to a few different massage therapists over the years I can happily and confidently review Leslie as being wonderful at what she does. I had isolated pains in both my front shoulders and recently knee pain. Her care and knowledge to massage the surrounding areas has caused my discomforts to cease."
Alexander D., Hopkinton
"Leslie Fraser just did some AMAZING work on me!!! She is a gifted massage therapist and healer... anyone who has ever thought about energy healing or massage therapy needs to make an appointment with Leslie today."
Shannon McCullough, Framingham, MA
"As a general practitioner, Leslie unlocked, in two short sessions, all the residual back, shoulder, and neck tensions from putting up a sheet-rock ceiling. Then the magic began. I asked if she did hands and wrists since my Rheumatoid Arthritis has stiffened all my fingers and wrists. In two sessions she reduced the "flare" swelling in my fingers and substantially increased the flexibility of fingers and wrists. I only wish I lived closer so I could receive her gifted relief more frequently.
Ed Latimer, Westerly, RI.
“I am fortunate to have found Leslie. I try to stay very active and physically fit, however, inevitably I will overdo it. In the past, it took too much time to stretch, rest and stretch again to get back. Now, with Leslie’s deep tissue/sport massage, I am able to work out the stress-points before they can sideline me. Her flexible hours and central location are very convenient, too. I highly recommend Leslie. She is a true professional with a great personality.”
Rich Joseph, South Natick
"My shoulders feel better than they have in years!"
Wendy Habeski, Framingham
"I have been seeing Leslie faithfully for over a year
now and I can honestly say she has changed my life. I work in the
fitness industry so I am working out all the time and I get tight - to
say the least. In addition I am also prone to neck and lower back pain.
This is where Leslie comes in. She is a miracle worker. She is so
dedicated to her craft and my body reaps the benefits. She is meticulous
and precise and she does not give up easily, even on my stubborn back.
My new "go to gift" is gift certificates to see her because I want all
my friends and family to experience what I experience monthly. Leslie is
the best massage therapist and she could not come more highly
recommended. Do yourself a favor and spend and hour with her, it will
change your life."
Nichole Fabiano Ryan, Holliston
"Leslie is a fabulous intuitive body worker! I highly recommend her!"
Eve Costarelli, Natick
had been searching for a massage therapist who was proficient in
Myofascial Release techniques. I found Leslie, who is a magician with
her hands! Her massage work with me has resulted in measurable
improvements in my ability to stretch, remain flexible and pain free in
my neck, back and shoulders. At each session she will focus completely
on what areas need attention and will always make the best use of our
time. Her massages are not cookie cutter, and they are not fluff. They
are truly therapeutic. If you are looking for massage that really is
beneficial, and makes a difference for you, then Leslie is your
Gail Pearlstein, Natick
found Leslie to be a wonderful and conscientious individual. She has a
wonderful sense of humor and is very committed to her work as a massage
therapist. I feel that she displays the kind of dedication, caring and
professionalism we tried to encourage at MITM. I believe Leslie would
make a wonderful contribution to any growing massage practice."
Dr. Steve Markus, Professor, MITM
doctor recommended I have massage therapy for some old athletic
injuries. I visited 3 different "massage therapists", but none of them
did the deep massage that I needed to loosen up old problem areas.
Finally, a friend recommended Leslie and I thought I'd try one last
time. After only a few treatments, my muscles have loosened
significantly and much of the old pains are gone. I feel like I'm
standing taller as well. Leslie is a pro!"
John Harmon, Southborough
takes the necessary time up front, asking questions to determine where
to focus and apply her techniques...she doesn't simply go through the
motions, she is focused and in tune with my body, and adjusts her
technique accordingly, to achieve the best results. Those are the core
professional qualities which I have found set Leslie Idzal miles apart
from many other massage therapists...Leslie is of the highest caliber
professional massage therapists...an all star; simply book a massage
session with Leslie and see for yourself, you won't be disappointed."
J. Sarnie, Framingham
have chronic neck and upper back pain and Leslie is always able to help
loosen my muscles up so I left feeling great! She's a natural at
massage and has the ability to make a person feel at ease immediately on
the table...I would recommend to anyone I know to get a massage from
E. Campbell, Marlborough
massage has been wonderful with increasing benefits, but today's massage
was more than that! It felt like today reflected so much progress -
more than that, it also illustrated to me that your ability to make me
comfortable is as important as your expertise! I feel better than I have
for quite awhile."
Lesley Ormonde, Wayland
has a wonderful technique with a strong bent towards athletic and deep
tissue massage which will serve her well in the fitness arena."
Anita Luck, Natick
can wholeheartedly recommend Leslie for therapeutic massage. After
years of Leslie encouraging me to go and see her, I finally did this
morning, and the only regret I have is that I did not go to see her
sooner. I desperately needed some deep tissue massage for ongoing issues
with my shoulder, neck, back and hip. She expertly worked on many of my
very tight muscles. If you have seen a massage therapist in the area,
you know that Leslie's fee is really great. I must say that for the work
she did on me this morning, it was worth every penny - and more! I plan
to go back to see her in a couple of weeks as a follow-up for the
tissue work she did today. "
K. Russo, Framingham
is an extremely competent massage therapist. I have practiced massage
for the past 8 years and found her work to be more effective than others
who have been in the field for years. I would highly recommend Leslie
personally and professionally."
