Short Right Leg Syndrome and Heel Lift Treatment
The two signature traits of a Short Right Leg are an elevated left hip and elevated right shoulder. This gave mother and child a greater chance of survival in prehistoric times...child on the left hip, bag over the right shoulder and right arm free for work and defence. It was the most successful model. It is now a dominant genetic trait in Homo Sapiens. Compensating distortion through the pelvis for a structural leg length difference is the underlying cause of many conditions. Medico's and therapists typically do not assess for it. In the presence of acute symptoms, lower limbs or back, a 3mm or 5mm heel lift resolves issues.

I have been treating anxiety and tension with Simon for months. He is such a highly experienced professional who always knows exactly what to do to relieve your symptoms, combining a rich set of western and eastern techniques that make you feel incredibly well. He has unblocked so much trapped energy from me and I can't thank him enough!
As a keen golfer I need my back to be loose. Simon has been great for me, with regular massaging and cupping proving to be very effective. He has also had great success with my tight calves, I especially have noticed significant improvements since he has incorporated some Thai techniques.
After 15 years of hard labour in the hairdressing industry with almost 10 years of pain in my arms and wrists, Simon in only two sessions was able to relieve the pain I had. I have seen a lot of practioners over the years who had promised me results, Simon promised nothing and delivered more than what I could have expected. These practioners were all saying that the pain was as a result of tennis elbow or carpal tunnel and that an operation was needed, apparently there was no way I could also continue in my industry. With Simons help through Remedial Massage he was able to fix my Chronic pain issues within two sessions, I would absolutely call him the Shoulder Guru! What a relief! His Pain Free methods have given me an extra pep in my step and have made me feel a lot more confident to continue in my current salon. Thanks again Simon.... Alexandre :)
I have been to multiple masseurs over the years, trying to find the right one. I came across Simon, who had a glowing review on 'True Local' and I am pleased to say, that the reviews weren't wrong.
I too now, highly recommend Simon's services.
I was looking for a Deep Tissue/Sports Massage to aid recovery of a back injury sustained during a riding accident. Simon completed a full assessment of my injury and proceeded with treatment on a weekly basis. Simon achieved what any of the previous Masseurs were unable to do. Simon also recommended exercises to complete at home, to help strengthen my muscles, and complement the massage regime.read more
