About Me

Life is too short to not enjoy it!

Hello! I’m David, the owner of Back To Your Roots Body Shop and founder of Body Reflex Therapy.  I am a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), and professional experiential educator and communication skills coach.  I have been studying and practicing various forms of body work for almost 30 years.  My background includes multiple styles of martial arts and dance and a career as an experiential educator and outdoor adventure instructor, as well as teaching physical education and fitness in schools and community centers.  I am passionate about living outside of my comfort zone, teaching, spending time outdoors, immersing myself in different cultures and studying a variety of topics around human psychology and personal growth.

My uniquely holistic and comprehensive approach primarily utilizes:

  • Neurophysiological programming
  • Neuromuscular therapy
  • Myofascial & trigger point release
  • Medical & sports massage
  • Assisted stretching
  • Neurological down-regulation
  • Breath, movement, and somatic awareness coaching.


Our work together will explore how your unique lifestyle habits, movement patterns, and physical and psychological stressors affect your long term neuromuscular, myofascial, and postural patterns.  Once we understand these roots, we can start reprogramming your understanding of how you physically interact with your environment and your own body to create a self-sustaining cycle of lasting change. 

My goal is to help my clients feel their best and live their most vibrant and fulfilling lives through healthy movement.  While I can’t guarantee results, many of my clients have found lasting relief from their ailments where other personal trainers, doctors, physical therapists, and health practitioners have failed.  Some have even avoided unnecessary surgeries.
