Simon is registered with the General Osteopathic council (www.osteopathy.org.uk), The British Osteopathic Association (www.osteopathy.org) and The British medical Acupuncture Society (www.medical-acupuncture.co.uk). He is also a member of the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners. Having undertaken postgraduate training in the interpretation of MRI scans in conjunction with Vista diagnostics, Simon can offer direct referrals at affordable prices. Immediate MRI scans available from £200 and Ultrasound scans from £99. www.vistadiagnostics.co.uk Also available as an adjunct to Osteopathy, Simon is trained in Western medical acupuncture, a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine. While Western medical acupuncture has evolved from Chinese acupuncture, its practitioners no longer adhere to concepts such as Yin/Yang and circulation of qi, and regard acupuncture as part of conventional medicine rather than a complete “alternative medical system”. Simon is also a registered Yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance.
