About David

My work is for those looking for powerful transformative and healing work, for a transformational partner. Having done coaching and bodywork for over 20 yrs now, I am extensively skilled and passionate about what I do. Whether you are seeking relief for chronic physical or emotional pain, looking to connect with your inner peace, or wanting a fresh start, you will find a lasting impact that permeates your being.

The space you will enter with me is very different from most practitioners. I hold a space of unconditional love without judgment for you to engage in the questioning and exploration, healing and transformation that you hold the keys to yourself.

I create a safe space and to shine the light on areas you may be not be fully aware of, that may shift your entire perception through being aware of.

My extensive training in communication and listening gives me the ability to identify subtle, disempowering beliefs and thoughts. My nurturing approach makes it easy for you to relax and release, and to free yourselves in any way you'd like to be freed.

Whether male or female, straight or gay, transgender or CIS,

you will find comfort and nurturing acceptance with me.

Having studied many spiritual paths, I have an appreciation for all authentic spiritual paths. I adjust my vocabulary according to what best suits your preference, as I have no attachment to any religion or spiritual approach. For me, it is all just different ways of expressing underlying truths we are all looking to connect with more deeply.

I had been struggling with a pain in my back for many months. After my first massage with David, the pain was totally gone.'

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful massage. I am a new and improved person today because of it. I don't fully understand how your touch can feel so powerful.'
