Dave has been serving the men’s community for over 10 years. 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.

About Dan’s bodywork techniques:

  • We are pleased to welcome Dan Roden as an additional massage therapist at Frog Meadow. Dan joined our team last year and his presence greatly expands our offering of bodywork modalities.

    Reiki (Ray-Key) is an ancient, gentle, hands-on healing art that helps you feel better and heal better. You can use Reiki to facilitate deep relaxation, relieve pain, and promote healing and personal growth. Reiki stimulates your body’s innate healing resources, encouraging a return to wellness. Through a series of gentle, powerful hand placements, tension, stress, and pain melt away. Major systems of the body are given concentrated life-force energy, enhancing the body’s inherent power to heal. Reiki can restore the flow of energy with this unique approach to treating acute or chronic pain. This healing treatment moves energy to depleted areas, relieves sore muscles, and produces a soothing and meditative state of peace, calm, and balance.

  • Positional Release Technique (PT) skillfully combines the application of two well-established and clinically recognized neuromuscular treatment approaches: strain-counterstrain (SCS) and muscle energy technique (MET), specifically developed to address chronic and acute neuromuscular pain, and improve muscular-skeletal function and range. This gentle, effective therapy increases range of motion and relieves muscular pain due to injury, stress, repetitive strain, postural distortion, and chronic neuromuscular conditions. With a focus on the close relationship that musculoskeletal imbalances play in the development of general and localized pain, PT delivers simple, therapeutic self-care techniques that help identify and correct muscular imbalances and effectively hone in on many of the root causes of pain.
  • Reflexology targets pressure-points to restore the flow of energy throughout the body. The treatment usually focuses on the feet, but it can also include the hands and ears. Reflexology is a therapy that is intended to heal the person as a whole and not simply address perceived symptoms.
  • Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury.
  • Trager approach helps release deep-seated physical and mental patterns and facilitates deep relaxation increased physical mobility, and mental clarity.

Utter Comfort and Happiness!

Just back from a refreshing, sybaritic weekend with a group of friends at Frog Meadow in Newfane, VT, just north of Brattleboro.

The property, a good 1000 feet above the nearby Rock River, up a very long but well-graded [no worries at all about a lowslung city car in summer – ask the owners in heavier-weather seasons] unpaved country road, is a stunning hillside meadow and lush country garden/orchard site crowned by a warm, handsome, beautifully crafted post & beam house full of amusing art & folk-art (and for-real, not kitsch, except where intentional and very funny) and diverting books. Hiking (and winter X-C skiing/snowshoeing) trails ring the place, and there’s a fun dammed farm-pond (with frog population) for floating in inner tubes or taking a swim on a hot day.

The beds are among the best I’ve ever slept in and the whole place is spotlessly clean and bright and cheerful, perfectly maintained by the hosts – great guys; more to follow – and their invariably smiling and friendly support staff.

The wood-fired wooden hot tub out on the lushly planted stone terrace is a particular joy, especially on a starry night, with an alfresco shower, well-stocked with the B&B’s proprietary body care products (also excellent) right alongside. Accommodation options range from a very cushy suite in the main house (and two similarly comfortable and generous bedrooms with a shared bath on the landing), to a big cushy deluxe sort of suite over the yoga-studio, which is ideal for a big group of friends.

The most magical option, if one is willing to (faux) rough it a bit (given the indoor plumbing is all up at the main house) is the “Brookside Cottage” – a lovely little wood cabin with sash windows on all sides perched right beside the burbling brook that falls through the site, at the end of a couple of hundred yards’ walk (perfect for all needed privacy) down a stonewalled garden path. I stayed here on an earlier overnight visit in June, with the sound of the brook through the open windows and fireflies dancing outside all night – couldn’t ask for a better mental reset. Of the options around the Brattleboro area for gay travellers and possible devotees of Rock River, this is the most sybaritic option, yet entirely reasonable at a price equivalent to, or actually a bit better than, what any of the utterly bland corporate chain hotels around charge for an OK but plasticized, utterly generic room and prepackaged breakfast.

Contrast that with owner Dave’s French toast and pancakes with local maple syrup and country bacon, made while you watch (and enjoy yogurt, fruit, coffee as a warmup), all garnished with fresh berries and nasturtium blossoms from the garden (when in season, of course). No contest – now that I’ve found Frog Meadow, I’ll never stay anywhere else when in Brattleboro. Host/owners Scott & Dave are super-nice guys, welcoming, smart, very knowledgeable about local history and activities. They excel at putting their guests at ease, and are also perfectly discreet and not in anyone’s space if that’s more the guest’s mood: it feels like visiting the country place of particularly skilled and sensitive hosts.

We are all the richer for the fact that these guys have decided to open up their home to a wider circle.
