I went to Dave today with my oldest son, as we both have issues that weren't being helped by 1)my physical therapist and 2)his chiropractor. I cannot begin to explain how we both feel. I'm walking better now than I have in 2yrs. His expertise is not through the massage itself, but through what he educates you on after working on you. My son feels the exact same. Makes me happy to see him more comfortable. We just need to "let it go", lol.....in any event we're coming back of course. If you haven't been you really must go. As a mom, I'm very protective and knew in a heartbeat we came to the right place. Kudos to Dave on a job extremely well done! !!!-Kristen Fennelly
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
Dave was absolutely amazing. After getting back into working out regularly, my muscles began to tighten and become sore. Dave loosened all the tight areas and was very professional explaining why each muscle tightened up and how to stretch them in order to prevent straining them again. Highly recommend Dave! Thanks again!-Jay M.
Since being in Iraq, I have suffered from PTSD and no shrink has been able too do much for me. I ran a google search and found this website and David. During our first session, I had an emotional outburst that I couldn't control. David got me through it with understanding and compassion. His hands unlocked something and I feel as if I'm going to be normal again someday. Thank you David. My new best friend!-John G.
