Overview

Greetings, Thanks for your interest in a Healing Session. I feel truly grateful to be able to practice as a professional & bodyworker. I've been working & training professionally for over 20 years now. I offer a safe space FREE of judgement, first & foremost I'm a BODYWORKER, so whatever gender, race, color, or "type" you are makes no difference to me at all, Im happy to work with YOU & suit YOUR needs. After 20 plus years in the SF Bay... Area, Im happy to serve everyone, especially supporting the LGBTQ, BIPOC,& Dis-abled communities.

My journey through health has included a bout with CAN-CER, resulting in a surgery, & 2 other life Alter-ing accidents resulting in multiple surgeries, scars, & physical therapies. That's why Im so happy that I'm still able to continue forward with my professional offerings & share my experience with you.

I blend a range modalities including Swedish Deep-Tissue Massage, Reflexology, Polarity Therapy, & Trigger point massage, as well as different elements from light touch Energy Healing Modalities.(Which can include fully clothed sessions) Please note that any first time clients will need to have a brief exploratory phone conversation with me before booking your first session, to ensure that I am able to meet your needs.

Testimonials

Gathered by Jacob from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Sept. 21, 2021 in Berkeley, CA (in-studio)

It is hard to describe this experience in words. From the initial contact to the completion it was a destination spa experience. Leo likes to have a call to discuss your needs and expectations. He is one of the most professional masseurs I have met. When you meet him you have already made a connection. He gives one of the best massages that I have experienced. The touch of his hands are as warm as his heart. You can feel his heart and soul in his touch - he fully understands your body and needs. He is a conversationalist and is so easy to talk with. If you have a chance to have a session with him you will not be disappointed but leaving with your body and mind relaxed and revitalized. -- Chad H.
