"Heal your body, Clear your mind, Invigorate your soul"
We provide effective solutions in the treatment of physical ailments such as:
- Sporting injuries
- Neck and back pain
- RSI and carpal tunnel
- Deep tissue
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Corporate Massage / Mobile Massage
- Although a single massage will be enjoyable, the effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits
- Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, and so help to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension and any resulting structural weaknesses
- Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system-depending upon what is required by the individual-and thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the reciever with a feeling of replenished energy
- At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually
- Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body
- Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues (the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone.Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves
- Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body
- Eases tension, stiffness, and pain
- Improves breathing
- Improves circulation
- Enhances wellness

"I would like to recommend Leo Leon. He is amazing - I call him my miraracle worker. I had bi lateral knee replacement 3 years ago and got to the stage where I was not improving any more, I was getting very frustrated and jammy in my joints. Leo has increased my mobility amazingly and I am now able to attend the gym 3x a week and so I am getting much fitter as well. He worked my muscles and released spasms and cramping to make it all possible. The benefits are also that I can now squat lower, get up independently from a lower chair and walking is much more comefortable. Thank you Leo for turning my life around,"

"Over many years My husband and I have experienced countless, awesome healing and revitalising massages from Leo Leon from Shakti Body and Sole Healing Centre in The Centre, Forestville.
When we sustain a muscular injury or just feel totally stressed out, we head straight to Leo before consulting any other method of resolving our issue.
In fact when our family members come to stay with us from overseas they book a session with Leo. They have come to realise that having a massage adds to the enjoyment of their holiday and he is good value for money.
We have no hesitation in recommending Leo, those who experience his professionalism, expertise and kind nature will always come back for another massage."

"I was very stressed ,over-tired and physically debilitated, so began looking for some way to release the increasing tension my body was feeling.
Having a background knowledge in natural therapies and preferring this way of healing I decided to have to go at reflexology.That was three years ago and I am grateful foot having chosen this form of relaxation and healing .My feet appreciate the aromatic foot bath and the massage that follows. Not only that : my body feels rejuvenated, my energy levels raised and my ability to manage ,so much easier.
Thank goodness my feet led me to shakti Body & Sole Healing Centre ,where leo leon provides a warm and inviting environment. Along with Leo’s gentle and calming nature, I relish my time, while my feet, body, mind and soul become more in-tune and I am able to manage my demanding life.
Thank you leo"

"As a result of reflexology treatment every two weeks I feel my energy level has increased!"
"I have been receiving treatments from Leo for approximately 4 months now. The difference to my life was almost immediate. I have suffered from pain in my shoulders for many years and have found conventional therapies only gave relief for a matter of hours after treatment, which usually required two treatments per week. I see Leo once a week (maximum) and find that I rarely have much pain, if any, from week to week.
Long term I have found receiving regular treatments from Leo has improved my overall well-being. My body movements generally were deteriorating with age but I now enjoy a level of mobility that I had when I was a decade younger.
I have no hesitation in recommending Leo’s treatments to my family and friends. My 76 year old mother has recently had a reflexology treatment and said she felt ‘revitalised’ afterwards and felt like she ‘could go dancing’.
In conclusion when asked to write this testimonial for Leo’s new website I was delighted as I was going to be able to share my enthusiasm or Leo’s healing skills with others who will no doubt benefit as much from his treatments and I have."
