The Zenthai Shiatsu community and Gwyn’s mentorship was the beginning, as well as the sustaining thread, for my career as a professional manual therapist. I love how we support each other in going deeper into the world of bodywork and being able to offer more energy and presence to clients. Since finishing Zenthai training I have done diplomas in Remedial Massage, Shiatsu, and nearly completed Myotherapy, as well as building a stable business in West End and a new clinic Samford. I love returning to the same Zenthai techniques and discovering them afresh: bringing renewed nuance, precision and relevance to every touch.

Where can I find Dave?

Dave is available for Zenthai Shiatsu and Myofascial Release at Red Door Therapies in West End and Soma Therapies in Samford. On Saturdays Dave offers treatments 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.

Dave says…

Like many others, I first experienced Zenthai walking the dusty (or was it muddy) roads of Woodford.  Out of the messiness of my world I beheld a space of calm and self-discipline.  I said to myself, ‘Do yourself a favour Dave – go and hang with those guys’.  Zenthai entered my set of life priorities.  In two years it rose to the top of the deck and I found myself making regular pilgrimages to Mt Ninderry.

What others are saying:
“My ache is not back!  It was a very enjoyable and effective treatment.  My body is still feeling much better aligned a couple of weeks later and continues to come into better balance”.

Des Tramachi,  Client

“I must tell you I no longer suffer from sciatica….  I absolutely attribute this to the work you did on me.  Thank you…thank you.”

Dane Yoeman, Client

  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. He is a great listener if need to 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. I would highly recommend Dave to any one who needs in depth holistic healing sessions. 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.
