“There is no one giant step that does it.
It’s a lot of little steps!”
I am Dave Cullen, Lead Therapist and founder of DC Massage Therapy. I am a Level 4 (VTCT) qualified massage therapist and avid sportsman.
Years of playing for numerous local football and rugby teams as well as competing individually in athletics and most recently triathlon events have given me my fair share of injuries and issues. I have run the London Marathon on 3 occasions with my most recent and personal best achievement being in 2015. It was during this time that I used massage as part of my training programme and was immediately hooked with how it made me feel, helped with my training and had so many physical and physiological benefits, too many to count.
I was so intrigued that soon after I took a huge step and left my career in industry to undertake my training at the home of English sporting education in Loughborough as well as furthering my education and knowledge at the renowned Pressure Point clinic in Arnold, Nottinghamshire. I now practice sports massage and other therapies across my home county and beyond.
“You are One Massage away from a good mood!”

Deep Tissue Massage
A treatment which uses many different techniques to assist in either in jury recovery, pre or post event maintenance or to work on any possible complaints or issues arising from day to day life. Each treatment is specifically tailored to the individuals needs and area of complaint or concern with a full assessment and consultation coming as standard as part of initial appointment.
So many injuries, aches and pains can come from something as simple as poor posture or a muscular imbalance. At DC massage we can offer a full postural assessment to look at any areas of potential weakness and/or imbalance and then offer potential treatment or advice which will assist in correcting or rehabilitating.
This can also be a great tool when taking part in a training programme or programme of exercise. Get in touch for more information.
Kinesiology Taping can be used to help support injured areas or limbs during the rehabilitation phase or if there is a specific area of weakness.
Many professional sportspeople use it during activities to support and also to assist in blood flow, avoid cramps and reduce pressure to allow optimal performance. We can offer and advise when this may be necessary and a good tool to use as part of training, competing or recovering from injury. Not just for sportspeople its extremely helpful in any circumstance.
