Massage in Crete - Crete Massage Services - Thai Massage in Crete - Heraklion - Archanes - KnossosSimon is a New Zealand born, London trained Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage therapist, who is now living in Eastern Crete and giving bespoke massage in the Cretan village of Archanes, Knossos and Heraklion, with other areas serviced upon request.

What is Shiatsu?

Shiatsu is a Japanese acupressure massage performed through clothing, utilising the energetically balancing effect of pressure points and meridian lines. Shiatsu is extremely effective at reducing stress related conditions in the body, helping you get back to a natural balance quickly and easily.

What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai Yoga Massage is Shiatsu’s cousin from Thailand and has many similarities but several differences too. Thai Yoga massage is also performed through clothing, is very relaxing and energising, yet has more of a focus on stretching the body. Some people call it ‘Yoga for Lazy people’. Thai Yoga massage is great for those experiencing tightness and lack of flexibility in their bodies.

Both Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage are amazing ways to feel better in your body quickly. But what other therapies in Crete are available?

Simon also does a treatment around the jaw and TMJ, helping people who suffer from Bruxism (clenching and grinding their teeth), clicking, popping and painful jaws. He performs a special combination of Shiatsu with an energetic healing technique called RESET (which comes from kinesiology).

Simon speaks basic Russian and German too, so if you are a native Russian or German speaker you should be able to make yourself understood on important health matters. Simon is also working on his Greek, so hopefully soon he will be able to treat native Greek speakers too.
