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.

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.
