My name is Dale McAllister. I am a native Calgarian, one of a few remaining! I’ve had the privilege of being married to my sweet heart Barbie for soon to be 36 years. We have 4 grown children and with that we’ll soon have 9 grand children. 8 boys and one girl! She is the oldest and isn’t too pleased about not having any girl cousins to play with. Maybe a baseball team in the near future!
I retired as a Captain from the Calgary Fire Dept in 2012. During my time with CFD I received extra training as a fitness trainer, EMR and dive rescue specialist. While on the CFD I became a certified massage therapist which I have been doing for over 30 years on a part time and full time basis.
My specialty in massage treatment is deep tissue but I can be soft when needed and requested. I have taken sports massages courses and have been told I give fabulous reflexology treatments. I recently got certified in aroma touch technique which uses 8 different essential oils on the back, head and feet. I feel working on the soft tissues of the body is a marvellous complement to Chiropractic work. Fitness, nutrition, health and wellness are my passion. I read and study everything I can to stay current and knowledgable in all these areas so I can give my clients the best possible care. I enjoy helping people achieve their personal health and fitness goals so they can maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Physical wellness and longevity brings a fuller life.
I am an avid runner and cyclist. I have run 21 marathons up to date with 2 more this year. So to you runners out there, I have experience and knowledge with many injuries. I am not sure which I like best road or mountain biking as I enjoy them both. The most interesting mountain bike race I have accomplished was the Trans Rockies in ’07 and ’08. It was a 7 day intensive race in BC and Alberta.
In my life I have felt the mountains have been calling me and feel I need to be in them at least once a week so I hike, climb, camp, snowshoe, backcountry ski and of course mountain bike.
I look forward to working with Dr. DJ and team and offering all I can through massage therapy. I want to relive your pain, reduce your injury recovery, relax your muscles and help you feel healthy, strong and full of Vim, Vigor, and Vitality!
