Taking Care Wellness

pain management


Taking Care Wellness is a Portland, Maine area therapeutic massage practice that is now closed.  While Leslie Girmscheid, MD, LMT suspended her practice a few times in the past year due to repetitive injuries, she started a new business to help people de-stress their lives by helping them get their homes and offices organized.  Check out www.SanctuaryHomeOrganizing.com to find out more.  Shouldn’t you have an ordered and tranquil space to work in and come home to?  She is also pursuing further training as a health and wellness coach and will be revising the site to reflect changes in services that will be offered.



Taking Care Wellness is a Portland area therapeutic massage practice originally started by Leslie Girmscheid, MD, LMT, NCTMB in Needham, Massachusetts in 2001.  In 2008 she moved to the Portland, Maine metropolitan area where she continues to practice relaxation and orthopedic massage in Scarborough.

In addition to addressing problems of painful muscles and joints, she continues in her role of patient educator, discussing nutritional and medical issues with her clients who are interested.  Each month she sends out an electronic newsletter with a wellness topic.


Wellness and Pain Management

Wellness is about feeling good about yourself and being comfortable in your body.  Regular massage contributes to good health and can be a very effective tool for pain management.  Leslie can help you deal with painful musculoskeletal areas as well as guide you in making food choices and improving your activity level.
