About the Staff

Hello and thank you for visiting Core Massage!

Core Massage is privately owned and local small business specializing in manual soft tissue rehabilitation and massage therapy.  Owned and operated by David Abbott, I'm passionate and skilled in treating client pain, dysfunction, and posture needs.

As a current faculty instructor in theory and technique at Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy, I dedicate attention inspiring students in their professional skills and in advancing bodywork techniques.

I have spent over 30 years as a competitive athlete and coach in swimming, running, cycling, gymnastics, diving, volleyball, climbing, soccer, and football.  The exposure and success in a wide range of sports has given me a knowledge and understanding of body movement and performance.  Combined with certifications and professional training in a variety of modalities and medically based courses, I use this knowledge, understanding, and experience to cater treatment sessions for all clients.

The human body is highly capable and active--I'm always fascinated by what the human body can do!

Regular massage has immediate and lasting benefits to increase the bodies capability and maintain activity.  Massage can warm up the body and muscles minutes before a competition or workout, as well quickly flush the body of toxins and metabolic waste built up within the muscles, lymph, and blood immediately afterwards permitting the body to recover faster.

I'm very passionate about bodywork and massage, and enjoy helping other people benefit from the health and wellness to be better athletes and maintain their active lifestyles.
