Khiry Robinson RB - 2016 New York Jets NFL
"Dave was a huge asset to our franchise and more specifically the Sports Medicine Department. Whether it was pre-game or post-game Dave always had the correct skill or technique to keep our players performing at the highest levels possible. Dave was extremely professional and it was my pleasure having him as a part of our organization. I would highly recommend Dave for not just Football teams, but also any high level competetive athlete who wants to be at peak physical condition at all times during and after their season."
Jesse Geffon - Head Athletic Trainer Baltimore Brigade
"I would like to give a big thank you to Dave Reeman and the work he does for athletes. About 4 weeks left in the season I had severely bruised heel and a few messed up ligaments around that area. Dave treated me before the game 3 weeks straight and allowed me to get back on the field without missing a beat. His work allowed me to actively recover during the week and keep the rest of my body ready for each weeks game.
Thanks again Dave!"
Rory Nixon FB - 2017 Baltimore Brigade AFL
"I have received many treatments from Dave while playing for the Gladiators. He has helped me play better and avoid injury. At one point I had a torn pec and wouldn't be able to play for 2 weeks. He worked on me and I was able to play in the next game. What Dave does works."
Larry Beavers WR - 2016 Cleveland Gladiators AFL, Former New Orleans Saints NFL
"Dave worked on me before games when I played with the Trenton Freedom. I had a shoulder issue, and after he worked on me, I got my first one-handed catch. I feel better than I have in a long time. He literally pushes the pain and soreness out of you. Every time he works on me I play better. He worked on me and my teammates when I went to the New Orleans Voodoo, Jacksonville Sharks, and Washington Valor"

I first met him when I played Professional Football, and now he helps me to prepare for Strongman Competitions, His bodywork techniques are very effective for athletes of all sizes.

Shaun Sterling - Owner Bodywize Athletic Development,
"Hello, my name is Bryan Wick, I am a 5 year Arena Football veteran. In 2013, while playing for the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks of the Professional Indoor Football League (PIFL), I met Dave Reeman. Dave came to the organization with one thing on his agenda, to keep players on the field. Arena Football is a rough game, much more violent than outdoor football, due to the field size being half that of an outdoor football field, and the players being equally as big. Less space means more collisions.
Dave quickly became an important asset to the team, and more specifically to player health. Working on players prior to games turned into Dave working on players numerous times throughout a week, at all hours. Dave was willing to come to player housing at 10pm on a weeknight to work out player soreness and stiffness. Dave has an incredible work ethic and treats players like his own. Dave has the ability to be successful with athletes ranging from the youth, high school, college, and professional levels.
Dave’s knowledge ranges from traditional to non-traditional techniques. His use of Russian Massage & Bodywork in athletics is unique and not only reduces injury potential, but speeds the healing process of those injured. Dave focuses on strength and mobility. He uses techniques to help athletes attain, and also regain, flexibility, range of motion, and overall movement, while also strengthening the overall body, using bodyweight and tendon strengthening techniques.
I personally have been lucky enough to have had a plethora of sessions with Dave. Dave helped me regain range of motion in my shoulder mid-season, and got me back on the field after I suffered a back strain. He also helped me recover from severe plantar fasciitis. Dave will expedite the healing process, whether you have tendonitis, a kink in the neck, or a grade 3 muscle strain. I have seen players be told they could not return for 2 weeks, see Dave, and be back on the field in 3 days.
In 2014, while a member of the Harrisburg Stampede of the PIFL, I had an opportunity to work with Dave again, as he joined the staff to handle injury prevention and healing. Dave’s knowledge of the body is incredible and ever-expanding. Many of Dave’s techniques should be seen firsthand, as they are unique, but are incredibly therapeutic. I would recommend Dave to athletes of any age or level."
Bryan Wick OL - 2013 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks, 2014 Harrisburg Stampede
"I can confirm that I know Dave Reeman to be a highly qualified individual in his profession. I hold him in the highest regard for the talent that he possesses when it comes to helping people to reach their body's full potential. Currently, I am the Head Coach of the Philadelphia Hawks Australian Rules Football Club and have had the pleasure to hire him to work on the players on the team. On numerous occasions, the teams' players have benefitted from his expertise. I am confident that he will continue to help the team in the future and trust whole-heartedly that they are getting the best person to help fix and heal any ailments or injuries that may otherwise prevent them from performing at their best. Dave has also worked on me personally on a number of occasions as well, and I trust him completely. His knowledge of how the body works and what it is truly capable of is astounding. It’s remarkable to have learned what Dave has taught me about my own body and how I can apply simple stretches and strength exercises to help me perform at my best on a consistent basis. I highly recommend hiring him for both his knowledge and his talent.
Jon Loring - Head Coach, 2014 Philadelphia Hawks ARFC
"Im in my 6th professional football season and Dave's Russian Bodywork techniques are some of, if not the best, I've come to know. Nothing of what he does is textbook or "normal," but it
works. And it works wonders. My body feels rejuvenated. I've been performing at a higher level and I wish I'd have come in contact with Dave and his techniques much earlier in my career. My
personal favorite is when he legitimately 'walks' the bad out of your body. As an athlete, I HIGHLY and FULLY recommend you get in contact with Dave and hire him for what he does. Dave's
services will help you tremendously. Simply put, what Dave does, works."
Chris Schubert WR - 2014 Harrisburg Stampede, 2014 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks PIFL
"Dave is great at what he does. I had the pleasure of getting worked on by him for 2 years while playing professional arena football. I dislocated my shoulder one week, and by the next week I played. His techniques are very unique and effective. I would recommend him to anyone with any issues."
Elliott White - 2013 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks Player, 2014, 2015 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks Coach PIFL
"Pre-game warm-ups and preparation prior to games and practice improved tremendously with the help of Dave. It has become a must to see him. Dave made a world of difference, improved my performance, and was a big help in injury prevention as well."
Jerrell Jones WR - 2014 Harrisburg Stampede PIFL, 2015 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks PIFL
"In high school I suffered a back injury playing sports that limited my physical performance, and became a recurring problem in my life. After working with Dave numerous times, the physical difference is nearly unreal. I have less tension and stress within my back, and feel the best I ever have! I would highly recommend Dave Reeman, this guy works magic!"
Will Mattis - Manager, ASI Panthers AIFL
"I was playing football for the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks in Bethlehem, PA when I first met Dave. Dave was a truly generous man who was willing to give his time not only whenever he could, but more amazingly, whenever one of our players needed treatment, Dave would make it happen. Dave's techniques are unique and highly effective. They really allow the individual to take control of their own healing through the catalyst of Dave. He is a very well-versed individual in his field of study and tries new or different things in order to get results. I appreciated Mr. Reeman's time and effort during my time in Pennsylvania, and would recommend his services to anyone who wants a willing and committed individual to getting you healed."
Hunter Wanket QB- 2013 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks PIFL,2015 Trenton Freedom PIFL
"Dave uses a unique combination of healing not only with physical treatment, but also with the mental aspect. Dave helped me recover from a knee injury so quickly I never even missed a practice. I continued to work with him throughout the entire season and he kept me injury free and at the top of my game. Dave also teaches you to use your mind and always believe in yourself, and visualize yourself healthy and successful. I would recommend Dave to anyone, and I'll continue to work with him in my career."
Thomas Gilson WR - 2013 Lehigh Valley Steelhawks, 2013 PIFL Player of the Year

Progress has been noted in strength and flexibility for many individuals. At the end of each class, clients are asked how they enjoyed the class and what they liked specifically. The most common answer is “everything”."
Ronnie Pozzi - Director of Client Services
" Dave's bodywork has helped to improve my overall athletic performance, and has helpred me to prevent and overcome injury. He has found and helped improve physical issues that traditional
physical therapy with multiple chiropractic and massage sessions was unable to resolve.
He doesn't just treat the symptoms but helps you find the root causes and issues. Dave consistently has helped me and others I've referred to him to learn more about our bodies and overcome prior injuries so we may build a stronger, longer lasting mind and body."
Scott Mulvaney - Crossfit Athlete
"Since working with Dave the quality of my life has significantly improved. I used to suffer from knee pain and a tight back daily. Now I hardly ever have pain and if I do Dave has shown me what I can do to relieve it. My fitness and breathing has improved as well. Dave really knows his stuff. I highly recommend that anyone comes to see Dave for any issue, be it an old injury or just a desire to move more efficiently."
