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 in London

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 reduce the chance of injury and manage 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 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, the 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 optimum level of health and Well-being. He ensures all treatments are tailored to suit your unique requirements, targeting specific problem areas and providing the relief, relaxation and support you need.

Thai Yoga Massage TestimonialI felt refreshed and relaxed for days after the massage

I had a 90 minute full body Thai Yoga Massage from Simon and I felt very relaxed all the way through the session. First of all the room was set up well, it was warm and relaxing music was playing. He made sure I was comfortable and relaxed.  I really enjoyed the experience and made my painful knee much better by applying careful massage around the area. My neck and shoulders felt much better the next day, and overall I felt refreshed and relaxed for days after the massage. I can highly recommend Simon, he knows what he is doing!!
