Dave Nelson


Licensed Massage Therapist, MT-02674. Dave has been in practice since 2002.


Specializes in: Integrated Massage Therapy including deep tissue and trigger point work, Myofascial Release, and Hot Stones.


Education: 1000 hour certification in massage therapy from the Desert Institute of the Healing Arts Tucson, AZ in 2002. LaStone Therapy in 2003.


Motivation to Become a Bodyworker: I had been doing some massage on friends and acquaintances and they told me I was good at it. When I decided to become a bodyworker, I wanted to go through a credentialed program of massage study so I chose the Desert Institute. This was so I could really understand how the body works. This understanding is the basis for the best way for me to help people.


Personal Bodywork/Energy Therapy Statement: My treatments are based on understanding clients’ wellness issues and treating them accordingly to help them be more aware of their bodies. Spending a focused hour with a client really helps me understand his or her wellness needs and how I can help them.
