About David's Massage
About David ...
I have over 15 years of experience. My training is in injury recovery and I know how to care for your body. I am intuitive and I have a naturally soothing touch. I am professionally trained and creative. I developed my technique that is unlike what they teach in schools. I maintain my body in top shape to insure you get a firm and deep massage treatment. I am a discreet and respectful professional.
I work in a chiropractic office 3 days a week. I focus on specific areas of your body that may be injured from sports, repetetive stress activity discomfort and chronic conditions such as frozen shoulder in conjunction with the Doctor to minimize the duration of recovery time. We work with automobile accident patients as well. Should you want to have this double-duty treatment plan, I will set you up with the Doctor. Please note: The Chiropractic office is in Berkeley just off the campus of UCBERKELEY. In Berkeley, ALL bodywork is STRICTLY THERAPEUTIC ONLY.
Transformational body manipulation. Heavy Sports RubDown. DeepTissue/Sports/Swedish/PressurePoint/Trager ~ Opens you up. Releases your stress. This massage is very and nurturing. We all need and enjoy skin on skin contact. I do not use any creams during the preliminary assessment. I determine where your body is storing stagnant energy by going over your body from head to toe. To make better contact with your muscles, I do not introduce the cream until later into the massage when I use BIOTONE's DualPurpose Massage Cream. Your stress dissolves. I man-handle your body in ways that will stimulate your circulation while releasing tensions. My 90 minute massage is a very intimate massage.
My storefront location is a very inviting and calm space. My clean, well designed facility has a steaming hot shower and an amazing quartz convection lamp bathing the table (and our bodies) with heat. I am conveniently located near public transit and very easy street parking. I am close to MUNI bus routes and a short walk from a BART station.

10David gave me a great massage from someone who knows all his stuff. His description in his ad is very true, since what I experienced is just what he described. How refreshing.He has a pleasing personality and I enjoyed the massage very much and am glad I called him. Male massage review by Baron (2 reviews)

10I saw David last Saturday and it was a wonderful experience. He lives in a very unique and interesting space, although not set up solely for massage. We didn't talk much and he even didn't ask me where I needed work. However, he managed to locate and address all of the right spots. He even got my traps to relax like no one had before (he's been doing this a long time and it shows). I asked for the 2 hour session and it gave him a chance to go over my entire body twice - once without lotion and the second time with lotion. He spent a great deal of time on top of me, which was nice to feel the warmth of the table below and the warmth of his body above, particularly in the openness of the room. At the end, I didn't want to move. He's a little more expensive than most but he's definitely a keeper. Thanks, David! Male massage review by Frank (4 reviews)

10I found David's profile on this site, and primarily influenced by the reviews called him with short notice for a Saturday afternoon. He phoned me back within an hour and saw me at the time that was most convenient for me. David's massage is quite unique. The masseur I have been using for several years has left the area, and I've been trying different ones with different techniques. I found David's approach to be the best fit for me and would highly recommend him to anyone. He has a very nice studio where he performs the massage (centrally located in San Francisco), and I found his presence to be both relaxing and comforting. The first hour of the massage is done "dry," which was perfect for me-he was able to work out all those knots and adhesions that I tend to accumulate in my back and shoulders. He also did a great job on loosening my legs, the quads and hamstrings and shins which are always tight for me. His touch is very intuitive and he knew exactly how much pressure was enough and when to back off. I play softball and the following day I had a game-I could tell a huge difference in my body movement. This is most definitely a massage I will return for! Male massage review by Philip (1 review)

10I am a serious athlete who plays roughly 20 hours or more of tennis a week. I met David referred by a friend as someone who specialised in treating athletes with the particular needs that we have around joints, tendons and muscles. I know it probably sounds like "overhype" but David is truly awesome. He really is. He is so acutely aware of the body and how it's put together, that he gave me the most intuitive massage ever. He really knows the body and more than that, he approaches his work with a passion I've never had before. He made me feel like I was his entire attention and he was entirely "present" for me and for my pains. If you are seeking a soft touch or a mellow swedish type massage, then Dave is not your guy. If you are looking however to get those long overdue adhesions, or "popcorn" spots really released, then David could be your man. One unique feature of his studio is that he has a heat lamp hanging from the ceiling so that while you are on the table you are staying nice and warm!!! Very nice treat!!! I will be an ongoing customer and can recommend him to other athletes as well - he knows sports and how it relates very specifically to the body. Bob Male massage review by Bob (1 review)

10I located David's site from massageM4M, sent him an email which was responded to via telephone within the hour. He has a very pleasant voice, calming and assured. He had availability that evening. He answered all my questions about the techniques he uses very clearly. Gave me precise and easy directions to his location. I felt right away that David was going to be a very comfortable and safe gentleman to experience great bodywork from. When I arrived, David was very warm and welcoming to his very unique home/studio. He provided me with water, great music, a heated massage table with an additional heat lamp suspended overhead. David is very handsome, very professional, very intuitive in his strong touch. His techniques are incredible for releasing knots and tension, opening energy that was blocked in my feet, back, butt and hands. Some in places I didn't even know I had. His strokes were constantly present, never losing contact throughout the entire nurturing and respectful experience. I felt that David genuinely loves his work which translated to an incredible opportunity to be touched by a very gifted man who cared about my wellbeing. After the massage we talked about the importance of continual body maintenance, the healing properties of being touched. I booked another appointment for next week. Very highly recommended.

10this guy has a truly unusual set up. He has a store front in San Francisco that is made up into his home. Very welcoming and different. He hugged me when I got there. He took me into the massage area and left the room to wash his hands. I got on the table and he came into the room right away. His touch is amazing. I melted into his nurturing hands. He uses a massage technique that I never ever had before where he vibrated my muscles and rocked my body and even took my whole shoulder into his hands and made a kind of circular motion and it opened up my shoulder and upper back. He kind of pummeled my buttocks but not too hard and when he started working on my feet-whoa- he did all of these bending moves to my feet that made them open up and crack and my feet felt like they had circulation for the first time in a long time. All of that part of the massage, he did with just his bare hands. Then he began to use this slick cream and treated my skin to a very rub. The one thing that I noticed was that he was very present and intuitive about where I was 'storing' tension and stress. He was very direct but not invasive. I never had a massage like this before.

10Male massage review by Nelson (7 reviews)David was wonderful! I needed someone who knows their craft and that was David. He worked my body over very well, and I appreciated the extra time he put into my upper back. I will be sure to look him up again!

10Male massage review by Lewis (2 reviews)While I now live in SF, in the past I was often here for work; I had seen David's ad/profile, but for some reason had never contacted him. MY LOSS. He's an excellent masseur, among the very best. He warmly welcomed me into his unique and attractive studio/home, and I felt at ease immediately. He intuitively found and eliminated my 'trouble spots,' and was totally focused on my well being for the entire two hours; his process is unique, unhurried, and complete; at intervals he verified that my needs/expectations were being met. While the important thing is the high quality of the massage, which he delivers in spades, I would quickly add that he is a very attractive guy, intelligent and personable. He seems totally at ease in his own skin and certainly makes me feel infinitely more comfortable in mine. Since moving here, I've had four massages from him, and I plan to continue as a client...no need to look further in the Bay area.

10Male massage review by Jerve (1 review)There is no other massage like the massage David gives. He read my body like a book. The way he manipulates my body both relaxes and awakens. He reaches depths of muscle penetration with out the painful after effects. I could lay under hsi hands for hours... I recommend two hours... nothing less.

10Male massage review by (1 review)I responded to David's ad here on MassageM4M because of the other reviews posted about his work. I'm a masseur myself (#11630) and I'm interested in masseurs who do serious work and the description of his work as "different" intrigued me and seemed worth investigating. I'm happy to say David does an excellent job. David is very knowledgeable about the muscles of the body, tension, and how to release the tension. He works diligently and with intent and really puts his whole body into the massage so it's very effective. He's very friendly and warm and he gets his whole body involved in his work. There was a aspect to the massage but it was not the primary focus which is just the way I like it. I look forward to having him work on me again the next time he's in NYC.
