David Zulak MA, RMT, author of Assessment for Massage Therapy: a practical guide (Handspring Publishing 2018), has been a massage therapist since 1994, and an instructor since 1996.

David has a wide and diversified knowledge base. He has not only been an instructor at several schools in Ontario, Canada, He has also been the director of the massage therapy program for two schools, and for one of these he wrote the complete 2200 hour massage therapy program.

Over his teaching career, he has taught almost every course given at a school of massage therapy. However, his focus and interest has always remained anatomy, treatments, techniques and, of course, clinical assessment skills. Presently, David only teaches seminars for practising massage therapists, along with sustaining a busy clinical practice in Paris, Ontario.

Since graduating as a massage therapist, David has pursued instruction in all osteopathic techniques, and in osteopathic principles and theory, totalling well over 700 hours of post-graduate education. He has been using an osteopathic approach within his massage therapy practice for over a decade, melding the two, with the intent to provide a more comprehensive approach to treatment for his clients. 

This approach to treatment may be referred to as osteopathic massage. It is not merely the addition of popular osteopathic techniques to massage therapy. It is a way of seeing the whole client within the context of their health, and maximizing their own healing abilities. Click the Osteopathy & Massage tab at the top of this page for more on this.
