Commencing Tai Chi Chuan and martial practices at the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Martial Arts, Northcote, Victoria in 1981. Undertaking initial massage training in 1989, Simon completed the Diploma of Remedial Massage at the Swinburne University of Technology in 2007.

 

Practicing a fusion of East and West, outcomes beyond expectation are achieved using Remedial assessment and treatment of postural problems for injury and pain, taking account of energetic Qi flow and structural leg length discrepancy. He is a highly experienced Sports Massage Therapist with accomplished competitive athletes. He has the sensitivity for unparalleled meditative Relaxation Massage.

Techniques employed include Deep Muscle, Tendon and Ligament Therapy, Swedish Massage, Direct and Indirect Fascial Release techniques, Lymphatic Drainage, Chinese Cupping & Gua Sha together with Trigger Point Therapy, Positional Release and Facilitated Stretching (Static, PNF and MET's), Heel Lift Treatment, Craniosacral Therapy, and Wholistic Massage Therapy.

This represents a broad approach to physical therapy from the most gentle meditative methods to more overt physical releases that will may cause residual pain over the following few days. It is all about improving posture, opening and clearing tightness, removing stagnation so that energetic Qi flow can resume. 

 

Assessment and treatment of structural leg length discrepancies is an important aspect of this practice. The consequent pelvic tilt and lumbro-sacral distortion being an underlying cause for many lower limb and spinal issues. Short Right Leg Syndrome is a dominant genetic trait in Homo Sapiens typically overlooked by medico's and therapists.
