  • 5 star review  I went to Sunbear on a recommendation because I get bad pain in my lower back/hip. I cannot speak highly enough of Sunbear Shiatsu! The pain is going away, and if I have regular appointments it isn't there at all. If you have any pain or just want a great massage, I would definitely give them a go. It is working for me 🙂

  • 5 star review  This was definitely one of the best shiatsu massages I have ever had. Gerald was able to work on problem areas to alleviate pain and helped me relax. I left feeling calmer and more relaxed. Highly recommended.

  • 5 star review  A true understanding of the energetic body and what is needed in body work. Post visit I experienced unblocking of unshifted emotions and physical alignment. There isn’t anything glamorous about the premises but the therapy is fantastic. I’ll go back.

    thumb Sina King
  • 5 star review  Been getting massages for years, and whilst they have been beneficial at times, the benefits have always been temporary. I’ve been going to Sunbear Shiatsu for about 6 months and the treatment I’ve received has been astounding. Gerald has an incredible intuition which he applies, the adjustments he gives have made a significant impact on my physical and energetic bodies, and I cannot be happier with the service. Added to this, Gerald plays the best chill-ambient music which puts me in such a relaxed and restorative state, it just makes me happy. Highly recommended, 5-stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    thumb Andrew Padula
  • 5 star review  Shiatsu massage was of a high quality. I found Gerald to be polite, friendly and attentive to your needs. (I hadn’t had a treatment since November 2019 as my therapist retired). After my first treatment with Gerald, I experienced immediate results. I felt much more balanced and noticed the improvement in my posture and movement. I was able to sit in a Yoga position with less pain in my knee. I left feeling floaty and light, as if a weight had been lifted. Gerald is clearly an amazing therapist and I highly recommend him.

    thumb Luciana Pase
  • 5 star review  I’ve probably had 500 shiatsu massages in my life. My mate Caitlin gave me a voucher and Gerald was brilliant. Skilled, intuitive and professional. Five stars from me. Highly recommend.

    thumb Catherine Deveny
