massage therapyRobert White  L.M.T., D.I.M.

 

Robert's philosophy: "Your body is on loan to you. Take care of it."


Robert White has been practicing massage and bodywork for over 35 years. He first was introduced to touch therapy by his mother who often advised him to “rub it” after minor bumps, and childhood experiences with cramps. Robert graduated from the prestigious Potomac Massage Training Institute in 2006 where he received his certification in massage therapy. In 2007 he attended the University of Medical and Dental School of New Jersey where he received his certification in orthopedic massage through the Institute for Integrated Massage, in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey. Robert soon joined the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine in Washington, D.C. where he was able to master his skill. In 2011 he received a certification in myoskeletal alignment, one of the industry's advance modalities of bodywork which uses the principles of osteopathy and rolfing to create an effective non-impact, low force soft tissue work. Robert later received his doctorate of integrated massotherapy from the First National University of Therapeutics in Nashville, Tennessee. He has been shaping his practice around functional medicine as it relates to the musculoskeletal system. Robert also performs several assessments such as postural analysis, functional assessment, and natural health exams.
