During my recent trip to Galena my girlfriend booked me a deep tissue massage. Wow!!! David was professional, courteous, and came in on his day off to provide me with the best massage I have ever received! I was feeling back in my lower back and after David was finished I felt like a new man! He even took extra... More

When my mom suggested RestorationSpirit during a day trip to Galena, I thought I would be receiving just a regular massage, but the experience I had here was way more than that! I am an athlete with knee and neck pain and David was able to alleviate my discomfort in an hour. I felt great for days after, and I... More

David presented an enlightening and very enjoyable half hour about the magical and healing powers of certain stones and their effect on the human body and spirit. Very refreshing, I was impressed by the extensive hours of learning and research David shared with us. Loved the class!

My experience with RestorationSpirit (so far) is participation in the "A Peaceful Mind Meditation" class. I came to the class with a pretty good foundation around meditation as well as a daily practice in place. David's class, however, presented another tool for my meditation tool box focusing on a technique that can be used at any moment, at any place,... More

The classes offered by Restoration Spirit are absolutely AMAZING!!! So very informative and the lessons you receive can easily be used at home. I took the Smudging, Chakras, and Meditation classes. David is very knowledgeable and has an amazing ability to transfer this knowledge to his students. Since the classes are small, he can adjust the material to fit the... More

I have had lots of massages over the years and this one was EFFECTIVE. Not just feel good but did what one hopes -- helped give me range of motion and overcome years of stiffness. A++ and a really nice man, easy to talk to, and clearly knows what he is doing.

I have had many massages - therapeutic and otherwise. David's massage was truly the best and most helpful I have ever had. He not only advised me on how to address ongoing issues but also identified older issues I hadn't mentioned. I look forward to my next visit. Absolutely the best!
