Simeon Niel-Asher has studied and worked with trigger points since 1990, dedicating a large part of his career to scientific research, medical trials, and the exploration in the field of manual medicine. In 1992, he received his BSc (Ost) from the British School of Osteopathy and has been named one of the top ten Osteopaths in London by the Evening Standard. After inventing the Niel-Asher technique (TNAT) in 1997, he has taught courses on trigger point therapy throughout North and South America, Europe and the Middle East. More than 80,000 practitioners use his ground-breaking non-surgical approach for treating frozen shoulder syndrome, TNAT, worldwide. His other books include Treat Your Own Frozen Shoulder, which won him the 2006 CAM award for outstanding practice, and The Concise Book of Trigger Points (Third Edition), a bestseller for North Atlantic Books.
