I can't say enough about how the chronic pain is no longer an issue after a massage from David. I would follow him to the ends of the earth to be able to get a massage from him.
San Fernando Valley - October 9, 2022
David is one of the very best wellness massage therapists I’ve ever had! He is very knowledgeable about both sports related aches and computer/stress problems and is able to relieve the pain and help you back to recovery! Not only are the massages great, but also he has special equipment for wellness including a sit-in sauna, Norma-tech, and massage guns that really assist in the healing process too. Try him you won’t regret it!

David is amazing! Though I first met him during the pandemic, you could sense him smiling behind his mask instantly!
From the clean soft sheets (no starched white scratchy sheets here), to the relaxing scent of lavender, you’re already starting to relax before the massage starts. Especially if you enjoy the infrared sauna beforehand!
As a Nurse Practitioner, I’m selective about who I work with. With David’s impressive knowledge of anatomy, body mechanics and sports injuries, I knew I was in good hands.
His National Academy of Sports Medicine certifications for corrective exercise and performance enhancement, coupled with years of working with athletes allow him a unique perspective of understanding both the injury and the mindset of the athlete or client, and how challenging recovery can be (physically and mentally).
His endless tools (theragun, Normatec, etc) highlight his skills and ability to customize your sessions, and are one of the many reason I’m a regular.
But a big reason I come back is because I love supporting great people. He truly cares about his clients (I’ve received reminder texts to hydrate!) and is a hardworking guy who has built an amazing business with his work ethic and talents.
Thanks David! See you soon! (If you’re not booked after I post this review)

I was recently diagnosed with military neck and I was lucky enough to be referred to David. I was in a lot of pain and he helped me with his infrared sauna and massage. He was so gentle yet he really fixed me! Just what I needed at the perfect time in my life! David you have a client for life! I 100% recommend David especially if you have any sports injuries!

I have been consistently seeing David Cantrell for massage therapy and infrared sauna recovery modalities for over a year now. I see him every week. I value and recognize the importance of regular massage therapy, so finding a professional that I could trust and whose knowledge of the body and recovery was extensive was extremely important to me.
I had seen massage therapists prior to David and would typically have a short term relationship. Their services weren’t consistent or they weren’t able to make a regular commitment or I didn’t necessarily feel as comfortable as I could.
After meeting David, I knew pretty quickly that his services were top notch. He has a history in athletics and recovery and knows how to work with healthy and injured individuals. I met him when I was very active and healthy. During the course of our relationship, I injured my cervical spine. I had to do extensive PT. Seeing David and trusting him to care for me during a vulnerable time was extremely comforting. He was confident working with me as I recovered (and I did make a full recovery by the way!).
As a 42 year old woman, I’m trying to stay as active and healthy as possible and avoid injury if I can by keeping my muscles pliable. David offers the infrared sauna prior to my massage and this extra step was something I had never seen prior to meeting David and this adds tremendous value to our session.
David is kind, trustworthy, ethical, reasonably-priced, knowledgeable and strong. He creates an incredibly relaxing environment at his space in a physical therapy office. He plays light music, diffuses essential oils, and offers very pleasant conversation if you feel like chatting.

I'm David Cantrell’s biggest fan. I've had really bad back problems for over 25 years, and have gone to every therapist and orthopedic around. Since I've been seeing David every week or every other week for the past 2 years, my back and pain level has improved dramatically. He's changed my life! He really knows what he's doing. He finds the source of the pain, and that might be somewhere I hadn’t realized, but once he's worked on that spot I can tell it’s where the pain had originated. He attends expos and conferences to stay up on the latest therapies and treatments. He uses an infrared sauna and the hyper volt on me sometimes too, it's a kind of vibration therapy that increases circulation. As David has taught me, it's all about circulation! He isn’t into treating pain with drugs; rather he encourages healing and stretching and exercise. He's so humble and truly cares about his clients. He works with young athletic people/teens too, doing recovery for sport athletes and helps in preventing injuring and gaining strength. My daughter plays volleyball and she and her club friends do recovery with David regularly. David is so important to me that if I thought about moving out of town, I would miss him and his therapies terribly. That’s how much of an impact he has on my quality of life. Living pain free makes my life better.
Thousand Oaks - July 4, 2017
I went to David for a sports massage at Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks last Saturday. He is an AMAZING massage therapist. Very knowledgeable, talented and friendly. I will definitely be going back for more massages to help my tight running muscles.
Thousand Oaks - June 22, 2017
I was fortunate to receive a massage by David at Sports Academy in Newbury Park. That was by far the best massage I have ever received. David was very attentive to my shoulders and neck-exactly as I requested. His pressure was perfect and he was able to release much of the tension that was built up providing me with much needed relief. 5 stars for sure, I highly recommend David!
Newbury Park - June 21, 2017
What a great massage Dave gives. He's very knowledgeable and a master at his art. Beyond his gifted hands, he is the nicest most professional guy. I'd go again! Highly recommend!
Woodland Hills - June 19, 2017
Dave does outstanding work!! He has improved mobility for me and my father. Dave is very friendly and professional. I have been recommending him to my friends for years and they all LOVE him and the work he's done to improve their condition.
Woodland Hills - June 15, 2017
I cannot say enough great things about David. My search for an outstanding massage therapist was over 2 years ago when I met David and had the best massage ever and since then it is always the best of the best every time I go. Never once a disappointment, it is always awesome! He is very professional and also a very kind and good person. David knows what he is doing. It is not just a traditional deep tissue massage, it is more than that. He knows about the human body and he can tell right away what needs to be worked on. His techniques are just amazing!! I have upper back pain and neck pain and after David's massage I leave feeling like new. I highly recommend him, I am so happy and lucky I found him!
Malibu - December 19, 2016
As a tennis professional who trains for elite competitions, I feel very lucky to be working with someone of David’s caliber. He has an in-depth knowledge of all the inner workings of the body, not just the musculature but ligaments and tendons as well. He can create treatments that perfectly compliment the rigor of athletic training and is adept at dealing with injuries. He also fully understands the way the body ages. David is very innovative in his application of techniques and is always seeking further education about up and coming therapies. It’s been awesome. David helped me through my World Championship Spartan Beast Race (16 mile race, 35 obstacles, up and down 9600 ft altitude). I could’ve never made it through my without him!
Los Angeles - December 16, 2016
David know how to relax all my tight muscles.
Calabasas - December 12, 2016
I met David about nine months ago. My wife and I both went to David to get massages. She went first and after the massage she gave me a look like “you’re going to really like this!” David does a deep tissue massage, which I really enjoy. He is extremely professional. David knows the muscle groups, the ligaments, connective tissue more than any other massage therapist I have met. He explained the problems I was having in a way I could understand. I’ve been going to him ever since. He was able to work on the IT band, the connective tissue from the hip to hamstring. I feel incredibly great after his massage. I have so much more flexibility. I see him once per month for an hour and I walk out like a noodle. He remembers you and what he did for you the previous time and wants to make sure that it was effective. On a scale from one to ten, David is over a ten! I have had a lot of massages in my life. Most are good but they don’t address the different muscle groups or areas I have issues with. Also, David’s pricing is extremely competitive. I have been to massage where they charge a lot more and I don’t get same get the same value.
Pasadena - December 7, 2016
David’s integrity and work ethic are amazing. I met him because we offered similar services for a chiropractor’s office. I do energy balancing therapy. I got to see David’s customer service with clients, and I also got to see how he was as a coworker—neat and organized. I became a client of his as a result of working with David. David is very patient and respectful, and has a high level of professionalism. His background is in sports and injuries so he is very familiar with how the body works. He often targets specific areas. If my hip alignment is off he will target the massage to that area. He was also helpful as a co-worker. He would tell me where there was a block in the energy in a patient. He is so cognizant of the body and how it works. Even though we are no long working in the same office, I often refer my own clients to him if they need massage. His massages are awesome!
Moorpark - December 7, 2016
About four years ago I could barely move my neck. I couldn’t sleep sometimes because the pain was so awful. I decided to try massage therapy. As soon as David worked on me I couldn’t believe the difference. I have been using him ever since. I can move my neck. I don’t have pain. I have had ten different massage therapists and he’s the only one to help me feel human again. I can’t give enough praises. I am a whole different person.
Woodland Hills - December 6, 2016
David’s services are wonderful. He is an outstanding person with a lot of integrity. Plus he is one of the sweetest people. He wants to do good for people with his massage and his infrared sauna. I try to see him once a week. It’s great. I am a wellness coach and I like to stay in shape. Sometimes you need to let your body rest and get rid of the toxins.
Winnetka - December 6, 2016
I have gotten massages from David for 6 years. He is tremendously knowledgeable. He does an assessment of your problems and makes sure he targets them. He will go the extra mile to research an issue you might have. If you have something he can’t work on he will let you know and make suggestions. Every time I have gone to him with a problem it’s been resolved. Other massages make me feel sore. Even though he goes deep it doesn’t feel that way at all. He uses different modalities, not just one technique. He uses stretching, infrared sauna and different massage techniques such as gua sha that goes deeper into the muscles. I think David is very reasonably priced. Because he owns his own company, he does a lot of pricing packages that are very reasonable. When you think of massage it is a luxury. I am grateful that he makes it affordable for people like me! I was disappointed when I got a gift certificate for Glen Ivy—I didn’t want to waste it so I went, but I didn’t like it after David. He is unbelievable. He can touch you and he knows exactly what your body needs. I wouldn’t see anyone else.
Westlake Village - December 6, 2016
David is fantastic. I met him when he was working at Massage Envy and he very quickly became my favorite massage therapist. I compete in bodybuilding. I haven’t had major injuries, but I was having hip and knee issues and David would work those areas out. He has an infrared sauna and between that and his massage, it has really helped. I also used to have some lower back problems, but he worked on it and I don’t have that problem so much anymore. Sometimes it seems counter intuitive because he will start in a different place than you expect, but he knows the muscles and how they attach to other muscles. He is extremely knowledgeable.
