Testimonials

Have been loving Foundation Training classes with Simeon. Huge benefits to not only general fitness, I have also noticed a significant improvement in my posture and running endurance as well. Thoroughly recommended.”

Becky

“I have been treated by Simeon for over a year and I am always impressed by how passionate he is about helping people; how easy he is to talk to; he is a good listener and has a very professional and caring manner. Most importantly, he is an extremely skilled chiropractor. I have benefited enormously because of his knowledge of fascia, as well as his skill in adjustments. As I have complex issues and there is always plenty to do, I am extremely grateful that Simeon offers one hour appointments.”

Simeon has been helping my son, who is an elite amateur golfer, to maintain his movement and flexibility throughout the busy tournament season. It is especially important for golfers, who need to maintain flexion and strength but who become very one sided, with Simeon’s help, my son can feel tension free, maintain his strength and flexibility prior to tournaments.

About

My Journey to becoming a Chiropractor :

Being a physically active person, I always wanted to work in an active job working with people and helping them to be healthy. I explored different routes in Medicine, Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, and Chiropractic; my decision to pursue Chiropractic was made by carefully researching and receiving treatment from these different professions/techniques to find the methods I considered to be most consistent and effective. I went on to train and graduate with a First Class Masters degree from McTimoney College of Chiropractic, in the UK 

Upright Postures Clinic

Previous Employment to present:

After finishing my placement in the Student clinic at McTimoney College, I travelled for a few months before moving back to North Devon, where I was employed full time in a Chiropractic clinic in Braunton for a couple of years. I have since become self-employed and am working from several locations. 

Setting Up my Own Clinic:

The reason for setting up on my own is because in order to truly help you it takes time to understand you i.e. how you use your body on a daily basis etc. Being self-employed enables me to provide you the time that you need to thoroughly work with you on your journey to achieving your goals, whether they be to simply help you through a recent episode of back pain or in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle

Upright Postures Chiropractic Clinic

My Commitment: 

I am committed, if you seek my help, to helping you find the reason behind your pain and re-discover your foundation upon core elements of movement and posture, with a healthy nervous system, to re-establish a firm grounding from which you can move forwards on a healthy path away from chronic pain and the potent reminder of acute pain.

Techniques

I am currently a registered Chiropractor with the General Chiropractic Council.

My qualifications include: 

Certified NeuroImpulse Protocol (NIP) Practitioner, McTimoney Chiropractor, and Foundation Training instructor.

Since graduating, my specialty has been NIP, a technique developed by Dr Neil Davies of AustraliaNIP particularly interests me because it is a very thorough and precise system of analysing the condition of your body, and ensures that the appropriate adjustment is being made into your nervous system, in the right place, at the right time.  

What is NIP? 

NIP is a unique neurological chiropractic technique that very precisely assesses any joint, muscle, or sensory tissue in the body. The assessment will determine how well the brain is receiving and interpreting signals (sensory information) from the body.  

Find out more on the official NIP website.

Why do I need NIP? 

With various life stresses the brain can become sensory overloaded and send the wrong signals back to the joints or muscles etc. Different types of stresses that could induce this include: physical (day to day posture, accidents/traumas, sports injuries etc), chemical (things we eat and drink too much of or that we’re intolerant to), and emotional stresses (family, financial, or other worries). Sensory overload puts pressure on the nervous system, weakening it, thus exposing the body to injury and pain.  

How can this technique help me? 

The NIP technique very effectively and gently resets the nervous system, which will increase the health of the whole body, and structurally will maintain optimum joint and muscle movement, helping to increase strength and quality of life, predict and prevent injury, and reduce overall tension. This gentle technique is effective for helping all age groups, and was initially designed for infants and children. 

What should I expect? 

The correction (adjustment/treatment) using NIP is very simple and gentle, nothing is forcedNo “cracking and crunching” techniques are usedThe NIP has demonstrated that the common locations of stiffness and pain in the neck and lower back are often a compensation pattern, not necessarily the cause of the presenting restrictions.

 Adjunctive Therapies: 

To compliment the NIP I use Myofascial Release (MFR), involving gentle sustained pressure in a particular problem areaYour body is made up of fascia from top to toe, inside and out, down to the smallest cell structure; when our stress response is activated in our bodies it causes the body to lay down more fascial fibres, creating restriction/stiffness. In todays society the majority of people are surviving on their own stress response, and as a result their joints and soft tissues will become increasingly stiff. Yocan help yourself with healthy physical movements, but you also need to calm and reset the nervous system, which NIP is designed for.  

In addition to the manual techniques that I useI compliment my work with an exercise technique called “Foundation Training” (FT) designed by Dr Eric Goodman in the USA. It’s a system of posture exercises designed to integrate proper movement along the muscle chains of the body that run from top to toe. Integration with FT empowers you with a strong upright posture, restoring the muscles to their designed length and position. FT also works to prevent injury and increase athletic performance, and will resolve many pain issues by restoring balance to the body and decompressing the spine. It is an incredible technique used by a number of the top athletes and coaches around the world.
