Simon comes from a sporting background of rugby, powerlifting and Olympic weightlifting; as such, he has discovered first-hand the frustrations of injuries. His passion for physiotherapy comes from wanting to understand why something has occurred, realising that the best way to treat injuries is to address the whole picture and work with the person holistically. He started his career undertaking a sports massage qualification, working alongside Cambridge & Coleridge and Cambridge University Athletics Club. A close working relationship with the coaching staff allowed him to expand his knowledge and drive a further desire of knowledge on biomechanics and treatment of the human body.

Looking to develop further, Simon enrolled in an MSc in Physiotherapy at Brunel University London. During his time studying, Simon worked alongside Linford Christie, as a therapist for his academy’s athletes and was the lead soft tissue therapist for the Brunel Sports Scholar programme, supporting them through their training and British University & Colleges Sports competitions. He went to several national events with the Brunel Weightlifting team, keeping athletes in optimal performing condition and working on injury prevention by collaborating with the head coach for their programmes.

Simon understands both the physical and mental demands of being out of your favourite sport and takes great pleasure in working with his athletes; to optimise performance, prevent injuries and work holistically to rehabilitate back to competition. Currently he is working with Oxford University’s rugby teams, as well as the women’s lightweight rowing club. Supporting them through their training and aiming to give them an edge over Cambridge!
