Functional medicine is an approach to health care that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of disease. Functional medicine for autism involves a comprehensive evaluation of your physical, biochemical, and psychological health which is measured using non-invasive home testing kits, in other words, a urine, stool or breath sample. This is a very calming and gentle approach to healthcare that is particularly suitable for children with autism or indeed anyone with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ADD or neurodiversity. All consultations take place online and all tests are done in the comfort of your own home. The courier will collect the samples from you and deliver them to the laboratory. Simone will then get your results back 3-6 weeks later, depending on the test. Simone uses a variety of therapies, such as nutrition, dietary supplementation, lifestyle modifications, and stress management, to help address the underlying causes of autism and improve overall health and well-being.
Anyone who feels nothing can be done to alleviate a long term health problem , would benefit from Simone's assessment and knowledge...

In the time I’ve been coming to visit Simone, the treatment I’ve had off her have done me the world of good. I would recommend her practice to anyone.
I have been treated by Simone for the last 8 months or so. Her holistic approach to acupuncture and advice on nutrition, health and general wellbeing has been invaluable to both me and my husband, I couldn’t recommend her practice highly enough!
I happily travel from Berkshire to Wales for treatment by Simone.She is such an exprienced practitioner in Acupuncture and Herbalism. Her enthusiasm for her craft is uplifting and her talent is endless.Such a kind and compassionate lady too.
Simone is a truly amazing practitioner. A serious upper back injury had left me with severe muscle triggers (knots or sticky muscles as one Physio called them), causing the muscles to contract to such a degree they caused a curvature of the spine. Although there was a great deal of relief through conventional medicine in the year immediately following injury, there remained a significant amount of pain and still the spine curvature. Over the next five years I saw a variety of physiotherapists, a chiropractor and an acupuncturist practicing traditional Chinese medicine only. There were some improvements, but all were short lived and in some instances the treatment made the condition positively worse. I was convinced in my own mind acupuncture was still my best chance for significant improvement.. I came across Simone through internet search and attended her clinic in Penarth. She listened attentively to my long story and began treatment. After a few sessions it was predominantly the combination of deep massage (she uses her elbow so be prepared), and electro acupuncture which seemed to provided the most promise. At first there did not appear to be a significant improvement, but this changed after about five treatments. Then after about the the eighth treatment the major triggers were just gone and my spine was more or less straight again for the first time in almost six years. She was also able to provide me with significant relief for hip pain.
Simone is a dedicated, passionate and in my opinion highly skilled professional whom I have no hesitation in recommending.
After spending well over £1,000 on various treatments to alleviate my on going back pain I finally stumbled across acupuncture…….. even better, I found Simone. After several years of excruciating pain, time off work sick, continuously spending money and eventually wondering where to turn, Simone came to the rescue. I can’t recommend Simone enough, she listened to what I had to say and adapted the treatment according to my problems at the time. The improvement was remarkable and I still find it hard to believe that acupuncture could make such a difference when everything else I tried had failed so dismally. I have been completely converted from a non believer. If you are suffering and struggling to find a fix then I absolutely 100% recommend you call Simone, she’s given me a new lease of life.
As a nutritionist I have been a raving fan of Acupuncture for some time but having treatments and working with Simone has been even better than I anticipated. She has a wealth of experience not just as a practicing acupuncturist but in holistic health including nutrition and herbal medicine. She has an intuitive and thorough way of working and I have had great reports form clients I have referred to her. When your body is blocked with stress and long term underlying problems messages, hormones and enzymes can’t do their best to keep us mentally and physically healthy. I feel so fortunate to have such a brilliant health practitioner in my area.
Fantastic holistic therapist and acupuncture! Simone has a breadth of experience and is so supportive of all aspects of health and wellbeing, she always seems to know exactly what is needed. Would highly recommend.
Simone has a wealth of experience, a competent and caring manner and has quickly relieved all my symptoms. Thank you Simone
Simone provides essential treatment for coping with the daily demands of life, not just when specific issues need addressing. See Simone on a regular basis is a key part of my self care regime, and I know I couldn’t deal with half as much as I am needed to without her ongoing care and support.
I’ve been visiting Simone regularly for treatment. I always leave our sessions feeling extremely relaxed, and rejuvenated. I think she is fantastic, and I’d highly recommend her.
I’ve found the treatments with Simone to be really helpful and would recommend to anyone. Simone is very kind, easy to talk to and knowledgeable about acupuncture and the benefits of other Chinese medicine practices. She has helped me a lot, thanks Simone!
Highly recommend Simone from Barefoot Medicine. She is extremely knowledgeable, intuitive and professional. Her practice takes into consideration the needs of the individual client. I am very pleased to find a therapist so thoroughly commited to overall physical, mental and emotional health.
Simone is a breath of fresh air! She has a fantastic holistic view at diagnosis and then formulates a plan of what will be most effective. A truly bespoke service. I would highly recommend. (Great care is taken in this time of COVID-19 too)
I have been having acupuncture with Simone for many years, originally for muscle and joint pain which has improved. I am now having acupuncture for menopausal symptoms, my night sweats and hot flashes have stopped and I feel less stressed and anxious. Simone is an empathetic listener and all my treatments have been excellent. Acupuncture has given me new treatment options and has improved my life. Thanks
Simone has treated me for several years now and she has always been professional, caring and supremely insightful and intelligent in her analysis of medical conditions. As an acupuncturist I cannot rate her highly enough. When I first sought her help, I was exhausted and suffered from many minor ailments, many of them brought on by stress. Each session had a powerful alleviating effect, and she not only treated the symptoms but enabled me to understand the causes of my illness. These treatments, transformative and sustaining, came with additional beneficial nutritional and life-style guidance. I unreservedly recommend Simone: she is highly trained (and continues to develop her practice), is professional and always puts the client first. And the results are phenomenal!
Over a period of time following having COVID I noted a deterioration in health which resulted in my health declining so much that I was having great difficulty in doing every day tasks, I couldn’t go to work and I began having difficulty in speaking.
I am now five months into treatment and guidance from Simone and feel so very much better. In fact I am beginning to feel better than I have done for as long as I can remember.
Simone has been incredible in discovering where the problems have originated and how to best deal with these issues. She has a holistic approach to her service. Simone is down to earth, approachable and totally committed to trying to find solutions to problems. She is easily accessible in between appointments.
I have had to commit to lifestyle changes, but if these have not worked for me, Simone has been able to provide other options to try, ensuring a very personalised service.
I consider that Simone has pathed the way for not only good health, but a huge improvement in my quality of life also. I cannot recommend her service strongly enough!
My son and I can highly recommend Simone .My son has multiple and complicated health issues . Since receiving treatment he is off antibiotics and his overall health and well being has greatly improved .He trusts and listens to Simone and feels more positive about life . It is a journey we are on together to try to improve his condition and with her expertise and kindness we will achieve this . Anyone who feels nothing can be done to alleviate a long term health problem , would benefit from Simones assessment and knowledge .All your thoughts about your condition will be listened to (and not dismissed because you’re not a professional ) because it’s your body ! We look forward to continuing to work with her and wish her well in her business
