About Robin

Robin began his full-time obsession in 2002 and is a practitioner of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture having attained degrees from both the UK and China. Robin is registered and insured with the British Acupuncture Council, the Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture as well as the local councils in each of his branches.

Robin has volunteered for the Fountain Centre since 2008, a charity which offers complementary therapies to cancer patients and their carers based in the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford. Robin has also participated in various research studies including chronic pain in cancer patients, dry mouth following radiotherapy in head and neck cancers, correcting shoulder dysfunction in post-surgery oesophageal cancer patients, and relieving hot flushes associated with both prostate cancer and breast cancer. Robin thrives on continuing his studies to refine his treatment strategies to adapt to the individuality of his patient’s needs.

Robin has the experience to know when Chinese medicine can help, and when another therapy will support treatment or provide a faster solution.

you touch everything.”

Success Stories

Fertility Success Stories with Chinese Medicine

Fertility

My wife and I had been trying to conceive for years and we always assumed the timing wasn't right until I tested my semen and found out I had an extremely low sperm count and poor morphology. I started taking all the supplements you can imagine for 6 months which only mildly improved my profile. We needed something else which is when we found Robin - he gave me herbs to drink and a few lifestyle pointers. Just over 3 month's later I was feeling better than I've done in years and my wife got pregnant and went on to deliver our little princess.

Fertility Success Stories with Chinese Medicine

Fertility

We'd been trying to conceive naturally for over a year, my husband's sperm profile was relatively normal and I had 'unexplained infertility' and was being put on the waiting list for IVF. Within 3 months after seeing Robin for acupuncture and herbal medicine I became pregnant and we now have our little Jacob :o) Robin was understanding, patient and took a lot of the pressure off.

Success Stories of Pain Relief with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Pain

My back is pretty much pain free now and I am starting some careful exercise to strengthen it and start getting back into shape. My thumb and foot are getting better, slower than I would like but maybe I am impatient. Thank you for everything you did to help me. It all made a massive difference and was much appreciated. Good luck with everything and I am sure we will meet again soon.

Success Stories of Pain Relief with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Pain

Robin made an instant improvement in my shoulder (dislocated a week before) with lots more movement after just one session. Needless (or is it needle less?) to say I'm booked for another session soon. Highly recommended.

Graham 46, Wiltshire

Success Stories of Pain Relief with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Pain

On my G.P.’s recommendation, I sought acupuncture regarding a significant increase of migraines in frequency (up to 10 per month), intensity and duration. I was apprehensive about this treatment, not least because I suffer from blood and needle-phobia. Robin soon allayed my fears and concerns, however.

I have always felt respected and heard, and Robin is very clear (and patient!) in responding to my many questions and comments. I particularly appreciate the fact that we work as a team together, rather than me ‘being done to’…

I have now been completely clear of any migraine symptoms (and, therefore, any medication for such), for 11 months!!! I recommend Robin highly both in the service that he offers and the way in which he provides it.

Success Stories of Pain Relief with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Pain

My migraines and auras were cured in just two treatments using acupuncture alone! If you are suffering don't think twice about having acupuncture from.

Success Stories of Pain Relief with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Pain

I used to suffer up to 4 migraines a week and was taking Sumatriptan several times per week but the situation was just getting worse and worse. My GP eventually referred me for acupuncture with Robin - it's now been over a year that I've been migraine free - I've regained my life and would say to anyone suffering with migraines - just try acupuncture!

Robin cured my jaw grinding and more recently my terrible migraines within 5 visits. Cannot recommend Robin and his approach highly enough!

Paula MacArthur, Surrey

Success Stories of Hot Flushes & Gynaecology Relief

Gynaecology

I lead a busy life with a demanding job and when the hot flushes started I found that it interfered with my work, often causing me embarrassment and effecting my concentration. To make things worse, my sleep was being disturbed several times each night. Within two treatments my flushes had reduced and after two months had completely stopped. I’m now enjoying great sleep, my energy levels are back to normal and my work is better than ever. Robin really helped my life and I highly recommend anyone suffering with hot flushes to approach him for help.

Caroline, 49 London

Success Stories of Hot Flushes & Gynaecology Relief

Gynaecology

I'd been having 10+ hot flushes with terrible sweats everyday and throughout the night - I was exhausted but refused to go on HRT. Within 2 months of having acupuncture with Robin my hot flushes were mild at their worst with no sweats and maybe waking up once a night - he's my hero!

Success Stories of Improving Men's Health With Chinese Medicine

Men’s Health

They found traces of antibodies and blood in my semen which thankfully wasn’t related to cancer but did mean that we couldn’t conceive naturally and the doctors were recommending donor sperm which my wife and I weren’t keen on. Robin Burby worked some sort of magic and after 4 months my wife was pregnant. Legend!

Chris, 32 Guildford

Success Stories of Improving Men's Health With Chinese Medicine

Men’s Health

My sex drive had been low for years and my mood was pretty depressed, my wife said that she didn't mind and was very supportive but I knew that my relationship couldn't go on that way. My self-confidence was also dropping. Robin put me on a regime of acupuncture, mushroom supplements and herbal medicine and I swear I feel like I'm in my 20s again. I don't know how it works, but it does!

J 58, London

Success Stories of Cancer Support with the aid of Chinese Medicine

Cancer

I came to Robin in 2009 having been diagnosed with breast cancer I went on to suffer severely with side effects from the chemotherapy and Tamoxifen. The fatigue was also so bad I was barely able to leave the bed for two months, I couldn't even undertake simple tasks like having a bath without feeling stressed and exhausted. Within three months of seeing Robin and making some dietary changes I went from feeling the worst I had ever felt to feeling better than I had in years. I felt so good I even took up running which I couldn't have even imagined before and returned to enjoy a full and happy life. Robin was always extremely professional and kind and he put me at ease immediately. It was such a relief to finally find someone who understood how to complement my conventional treatment. I would highly recommend Robin and Chinese medicine to anyone. Out of everything I tried to help me get through cancer and recover Robin was certainly the best value for money and I will not hesitate to return to him should I need to.
