Commando Health & Fitness Services
Sports Therapy is all about treating musculoskeletal injuries, whether you are an sports person or not makes no difference. Andrew is qualified in Sports Massage, Dry Needling, IASTM and Spinal Manipulations. Sports Massage is an extremely effective treatment for a variety of injuries and body issues and even if you have no injuries at all and just want to improve your performance on the sports pitch or your state of mind and body. Regular massage:
- helps promote better posture
- increases muscular recovery due to the increase of blood flow to the muscles
- increases your range of movement and flexibility
- increases muscle tone can also be achieved through the use of tapotement treatments
- helps muscular relaxation
- reduces stress and anxiety due to all of the above reactions
- helps promote an all-around healthier mind and body.
Everybody can benefit from Sports Massage and maintaining a regular pattern at least every 6 weeks will enable you to really feel the benefits of this fantastic treatment. It is used by every major sports team and athlete and is a real asset in any training programme or daily life.

If you are planning or running an event this massage service can be booked to increase the profile of the event even further, whether it is a triathlon, running race, swim gala, powerlifting competition or cross fit event (see price page for booking information).
If you have suffered an injury and are looking to get back to full fitness, then book in for a block of PT sessions and Massage that will build you back up and help make you more resilient to injury.
Gait analysis is a fantastic way of delving into your running style allowing us to get to the bottom of injuries and sources of inefficiency when running. Not only will you be video assessed on a treadmill, but I will also put you through full “run specific” strength testing. This will allow us to identify any potential weaknesses that could be improved through gait re-training or by implementing a strength plan.

Tailored Pre-Armed Forces and public service fitness plans
As a former Royal Marines PTI I have worked with all of the other forces, especially the Army and Navy. I have an in-depth knowledge of the standards required of potential Recruits and Trainees and I still have a close link and work with many of the Armed Forces training establishments.
Whether you are looking to join the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force or the Royal Marines your programme will be specifically tailored to you and the tests you will encounter in training. There will be plenty of inside tips on the Military and the sessions will build up to give you a good insight to the world of the Armed Forces. If you are looking to join the Police or Fire Service programmes can also be tailored to ensure you success with the physical aspects of the respective joining processes.
