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.

Reviews

"Dr. McClure and the staff at NIHA are the best. I broke a tooth 2 days before leaving on vacation but they got me in and fixed the tooth beautifully." July 2014
T.N.
"The office environment is conducive to relaxing you before you have your visit. I never feel anxious when coming for an appointment." 9/3/13
Y.W.
"I have been a patient of Dr. Rind for over 12 years. He is smart, innovative, kind and caring. I have learned so much from him over the years."
C.N.
"Hi Scott, I'm providing you a follow-up on the results of the first Erchonia Laser treatment. Well I am happy to say it’s working – more than just working, the results are absolutely remarkable! At first I thought it wasn’t going to help at all. I started to feel really lousy after leaving your office. When I got home around 7:30PM, I immediately went to bed (which is highly usual for me). I slept miserably – I felt feverish all night, the cup of my left heel was hot (where I have the scar from the tendon surgery) and I was experiencing sharp and dull pains on the right side of my body from mid-calf to shoulder. It was so uncomfortable I got up out of bed @ about 1:00AM and did not return to bed until around 3:30AM. I thought it must be the laser treatment and questioned what I had done to myself. When I awoke on Friday morning at 5:45AM - my usual time to get ready for work; something felt really different in my knees. The pain in my left knee was barely noticeable except for around the edges of the areas I had been complaining about; and in my right knee the pinching sensation from the torn meniscus was gone. That day I was able to walk up and down stairs with very little pain. Rising from a sitting position was also less difficult. Since Friday, my condition has only gotten better. I can walk up and down stairs without caution and any really bothersome pain. And rising from a sitting position is also much better. I don’t how long the treatment(s) are supposed to last, but I am really interested in developing a long-term treatment plan that will encompass traditional medicine, laser, prolotheraphy and possibly PRP."
A.J.
"Sharon Roulhac's care and concern for my overall health & well-being is what differentiates her from other colon hydrotherapists."
J.S
"NIHA is a great holistic medical practice."
D.M.L.
"Truly integrated - Dr. Coy thought I would benefit from acupuncture and traded appointments with Nic Buscemi, the acupuncturist. Amazing!"
K.S.W.
"I finally have hope to get my life back from Lyme disease."
D.T.
With Dr.Kannankeril,"I felt listened to and comfortable talking about my concerns."
T.S.S.
This was the only place that finally figured out what was wrong with me for most of my 30's (Lyme Disease). I had been to so many doctors and they all said it was in my head. Dr. Rind figured out I had Lyme and my whole life has changed since then. T.D. 5/23/13
