Robin Anthony McKenzie was born in Auckland in 1931. He was educated at Wairarapa College, spent his student years at Otago University, and graduated from the New Zealand School of Physiotherapy in Dunedin in 1952. In 1953, he started a private practice in Wellington, and it was here that he developed a special interest in treating spinal disorders.

During his lifetime, his contributions to the understanding and treatment of spinal problems met with worldwide recognition. In addition, he received numerous awards from the medical and scientific communities from various countries. The validity of the theories he proposed are now supported with scientific evidence and the effectiveness of his treat
ments have been scientifically validated.
