Trisha Brown-Leweke is the sole owner, operator and therapist at Mother Bear Traditional Healing Arts. She was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., the 5th child of Jamaican immigrants. Trisha graduated college and worked in the field of social work for many years. At the age of 30, Trisha traded the busyness of Bronx, N.Y. for the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley. After moving, she experienced different kinds of work including jobs as a photographer, a mom and an office manager. After receiving a healing pre-natal massage, she decided to become a massage therapist. In 2006, with a financial gift from her parents, Trisha attended the Shenandoah Valley School of Therapeutic Massage (Edinburgh, VA), and has since served the Harrisonburg community by bringing wellness in the form of bodywork. In 2012, she began studying Traditional Healing Arts and Stone Medicine with Medicine Women Sandra Hoak, owner of Cedar Stone School of Massage and Cedar Stone Spa.

"The study of Stone Medicine has changed my life and my bodywork practices.  I'm inviting you to Mother Bear Traditional Healing Arts to experience the amazing healing that spending time with The Stones will bring." ~ Trisha

"Trisha is a master of massage, lifestyle and mindfulness. Just talking to her you will find a calmness that is absolutely contagious. Wonderful woman with an uncommon gift of relaxation and serenity." A.C., Virginia

"Trisha is an amazing energy worker. I felt like I was on my last nerve and came in to her spa a wreck. With her calm, professional, assuring presence I immediately relaxed. Not only was I able to leave feeling grounded and peaceful, I also came away with knowledge about myself that I can use. Thank you, Trisha!" E.N., Virginia

"The new location for Mother Bear is a spacious, relaxing place to visit Trisha. Even though I've moved out of town, I still return to get bodywork from her!" J.S., Washington D.C.
