For Shiatsu in London, you’ve found The Shiatsu Guy!
Simon Henderson is a fully trained Shiatsu massage therapist with extensive knowledge and expertise and lots of happy clients. Simon specialises in releasing muscle pain and tension in your Neck, Shoulders and Back through a carefully honed understanding of the human body, meridian and pressure point system and the correct application of pressure to relieve your pain and tension.
Shiatsu is effective in reducing the effects of jetlag, panic attacks and anxiety, improving sleep issues, managing stress and tension, as well as releasing and relieving pain throughout the body.
Shiatsu is popular with Office workers suffering from tight necks, backs and shoulders, and used by dancers and sportspeople to optimise performance, maintain their muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments as well as reducing the chance of injury and managing existing injuries.
Shiatsu is very adaptable and allows Simon to offer a wide range of treatments from therapies that reduce the effects of stress, alleviate aches and pains and to programs that deal with obtaining peak physical performance and in recovering from illness or injury.
Due to the nature of the healing process it is recommended that new clients commit to at least 3 sessions in order to realise more long-term benefits from their treatments. You will certainly feel better after a single session, but if the condition is long-term then it will return once the effects of the treatment wear off or the stresses and strains of your day to day life once again take dominance.
The Benefits of Receiving Shiatsu in London – Why Choose The Shiatsu Guy?
Simon has spent many years training in Shiatsu and a number of other therapies, starting his studies at the London College of Shiatsu in 1999. He then went on to work extensively in the Corporate field delivering hundreds if not thousands of hours of acupressure chair massage sessions in short, highly effective treatments that were aimed at helping people as quickly as possible. Through this ‘trial by fire’ Simon has developed the ability to release knots in the back, neck and shoulders through a specific sequence of applied pressure, use of pressure points and the Hirata Zones.
Simon believes in providing a bespoke Shiatsu therapy treatment, drawing on other healing modalities as required to get you to your optimism level of health and Wellbeing. He ensures all treatments are tailored to suit your unique requirements, targeting specific problem areas and providing the relief, relaxation and support you need.

I feel totally de stressed and relaxed Simon gives a fantastic massage, I have had a number of massages with him and I would highly recommend them! He will find knots you didn’t even know were there, After every massage I feel totally de stressed and relaxed, Well worth the money 🙂
Simon was able to treat me from my office The Shiatsu massage I received from Simon managed to release a lot of my tension during a stressful few weeks I had been experiencing. His approach and detailed explanation of the treatment he would give me was very much appreciated and interesting, as I knew little about this type of massage beforehand. Working on a computer all day, I tend to fall into bad habits. After the massage I was sitting up tall and felt revived, I would recommend anyone who has not had a Shiatsu massage before to experience it. Even better Simon was able to treat me from my office, which saved me valuable time, it would have taken me weeks to actually make an appointment myself, so I would say to anyone go on and give it a try.
I can’t wait to go back for more I felt really peaceful and relaxed after my first Shiatsu with Simon. He is a very calming person and he made me feel at ease immediately. The whole experience was both enjoyable in the short-term and beneficial in the long-term. I can’t wait to go back for more.

Shiatsu provided real relief that was long lasting I went to see Simon with a long running shoulder issue. Simon’s Shiatsu was able to provide real relief that was long lasting. To top it off the sessions were very relaxing and gave me an energy boost.
