Rob Date - After a thirteen year career in the Army as a helicopter technician which included being a part of the Army cycling team, Rob trained as a Sports & Remedial Therapist. He has worked for over eighteen years building a successful clinic based on effective treatment and client care. Most of his clients come from word-of-mouth recommendations which is proof of his success. Rob has competed as a cyclist, run the Cardiff marathon and had a 'go' at triathlon and adventure racing. He has a passion for cycling and running bio-mechanics which has led to him setting up a specialised clinic unique to the South West.
Rob treats sports and non-sports people of all ages including children (with parental attendance) and is registered with the Government's Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. He is accepted by various health insurance companies (see CNHC website for details).
Rob has recently trained in advanced Neuromuscular Therapy techniques at Kings College, London which will greatly enhance the treatments on offer, in particular for chronic pain sufferers. This included the use of dry needles in the treatment of spasm and trigger points.
Rob is currently studying back care with Gary Ward of Anatomy in Motion with a view to combining all his experience to provide a comprehensive treatment to back and joint issues.
Rob is also under-taking his own clinically led research into the role of the psoas in pain and dysfunction.
