Overview

Full-Spectrum Bodywork with David Lowenfels

Experience my warm caring touch, infused with precision, safety, and positive energy. You'll be amazed how relaxed and refreshed you feel after leaving your session!
I can help your posture, tight shoulders, and low back pain; but where I really shine is taking you on a deeply transformative tour of your inner landscape.

I'll be your guide to comfort, freedom, and an expanded sense of wholeness. Your tissues tell me where and how... deep to go, as I work directly with the liquid-crystal fascia interconnecting the entire body.

Lightyears beyond a traditional massage, I incorporate stretching and cradling in ways you likely have never experienced before. We can also work with breath and energy to liberate buried emotions.

16 years in bodywork, deep life experience, and unique trainings (structural integration, belly massage, lymphatic drainage, emotional process) bring depth and presence to each session.

Testimonials

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

Dec. 08, 2019 in Sebastopol, CA (in-studio)

My 3 hour healing bodywork session with David was one of the most wonderful experiences of my 62 year life. David is much more than a massage therapist, he is an artist and healer. His touch is sometimes intense, sometimes gentle, always heartfelt, connected, even mind-boggling -- he conjured sensations I didn't even know were possible by using both his hands and feet at the same time! David has an ability to read my body like a book, nonverbally inquiring into its precise needs and wishes As he guided me to breathe while he worked trigger points, an old traumatic memory came to the surface that I was finally able to emotionally digest. As a result I cried some tears of grief, and then laughed with joy. Days later I am feeling profoundly balanced and whole, grateful to be free of physical and emotional pain.

The massage experience was wonderful. I get massage weekly and your technique is masterful, fearless and very productive. I am amazed at the strength and effectiveness of your techniques. You have my highest gratitude and my highest recommendation. I'll be back for more!

From 1987-1990, I didn't realize my first massage therapist was the best until he moved away. No one has come close to that guy's skills. David just left my home and I told him he was better than the guy I had put on a pedestal for nearly thirty years. This was indeed the best call I made today. This time I will treasure David now knowing that he is the best!

David is the best massage therapist I have been too. He always applies the right amount of pressure and checks in frequently. Recently, I had an issue with my hip and he knew exactly how to help me out. Immediately the day after I felt great. I would highly recommended him if you're in the area. I definitely will be rebooking more appointments.

David is very intuitive, strong and genuine. His home is cozy and comfortable just like his presents. I appreciated his deep understanding of massage and keen knowledge of bodywork. He's clearly a master at his talent and I encourage more masseurs follow his lead. I will continue to work with him because he makes you feel incredible.

I have received several amazing massages from David. When I arrive he is always warm and welcoming. On my first visit he spent a few minutes interviewing me about my needs and then we got started with the massage. He has a really amazing touch. His positive energy literally flows through his hands and into you. He uses many techniques that I haven't experienced elsewhere, all of which feel incredible - finding places in my back, neck, and shoulders that I didn't even know were there. He checks in with me regularly about pressure and how I am doing. I have never needed to ask him to change it as he just knows exactly how much to use to release the muscles without becoming painful. I've had many massages over the years, but David's are special! I'll certainly be returning in the near future. I highly recommend him!

David is a warm and kind soul. He has a keen sense of the male anatomy and some of the stretches he engaged me in where extremely unique and beneficial. I'd highly recommend David's massage skills to anyone.
