TESTIMONIALS

Having had experience with many different bodyworkers, David's technique is certainly unique. There are levels of healing he achieves I've never seen before. This is clearly a result of a vast knowledge of anatomy and physiology combined with decades of hands-on experience.

Director of Inner Balance Med, Wellesley, MA

I have worked with many soft tissue therapists over the years. David Scott Lynn is the only one educated and skilled enough to do what I want with full confidence the job will be done. My patients definitely feel the difference.

Dr. Gary Fujinami, DC

Doctor of Chiropractic / Martial Artist

David's seminar was a great functional anatomy review for me. It has given me new insights into my patents' chronic postures and how to help them better. It's a great adjunct to chiropractic and bodywork.

PHILOSOPHY & SCIENCES of Clinical / Medical Massage Therapy, Structural Bodywork & Yoga Therapy

What They Don’t Have Time To Teach Us In Massage Therapy School . . .

Why DSL Edgework Is A Leading EDGE System of Therapy . . .
A SUPERIOR UNDERSTANDING of Knowing How It Works Tells You How To Work It!

After recently attending a 700 hour massage therapy curriculum, I realized there was almost NO explanation of exactly HOW basic medical & physical sciences applied to evaluation & treatment of the human body. Especially with soft tissue therapies. I also noticed there was NO providing of an underlying philosophy of how everything — the sciences, the evaluation process, the treatment techniques, your attitudes & perspectives as a therapist — worked together.

Yet it was a particular philosophical basis underpinning my own yoga & bodywork teachings as far back as the mid-1980s that my students thought was critical to their understanding & practice of soft tissue therapy. It is the underlying philosophy allowing you, among other things, to work with more complicated cases not fitting neatly into the routines or protocols some schools and trainers do provide.

I Promise You'll Gain Superior Insights, Knowledge & Understanding of how the human body functions in health and in breakdown, and how soft tissue therapy actually works.

You too can become an EXPERT in neuromuscular & myofascial physiology, discovering how to effectively Analyze Structure & Posture for more more precise treatment strategies. Such knowledge & insight — and underlying philosophy — is Essential to discovering the best ways to develop your SKILLS in reducing or resolving a Client's C.E.M.&.N.T. — or Chronic, Excess Muscle & Nerve Tension & Stress — with Hands-on, Soft Tissue Release Techniques and/or Postural Yoga Therapy (Conscious Stretching).

C.E.M.&.N.T. is a Primary Source of many problems of the human musculoskeletal, neuromuscular & myofascial systems and is the primary focus of the DSL Method of Therapy, in both the hands-on work or postural yoga. Learning the DSL Method, and incorporating the sciences, principles & philosophy into your current practices, help develop YOU into a Superior Therapist.

For Practicing Massage Therapists / Bodyworkers

YES, I'm an already practicing Massage / Bodywork Therapist. I'm looking to Take My Practice to a Much Higher Level and become a Highly Trusted & Valued Resource for my Clients & Community.

Please Tell Me More about how DSL Edgework can Expand & Deepen My Insights, Knowledge & Skills, Helping Me Become a Superior Soft Tissue Therapist?

How Yoga Teachers / Yoga Therapists Enhance Insights & Skills with Bodywork Sciences & Principles

In the field of Soft Tissue Therapy, many, if not all, of the relevant sciences & principles of effective, mindful bodywork apply DIRECTLY to teaching yoga or providing yoga therapy.

Especially knowing how the nervous system connects everything together, and realizing yoga postures, like hands-on therapy, are primarily means by which to "talk to the Client's (or Student's) nervous system & brain," can produce profound results for the Client and Therapist, the Student and Teacher.

And of course, much of what makes Yoga "Yoga" is the integration of meditation & mindfulness into the physical practices. It's also known as "conscious stretching." Discovering how to address mental & emotional processes of Students and Clients — and our own — is an important element of effective bodywork, yoga and yoga therapy.

DSL Promises you'll have a Superior Knowledge, Deeper Insights, more Effective Skills, after learning even the basics of DSL Edgework.
