David massage training took place at the renowned Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. He practiced Esalen massage for 10 years.
He realized that although massage therapy is a helpful tool for stress-reduction and mild pain relief, the benefits are only temporary.
Massage techniques do little to alleviate the chronic pain
conditions that he encounters within his clients. When introduced to the John Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release, David recognized that the therapeutic techniques of MFR went far beyond massage and traditional physical therapies.
MFR Therapy produces sustainable pain relief, promoting recovery from injuries, scar tissue and chronic holding patterns.
David has over the past 20 years helped countless individuals out of chronic pain and onto a road of recovery.
Conditions that respond well to MFR: Acute and Chronic Pain, Back Pain, Sciatica Nerve Impingement, Whiplash, Neck Pain, Headaches, Anxiety & Stress, Carpal Tunnel, Arthritis, Disc Problems, Repetitive Stress/Strain Injuries, Sprains.
In addition to MFR Therapy David also offers traditional massage therapy. With over 30 years of practice bring a lot to the table!
