Dave Walker

Dave qualified as a Sports Therapist (Higher Diploma) in 1997, with experience of providing Sports Massage not just in a clinic setting but also at events ranging in diversity from the London Marathon to the Cerebral Palsy Games and more intimate events such as local 10k’s and triathlons etc. Treatments centre around Sports/Remedial massage combined with  other modalities such as myofascial release and various forms of stretching along with advice on self treatment i.e exercises/stretching to try and achieve a successful outcome. Alongside the physical treatment, Dave can also provide advice on the management/rehabilitation of sports related injuries.

Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S), in which the client gets to put in a little bit of effort (!) with a little guidance from Dave, often forms part of a Sports Massage session, this is also available  as a stand alone treatment. Alternatively if you just require a nice relaxation massage then Dave can provide that too.

Medical Acupuncture is now available with Dave, not to be confused with Chinese Acupuncture, Medical Acupuncture is solely for the treatment of muscular pain and can be used in conjunction with sports/remedial massage or as a stand alone treatment, for further information on this or if you have any queries regarding your needs or treatments you can contact Dave via Reception by e-mailing enquiries@pickaquoy.com.

Gail McAndrew

Gail began her massage journey in 2000 with a Diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy and since then has gone on to gain qualifications in a number of complementary massage therapies including reflexology, sports and hot stone massage.  Having worked from Napiers Herbal Healthcare in Edinburgh until 2011, Gail then returned to full-time study and began to focus on the provision of massage at sporting and leisure events as well as within workplace-based settings.  She is trained in both therapeutic and remedial massage techniques which can be used either to address specific physical symptoms, or alternatively provide a luxurious treatment focused on pure relaxation.

Treatments with Gail will begin with a short consultation where the client will have an opportunity to discuss, in confidence, any existing health conditions, injuries or lifestyle concerns that they may have.  This will allow Gail to direct each individual treatment towards meeting the client’s needs using the most effective techniques possible.  In line with her personal ethos, Gail uses ethically-sourced, organic oils that are rich in nutrients and kind to your skin.
