We now have a new London based therapist who has been recently trained to perform the RESET TMJ Treatment. Our therapist is already an experienced Shiatsu Therapist and will be combining RESET TMJ Release together in the method that Simon (The Original Shiatsu Guy) has developed over the last 10 years of working with many clients suffering from TMJ issues.
Please email info@TheShiatsuGuy.com to find out more and to book in your session.
85 to 90% of tension held within the body is located in the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), an area which, if imbalanced, can cause a multitude of problems, from postural issues, neck pain and headaches, locking and clicking jaws, tinnitus and hearing difficulties, to clenching and bruxism (grinding of the teeth). If you have been searching for an answer and not found one, or if your only hope seems to be surgery, then you must try this protocol first!
The Rafferty Energy System of Easing the Temporomandibular joint or (RESET) TMJ Treatment is a simple, non-invasive treatment, which releases tension retained within the masseter, sternocleidomastoid and other muscles of the head, neck and jaw, and enables the body to relax and regain its natural balance. During the treatment, the therapist’s hands are directed in a sequence of movements over the body, focusing in particular on the jaw and facial muscles.
RESET TMJ Treatment produces a rebalancing effect on these muscles, releasing tension if they are too tight (hypertonic) or replenishing them if they lack tone (hypotonic).
RESET TMJ Release is similar to a Reiki treatment, as it is a very gentle and energetic treatment that works very subtly to rebalance the body. Some people are more comfortable with a more active treatment such as Shiatsu to the head, neck and shoulders, which is equally effective but works on a different principle.
Just call for a free consultation and to discuss your options and preferences.
TMJ Release Treatment Protocol
Simon has been developing his treatment protocol over the last 10 years to find the most effective combination of RESET TMJ Release, Shiatsu techniques and Craniosacral Therapy in order to bring out a deep and lasting release and rebalancing to the muscles of the head, neck and jaw, which in turn releases the tension and allows the TMJ to return to a place of pain-free ease.
Simon has found that a series of 3 to 6 x 60-minute sessions, carried out around a week apart is ideal for long-term relief, with occasional top-ups (around 3 to 6 months after the initial treatment) as required. Simon is currently developing a comprehensive support package to help you get the best results from your treatments and empowering you to be self-sufficient in managing recurring symptoms in future (check back soon for updates!) There is now a TMJ Relief support page on Facebook with a series of videos giving tips to TMJ Sufferers so they can understand and manage their own symptoms
Although it is likely that you will experience pain and tension relief after your first session of Shiatsu and RESET TMJ Release it is important that you complete the course of treatments in order to gain the full and lasting benefits of the sessions. Tension resides in our bodies at different levels and as it takes time to build up it also takes time to be removed.
Emotional basis of TMJ Disorder
Issues with the Jaw and TMJ disorders, in particular, are likely to have a basis in stress and some held or unresolved emotional charge, even if they are seemingly irrelevant or barely remembered experiences, it is very likely that a combination of emotionally stressful events of your past have triggered the symptoms. This therapy is not a ‘talkie therapy’ so won’t explore these issues with you as such, but it is beneficial to be observant of what arises during the treatments and to allow these experiences to leave your body. You can talk about them if you want but it’s not necessary for the treatments to be effective. As such it is wise to be aware that in the days after the treatment you may experience various emotions coming to the surface. Just observe these and allow them to pass through you. They are no longer needed in your body.

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!
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.
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 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’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…
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 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.
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
