Simon Duncan - Osteopath

B.Sc. (hons) in Osteopathy & Dip. Osteopathy

Upon graduation from the European School of Osteopathy (UK) in 1999, with a B.Sc. (hons) in Osteopathy and Diploma in Osteopathy, Simon moved to Milan, Italy searching further challenges. Although his patient list was primarily sedentary or manufacturing industry workers, his experience includes regularly treating some of Europe’s most elite ballerinas, contemporary dancers and maestri at La Scala, Milano and Studio Danza Insieme, professional tennis and basketball players, and elite level gymnasts. Simon’s treatment success lies in the combining of tried and tested techniques with the creation of techniques developed for the actual presenting problem, not dividing, but integrating musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial body systems. Simon firmly believes in treating the sapling so the tree grows straight, and so has been treating and helping infants for many years, especially his 3 young children who are his best advertisements. While running a successful practice and, gaining 14 years of experience in teaching & clinical roles at the International College of Osteopathic Education, he completed a pitch-side medical assistance course in Scotland and an advanced course in Sports Osteopathy with the University of Bicocca Milan. Over the years, Simon has organised either the osteopathic services or the full medical services at the Milan Marathon, 2 ATP Tennis Challenger, 3 ATP Tennis Futures level tennis tournaments and at the AFL European Cup held in Italy in 10/2012 that included 15 teams arriving from all over Europe. He is also a PTR registered tennis coach, an avid skier and, also hopes to return to the basketball court after returning to his hometown after nearly 20 years abroad. He speaks fluent Italian, rusty German, seriously rusty Swedish and very seriously rusty French.
