Welcome to The Shiatsu Guy, Specialists in providing the best Shiatsu Massage in London!
Shiatsu massage is excellent for 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 massage 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 massage in London is popular with Office workers suffering from tight necks, backs and shoulders. Shiatsu massage is 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 massage is very adaptable and allows our therapists 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 Shiatsu 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.
Ideally, we’d recommend ongoing Shiatsu treatments, such as once a month if your issues are minor. We recommend weekly Shiatsu sessions if you have more serious levels of stress or long-term issues that need ongoing management through bodywork and massage.
Who or what is The Shiatsu Guy?
The Shiatsu Guy was founded in 2008 by Simon Henderson when he had finished his Shiatsu training and was looking for a name that encapsulated what it was that he did…
And after some effort, The Shiatsu Guy was born!
Over the following years Simon worked hard delivering Shiatsu massage in London to stressed out Londoners (and visitors to London) in a number of central London clinics including The Hale Clinic in Great Portland Street, Physical Health Clinic in Moorgate, Movers & Shapers and Love Food in West Hampstead, from Canvas and Cream therapy rooms in Forest Hill as well as several other clinics over the years.
Simon found success in helping numerous people with their physicals pain and tension, low energy and emotional ailments, all through the powerful medium of Shiatsu massage.
Simon also added to this a bespoke treatment for those suffering from TMJ issues such as bruxism, clenching and grinding teeth. His unique combination of Shiatsu and RESET TMJ therapy brought relief to many happy people.
Alongside this Simon also had his own Corporate massage Agency, On-site Massage London, where he and other therapists delivered Corporate Massage in Offices and at Events throughout London.
At the beginning of 2015 Simon launched his Podcast, The Shiatsu Guy presents… where he interviewed top therapists, visionaries and teachers of complementary therapies.
But as the years passed he felt a calling to travel the world more and explore other lands… But at the same time, he didn’t want to leave his clients behind. As Simon left on his Sabbatical he gathered a group of hand-picked Shiatsu therapist to look after his clients and any new inquiries in his absence.

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 🙂
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.
A Very Relaxing Experience
I highly recommend Simon. He has a very calming welcoming presence and his massage is amazing!
Simon really listens to his clients, has great awareness of the body and makes the massage a very relaxing experience. The benefits of his massages extend into my day-to-day wellbeing because Simon also helps me to understand what’s going on with my muscles and joints and to identify habits potentially causing aches and knots.
Simon visits our offices regularly, and as I had been suffering from a sore shoulder and neck for many weeks, I decided to give the On Site Chair Massage a go. I’ve not had this treatment before, and it was certainly very relaxing!
But the great news was the huge relief it brought to the nagging pain in my neck and shoulder. An incredible result for one 30 minute session, treating a condition that has resisted many a spirited massage! Recommended!
I felt much more alert after the massage, and calmer in order to be organised and focused on my tasks for the day. Both relaxing and energised.
Amongst the top 3 massages that I have had
I am a regular attendee at the Mind Body Spirit Festival and have a lot of Shiatsu and other massages. I have to say, yours is ranking amongst the top 3 massages that I have had!
Recommended to anyone who wants a pampering or a good pummelling
Excellent massage and service.
Simon is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. I always look forward to my massage, he is able to get rid of my sports related knots and pain in time for me to mess it all up again! 🙂
Simon’s knowledge does not end with the massage, he knows everything about healthy living and wellbeing and has given me lots of interesting tips to think about.
I would, and have recommended him to anyone who wants either pampering or a good pummelling.
Helped alleviate my back pain
Simon’s shiatsu therapy *touch & pressure* technique has helped alleviate my back pain. I would strongly recommend anyone to see Simon who suffers from frequent pain in the back or neck. He makes you feel relaxed and definitely has good healing hands.
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.
I’d not had a Shiatsu massage before meeting Simon. The treatment is gentle but effective. It is a clothed treatment, Simon brings a thin mattress which is laid on the floor and all you need to provide is a pillow.
I have found that I have benefited from the treatments and always look forward to my next one.
He has a kind and gentle manner combined with a confident air that inspires trust. I cannot recommend Simon enough, as he is professional and truly seems interested in his clients well-being…
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.
I would definitely recommend it
I had a Shiatsu massage with Simon and loved it! I felt stretched and relaxed, exactly what I needed as I work at a desk all day and am slouched most of the time…!
This kind of treatment is great if you have specific parts of the body that ache or are tense. I would definitely recommend it.
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.
