This brief post is to ask all who visit it to have in their prayers and thoughts the final days of a great man, David Simons

A message from his family and carers has been widely disseminated, asking for our thoughts to be with him and his family as he nears the end of his life

To be sure, David’s life has been remarkable – ranging from his airforce days when he became one of the first men in space (see photo of him on cover of Life Magazine above, 1957) – to his decades of research and writing on the theme of myofascial pain.
And all those associated with manual medicine owe him a profound debt of gratitude.
Now is not the time for expanding on this theme, there will be time enough for tributes and memories later.

For now – please hold him in your thoughts and wish him well in what he has termed “the next adventure”

Travel safely David
