I have had a fair number of massages, but honestly a massage by David is like nothing you've ever experienced! Unbelievable. Unique techniques make the stress/pain melt away! His philosophy isnt just about massage - it is more about improving your over overall health through how he performs the massage. Now I'm spoiled! Thanks for sharing your gift with others... More

This was a wonderful healing massage. My whole body felt revived - especially the areas that he had concentrated on. I would highly recommend David!

When you are in Galena or planning to relax and have a massage in your home in Northern Chicagoland or Naperville, think of David who is the owner of Restoration Spirit. He knows how to help you to relax by finding the stress points in your body. He has studied Eastern and Native American healing arts such as massage, oils,... More

Thank you for returning to Galena and making RestorationSpirit a part of your trip once again! Many 'tourist' clients return to us for massage, Eastern bodywork, or to take one of our many wellness classes. It's truly a blessing when out-of-town clients return, it means we've stayed with you all year and remain something to look forward to! :) More

My husband and I recently had massages with David on a recent weekend trip to Galena. He was very professional, kind, and thorough. I have had many different kinds of massage therapy in the past and thought that in order to get the knot out of the muscle, some pain was involved in the release. However, he was able to... More

Our goal is to live up to the reviews!! Thank you so much for your kind words! RestorationSpirit uses techniques learned form years of traveling around the world. Therapeutic massage doesn't have to be painful - and it shouldn't. The last thing a tired, sore, muscle wants is to be assaulted with harsh techniques. Your mind's and the muscle's natural... More

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.
