Was very different from a massage at the spa in a very good way. Dave knew how to work out knots all over my body that I didnâ€™t even know I had. Along with that he educated me on how to maintain good muscular health. Along with stretches specifically targeting my injuries.
There is no coincidence I found Dave during my holistic search for carpal tunnel, I had suffer for about 8 years due to poor body mechanics. On my first, I was very impress with Daveâ€™s bodywork and anatomy knowledge, over all, my body has never felt so relief from pain and I have very thankful and aware it is important to take care of yourself.
Dave fixed my muscle pain with one massage and taught me stretches to help prevent it from returning. Will be sending my husband to him next.
I went to see Dave after having ongoing issues with my anklle due to a stress fracture. I one session the pain significantly decreased and the tightness loosened. I highly recommend his services.
Iâ€™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! Itâ€™s magic!
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! !!!
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!
David is a miracle worker. I got more out of one session with David than I did with multiple chiropractor visits. Additionally, as a runner David has helped me tremendously in only a few sessions. I strongly recommend David! You won’t be disappointed!
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.
I would just like to give a shout out to Dave for his fantastic work. I have had my fair share of injuries from basketball to weightlifting and have not found anyone like Dave who can fix it. Dave took major hip pain away, and psoas pain away within one session each time. I had a major injury in the summer of 2014. 9 months still going with partial amount of it, my psoas pain (mentioned before) was gone in one session. We had thought it was a different part of my body but to our relief it was a surprise to how quick it was relieved. For the first time in 9 months, I could finally go to sleep without having any back pain, and able to wake up with no back pain. I'm 20 years old and understand that no one even close to my age "should not have that until they are a senior". He is an incredible massage therapist and would recommend him to any athlete who wants to elevate their results, gains, and relieve injuries.
Dave is amazing!!! I felt like a million dollars when I left. I went to see Dave with specific injuries and soreness, Not only did Dave listen to what I told him, he educated me on why these issues were occurring and what he would do to fix them. Dave is a great massage therapist and I would highly recommend him to any one who wants to move and feel better!
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!
Hello, i am a very busy electrologist and work long hours during the week, then a client of mine said ! Camille,why don't you try my therapist, he is like magic. so i put if off until i could not stand it, and called David, it was the best think i ever did for my self. he is not only a great magical therapist but also very funny and easy to talk to guy. he really listens to what your body is saying. i would highly recommend him to everyone.
After a week of debilitating back pain, I went to David for therapy. I was amazed that within about 15 minutes my pain was 80% relieved. I had one more treatment and 100% pain free. May not work for everyone that easily-but for me I'm impressed. I wish I had gone to him earlier.
David clearly understands how muscles work. He explained how each part of my body was working to build the tension I could feel. After only an hour my shoulders feel loose, my posture is improved, and I feel great!
I felt David really listened to me and really concentrated on the areas I needed most. Highly recommended!!
This was the best I've had. Excellent pressure. Great job!
David is amazing, hands down. As a healthcare professional that is on his feet everyday and moving heavy patients, my back takes quite a pounding. David is incredibly talented and takes the time to understand where your trouble spots are. He is knowledgable in what areas support those regions to give a complete, therapeutic massage that helps to revitalize sore and aching muscles. Absolutely one of my go-to therapists!
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!
What an amazing masseur. I’ve seen David in the past and am so glad to find him again. In the past he has given me advice as to how to stretch certain ways to help alleviate the pain. He is a miracle worker with muscle knots. He found knots I didn’t even realize I had. He explained why and how that happens. He worked out every knot he could find. I’ve felt like a million bucks since our session. I can’t wait to go back and see him again.
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.
