We contacted Leonid after he was recommended by a friend. Our non verbal autistic-seven years old son was very anxious and suffered from insomnia.
Leonid agreed to travel to our home in Surrey for an initial consultation. The service that was provided meant that we received an informal training, where both our son could relax and we could have a full one to one training within the comfort of our home.
He met our son and gave us basic massage techniques followed with a detailed follow up visit with a full detailed written instructions and step by step video clips.
We have been carrying out the therapy for three months now and it is part of my sons bed time routine.
Since we have started the massage therapy, our son has made noticeable improvements in his speech. Of his own volition, he is vocalising more and is more likely to use words to share experiences. Although the use of words had been small, it has nevertheless occurred. We do not know for sure if this had been due to massage therapy but it seems to have happened at the same time. He is now sleeping throughout the night.
We look forward to continuing and seeing him develop.
