Imran Alam

Imran has been working with professional footballers for almost 10 years. He has worked with Hamilton Accies FC, Falkirk FC, Queens Park FC and Glasgow Rangers FC. With a degree in Sport Science from the University of Glasgow and a Masters degree in Sport Injury Rehabilitation from Sheffield Hallam University, Imran has accumulated years of expertise and skill in providing first class injury diagnosis and rehabilitation using various methods such as massage and cupping. Currently he works as a senior physiologist with Nuffield Health in Glasgow and is also Head of Sports Science at Clyde Football Club where his responsibility is pre-season/post season fitness testing of players, sports massage and treating injured players.

Cupping, he feels, is a lost Prophetic tradition which has the potential to give excellent results for a number of ailments. He was fortunate to be taught the science and practical elements of cupping by one of the leading Hijamah therapists in the UK from Egypt, Walid Zamzam. He uses massage prior to cupping to increase blood flow to affected areas for the best results. Out with his work, Imran is a fully insured member of the Scottish Massage Therapists Organisation, the Royal Society of Public Health and the Football Medical Association.
