Helping people remove roadblocks to their own healing and performance

David has been working with the human body for 16 years as a personal trainer focusing on post-rehabilitation, a nutrition coach, and a health coach.  His focus has been transitioning people from out of physical therapy or injury and back into the activities they enjoy.  His philosophy is that, since one of the prime risk factors for future injury is previous injury, we need to be better at rehabilitating people completely and catching problems before they progress.

David has been working with the human body for 16 years as a personal trainer focusing on post-rehabilitation, a nutrition coach, and a health coach.  His focus has been transitioning people from out of physical therapy or injury and back into the activities they enjoy.  His philosophy is that, since one of the prime risk factors for future injury is previous injury, we need to be better at rehabilitating people completely and catching problems before they progress.

David has a bachelor’s in Kinesiological Sciences from the University of Maryland, and a master’s in Rehabilitation Science from California University of PA.  He is a certified Corrective Exercise Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He is also working on an MPH in nutrition and is a certified nutrition coach, and so he can offer basic nutritional advice for healing and performance in the context of your sessions.   

His massage approach combines movement and orthopedic assessment with Swedish massage, myofascial release, ‘trigger point’ therapy, and stretching with some facilitated movement.  He also enjoys providing exercise home-care recommendations for the remediation of a client’s movement challenges.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anonymous on Apr 22
David was excellent. He fixed my neck/back and even went above and beyond to recommend some stretches to help with some chronic injuries. I totally recommend him and will plan to see him again.
