Biography

Simon King grew up in Auckland, NZ and had his first chiropractic treatment after falling off a chair at the age of 6. That early treatment seemed to end his prior need for weekly blood tests that were searching for the origin of a “leukaemic-like” condition and ironically, low muscle tone. At the age of 14, he took up bike racing and made the NZ cycling team at the age of 17, competing in road and track events in New Zealand and Australia, including the Empire Games in 1980. He started his chiropractic studies at the RMIT (then PIT) in Melbourne, being part of the first-ever government-funded chiropractic course. After 5 years’ full-time study he practiced for 2 years on the Gold Coast in Australia before taking up a teaching post at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, England, and then moved back into practice in Retford, Nottinghamshire and Grantham, Lincolnshire. As his practice developed, he became fascinated by the fact that certain patients responded to treatment easily while others did not and the difference could not be explained by current knowledge or teaching. He became a diplomate of the International College of Applied Kinesiology in 1996. He has been teaching Proprioceptive Medicine and Afferent Input to health professionals for 20 years and is currently practicing in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.
