Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • True deep tissue. You will feel pain..but it will feel good.

    I have been struggling with leg pain for some time. Dave was able to identify certain points in my legs and reduce my pain. Dave has helped me with my pain many ways including giving me instructions for proper stretching. I will be back for future treatments. Thank you Dave.

  • Dave was very knowledgeable, good-natures and instructive.

    Dave has an amazing, healing talent. I would highly recommend him ... Annmarie DiClemente from Melrose

  • Everything about the experience was great. Dave is a true professional. He explains everything beforehand and provides insight as to what you can expect to benefit from the treatment.

    Clean, simple studio with nice ambiance.

  • I wish insurance would cover these therapeutic massage's, Any active person could and would benefit from them.

    I really liked this deep therapeutic massage. All the painful areas of my upper back and legs were covered. I have had therapeutic massage but not this deep. At the end of the 60 minutes, I was very woozy and light-headed. So much so, that I was unsure of driving home. Dave gave me water and I did make it home fine. It would have been good to have juice.

  • Great explanation of treatment methods (and this is coming from someone who is also a healthcare professional).

    Very professional. Makes you feel comfortable the entire time

Dave will tell you that there will be some discomfort during the massage,but it is well worth the outcome.I would highly recommend giving him the opportunity to treat you.

Clear, direct, and with a good sense of humor. Previewed the different steps with me as we went through. Really knowledgable and down to earth. Best massage I've gotten.

Excellent all around. This is NOT an Elements or Massage Envy experience. This is a truly therapeutic, 'muscular work-out' in every sense. If you're an athlete, or even a former athlete like myself, you NEED this. For me, a muscular awakening...... WOW! Highly recommend.

Honestly, the best sports-type massage I ever had. I could not believe all of the knots I wasn’t even aware of. Dave did a great job focusing on those points. I can’t believe what a difference it made.

Dave is outstanding... His knowledge and technique are top notch... Don't waste another dime on a overpriced, over aromatic sleep session, with a mild back rub.. Go for the pinpoint precision of a well trained highly skilled professional. You will walk taller and feel 150% better.

I sure thought I was making it difficult for Dave, being a 66 yr old scheduled for knee surgery. Nothing I did at the Y could loosen me up. Dave has been great, transforming my gate from an old mans shuffle to a near normal walk even with one bad knee. I'm looking forward to post surgery sessions so Dave can help my golf game.

Dave has an intuitive sense for what is going on. He is not just a trained massage therapist. He is a gifted massage therapist. He is very professional and wants you to heal, as opposed to returning for unnecessary visits. I never submit reviews, but Dave is well worth it.
