About Simon

Simon moved to Easingwold in 1988 setting up Todd House Clinic in the same year and has been working there ever since. He has been practicing at the Good Health Centre since 2008.

In addition he was senior lecturer and clinic tutor in Osteopathy at Leeds Beckett University before the course closed in 2017. In 2012 he gained a PGCACE (Postgraduate Certificate In Academic and Clinical Education).

He was for a time Regional co-ordinator for the North East seeing the profession move from Voluntary Regulation to Statutory Self-Regulation following the Osteopaths Act of 1993. Despite relinquishing that role he continues to work for the profession as a Regional Osteopathic Careers Officer (ROCO) and would be happy to talk to any aspiring Osteopaths! He would also be happy to give talks on Osteopathy.

Simon is a recognised provider with most health insurers and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy. He has an excellent working relationship with all local GPs and consultants and will write referral letters as and when appropriate.

I had an appointment for my 16 week old baby and for myself with Simon Barron. My baby has been having some feeding issues and trapped wind. Instantly I felt heard, and in safe hands. Simon is so knowledgeable and explained why we might be having these problems & why the baby might be a bit tense in certain areas. It all made sense finally. Simon was gentle and so good with my baby (he really enjoyed it and was all smiles!) Simon taught us exercises and techniques to try at home with the baby and they are already helping him. I’m so grateful we found Simon and will be returning frequently. Don’t fret if you’re wondering about doing this for your baby, it’s 100% worth it!

Simon and Josh are two of the best Osteopaths I’ve seen at Good Health for my sport injuries. They have helped me prepare for Hyrox, treated running and cycling injuries. I’d highly recommend them both!

I have used the Good Health centre over many years. Seb, one of the osteopaths, helps me maintain a quality of life that I wouldn't otherwise enjoy. He is always patient and kind, and treats me with respect. The receptionists are always cheerful, and make one feel welcome. I would highly recommend.
