    David worked with me after my car accident. His his focus on energy and healing when I was in such bad shape was one of a kind. I am a personal trainer and running coach and have send several clients to him and they always go out of their way to thank me for referring them to David Emery Massage.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I welcome you in, offer you some water. I ask you a few questions about your problem areas and health history. I want to know if there are injuries I should look out for while working with you. Then I go was my hands, while you hop on the table. I come back and knock on the door and wait to hear it's okay to enter. I enter and get to work with your problem.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attended Everest Institute in Tigard, Oregon and graduated in 2008 with Honors. Since then, I have studied various massage and energy techniques ranging from sports massage and rehab, shiatsu, abyanhga, cranial sacral, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, massage for orthopedic conditions, Reiki, Kinesiology, and Trigger Point Therapy.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I grew up up in a family of athletes and was asked daily by one of my 3 brothers, mom, or dad to walk on their back, rub their shoulders, help them stretch out their legs, arms, back, chest and neck muscles. When I moved away from home, I used my experience to help my friends in the same way and after many suggestions to become a massage therapist, I decided to go to school and get licensed.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with athletes, post-operation, car wrecks,work accidents, pregnancy massage, Highly stressed professionals, lawyers doctors, CEOs, people with chronic headaches whiplash, sciatica, and carpal tunnel.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A team of therapists and myself went to a large corporate office and worked with the staff. It was enlightening to see the HR's dedication to the staff. Really a great company.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Experience matters.
