I've seen David a few times and he does a remarkable massage on many levels. He seems to intuit just where the problem is and work out the tension gently. Almost life changing! Plus he is a terrific spiritual person. I've had massages all over the country and he is one of the TOPS.

Let me start by saying that I am a massage groupie. My boyfriend and I travel a lot with one of my friends and all three of us get massages at every place we visit.

So this was my first massage that I have ever received. David made it a very wonderful experience, he was so nice and professional. He did a great job on explaining everything. Since I workout religiously the deep tissue massage really helped my muscles recover and I really noticed a difference in the gym the next day. David is phenominal... More

Thank you for your kind words! Active people require more than just a relaxation massage. This massage is for the person seeking a very deep massage to loosen muscles, promote muscle recovery, remove toxins and soften injured connective tissue. Great for those doing sports, but also helpful to those in recovery from any injury caused by sports or accidents. We... More

My husband surprised me with a treatment at RestorationSpirit for my 70th birthday. I had the Native American sauna wrap with healing stones. David followed that with a therapeutic massage which was the best massage I've ever had. He combined several techniques including reiki and I left feeling rejuvenated and pain free. He also has crystals, bath salts and smudging... 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!

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!
