The Shiatsu Guy is now in one of the most prestigious London complementary and alternative therapy clinics – Have your tensions released, your stresses soothed, pain relieved and energy boosted in the Hale Clinic
Shiatsu Massage is an extremely grounding, stress-relieving acupressure style massage from Japan. The benefits are so widespread that a long list could be included here… but suffice to say that Shiatsu is perfect for relieving pain and tension around the back, neck and shoulders as well as banishing work-stress and life’s pressures leaving you calm, relaxed and centred yet energised.
Whats more, Shiatsu is traditionally performed on a futon on the floor without any oils, so you can keep your clothes on during the treatment. Just wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely, such as jogging bottoms or yoga pants.
In September 2014 Simon started working with Ruth Freeman in her ‘Cleansing Space’ multi-disciplinary practice at the Hale Clinic.
Simon is giving bespoke Shiatsu massage on Monday afternoons and evenings from 4pm until 8.30pm
Sessions can be 60 or 90 minutes long, depending on how stressed you are and how deeply you want to relax…

Within the Cleansing Space will be a number of other therapies that complement Shiatsu, such as Colonic Hydrotherapy, Reiki, Regression Therapy and Acupuncture
Colonic Hydrotherapy at the Hale Clinic
Ruth Freeman is a talented Colonic Hydrotherapist, reflexologist and massage therapist treating hundreds of clients since she began in 2004. Ruth has a busy Colonic Hydrotherapy practice in Balham where she works several days per week, and has branched out into the Hale Clinic in order to bring her amazing treatments to a wider audience. In May of 2014 Ruth spent 3 weeks at the Hippocrates Institute in Florida, USA where she absorbed a huge amount of new information and lived a super healthy lifestyle in order to integrate these new learnings into her practice, for your benefit!
Who can benefit from Colonic Hydrotherapy at the Hale Clinic?
Colonic hydrotherapy is a way to reduce the toxic load on the colon and therefore the rest of the body, by literally flushing away accumulated waste products and toxins from the rectum and large intestine. This allows the body to use it’s energy elsewhere to heal the body, rather than trying to ineffectively deal with the effects of the toxic build up.
So you will benefit if you are trying to lose weight or detox, as well as if you are suffering from chronic fatigue, low energy, burn out, food intolerances and skin conditions.
Many other conditions are also effectively helped through colonic hydrotherapy. If you’re interested please contact Ruth on 0207 0604 146 and tell her you heard about her from the Shiatsu Guy, you’ll be well looked after!
Reiki and Regression Therapy at the Hale Clinic – on Tuesdays from 4.30 until 8.30pm
While still the youngest member of the multidisciplinary practice, Maria Maraveli has an impressive range of qualifications and experience under her belt. Maria lives her practice with integrity and passion. Maria trained in Reiki, Regression Therapy and Hypnotherapy with a number of masters, overcoming her own serious health issues through self-healing. she had an established clinic in her native Greece and has been working between Athens and London for several years, teaching and treating, before deciding to move herself and her practice to London in 2013.
Who can benefit from Reiki and Regression Therapy at the Hale Clinic?
While Reiki and regression therapy may sound a little more esoteric than the other therapies offered by the Cleansing Space at the Hale Clinic, it actually fits very well in with supporting you and the other treatments.
Reiki, hypnotherapy and regression therapy can help you to take control of and release seemingly unconscious compulsions and urges, maybe an addiction to chocolate that isn’t helping your weight loss plans, or a negative habit that keeps afflicting your personal relationships, or negative thoughts that keep derailing your best intentions and plans to make positive changes in your life or lifestyle.
Maria is an expert at looking under the surface of what appears to be happening, to your subconscious motivations, in order to shift or release habits that seem beyond your control.
This supports you and allows you to much more easily stick to the new path you have chosen to health and resilience.
The work itself may seem easy but the results are often surprisingly powerful!
Shiatsu Massage at the Hale Clinic – on Mondays from 4 until 8.30pm
Advanced bodywork techniques such as Shiatsu, which incorporates pressure points with soft tissue massage, addresses a broad spectrum of potential applications, from minor physical niggles to addressing deeper systemic issues such as nurturing life-force (Chi) or supporting the body to heal from major traumas such as aggressive surgery, major accidents or debilitating illnesses.

The body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care -Gautama the Buddha
Thirty minutes of absolute bliss! Just sitting in the specially designed chair was relaxing and then the massage was wonderful. A really brilliant way of relieving tensions of all kinds. Thirty minutes of absolute bliss!
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.

Especially enjoyed the Natural Facelift Massage after the Shiatsu session I have found Simon’s unique Shiatsu massage both relaxing and renewing. What I especially enjoyed was having his natural facelift massage after the shiatsu session so that I not only felt better; I also looked better as well! I would highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to de-stress and/or rev-up their general energy levels.
