Dave McDowell_r2_c3LMT, Quantum Therapist.

My life after college with a degree in music began as a piano teacher and soon progressed to a piano technician as well. I still pursue my musical interests and continue to tune and repair pianos to this day.

I took a side trip into the corporate world and became a chief financial officer and chief information officer for 20+ companies in a group of closely owned entities during the 80’s and 90’s. I also owned my own businesses for a short time in the early 2000’s until the universe suggested that I pursue my true calling as a massage therapist.

After receiving many years of gift certificates for massage therapy from my family, I was inspired to go back to school at the end of 2002 and received my massage therapy license (LMT) in 2003. I have my national certification in massage therapy (NCBTMB), and I am licensed to practice in the states of Delaware and Pennsylvania. My myofascial release (MFR) studies have included basic and advanced myofascial techniques in 3 courses – MFR I, MFR 2 and MFR3 – in addition to the following advanced coursework: soft tissue mobilization; 2 courses in working with cervical, thoracic and pelvic osseous structures; 2 courses in unwinding; a rebounding course, a 40-hour skill enhancement course at the Sedona, AZ Barnes Clinic (Therapy on the Rocks) and a course in subtle energy.

I believe that my mission as a massage therapist is to assist and facilitate that natural well-being that exists in each of us. As an expert John Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) Therapist, I am able to utilize my extensive education and enhanced skills to pursue this mission. MFR is a holistic approach to well-being. This method is a journey into better understanding yourself. An individual’s healing comes from within their essence. It sometimes just needs some help to reveal itself.
