Long term progress and wellness depends on much more than the time spent training at RVA Performance Training.
We believe that to make your training a sustainable, long-term endeavor, you need to also focus on your recovery. Massage is one of the best ways to ensure that your body is appropriately recovering from the stresses of training, and will help you continue to move pain free while getting the most out of your time spent in the gym.
Our focus on improving your movement and targeting the areas of greatest need in your body based on a clinical assessment process can do even more to prevent and relieve pain, free up your joint motion, and reduce stiffness. Massage has also been shown to reduce post-workout soreness.
All prices include exercise recommendations, and (if needed/requested) cupping or instrument assisted techniques. Schedule today!

David has been working with the human body for 16 years as a personal trainer focusing on post-rehabilitation, a nutrition coach, and a health coach. His focus has been transitioning people from out of physical therapy or injury and back into the activities they enjoy. His philosophy is that, since one of the prime risk factors for future injury is previous injury, we need to be better at rehabilitating people completely and catching problems before they progress.
David has a bachelor’s in Kinesiological Sciences from the University of Maryland, and a master’s in Rehabilitation Science from California University of PA. He is a certified Corrective Exercise Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He is also working on an MPH in nutrition and is a certified nutrition coach, and so he can offer basic nutritional advice for healing and performance in the context of your sessions.
His massage approach combines movement and orthopedic assessment with Swedish massage, myofascial release, ‘trigger point’ therapy, and stretching with some facilitated movement. He also enjoys providing exercise home-care recommendations for the remediation of a client’s movement challenges.
