When you are treated by our senior practitioner Simon Curtis MSc, BSc  (Hons) DO MIOA, you get the benefit of more than 20 years of intensive academic training, learning, and real world experience.

Simon began by gaining a BSc in Physiology from the University of London. Physiology is the science of how humans and other animals function in an integrated way and is the basis for many of the biological and clinical sciences.

Fascinated by what he learned while on this course, Simon then went on to study Osteopathy, graduating from the respected British School of Osteopathy in 1989. A special interest in pain and the body lead Simon to study for and in 1998 successfully complete an M.Sc in Neurophysiology.

Simon has continued to study ever since, refreshing and expanding both his practical and theoretical knowledge and expertise, most recently completing in 2012 the Irish Rugby Football Union accredited Standard Approach to Field Emergencies in Rugby or "SAFE Rugby" course to Level 2 Standard.
