Training, qualifications & experience
Allan started his career in manual therapies and soft tissue massage in 2002 when, having left the Army, he completed the Premier diploma in sports massage therapy and personal training. Subsequently Allan then went on to study in ultrasound, taping and strapping, gait analysis and myofascial release techniques. He ran a successful sports injury clinic at Southampton Solent University helping a range of people from varying sports with their injuries.
Allan then went on to work for Premier training as a lecturer in sports massage therapy. This he did for 3 years before leaving to set up working with David Robinson.
In the summer of 2009 Allan studied in equine massage and now sees and applies his massage techniques to a variety of different horses that have musculo-skeletal issues.
In June 2012 Allan completed a 5 year degree programme in Osteopathy and a further course in dry needling. With these skills and his previous nine years experience of manual therapies Allan offers a range of Osteopathic and sports massage based approaches to help his patients with the management of their musculo-skeletal complaints.
David graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 2005 and over the last seven years has treated patients from all walks of life, from those suffering paralysing disabilities, to Olympic athletes. Ages of patients under his care also range from new born babies aged only 3 weeks old, to the elderly in their nineties.
As an active sportsman, David pursued a career in osteopathy following a serious knee injury during a county game of rugby. The rehabilitation he received is one of his key inspirations, providing treatment to others and getting them back to their desired level of fitness and wellbeing.
His continued interest and love of sport has seen him work on a number of events, including the British Judo championships, Sussex netball matches and cycling tours abroad. David also treated athletes from ‘On Camp with Kelly Holmes’ a scheme where runners receive direct mentoring from the Olympic gold medallist.
Since graduating David has continued to develop his skills in specialist areas. He is qualified in medical acupuncture, sports massage and rehabilitation, which he incorporates into individual treatments when necessary. He has now also begun studying musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound.
