Dave is a graduate of the Stillpoint Program at Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The Stillpoint program is a 750-hour, ten-month program accredited by the Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA), an independent accrediting commission of massage therapy education institutions and programs. COMTA is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Dave achieved a 4.0 grade average and Dean’s List achievement recognition award upon graduation. Not bad for a guy who hadn’t been in school since 1973! Dave is pleased to serve the gay and bi men’s community. Male touch is a powerful and healing gift.

Dave’s training combined with his innate intuitive nature uniquely qualifies him for this work. Dave’s philosophy is that the body, mind, and spirit are intricately intertwined components of the whole being. If any one part is out of alignment all three suffer. By assisting in bringing the body into balance, the mind and spirit benefit as well. Dave honors all those who arrive on his table with an individual treatment plan based on input from the client and what he feels with his hands when the work begins.

Dave is especially interested in the neuro-muscular techniques of Slow Passive Joint Movement and re-patterning work where muscles are taught to let go of their tension through slow, gentle and soothing passive movements of the shoulder and hip joints.

Dave is also trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release techniques. Let him custom design a massage for you!

Guest Reviews

Revived, Renewed and Definitely Refreshed!

This was my sixth consecutive visit to Frog Meadow Farm (FMF). I had thought I’d take a break this year and try a different B&B or venue, however the siren call of FMF beckoned me back!

This visit I was entranced by the pastoral visuals and sounds which I experienced: A doe nursing a newborn fawn; honeybees collecting nectar; chipmunks playfully scurrying in the garden; and the syncopated rhythm of frogs croaking in the distance. And yet its always the astute and accommodating innkeepers, Dave and Scott coupled with their impeccable B&B and well manicured gardens that are the main draw!

All the guests this time around were returnees and it was like a gathering of old friends where each person was given special treatment and attention. Scott and Dave are the consummate innkeepers. They run a tight and efficient ship, the grounds, guest rooms and facilities are impeccably maintained. The breakfast is delicious, hot and filling and the hospitality couldn’t be better.

I suggest making a reservation during one of the special community events which they host on the grounds like June’s Pride Month Potluck Dinner that drew approximately 65 guys from the surrounding region. You’ll have a wonderful time meeting new and interesting people and enjoying a buffet of culinary delights!

Honolulu, Puerto Vallarta, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Fort Lauderdale and Provincetown are all tempting alternatives for my summer retreat, however 2015 will once again bring me back to Newfane Vermont to be “revived,” “renewed,” and “refreshed” at Frog Meadow Farm!
