I had been experiencing discomfort and pain in my body, especially my legs, for quite some time. As a colleague, I knew that David’s specialty is Craniosacral Therapy and I asked him to work on/with me. Our session confirmed to me just how gifted and skilled he was. David assessed my pain and made me feel comfortable. He checked in with me throughout the whole session, which made me feel safe and supported. David was able to facilitate some healing for me because the next day, I was raving about how my legs were pain free (for the first time in a long time). I would refer any client that needed craniosacral therapy to David and I look forward to the next time I can work with him.

I am the front desk person at the health club that David works at. In December of 2011 David noticed me holding my back. He asked what was wrong and I told him that I had back pain. He asked me some questions about my back and I told him that I thought it was from an epidural I had when my son was born. He asked me more questions and I remembered that I had been in a car accident many years ago. He said that he thought the back pain might be from unresolved trauma from the car accident and it was made worse by the epidural.
We discussed the details of the car crash and he drew a representation of the accident focusing on where I had been sitting and the angle that the other car struck my parents’ car. He said he thought he could help me and I told him that I didn’t have time for a massage. He said that I didn’t need a massage but I might be helped by Craniosacral Therapy. I told him that I would have a fifteen-minute break when I would be eating and taking care of personal business. He said that that would be fine and we could work in the small side office.
I sat, eating a sandwich and talking on my cell phone while he held his hands lightly on my shoulder and lower back. At the end of my break we finished the session and I went back to work. It is now ten months later and my back no longer hurts.
