Meet The Recovery Lab Team
Caitlyn Mcaleese - Founder/ Owner of The Recovery Lab
Coming from a professional sporting background (my main successes were in throwing the Hammer for Scotland and Olympic Weightlifting) I have played all sorts of sports from hockey to tennis to waterskiing. Over the course of my sports career I have witnessed first hand how much sports therapy can help improve performance and reduce recovery time.
I loved the training, the daily grind of what sport brings. In hindsight it's only natural that I would go on to complete a BA (Hons) Sports Studies at Stirling University. In 2013 I started studying massage in the evenings and weekends at AMTS Massage School in Edinburgh. And that was it! Each year I've tried to progress and have since gained diplomas/ qualifications in Swedish, remedial and sports therapy. Fast Forward almost a decade and here we are with 3 Clinics across Fife. Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and St Andrews
We work closely with professional sportsmen and sportswomen, from commonwealth athletes, local sports clubs and Gyms. Not only sports, I have clients from a variety of backgrounds including the Royal Marines and the Army. It has been a great 7 years learning and gaining experience with a variety of clients.
My ethos is a PROACTIVE approach to RECOVER quicker, MAINTAIN condition and PREVENT injury.
This was spoken by a very famous All Blacks player, and as some of you know, New Zealand is in my blood. This is how we have built 3 clinics in a short space of time because we think and treat the same way one of the world class leading countries treat.

Teala McEwan - Physiotherapist
Teala is from Canada and grew up playing every sport she could, but football was always her number one. That lead Teala to study a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology before coming to the UK to complete a master’s degree in Physiotherapy. Teala has recently graduated and awaiting physiotherapy registration. In the mean time, and thereafter, she will be practicing sports massage / sports therapy.
"My practice is not limited to sport – I have an interest in chronic pain, neurological conditions, and hold qualifications in concussion and vestibular rehabilitation. I have a very patient-centred approach and consider you and you goals above anything else. Come see me at The Recovery Lab!!"
Emma Simpson - Sports Massage Therapist
Hi, I’m Emma, I am a Sports Massage Therapist working on Saturdays at the Kirkcaldy clinic.
I have always been interested in sports and also the science behind it. I have a degree in Biology which enhanced my interest in how the body works. I am passionate about helping people and ensure they are feeling their best so decided to study Sports Massage Therapy!
I have always loved a variety of different sports since a young age including swimming, dancing and karate. Now I enjoy attending CrossFit classes to keep myself active, my favourite part of CrossFit is the weightlifting! I also love to take long walks with my crazy Labrador Loki!
I hope to continue to grow my knowledge and experience in the future to ensure I am providing the best service to my clients.
