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!

Solved Problems No One Else Could!
David has crafted a hybrid set of techniques complex enough to actually deal with all the messy, mechanical things that happen to muscles and tendons when they are injured or healing improperly. Pat or generalized diagnoses are set aside, and these messy and particular circumstances become central to some very skilled detective work. Muscles are untangled. Movement is restored. Posture and bearing are adjusted. The work is relaxing and engaging, and it feels really great.
David has solved problems that no one else could solve for me and for every friend that I have recommended.

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.

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!)
Excellent massage experience
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!

Major Long-Lasting Improvements
It seems like just yesterday, but I had a session with you as a pre-wedding gift from my friends. Within one session, you made major, long lasting improvements in the issues that I was having. Since then, I have recommended you to ANYONE who talks to me about their significant muscle or body pain.
You Saved My Life!

You. Are. A.Maaaaaaaaaz.Ing.
Just in case you haven’t heard this enough . . . You. Are. A.Maaaaaaaaaz.Ing.
I can’t tell you how different everyday life is, I had no idea the extent of how generally uncomfortable I have been for quite some time now. I can move freely without random hitches and pops and pains. I didn’t even realize how many of my actions/inactions were dictated by trying to not feel/aggravate those hitches. I have felt like an old lady for awhile, and frustrated about it because, well, I’m not an old lady yet. The guy who manages my local grocery store wondered what had happened, the change in my carriage was so noticeable.
Anyway, THANK YOU!

Huge Huge Improvement!
David clearly knows what he is doing.
I haven't needed to take a pill since that night. After doing some more research , I looked into "Subluxated Vertebrae, the basics- some of those symptoms include leg length difference, weak ankles and raised pelvis…" I'm pretty sure you were dead on about my leg length difference and everything else. I am now virtually pain free, only some mild hip muscle discomfort in certain positions, which thanks to you feels much better
I'm not a doctor, but it all makes sense if you think about it. Just surprised with all the X-rays and MRIs none of my physicians recommended any massage and/or chiropractic therapy.
Anyhow, I'm likely canceling the surgery since there is no more pain. So far so good. I'd like to follow up with you as soon as i can.
Thank you for giving me real advice and results.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I've had migraines for years. After the worst and most debilitating one several months ago, I felt as though I was at the end of my rope: exhausted, defeated, scared it would be like this forever. I made an appointment with David, and it has changed my life. I cannot explain in words what it's been like to shed this truly horrible situation and feel like "me" again. David, you are amazing — you make life better — and I cannot thank you enough.
