My name is Slava Tchakaloff, I am a shiatsu, chair massage and reiki therapist.
After working as a lawyer for the film industry, I discovered Shiatsu in 2013 when a therapist friend treated my stiff neck and a recurrent knee tendinitis with amazing results. I quickly became fascinated by this practice which incorporates not only physical manipulations but also a certain kind of wisdom inspired by traditional Chinese Medicine and Japanese philosophy.
I joined the Professional Shiatsu School in London and trained in Puro Shiatsu: a style which is directly derived from the Namikoshi style, currently practiced and recognized as a therapy in Japan.
Since 2014, I have been involved with various community projects including The Shiatsu Community Clinic run by the Shiatsu Volunteers and Centre 151 Massages shalas. (You can visit my facebook page or consult the news section to know when the next event is happening!)
Later on, I became interested in Reiki and decided to complete my Level 1 and 2 Certifications with Michael Kaufmann.
I am a member of CThA for both therapies and I currently practise in London.

“I experienced shiatsu for the first time with Slava. At first I wasn’t sure about the efficiency of shiatsu massages but Slava’s treatments helped me to get rid of a pain and numbness I had for several weeks in my hand and fingers.
Also her kindness is definitely a plus.
Thanks and see you soon “
