"His knowledge, experience and humble approach leads to trust and results."

Robbie Smith

I am an Osteopath, medical acupuncturist and ergonomic consultant specialising in occupational injuries, both static and dynamic. I have been treating the ill effects of poor workplace behaviour, design, practice and implementation for over 16 years.

I initially trained as a zoologist specialising in human evolution and biomechanics with a special interest in how the body is designed to move, the impact that modern sedentary lifestyles and postures has on this and the resulting problems.

I bring a unique approach to help you recover from and prevent future occurrences of occupational or recreational pains and discomforts.  I will deal with your immediate symptoms, explore the cause of your condition and help you to find preventative measures for the future.

I provide manual handling training and risk assessments across Scotland and lecture on issues related to DSE and ergonomics.  This has given me the chance to affect the problems with poor working practices upfront.

As a practising Osteopath my detailed knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics and musculoskeletal health and my daily experience of how pain and injury occurs and how the body recovers allow me to advise and to train to a higher and more bespoke standard.  I am the only trainer affiliated to the Scottish Manual Handling Forum working in the private sector.  My unique method of delivering training is more up to date with current evidence than any other provider.

I have developed my own brand of Harmonic Release Theory that I teach to physical and movement therapists.  It is a specialised form of bodywork or exercise therapy designed to undo habitual tension patterns throughout the body.

My style is to empower you to become aware of your strain habits, why you have a pain or stiffness and reduce the effort of work (and life) to a minimum.

Like all osteopaths I am fully trained, insured and accepted by most health insurance providers.

I often work alongside other health care providers:

Daniel Heller - Strength and Conditioning Coach

Daniel is a strength and conditioning coach and lecturer at Bastyr University in Seattle.  During his time studying an MSc at Edinburgh University he worked and helped develop the harmonic release for personal trainers programme.  He continues to consult and helps to run the training courses at harmonic clinics.

Ollie Jessop - Personal Trainer

Ollie works in the gym along the corridor at G2G coaching.  We often work together for more exercise mined clients.

Matt Holland - Running coach

Matt is the only running school certified trainer in Scotland. He is in the next room to me at improvemyrunning.com  He specialises in exercise coaching for running technique to improve efficiency and reduce the effort of running.  His philosophies work well alongside mine.
