About Richard Gassert
Richard Gassert DCDoctor of Chiropractic
Originally from Cape Town, Richard has been settled in the UK for more than 20 years.
He arrived in Scotland in 2000, having graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC), Bournemouth following 5 years’ full-time study. After working as an associate chiropractor in well-established practices in Melrose, Scottish Borders and Haymarket, Edinburgh; he set up the Bruntsfield Chiropractic Clinic in 2010.
As a natural athlete (relatively proficient at many sports); studying chiropractic has enabled him to combine his interest in physical fitness with an in-depth knowledge of how the body self-heals and functions best and use this to make a difference to his patients.
I am 86, had a spine graft (bone from leg to spine) when I was 16 and ever since have needed a good man to keep my back working, always going to those with the highest reputation. Over the seventy years I have had many of them, moves either by me or them giving an average ‘life’ of about 5 years. I have now been with Richard for six years and do hope he will see me out. He is in my mind without doubt the best I have come across.
His techniques are less invasive than most, no frightening moments or wrenches, he always seems to find the current problem and his hands are reassuring, highly competent and always seem to find the points where attention is needed and gently correct whatever is wrong. My back has suffered from the strain on the rest of it of having four vertebrae solidly locked together and after 70 years the strains are beginning to tell. Richard has not only managed to keep everything working and in place he has managed to make my back much stronger and more reliable than I had thought possible. He has a holistic approach to health that recognises the benefits of other alternative therapies and thanks to him I am certainly enjoying .....
Richard truly possesses a rich gift. His ability to diagnose a problem and his exceptional knowledge of the body ensures his healing hands deliver long lasting results.
He has has treated and healed my back both when I have had acute back ache and he also does maintenance on my back. I have no idea how I would maintain good back health without Richard. A must for anyone who cares about their health!
I highly recommend Bruntsfield Chiropractic Clinic. I have been a regular patient of Richard’s and have had amazing pain relief as a result of various problems through the gentle and precise adjustments to re-alignm my bones.
A professional and friendly service!
