Born in Edinburgh, Robbie, the owner of north-55, studied at the University of Kent, England, where he obtained his BSc Hons in Sports Therapy. Robbie is passionate about his profession and the clients he treats. He believes in continual development and furthering himself daily. He believes that treatment should be dynamic, always changing and adapting with the most recent methods applied, with evidence of experienced clinical outcomes that show results.
Methods of treatment used by Robbie can include joint mobilization, spinal manipulation, soft tissue techniques, KT taping, IASTM (Instrument Assisted Mobilization), dry needling, and injury rehabilitation. Robbie opened North-55 while working alongside a five-star hotel within Edinburgh, providing treatments to many VIP guests, including A-list Hollywood celebrities.
