“Amazing massage!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

So this was my first massage that I have ever received. David made it a very wonderful experience, he was so nice and professional. He did a great job on explaining everything. Since I workout religiously the deep tissue massage really helped my muscles recover and I really noticed a difference in the gym the next day. David is phenominal at what he does, I will definitely be going back a couple times a month.

Thank you for your kind words! Active people require more than just a relaxation massage. This massage is for the person seeking a very deep massage to loosen muscles, promote muscle recovery, remove toxins and soften injured connective tissue. Great for those doing sports, but also helpful to those in recovery from any injury caused by sports or accidents. We use a technique designed to eliminate splint spasm and obtain increased range-of-motion to help you on your way to beating your personal best.

“Amazing, healing massage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

My husband surprised me with a treatment at RestorationSpirit for my 70th birthday. I had the Native American sauna wrap with healing stones. David followed that with a therapeutic massage which was the best massage I've ever had. He combined several techniques including reiki and I left feeling rejuvenated and pain free. He also has crystals, bath salts and smudging materials available for purchase. Just entering through his indoor zen garden is enough to remove stress. I highly recommend David Wells and RestorationSpirit.

“Worth every penny!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

During my recent trip to Galena my girlfriend booked me a deep tissue massage. Wow!!! David was professional, courteous, and came in on his day off to provide me with the best massage I have ever received! I was feeling back in my lower back and after David was finished I felt like a new man! He even took extra time to show me an exercise I could do to help alleviate the pain i was experiencing. Truly a first class experience! John S.

“Best massage of my life!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

When my mom suggested RestorationSpirit during a day trip to Galena, I thought I would be receiving just a regular massage, but the experience I had here was way more than that! I am an athlete with knee and neck pain and David was able to alleviate my discomfort in an hour. I felt great for days after, and I still feel better than before!! I definitely recommend RestorationSpirit for everyone and can't wait to go back! (My mom joined the Membership program, so I will definitely be taking advantage of the reduced rates!!)

“Chakras and Crystals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

David presented an enlightening and very enjoyable half hour about the magical and healing powers of certain stones and their effect on the human body and spirit. Very refreshing, I was impressed by the extensive hours of learning and research David shared with us. Loved the class!
