Leila Shaw

Leila holds a BA from Dalhousie University, a diploma from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy (registered with MTANS), and in 2016 graduated with a BSc in Applied Human Nutrition from Mount Saint Vincent University and is registered with the Nova Scotia Dietetics Association. She practices as a Massage Therapist and Nutritionist.

Says Leila, Four valuable queries shape our health: what we put into our body (food, and other), what we do with the body (fitness, and other), our quality of sleep, and our state of happiness. Information from these form a framework to guide choices to maintain or re-establish health.  More about Leila Shaw
