David is extremely knowledgeable in his field. I’ve already seen results from the work he’s done on me, and as a marathon runner, this is so important. He cares about the well-being of his clients, and is committed to improving their quality of life. He’s friendly and professional, and I recommend him to all of my friends and colleagues.

Increased Speed & Performance
After a career of deskwork plus poor posture, I experience occasional pain and discomfort in my neck, shoulders, and back. I have been seeing David weekly for several months and plan to continue indefinitely. I always feel better after a session and am making progress on posture issues with his guidance. I’m 82.
Currently, I am training for the Seagull Century, a one-day100-mile bike ride. My training involves varying rides: hill climbing, wind sprints, long distance (over 50 miles). It is important for me to improve condition without injuring my body. My weekly sessions iron out the stresses I incur and keep me pedaling 6 days a week. It helps that he is a cyclist, too.
I am constantly amazed at David’s diagnostic ability. For instance, when I bought my new bike, I noticed that on the upstroke my left knee occasionally grazed my left hand. Naturally, I assumed the handlebars were out of adjustment. Not so. My left knee wobbled to the outside on the upstroke. I began teaching it to stay straight. My concentration rarely lasted a minute.
A day after David worked especially vigorously on my legs, I rode my bike. As I crested a hill and began sprinting, I looked down and noticed that both knees were staying in line with my feet. My pistons were pounding away. Whatever David released in one session, improved my pedaling enormously. Even my average speed has increased!

This is the real deal.
She knew what she was doing.
Staff is VERY skilled.
And, most importantly, the staff are VERY skilled. Michael seemed very knowledgeable in helping to treat some chronic nerve and muscle pain that I haven't been able to tackle through physical therapy or other massage in past year. I'll come back!
My neck hasn’t had this range of motion since I was 10 years old.
Life changing massage
David is a miracle worker!
Great therapeutic message, professional
Feel Like a New Person
I became pregnant this year, and I've found the experience incredibly uncomfortable, so I scheduled an appointment with Shiho for a prenatal massage. This was one of the BEST decisions I have made. My body was immediately more comfortable, and the effects lasted for about 14 days. I am really looking forward to my next prenatal massage with Shiho. I think with her help, I can be a much less miserable pregnant lady.

Great for Medical Massages too!
He’s absolutely the real deal.
David was recommended by my Pilates instructor a couple years ago and I've been going regularly ever since! Thanks to his magic hands, I'm able to work for myself as a handyman and elfa installer. He's absolutely the real deal.
(If I forget to book appts w/David far enough in advance, his staff is also great: I've had terrific massages from both Evana and Michael!)
I've been going to David for my neck and lower back pains for almost a year. I work at an office job so I'm crouching in front of the computer 24-7 resulting in what feels like a scrunched up neck and shoulders accompanied by frequent headaches/migraines. I've seen incredible results since - better posture, no more headaches from neck pain and better sleeps!
I recently injured my neck while skiing and thankfully David was able to fit me in last minute. The first session helped reduce the discomfort from the minor whiplash and after 2 sessions, the pain went away.
I highly recommend David and his staff. I've been to see Shiho and Laura a couple of times when David is booked up. They are also very good. David consistently gets booked up weeks in advance so recommend scheduling something early.
Simply amazing. 20 stars!

I will definitely be going back and would highly reccomend Bodyworks DW Advanced Massage Therapy for anyone looking to loosen up those tight muscles (back, neck, legs, arms, chest, etc.).
David examined me and created an entire plan within less than 5 minutes.
Anyone (especially dancers/athletes) in NYC that are experiencing body pain/discomfort I highly recommend visiting David!
Really targets and heals the pain points
A really advanced understanding of the body
