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.

Reviews

"Maureane O'Shaugnessy will be the person most instrumental during my healing journey."
B.B.
"Dr. Kannankeril listened well and made sense of what has been a complicated health situation- her manner was sensitive as well as professional & made me confident of her counsel."
R.R.P.
"Not only did I lose weight, but healed numerous health issues... Through her incredible guidance, Eve has opened my eyes to a whole new world in which we can actually control our overall physical and mental health through proper nutrition. I first signed up to take their course to lose weight, however they quickly taught me that with proper nutrition, not only can I lose those extra pounds, but also alter my eating habits to heal numerous health issues. I feel so empowered as am now personally in control of my health. They are remarkable and inspiring educators and I truly feel that her class has changed my life for the better."
M. B.
My husband lost 40 pounds! Last March, I attended the free nutrition demonstration that Eve Colantoni presented. I had to try the nutrition program. I had been looking for a venue that would address being healthier in a natural way. I even convinced my husband to attend too! We learned so much through the class. The information was practical and direct. We even developed tremendous camaraderie in the class with the other participants since we were all looking to take out health to the next level. We even signed up for the second class to continue the experience. My husband lost 40 pounds during the program following the advice. We both feel younger and look better. I have even shared some of the information with friends. They even drink green smoothies for breakfast now!! I highly recommend this class for anyone wanting to take control of their health and maybe turn back the hands on the clock a bit…or at least slow them down!"

"So educational and informative- Dr. Gant and Susan are very patient and kind and so very empowering. So thankful I found NIHA."

"Dr. Rind and Michael are top notch." July 2014

"This visit was unbelievable. Dr. K is patient, she listens intently, asks pertinent questions, and she CARES! I am so happy to have found this office." 10/14
S.B.
"Some confusion going from one staff member to another. But with Dr. Gant this was the most thorough exam and friendly staff I have seen to date about my illness, which includes the Mayo Clinic." 3/4/13
anonymous
"I can honestly say that in the short three months of working with Eve Colantoni, she has completely changed my life. I have progressed more working with Eve than I have in the ten plus years of working with doctors. She has taught me how to heal my body from years of medication, stress, and illness. I have lost 27 pounds, have the energy to exercise, and can think more clearly. Recently, for the first time I was actually able to relax while vacationing instead of focusing on food allergies and fatigue. Eve has given me a box of tools that allow me to LIVE life, not just endure life. I would recommend Eve to anyone who wants to feel better and wants to learn how to have the energy to enjoy life!"
T. M.
