The Zenthai Shiatsu community and Gwyn’s mentorship was the beginning, as well as the sustaining thread, for my career as a professional manual and movement therapist. I love how we support each other and are thus able to offer more energy and presence to our clients.

Since finishing Zenthai training in 2011 I have formally qualified in Remedial Massage, Shiatsu and Myotherapy. I love returning to Zenthai techniques and discovering them afresh: bringing understanding, nuance and relevance to every touch.

I am currently passionate about monitoring the parasympathic  nervous system (‘rest and digest’).  Understanding our unique responsiveness to healthy stressors like exercise helps integrate these stressors into our body, rather than crash through pain and fatigue.

Where can I find Dave?

During the week Dave is available for Zenthai Shiatsu and Myotherapy at Soma Therapies Red Door (West End) and Green Door (Samford). Please contact Dave or book online:

Online Booking

On Saturdays Dave offers Zenthai sessions at the West End Davies Park Market from 7am to 2pm.  The stall is located opposite Patricia’s Paella Stall near the river. The day fills fast so it can be worth booking ahead. Please contact Dave for bookings.

Dave says…

Zenthai offers more than a ‘new modality’. Zenthai acknowledges the fullness of ourselves. Within the Zenthai space we can accept that which is impossible and have renewed energy for our heart’s desires.

What others are saying:
“Dave is a great listener if need be, his presence in the session is very therapeutic. He brings with him this calm vibration of a healer, which makes you feel that you have nothing to worry about. He is able to work with you at where ever you are physically, emotionally and spiritually. Being both a Body Psychotherapist and Buddhist Psychotherapist myself, I can see how Dave’s Zen-Thai approach is able to address the needs of the client in multiple levels. It is indeed a holistic healing experience.”

  1. I really enjoy my treatment sessions with Dave. Being both a Chinese and a Medical educator myself, I have the opportunity to meet a lot of therapists throughout my life. Dave is definitely one of the most talented therapist I have ever come across. He is in-tune with the client’s body and state of well being. I rarely need to tell him much about what is going on and what need to be done. He is able to intuitively work with my body and release the blockages when appropriate.

Until now I still can’t help to think how lucky am I to run into him on a Saturday morning at the West End Market, and is able to start my journey of inner healing with his facilitation.
