I began seeing you for neck and shoulder pain due to stress and poor posture. You were very thorough with the massage itself as well as explaining the anatomical reasons behind my discomfort. The sessions were not only giving me relief but were also very relaxing. You gave me some exercises that could be done at home to alleviate some of the muscle tightness. David, you definitely know your stuff as well as being kind and patient!

David is an amazing and knowledgeable massage professional. He takes the time to understand your general health and your aches and pains along with any potential relationship between the two. The massage setting is comfortable and relaxing. Like many people, most of my musculoskeletal problems have to do with sitting all day and over doing it on the weekends. The first time I visited David the scapular muscles beneath my shoulder blades were so tight I could barely turn my head. After my session with David the mobility increased to the extent Linda Blair would be jealous. Another time I had low back pain. After thirty minutes of massage I was pain free and levitated out of his office equipped with specific exercises meant to minimize a recurrence.nThe benefits to massage become more evident to me with every session. Thank you David for an excellent massage experience!

Thank you so much for your expertise and caring during my recent knee replacement surgery just ten weeks ago. After the surgeon operated on my left knee I was put on a prescription of pain medication and physical therapy. I didn't like the way I felt on the pain medication but was helped tremendously by attending physical therapy sessions three days a week. To make the physical therapy even better I was referred to your care for deep tissue clinical massage. After my first visit to you, the bone pain I was feeling was greatly reduced. After three visits my bone pain was reduced so much, that my knee discomfort was no longer an issue to my recovery. Thank you again for getting me through this difficult period. I feel that anyone undergoing knee replacement surgery will benefit greatly by linking physical therapy to clinical massage therapy. Your expertise absolutely accelerated my healing and I am truly grateful.

I’ve had the opportunity to observe David’s clinical interaction with patients as he has demonstrated a confidence and clinical excellence. David has shown his aptitude for learning by regularly researching specific medical conditions of his patients to better provide for their needs with massage. David regularly receives testimonials from his patients thanking him for the high level of service and helping them in seeing resolution with a variety of medical conditions as well as general relaxation needs.

I was always very nervous about having a massage because I suffer from ongoing neck pain and I didn’t like the thought of someone making it worse. However, my husband had some issues with sciatica and went to see David. After only a few sessions his pain was gone and he encouraged me to go as well. It helped to know that David was a trained professional and had even taught at the college level. Though I saw a chiropractor regularly, my pain was constant so I decided to give it a try. Having David give me a massage was not like going to a spa. It was an educational experience and a healing session all rolled into one. As time went on, my monthly sessions let me skip the chiropractor because they kept me loose and feeling better. David also recommended exercises to strengthen and work on weaker areas between visits which have helped as well. If you think massages are only for vacations or pampering sessions, you will be surprised at how much your body can experience healing and move you toward good health by seeing David. It really is amazing how one hour can make such a difference in how you feel and how you are able to handle stress. I highly recommend a visit to David. You will be so glad that you did and you will truly experience a difference in how you feel!


I have worked with David Fireside as my massage therapist for the last eleven years. It was recommended to me to get a massage therapist to join my team of clinicians to help with range of motion, circulation and prevention of contractions. He has been an invaluable member of my team with his extensive knowledge of my anatomy and physiology. I feel so lucky that I have had the opportunity to work with David. He not only is very professional but he also is a ray of sunshine. It is with no hesitation that I recommend David as a massage therapist.

I have been a patient of David Fireside for the past 7 months. I am a physician with a specialty in Internal Medicine & Oncology. I found David to be very thorough & evidence based on his therapeutic technique & methodology. His massage is one of the best that i have ever experienced. He also provided me with a holistic approach to back pain which included an analysis of my posture/work space & simple home exercises to strengthen my core muscles & posture. I highly recommend him & will not hesitate to refer him my patients who has chronic back issues.

I have come to appreciate a true professional with this and I developed a variety of criteria when I choose to frequent the same massage therapist regularly. These criteria include, of course, friendliness and positive attitude about their job but also more importantly their knowing where to treat and how with particular sensitivity to their patient as to how deep to go on a deep-tissue massage and remember that amount each time I come in.
