'Right from the first session, I knew I was in great hands'
"As an Olympic athlete, I have spent lots of time on treatment tables and working with therapists - so I know, what works, and what doesn't and how important it is to find an expert who really understands your individual needs.
DR Christoph Datler is outstanding and I felt he could read my body like a book while paying attention to every little detail we discussed during the initial consultation. The atmosphere was really professional and welcoming: I felt at ease and relaxed during the whole assessment and treatment. Right from our first session, I knew I was in great hands - literally.
I also saw Christoph during my pregnancy for some lower back and pelvic pain I had developed as a result of the postural stresses placed on my growing body. His treatment was very skilful and Christoph perfectly adapted specific core stability exercises to my changing requirements. I felt so much better after, and was reassured I could continue with my physically active pregnancy.
The range of techniques like spinal manipulations and the wealth of knowledge Christoph has about how our bodies and mind work, is really impressive, and I always leave the treatment room inspired, motivated, and with a 'new' body!"
Shauna Mullin competed numerous times for the Scottish National Volleyball team and also represented Team GB at the Wold Championships 2011 as well as the London 2012 Olympic Games. Shauna Mullin and Zara Dampney were the first British team to compete in Olympic Beach Volleyball since 1996. Congratulations to all their success in their sporting career!
'Christoph takes the time to fully understand my imbalances and pains - he never fails to pin down the source and treat the root cause of these problems'
"As a professional dancer in the ensemble of The Lion King Musical in London's West End, I need my body to be fully in tune. The daily rehearsals as well as the acrobatic dancing while performing on stage really put an immense strain through my spine, joints and muscles. Whenever I feel imbalanced and my performance is not at its best, I can trust Christoph to get me back on track: he takes the time and thoroughness to fully understand my imbalances and pains, and never fails to pin down the source and treat the root cause of these problems.
I have also consulted Christoph for a shoulder injury earlier this year, which he rapidly assessed, explained the diagnosis and came up with a comprehensive treatment plan including osteopathic treatment, kinesiotaping, exercise modification, medical acupuncture and sports massage - I am convinced I would not have been able to recover that quickly and fully without his help.
It is amazing how accurate his understanding of my body is. Within a session, Christoph gets a better understanding of how my body works than me during my life-long career as a dancer. He always finds the sweet spots that really need attention and has kept me at the top of my game and injury free since!"
Originally from Brazil, Francisco Lins was trained in classical ballet and ballroom and always had the ambition to tread the boards on one of the big stages of the world. His hard work took him to London's West End, where he wows the audience with his athleticism and on point dance moves in Disney's The Lion King since 2011. The musical has since been awarded most successful production of all times. We wish him many more spectacular performances to come and are proud to work with such a talented dancer.
'Christoph's treatment to relieve my symptoms as well as the specific exercises and stretches to keep my spine mobile and build a strong muscular support, have really changed the way I hold my body in every day life'
For a long time I have struggled with painful tension and stiffness around my neck and shoulder, but could never pinpoint exactly where or what that pain was. Christoph not only made me feel better quickly within a couple of sessions, but also helped me to become aware of all the factors contributing to and causing my issue in the first place - from mobility restrictions in my mid spine caused by sitting at an office desk that was not adjusted to my height, my habitual hunched over posture putting excess strain through my neck, the lack of postural awareness during my gym workouts, my unconventional sleeping position with pillows that were way too high and my tendency to tense up my muscles and only use my upper chest for breathing when getting stressed, etc...... He had it all covered!
Christoph's treatment to relieve my symptoms, as well as the specific exercises and stretches to keep my spine mobile and build a strong muscular support, has really changed the way I hold my body in every day life. I have never looked back and have recommended him to many of my friends and co-workers since who were equally impressed by his expertise and effective hands-on treatment.
