Overview

Welcome to my massage profile. I am a professionally trained therapist and held a Rhode Island license in 2000 for massage therapy. I am also a certified Reiiki Practitioner in the state of Florida and utilize energy healing in my massage. My technique is unique and unlike anyone else's. Just ask the many clients who have reviewed me on here from the 20 states I visit regularly. My training... is enhanced with my college education in Nursing and Pharmacy and Naturapathy and competitive bodybuilding/coaching. I have an extremely intuitive approach to my massage fueled by my gift as a clairesentient and empath. This allows me to channel chi the universal life force energy and balance the chakras in the body. I use moderate to deep pressure in a Lomi Lomi and Shiatsu and trigger point technique with soft tissue and joint manipulation techniques and active stretching. My clients often say they have never experienced the intricate positions my hands make in maneuvering over the muscles on the body. This is my own technique not taught in massage schools. I have restored joint mobility, removal of scar tissue/fibrosis, knots and tension and neuromuscular sciatica. I also can adjust pressure to a softer more relaxing effleurage all depending on your massage needs. I am based in Fort Lauderdale but travel frequently to other cities. Allow yourself to be massaged by a true healer who is a cut above the rest in many ways. I have worked on many people who come to me because of a problem that could not be resolved so do careful research when looking for someone qualified by paying attention to the reviews and how we describe our massage in our profiles. Trust your instincts. Your first intuition is usually the right one. It would be a pleasure to be able to work on you and make you feel great! Best way to set up an appointment is to text me and if you do not get a reply right away please be patient as I am probably in session and never like to reply back to texts until I am done with my massage. After all it is your time. Thank you!

Testimonials

Gathered by Dale from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Jan. 13, 2018 in Oakland Park, FL (in-studio)

DC provides excellence in his massage techniques. He possesses an excellent understanding of the body and has superb technical skills. He instinctively knows how to address any areas of concern and is able to alleviate any built-up muscle tension and stress. He provided very good information on how to deal with my shoulder issues and advised me on dealing with various arthritic problems. He is also a genuinely nice guy. I would certainly recommend him.

Sept. 16, 2017 in Columbus, OH (in-studio)

DC is one of the best masseurs I have encountered. He is personable, extremely easy to converse with and an intuitive masseur. He gave me the most thorough massage, stretching and massaging my muscles. He was attentive to my needs making sure that the pressure was just right. After the massage, we had a great conversation about life and current events. I could talk with home for hours. We have been in tough since our meeting and I look forward to booking my nest appointment with D.C. when he returns to the area

Sept. 16, 2017 in Columbus, OH (in-studio)

D.C. Is a master at his craft. He intuitively knew exactly what I needed. The massage pressure was perfect and he masterfully massaged every muscle. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I will certainly book another massage with him the next time he is in town . He has a pleasant personality, an excellent attitude, and a positive outlook on life. I think I could have sat with him all day and had an intellectual conversation with him. I feel he is a rare gem: one who takes pride in his profession and treats everyone as if they are a life-long friend.

Sept. 15, 2017 in Columbus, OH (in-studio)

D.C. Greeted me warmly and looked exactly like his pictures. His training in anatomy and health, coupled with his experience and intuition, made for an incredible massage. I play a lot of soccer and that leads to my IT bands getting very tight. He knew exactly what to do. I will definitely see him again when we are in the same town. He may have given me my best massage ever. Thanks, C.!

Aug. 08, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

What a great massage. His bodybuilding background gives him a base of knowledge of the body and how to massage an athletic person such as myself. He went really deep and took his time in tight areas.

Aug. 01, 2017 in Jacksonville, FL (in-studio)

Hands down best massage ever. DC is the man!

June 11, 2017 in New Orleans, LA (in-studio)

Incredible deep tissue massage. Targeted all the areas that needed attention. Very nice and comforting guy.

May 30, 2017 in Jacksonville, FL (in-studio)

Gentlemen, you could see for yourself what a good looking guy DC is. His pix are completely accurate. Beyond that, DC is arguably the best massage therapist that I've ever been to. He's trained, he's professional, and he's dedicated to his client's satisfaction. He's an excellent conversationalist and I was immediately completely relaxed With his great touch! I've been looking for years for just the right guy to go back to exclusively when he is in town and I've found him its DC. His last visit I set up two appointments he is that great! I can't wait for his return to the area again.

I tend not to be overly verbose in critiques but in summary, Joe is the consummate professional and you will be assured of an excellent massage and you're thoroughly enjoy the time spent on his table.

April 17, 2017 in Dallas, TX (in-studio)

DC is incredible; I regret that he does not live here! I like a deep massage and as a Reike master he can deliver! This is a very professional massage and I appreciate that. Will of course use him again!!

March 15, 2017 in Orlando, FL (in-studio)

A consummate professional - A First Class experience. It is very difficult to find a good massage these days - this gentleman obviously knows his profession and possesses above average skills! I have frequent pain in neck, back and legs - I can honestly say DC addressed all of them like few have ever done! I felt amazing the next day and now 2 days later I am still without any pain. Well done, DC. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

April 29, 2016 in Dallas, TX (in-studio)

DC is incredible! After a rocky start connecting (my cell phone died as I was entering hotel) DC and I connected and the massage as well as the man was unbelievable. This is the best massage I have had and I get a lot of massages. DC is also one of the most caring, empathetic men I have met in quite some time. He is certainly worth getting a massage from and is just a heck of a nice guy!!

Sept. 20, 2015 in Manhattan, NY (in-studio)

DC doesn't travel often, but when he comes to NYC don't miss him. His massage techniques and ability are exceptional. His soul and his work is very intuitive and he is gifted with healing hands. DC is like no other masseur I've had the pleasure of working with.
DC is a beautiful man, intelectually, physically and spiritually...

When you work with DC, you will understand why I share this quote.

Aug. 21, 2015 in Wilton Manors, FL (in-studio)

I haven't slept this soundly in a long time. DC gave a deep tissue massage. He really paid attention to the trigger points and his professional training made it possible for him to loosen up my joints and flexors. He was able to massage out the pain from a shoulder injury. He is a strong guy with great technique. Highly recommended.

April 22, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

This was my second massage from Dc and I have to say it was even better than the first. DC starts off lightly massaging all of your body and then progresses into an amazing deep tissue massage. He finds the knots and works them out! This man knows his craft.

Sept. 07, 2014 in Boston, MA (in-studio)

It was a very relaxing and incredible experience. DC made me feel comfortable immediately. Very intelligent and amusing. The massage was great. He gradually got to the trouble spots and worked them like no other masseur has ever done before. I run a lot and worked my thighs and the tightness is gone. My shoulder is my problem area and he focused the region with laser precision. When I got home all I could do was sleep. It's been 3 days and the tightness in my neck, shoulders, arms well everywhere are gone. If he lived in Boston I would make him my regular masseur. Not to mention the extra bonus of all his strength and muscles working on you. It was money well spent!

July 26, 2014 in Philadelphia, PA (in-studio)

From the minute DC greeted me I knew I was in a for a very relaxing massage. He really knows his way around a guy's body. His strokes were very targeted and I felts the knots in my muscles melting away. This was, without a doubt, the most thorough of massages I have ever experienced. I have had a tightness in my right shoulder for several weeks and it has really been bothering me...it's now gone. If you have the opportunity to book an appointment with DC...do it immediately. You will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to the next time he is in town. oh yeah, I forgot to mention...DC has an awesome body and very friendly personality. The perfect package!
