The Mind Body Wellness Center was created for teaching our clients the importance of being proactive in their own health care. Each person is different and thus, at different stages in their knowledge of how to achieve optimum health. Mind Body Wellness offers health coaching principles, coupled with workshops and therapeutic programs that increase our client’s health awareness and puts them on their path to total wellness.
The owner, Leslie Dziatkowicz, practiced as a licensed massage therapist for over 20 years. She attended the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in Albuquerque, New Mexico and graduated as a Natural Therapeutic Specialist. Her unique understanding of massage and bodywork has led to a successful career helping her clients have a better understanding of how their body is designed and why things work the way they work. A treatment session with Leslie is far more than just massage. By using principles of anatomy and physiology, she explains why the body is experiencing pain and explores many options, depending on her clients’ needs, abilities and interests, on how exercise and basic nutrition, as well as mind body techniques, like meditation, can aid in a decrease of that pain.
She graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Recreation Administration from Sacramento State University, California. Here she learned principles of assessment and evaluation, from an allied health professional’s standpoint, to increase effectiveness in various recreation programs, groups and workshops that improve the participant’s quality of life. Her work at the Naval Medical Center San Diego, Inpatient Mental Health, led to more available programming in relaxation techniques for active duty soldiers.
Leslie became a Certified Health Coach through the National Society of Health Coaches so she could empower her clients to shift their health behavior and learn how to make positive lifestyle choices. Her programs takes a behavioral approach to health and by using principles of Motivational Interviewing, helps her clients understand what’s unique to them and leverages that into reaching their health goals.
Leslie enjoys running, hiking, traveling and cooking and currently lives in southeast Ohio.
