About Us

The Happy Body offers a range of treatments for the management and relief of all muscular and nerve pain.
We employ a variety of techniques from different disciplines including Osteopathy, Chiropractic and Physiotherapy, sports medicine and biomechanics.

Who’s It For?

We most commonly treat neck, back and hip pain but also resolve other areas of the body.
THB practices an array of  techniques reducing or stopping painful symptoms, with amazing longer lasting results.

Why THB?

Ultimately, my goal is to help you change the way you use your body by initially creating an awareness of the things you are doing incorrectly and restoring  proper function of bio-mechanics, reducing painful symptoms with longer lasting results!

Our aim is to provide you with tools necessary to move/exercise in ways that create pain free movement, so you can ultimately manage yourself without having regular treatments by health care professionals.

Robert has fixed issues in my body with long lasting results, that no practitioner has been able to achieve in 20 years. He thinks holistically rather than myopically and leaves you with skills to stay strong and healthy rather than having to reply on his services to feel good. Incredible man, would recommend his services to every one

I highly recommend Robert to anyone with physical pain. He brings a wealth of knowledge to each treatment. He's obviously passionate about his work and really cares about giving his patient a positive outcome.

My hobby is sprinting in masters athletics, but recently I could not enjoy my love due to a left knee injury. I had gone to many other therapists to solve this problem but with no luck. Fortunately for me I was introduced to Robert via my partner and now I am glad to say I am running freely and improving my techniques in sprinting due his treatments. I highly recommend his services to anyone who values their body!

Robert changed my life. I am not spinning a story. I needed assistance everyday and was in and out of wheelchairs and rehabilitation for the past 3 years . One session with Robert had my pain 60% better. I was unable to walk with stability and could not walk up or down stairs, I had to crawl and it was extremely painful and left me crying, just to do stairs. Anway after 1 session I walked slowly up stairs and felt strong for the first time in 3 years. I've had 6 sessions in total and my pain is now 80%less. His different methods really work. His very skilled at his job and very dedicated. He really listened to me. I am living a life that has me moving and exercising and have reduced my pain medication significantly, all due to Robert

Robert is very knowledgeable, professional and helpful in assessing and treating the cause of my injury when i strained my hip in Netball a few days before. I walked in his clinic with very limited movement in my right hip where I had to use my hand to raise my leg to step up on a step. immediately after one treatment I was able to raise the leg up to hip level without assistance and and go for a run a few days later without pain or discomfort.

Put simply, Rob is a genius and consummate professional in his craft. I was first recommended to see him a couple years ago and I have received outstanding results each time I have visited him. My girlfriend and I now live in Norway and we both come to see him when we're in Sydney as we know without doubt that he is the best in his field. If you're looking to make your body perform at its peak condition and have a clear understanding of whatever your ailment is, look no further!

Before I met Robert, I couldn't stand at a bar or go to a concert without out excruciating pain in my knees and hips. As a tennis coach I am standing alot, so the pain I was going through daily was career threatening! At this point standing is no longer an issue after only a month of seeing Robert! I am also able to do more athletic things such as dancing, walking comfortably, etc! I look forward to the following months as I have full trust Robert can get me back to where I want to be in the near future!

Rob not only helped me fix some long term imbalances in my body, he took the time to explain to me how everything works. He is a passionate, experienced and skilled therapist, and I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Rob

Robert is very knowledgeable. He is very hands on and gets to the root of the problem pretty quickly. I was holidaying in Australia so wasn't able to have more than one treatment but i certainly felt better and was able to continue my holiday more comfortably.

I have been suffering with pain in my back for a long time, and I had seen many doctors before, orthopedists, physiotherapists and chiropractors; none of those discovered the reason of my aches. In only one session Robert recognized that I was suffering from lack engagement in some of my leg muscles, what turn into overloading my lower back muscles. After seeing Robert I am much better, near 100%, with only two sessions.
