David O’Quinn LMT

Oregon License No 27241

David O’Quinn graduated from the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork in 2001 specializing in Structural Integration. Some of his other massage training includes Swedish, deep-tissue, myofascial release, Thai, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Hawaiian Temple Lomi Lomi, shiatsu, craniosacral therapy, Chi Nei Tsang, and Service Through Touch – presence-centered massage care for home bound, hospital/Hospice patients.

In addition to his private practice on Kauai, David worked for a holistic medical clinic for five years as a massage therapist, an Ayurvedic practitioner and a colon hydrotherapist before joining Siskiyou Massage in Ashland.

David has been a holistic practitioner since the early 1980s, serving as a teacher and an intuitive channel. At the time, he specialized in trauma-release therapy and alternative therapies for patients diagnosed with degenerative disease. He served as a case manager for an HIV/AIDS service organization on Kauai and has been a volunteer for Hospice and an AIDS caregiver. While serving on a board that organized the startup of an HIV/AIDS service organization in Fayetteville, Arkansas, he co-authored a volunteer training manual, which included a section on alternative therapies for AIDS.

Before his studies in massage, David earned a degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and became a Reiki II practitioner. Other training at the time included hypnotherapy Rebirthing, Trager therapy, and Touch for Health.

David is a quiet and intuitive integrative therapist. His job, he believes, is to listen to the innate wisdom of the body and allow it to guide his hands during the session.

I discovered David when he was new to Siskiyou Massage, and I’ve become a devotee. He is a healer and a superb listener. I always feel 100% after a session with David. He gets to the root of whatever the injury, malady or weakness is. It’s remarkable! Highly recommended.

Good things have been said.

David was wonderful! Perfect pressure, relaxing and helped my problem areas!
