About Dave by Author Dan Millman:
As many of you know, a great deal of my work has been influenced by the teachings of Dan Millman. Even using his books as text formats for some of my coaching methods, the “ Peaceful Warrior’’ philosophy has become integral to my professional work and personal life. So it was an amazing honor to share what I do with him, and even more gratifying to know I could be of service.
I have always considered myself fortunate to work in a field I love and feel passionate about. Moment by moment, my practice brings me spiritual peace as well as intellectual stimulation. On occasion, something happens that leaves me feeling extra inspired and grateful beyond words.

"Silk Reeling Hybrid®"
Among Dave's clients, his most popular work is a style that he has invented called "Silk Reeling Hybrid®". Hybrid® work synthesizes the best of the basic relaxation based Massage techniques with more advanced styles of Deep Tissue Bodywork, then ads to the mix a combination of, Breathwork, Meditation, Energy balancing, primal vibration and sound, and the signature use of TaiChi Silk Reeling techniques adapted to enhance and conduct the whole orchestra of healing modalities. Oh… and it feels really good too! lol
The main objective in a Silk Reeling Hybrid® session is to create an optimal environment for healing and transformation; and evoke a state where the recipient takes a journey to the still, quiet, and spacious place within themselves, from where all new life emerges in every given moment. Anyone having read Deepak Chopra's classic book, "Quantum Healing" will find this concept familiar.
Once fully mindful and present at that "Quantum" level or mindful state within, the Massage & Bodywork serves as a sophisticated vehicle to direct and pattern new growth in a rhythmic, relaxing, and nurturing way.
From feed back dave has received over the years, he humbly says that when your Silk Reeling Hybrid® session concludes, you feel as though you have had a great Massage that surpasses anything you will receive at a spa; and most importantly, you have had a transformational experience that has re-set and revived your Body, Mind, and Spirit. You have optimized your healing capacities. Oh… And it feels really good too! :~))
Hybrid® Practice Beyond The Table
As an optional adjunct to the table Bodywork, Dave teaches an exercise system designed to maintain and enhance the healing properties experienced on the table. This system is largely rooted in the TaiJi, QiGong, & Yoga traditions and embodies the same rhythms and breathing experienced during a healing table session. It creates a muscle/cellular memory, so to speak, that helps the individual sustain the healing work during their daily life, encouraging neuroplasticity by way of their movement and breathing patterns.

Some Traditional Bodywork Styles That Influence Dave's Work:
Effective and engaged, a neuro-muscular session focuses in on painful stress-related soft tissue problems by finding and deactivating “trigger points”. Trigger points are small, inflamed spots, on a muscle, that cause a chronic spasm that generates in the reflex arches of the spinal cord. Known as the pain-spasm-pain cycle, this reflex action is, often, the root cause of many chronically painful conditions such as Sciatica, TMJ, Lumbago, and most muscle/connective tissue related problems. As with most “Deep-Tissue” styles of massage, this is not a painful experience if applied properly as Dave does.
Stabilizing the structure of your body is the goal of a Myo-Facial session. Utilizing a combination of stretching and manual manipulation of the connective tissue known as “facia”, the Myo-Facial therapist seeks out and loosens areas where this substance has become shortened and/or stuck to muscles & bones. By releasing these “wound up” areas of facia, the general structure and posture of the body improves, allowing better range of motion and ease in movement.
Swedish Massage To Relax And Unwind
Therapy & Pampering come together in a Swedish massage, which is among the most well known styles of Therapeutic Massage. Performed on a Massage table with soothing lotion and aromatic oils; the generally light to medium pressure used along with its rhythmic and relaxing strokes in the direction of the heart create a great tonic to improve circulation and reduce stress.
Acupressure/Shiatsu - Thai Massage - To Revitalize The Energy System
Shiatsu & Acupressure are Eastern styles of Massage based on the principles of Acupuncture. Instead of needles, we use finger pressure applied to specific points on the body combined with special stretching, breathing, and massaging to balance the energy flow known as Chi. Traditionally performed without lotion and on a floor mat, a a Shiatsu and/or Thai Massage session can relieve stress while also leaving you feeling energized and refreshed.
A true bridge between the energetic and physical. Tuning in to the subtle movements of the body, I work to nourish the nervous system and balance your whole being. Subtle manipulation and light therapeutic touch to the head and spine help improve the rhythmic flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord.
A freer and easier way of being and moving is realized through effortless flowing movement and gentile touch. A deep state of relaxation is achieved as patterns of body and mind are balanced and calmed.
