Leoni De Sa'e Silva

Massage Therapist and Pilates Instructor

Leoni joined our Peak team in 2016 after moving to New Zealand from Brazil.  Having worked in the health and fitness industry since 2008 Leoni was keen to continue working in this field.   Coming from a physiotherapy background Leoni is passionate about improving and maintaining healthy muscles.  At Peak Pilates and Physiotherapy Merton Road, Leoni can help you overcome everyday muscular tension or assist in the prevention and quicker healing of sports injuries through massage.
Passionate about physical exercise, Leoni researched more about the Pilates methodology and decided to use it as a rehabilitation tool, combining the benefits of Pilates with physiotherapy.  
Having knowledge and experience in biomechanics and disc injuries, Leoni was impressed by the fast and positive results in enhancing spinal stability acquired through Pilates. Leoni now uses a Pilates focus when teaching classes and personalised conditionings for clients, due to the positive results experienced.
Leoni works full time at the Merton Road studio and is available for massage and individual conditioning sessions. 
When she is not working Leoni enjoys travelling, hiking, dancing and singing.
