Hello, my name is David Madison. I would like to be your new massage therapist. Nothing is more rewarding to me than making someone feel better. I decided to get into massage after seeing how it benefited my mother while she was going through chemo treatments for pancreatic cancer. While studying at The University of Richmond (2010-2012) I discovered my passion for anatomy and helping people. While Virginia only requires 250 hours to be licensed for massage, I attended 750 of intense training in courses like Anatomy, Kinesiology, Pathology, Orthopedic Assessment as well as a foundation in many different natural healing modalities like Acupressure, Sports Medicine, Reflexology, Traditional Chinese medicine, Trigger Point therapy, Ayurvedic medicine, Aromatherapy, and Swedish massage. My massage is beneficial in areas like pain management, increasing range of motion, help with sleep, and decreasing stress levels among other things.
