By far THE best training I've ever taken since graduating... and that was 28 years ago ;)

— Angelo Ioanides, New Zealand

DSD R1 Livestream was EXACTLY what I needed to improve my knowledge in how to use and propose a different way of global rehabilitation.

— Neda Nemati, France

I decided to do the Residency course of Christian Coachman and I really enjoyed the course but more than that I found it very exilarating and exiting and very extensive but also really appreciate all the effort that the team of Dr.Coachman put into the presentation of the course with all the extra videos and the necessary reading material close at hand. It was really a fantastic course and I would recommend it. Congratulations Dr.Coachman and your team

— Cobus Verster, South Africa

DSD Residency Livestream was one of the most well prepared and thorough programs I have ever followed. In these hard times that we have been facing, it was one of the most looked forward to evenings of the week. The whole support structure and presentation by Christiaan and fellow lecturers was first class. Will definitely change the future of my practice. Thanks for the amazing opportunity to attend the course.

— Johan Botha, South Africa

You have changed my life and I look forward to many more years of building relationships and challenging myself!

— Olesya Salathe, USA

This is a life-changing course for me. I enjoyed the journey so much and I know the journey with DSD is not over yet! Not in a long shot. Thanks again and am looking forward to our teamwork!
