A huge thank you to our clients for the following testimonials.
"Robert saved my life! I had had a frozen shoulder for 2 years which was not getting any better despite specialists, cortizone injections, physiotherapy, osteopathy and input from other health professionals. I had to give up my job teaching singing as I could not play the piano. It was not funny. The implication was that I was going to have to just accept a level of disability. Robert worked on the injury with patience and determination and at last, step by step, it eased. I have had lots of deep tissue and sports massage and in my opinion Robert is gifted. You can almost hear him listening to your body using his training, knowledge and his intuition to address difficulties. I cannot recommend him highly enough. "

"I’ve been seeing Jen mainly for deep tissue massage since 2010, for a variety of back and shoulder problems. Every time I see her, she really focuses on what’s been bothering me most since my last visit and thinks creatively about the best way to tackle it, whether that means paying lots of attention to a particular area or treating me more holistically. After I see her, I always feel that my shoulders and back are more supple, and that the damage that my two small children are doing to my back is being undone by Jen’s fingers! Jen is also a joy to see – positive, engaging and a great person to spend an hour with!"

"Robert has been looking after me whilst training for the London Marathon and also after a lot of other long distant runs, for the last two years. After each massage session my legs and feet feel relaxed and any pain is virtually gone. Soon after Robert introduced me to this treatment I experienced a huge difference in my running style as my strides and running pace were improved, my muscles were strengthened and my confidence was hugely boosted.
After every session I feel as if I acquire a "new and fresh" pair of legs. Robert's method combines sports massage and aromatherapy essential oils (and his outstanding taste in music!). It works for me perfectly as this combination keeps my muscles free from injury, enabling me to train harder, hence improving my performance constantly and most importantly enjoying more of running. Thank you Robert!"

"Please also pass on my most grateful thanks to Robert. Even though his treatment was extremely painful,3 days after, I was able to walk pain free for hours at a stretch and survived the book fair in Bologna. I think that just hearing from Robert that it was not my spine, was a huge relief for me. I arrived back in Sydney and some of the pain resurfaced, however with less intensity. I had a session with my Physiotherapist and she concurred with Robert - it is a real shame that I am not able to have follow up treatments with Robert. I believe that alternative therapies most certainly help in the healing process. Thank you once again."

"I have had terrible problems with my knee. Not only was it painful to walk or stand, it was also unsightly as the knee was very swollen and twice as big as the other knee. I had been going to the physiotherapist on a weekly basis for a year. Although it gave some relief my knee remained swollen and sensitive. When I went to see Robert, he carefully looked in the way I walked. He worked on the muscles and tendons surrounding my knee and recommended certain shoes which would correct my walking gait. He was absolutely right, within two weeks the swelling in my knee went down and my knee problems have completely disappeared"

"Having been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder I was prescribed painkillers and was told I could have cortisone injections and could possibly face an operation with no guarantee of complete recovery. Instead I chose to try treatment at Integrated Body Dynamics on a friend’s recommendation. Robert Donkers’ course of 3-weekly treatments has restored the range of movements to almost it’s full range and I am completely without pain. The treatment itself was far from a relaxing massage but carried out in such a way that the time passed quickly and, although I was aware of it the following day, I was already aware that I had better movement after the first couple of sessions."

"After visiting several different practitioners including medical doctors and physiotherapists I finally came across Robert. Not only is he extremely capable, he is also passionate and knowledgeable - a combination that is difficult to find. Robert also has a holistic approach to solving injuries; he doesn't just parrot what he's read in a text book. In terms of massage - his fingers have the power of a small herd of elephants, great for digging down in those hard to reach places. I have referred friends and family and they have all been pleased. Thoroughly recommended."

"After having a lay off from running for almost 2 months, MRI scan, 2 ultrasounds, and visits to various consultants, it took Joy less than one session to get to the root cause of my hip problem, and set me straight again (literally). A few further sessions has enabled me to pick up my distance running, and I am feeling confident of completing my London Marathon goal. Thank you Joy for making this dream come alive again. Highly recommended."
