Since swapping the world of acting for a treatment room in the 1990s, Simon has qualified as a Remedial and Sports Therapist, Hypnotherapist, Sports Hypnotherapist, Cranio-Sacral Therapist, Reiki Master and most recently a Mindfulness Coach and teacher.
Simon worked as part of the original Holmes Place treatment suite in Chelsea before setting up in private practice alongside Philip Waldman, Craig Coman and Halina Osinski. In 2006 he established Corehealth, a Pilates and Treatment clinic in Crouch End with his wife Lorraine and in 2008 opened Chelsea Natural Health Clinic in partnership with Philip Waldman, where he practices two days a week.
As an experienced Sports and Remedial Therapist, Simon employs Remedial therapies, Sports Massage, Myofascial bodywork, K-Taping, Dry-needling, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Hypnosis and Mindfulness to facilitate healing, change and balance.
He treats Sports Injuries, any muscular and skeletal complaint, work-related postural issues, stress conditions, pre and post natal discomfort and anxiety, and issues relating to pressure, stress and anxiety.
His core practices involve Releasing Pressure and Promoting Slow-Health and Lighting Fires.
He believes and adheres to the principle that where there is an injury, trauma or discomfort, there will be a level of dis-abling pressure present. This may be in the form of external pressures: training schedules, work pressures, money issues as well as physical or biological pressures. There are also the internal pressures: our self-talk, should, oughts and musts that lead to anxiety and stress, which influences how we treat ourselves, how we train, eat, drink and respond to experiences.
Musculo-skeletal injuries, Sports Injuries, stress related conditions or psycho-emotional issues can best be addressed and dealt with if the mind, brain and body is enabled to slow-down, to rest, as during this rest the vital and natural healing abilities of the body can function without interference or hindrance from both internal and external stresses. This is Slow-Health at its core.
As an experienced marathon runner, training tips, diet and nutrition, Pilates exercises, sports psychology and motivation, have become a core of Simon’s treatment approach. Having recently completed his first ultra-marathon in South Africa, his focus is increasingly tending towards treating running and exercise related injuries and working with various runners issues.

From 2004 to 2007 Simon was able to combine his theatre and performance experience with his psychotherapy background to work with Olivier Mythodrama, providing Leadership trainings and coaching. This has led to Simon running his own sport psychology workshops, The Quest: Personal Adventure seminars, Mindfulness workshops and most recently provided his relaxation and sleep audio for in-flight services on Lufthansa and Cathay Pacific long-haul.
His most recent health and wellness recordings: Smoke Free, Anxiety Release, Breathe Easy can be heard and downloaded from www.corehealthsuite.com
He recently launched his Stretches for Runners on You Tube,
Simon also now teaches Mindfulness Meditation using the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction programme.
Finally, his passion is helping others and himself to get re-aligned with our values, with what matters to us, when this happens we will know what we need to do and why we need to do it. This is the Lighting Fires bit.
He is registered with the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists, and is a member of the London and Counties Society of Physiologists. As co-director of Chelsea Natural Health Clinic he is proud to be part of this exciting and developing practice.
What people say:
When I first I met Simon (via a recommendation from a marathon running friend) I was unable to run following a 75km run in the depths of winter. Despite XRays, an MRi scan, and visits to both a physiotherapist and an osteopath, nobody could locate the source of my problem. Within 1 session Simon had confidently identified my issue and more importantly had said “I will get you to the start line of your next race” (at this point I was about 12 weeks away from my first 100km). True to his word, I turned up on race day feeling fit and confident and got through it with no issues at all.
Simon is fantastic because he is a runner himself. He understands the physical issues, but just as importantly, the mental aspect to running, both of which need to be managed together. He is always an immensely reassuring presence and I now unhesitatingly recommend him to anyone I meet with problems. In addition to ‘magic hands’ he has shown me a range of stretches that have materially improved my flexibility, as well as introducing me to the benefits of kinesiology tape.
Would I be running today without Simon ? I doubt it.

Simon has been looking after my back for about 8 yrs now, after trying all different types of treatments and people he is the only one who keeps me upright!! The man should never be allowed to take a holiday.
Simon Heale has the rare ability to bring his deep knowledge of the human body with the strength and energy of a competitive and gifted runner to offer a unique massage, which reinvigorates, heals tired or aching muscles and leaves one feeling a new person.
I have been one of Simon’s therapeutic massage clients for nearly a year and he excels at pinpointing and treating the areas that require attention. Being an arthritis sufferer following accidental injury he soothes the pain with his deep tissue massage so that the need for pain killers is eliminated. He’s also a great listener and perks you up with positive encouragement. I highly recommend him and rely on his fortnightly maintenance treatment to minimize, otherwise very nasty symptoms.
‘In the area of bodywork, Simon is absolutely outstanding. In addition, his background as an actor, and his work in the personal development and leadership fields combine to give him a highly distinctive set of skills and many areas of contribution in relation to people’s well-being.
I had back surgery 10 years ago (a mistake) and currently work long days in the City, frequently flying and rarely looking after myself properly. My back frequently flares up and I have seen 100s of physios, osteos, chiropractors, surgeons, etc. over the years to find a solution / help manage my back. Nobody from any of these disciplines matches Simon’s extra sensory understanding of the back, body and mind. I would recommend him to anyone and frequently do to friends, colleagues and clients. I work in an incredibly demanding industry which makes me pretty fussy, for thers who also seek out extremely high quality service, I happily recommend Mr Simon Heale.
