What My Athletes Say

Few therapists are as knowledgeable and genuine as Dave is. Since I was a teenager, I have played competitive sports and massage therapy was never something I looked forward to. His method is refreshing–targeted, deep, and also sensitive to the recovery process. I highly recommend Dave to other athletes and anyone who has yet to experience his talented hands.-Yusef

David is an excellent masseur; I work out alot and have many knots in my back/glutes.. David gets in very deep but he has amazing technique. He slowly works deeper and deeper so that you can relax the muscles. I cannot tell you how good he is.. go see him!-Tom

I recently stressed my leg muscles doing some relatively simple yardwork (at age 46). Within three days I began experiencing painful sciatic nerve symptoms. Took ibuprofen and sought help for my condition from an acupuncturist. The results were helpful, but not what I had hoped for. After two and a half weeks I considered going to a chiropractor, but was worried that such treatment would be too aggressive and my aging body may end up getting hurt rather than helped - I was worried. Then I thought of massage as the right direction for relief, which led me to The Athlete's Therapeutic Massage. David was able to see me the same day I contacted him. I told him what happened and where my pain was and he explained what the likely course of events was which led to my lower back pain. I didn't really understand how overworking my dominant quad would cause sciatic nerve pain, but he explained how the muscles in my body are connected and work as a whole, and how working one muscle would affect a muscle in an entirely different region of my body. Then he began the therapy work I needed. I must say, of all the massage work I have ever had, this session was the only one where proper attention to help my body heal was being performed; it wasn't simply a massage. It was clear that the process and progression to massage my muscles which David employed was what I needed. After an hour I could stand in one place without the slow intensifying pain which I had previously experienced. In short, from this single session, it was very clear to me that David is a knowledgeable, well educated massage therapist that I can trust. I will be returning for more massage therapy.-Dan Fusco

I’ve have been going to Dave for deep tissue massage for a few months and love it, then finally convinced my varsity baseball son to go too a few weeks ago. Two massages before two games and the boy has batted .1000 each game, one game with back to back home runs! His swing looks so much better after getting worked on by Dave! It’s magic!-Jay Libby
