Being a keen sportsman from a young age, Rob experienced and witnessed many sport-related injuries. It was because of this that Rob developed a keen interest in health and went on to pursue a career in Osteopathy.
Rob has a four-year Master of Osteopathy (M.Ost) degree with distinction from the British School of Osteopathy in London (England). After some time experiencing what Osteopathy can do for people, Rob felt inspired to become a clinical teacher. He spent time teaching in two specialist osteopathic HIV/AIDS clinics linked to the British School of Osteopathy, one of which is based at the Royal Free Hospital in London.
Rob has a strong sports background with a long history of playing soccer as well as playing squash at International level for Luxembourg. Prior to his Osteopathic studies, Rob completed a Sport and Exercise Science (BSc) degree from Loughborough University (England) and is also trained in Kinesio Taping.
Rob is well travelled and loves meeting new people. He has worked in England, Canada, Ethiopia and Nepal. This has included work experience in a variety of environments including private, community, voluntary, teaching and multi-disciplinary clinics. Rob has therefore had experience with a huge variety of people and conditions.
Rob’s main goal is to help people to minimize pain and maximize their quality of life. He will always take a medical history and will take time to hear your perspective. This is followed by a thorough assessment of the musculoskeletal system and other system examinations where necessary (e.g. neurological testing, blood pressure). These stages are important for selecting the best possible treatment. If necessary, he will advise towards further suitable care.
Rob’s treatment includes a variety of manual therapy techniques such as gentle joint movement, deep tissue release, a variety of stretching and soft tissue release. These aim to promote body healing processes and/or appropriate adaptation. Rob believes in tailoring treatment to the individual and wants to help people to understand their issue and self-management strategies.
