What our clients say
Mario is the most incredible masseur and Shiatsu specialist. I came to see Mario many months ago in the hope he could help me with chronic menstrual pain caused by Endometriosis. He has tailored my weekly visits and has not only managed to help reduce pain so I stop taking strong medicine, his Shiatsu treatments have helped to realign my body and mind. I equally enjoy Marios Shiatsu treatments as well as his award winning chair massage. I can recommend Mario wholeheartedly, he is friendly and professional in a relaxing environment.
"For years I have searched London for a high-calibre shiatsu therapist with the same physical power and discipline as the traditional Japanese shiatsu I have come to know in Canada and Asia. I finally found my answer in Mário de Sousa, whose passionate approach to Seiki shiatsu has brought relief to my 12 years of chronic back pain. Mário is intuitive and generous, and I salute his dogged determination to solve my problem."
"I have had sports injuries for years and after a few massages with Mario I am now starting to exercise again, pain free. A professional and also an expert in his field, Mario truly connects with you and quickly understands how to treat your body. I will definitely be visiting again very soon!"
Andrea Noble,Noble Empowerment (CEO & Founder)
"With Mario I had my first chair massage. He was wholly professional, took time to connect with me from my arrival, worked wonders on tension, injury, meridians - I floated home! I thoroughly recommend."
I’ve been suffering from severe sciatica pain since 2012.
In almost two hours of session Mario combined several treatments and helped me to relieve the pain and relax all my muscles.
He started with a shiatsu chair massage for my blocked neck followed by a long seiki meridian shiatsu treatment ended by a full body yoga stretch.
I ‘ve never felt so relaxed in my life!!!
I strongly recommend him!!!
Highly recommended - as a mother and therapist it is important to look after myself and today I received my first and not the last treatment from Mario.
His professionalism is outstanding and connected so well with me as his clients that he knew exactly where my tense spots of stored energy and tight muscles were - knowing exactly how to release and relax not only those points but my entire mind, body and soul. I feel in complete homeostasis so thank you Mario I look forward to my next treatment.
Mario may well be the most popular person at Wunderman Thompson! He is always booked solid with a waiting list and many others asking when he will be back in. He is very client focused and takes time to understand what you need. We have had fantastic feedback from employees saying they have felt the benefits long after the actual massage.
