Robert is an osteopath and naturopath, he graduated from the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy in 1991. Since then he has worked in a busy practice in Huddersfield for 5 years, before moving to Scotland in 1996 to set up the Good Health Centre.

He has contributed to two international text-books on back pain as well as winning the National Back Pain Association gold medal for original research. Robert has also written a number of magazine articles and newsletters on nutrition and herbal medicine.

As a member of the Spinal Research Unit of Huddersfield University, Robert has been involved in some of the latest research into back pain, the results of which have been published in peer reviewed scientific journals such as Spine.

In 2000, Robert completed a course on myo-facial acupuncture, for the treatment of musculo-skeletal injuries, which he has found to be a very useful adjunct to his osteopathic skills.

COVID-19 Update

Guidance from my professional body is that if you wish to continue with treatment you may, as per the following extract:

While there is light at the end of the tunnel, the new COVID variant has seen the country again plunged into national lockdowns and in the coming weeks, we will all have to live with even tougher social restrictions to reduce transmission.

The public health guidance for operating in community healthcare settings has not changed with the announcement of the national lockdowns.

As was the case in the previous national lockdowns, healthcare settings can continue to operate under COVID secure measures and people can leave home to seek care for their health as needed.

If you have any coronavirus symptoms:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss, or change to, your sense of smell or taste

Get a test and stay at home.
