He enjoys holding workshops that transform the traditional human-anatomy lecture into a fun, hands-on way to discover how the human body works.
He uses his teaching experience to meet the unique needs and learning style of each of his clients in a personalized way. He also strives to find the unexpected solution when business as usual isn’t solving the problem.
Robert takes special interest in addressing orthopedic conditions.

What he offers in treatment includes not only facilitation of recovery but also teaching his patients to manage their symptoms on their own in a sustained way to prevent future injury. Robert utilizes an evidence-based approach with a combination of hands-on therapy and exercise to address his patients’ needs.
In his free time, Robert likes to cook and bake, spend time with family and friends. He also loves to engage in all kinds of physical activity, especially hand balancing, acrobatics, and hiking.
