So Dave is the real deal, very competent and knows what he is doing. My lower back was killing me and his massage skills, fixed me right up. Amazing healing hands. I will be back.

I’ve seen Dave infrequently, as I only get to the great PNW, every few years. When Dave gave me the address for his newest studio, it showed much closer to downtown Seattle, than where he was on the west side. Google maps image sort of looked like an old building, so I was a bit skeptical, however, I’ve only been in the best hands when he has worked on me, which is why I didn’t let the old building stop me from the short Uber ride. I also see this is a historic landmark. Enough of that. The massage was performed on a heated, flannel Drapped professional table. His massages are more about the energy, overall results, of releasing the stress I carry around, and I leave rejuvenated. I find with any good massage, I can have some pain, but the next day. I felt great!

I was visiting Seattle, and decided to get a massage. I texted a couple and found David got back to me right away. He gave me a great massage, and I could tell he actually loved what he was doing! If I come back to Seattle, I will book with David.

I didn’t realize what I’ve been missing these past few years. I’ve always just done walk in massages and happy to have found Dave on this site. I will be back, for sure!

I have been seeing Dave, everytime I visit Seattle. His new location is very convenient to where I usually stay, which is the Capitol Hill region. (His location is a couple miles just south of downtown). He always provides me with an excellent massage. I get massages all over the world, and I will say, nothing compares to the way David understands my body. I will let him work his magic, and I leave feeling like a new man! He is very easy to talk with, pleasant to look at, prompt text replies, and of course I will return each time I visit.


May 04, 2022 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

This is my first time back with one of my favorites, since the beginning of lockdown. The location of his massage space (Georgetown), just a minute south of downtown Seattle, is much easier for me, ( than West Seattle), since I live on the east side. I will be back, again and again. Here’s my “thumbs up” to Dave. (I did find I had to book in advance, to see him.)

Sept. 30, 2021 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

David is truly an exceptional massage therapist his techniques are excellent and his space is so comforting the table is warm as his hands are as well. I’ve been having David work on me for about seven years. I know he’s been massaging longer than that but fortunately I found him after having quite a few others that were not nearly as capable. I am thankful to be in Davids care.

Oct. 01, 2020 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

So thankful Dave has decided to start seeing clients again. ( I personally won’t see anyone else for massage). He is licensed and understands the seriousness of the pandemic. I was able to book a massage appointment and my body is grateful! My advice to his other lucky clients is to be sure to plan in advance. (If you want the best massage in Seattle, in my opinion)..Stay healthy!

I’ve been getting massages from David for many years, and must say, he gives the best massage by far, of any I’ve ever had. I highly recommend him and am so thankful he is easy to get to.

David is a great guy, friendly, kind, great personality and gives a fantastic massage. He does a 5plus star job while making sure u get the massage that you want. ( and he doesn’t seem to watch the clock). He seems genuinely concerned about his clients and offers a super clean friendly setting. You can’t go wrong with David.

I had a great massage with David. I would highly recommend him.

Oct. 02, 2017 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

Don’t miss to stop by Dave if you are visiting Seattle. I am sure if you live there so you have already figured out yourself how special Dave’s massage is. I have challenged Dave to give me a real deep tissue massage as he wrote about it in his profile. Dave have delivered one of the best deep tissue. In addition, he was kind enough to show me his art after cleaning up and taking a nice shower. I consider myself lucky to pick Dave’s massage among all others in this website.

July 30, 2017 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

David's massage techniques involved an unusual consideration of your whole body even when he was focusing on a body part, compared to other masseurs that usually just work from part to part. This felt really satisfying and comfortable. Went to his place after a long-haul flight then totally got relaxed and ready for the jet lag. His place was very interesting and had a massage studio really comfortable and private.

Amazing skills, most therapeutic and relaxing massage I have ever received.

May 26, 2017 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

Best masseur on this site. The massage and bodywork was strong, intentional, adaptive and relaxed. You won't find better. David is amazing. The only downside is traveling to west Seattle.

May 05, 2017 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

I've seen Dave a couple of times now and each massage has been great. He's very friendly and has a great overall technique. His location is easy to get to and comfortable. Definitely a recommend.

Oct. 26, 2015 in Seattle, WA (in-studio)

What a great massage. It's always a bit daunting trying someone new, but I felt at ease almost immediately. I went in with my neck and shoulders extremely tense, and came out feeling like I was floating. Booking an appointment was easy; much easier than trying to book though one of those chain massage places (Massage Envy). I will definitely be a repeat customer.
