Dear clients: Yesterday, Weds 14th, my phone was stolen.
This means a couple of things:
- I need your bookings more than ever, to sort this out – my phone was my only Internet connection at the moment; and
- It will be slow to contact me. Please allow ONE FULL DAY at least for a response. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.
New Clients Home Page
Welcome to my bodywork practice! Some of you will have contacted me right away, some of you may have contemplated contacting me for a few months—whatever your circumstances, I’m very happy you’ve taken the first step.
Here is my information at a glance.
For information about me and my experience, as well as my unique style, use the link in the main navigation, above, “About David”.
At a glance:
I am a trained, professional bodyworker for over 30 years, with my main training being in the Japanese style called Shiatsu. I hold a Shiatsu Therapist qualification from Kokoro Dojo, a Toronto school.
I also have trained and qualified in Swedish massage and Thai massage; I have attended workshops held by the Body Electric School, which are general interest workshops and not for accreditation. Please note that I am NOT an RMT.
I do not currently practise a strict form of shiatsu or any type of bodywork; my style is unique and a synthesis of my training and experience.
I offer a mix of therapeutic bodywork and erotic bodywork which is tailored intuitively for each client at the session. You are in control of the session: you can opt for therapeutic bodywork, erotic bodywork, or any combination. We discuss your boundaries at the outset and I respect them.
I do not use a massage table; I use a futon on the floor which is the traditional style of my training in shiatsu. You will find that the set up is both comfortable and intimate, with both of us being equals rather than the “Worker” and the “Worked-upon”.
For my contact and location information, please see the right hand side of this page, where you will find a map and specific information.
At a glance:
I work from my home studio which is totally separate from my living space. I do not share the space with anyone else, and you will have complete privacy and comfort. I maintain the space to a high level of cleanliness and hygiene. I guard my clients’ personal information, such as phone numbers and emails, and you may be assured of my absolute discretion.
I do not book clients back-to-back, so you will enter my space and leave my space without crossing paths with other clients.
When am I available?
Seven days a week, from 8 AM to 10 PM (start times).
Appointments are available after 10 PM, and cost $20 extra in consideration of the late hour.
How to book
You are welcome to contact me at any time, even at the last minute, and I don’t have hard rules about this. However, from experience, some scenarios are likely to be more successful.
Text on the day: Please try to contact me about four hours before you’d like to come. You may contact me with less notice or even very short notice; however, the more notice you give, the more likely you will be to reach me.
Phoning: I have virtually given up phone calls and I have definitely given up voicemail. Please text.
Email: Email is fine, but it rarely works on the same day. Try to email the day before if you can’t text. Again, you are welcome to try.
In advance: You may contact me up to three months ahead of your desired time; however, please note that advance bookings require pre-payment of 50% of the fee as a non-refundable deposit. Of course, if you pay a deposit, your time is guaranteed. See the Fees section, below.
Please call before 5PM if you are booking for the evening. I rarely answer requests after that time.
In calls: (you come to me)
I charge a flat fee of $100 for a 60 – 90 minute session. The sessions are usually closer to 90 minutes.
You may pay cash, or via e-transfer if you have a Canadian Bank; or you may use Paypal, a trusted partner. You do not need a Paypal account, you can use a credit or debit card.
If you book using a credit card, your information is never seen by me, it is processed by PayPal, Stripe or other trusted and reputable third party processors.
Outcalls: (I travel to your home or hotel)
Within the downtown core:
$140 minimum flat fee; I may adjust this according to the time of day, distance, and other factors. Ask me for a quote.
Outside downtown; including Airport hotels and out of town:
$200 minimum flat fee, I may adjust this according to the time of day, distance, and other factors. Ask me for a quote.
If this is all the info you need, go ahead – text me:

or email, bearing in mind the timing :
I’m looking forward to meeting you!
