David has served as the massage therapist for the Colorado Rapids for 9 seasons under my direction. His abilities as a massage therapist are outstanding! His intimate knowledge of anatomy, his understanding of injury patterns and personable demeanor set him apart from the average massage therapist. His ability to work within the medical team assisting the MD’s, athletic trainers, chiropractors and physical therapist speaks to his understanding of the professional sports team environment and his role with the team. David’s skill set allows him to assess, treat and correct injuries and their debilitating effects. His work with our players goes beyond the basic massage techniques and incorporates injury prevention and self care techniques. He is our “go to guy” for all muscular injuries and often assists in post surgical cases as well. Our former players often travel back to Denver just to seek out treatment with him! I highly recommend David as a massage therapist.

We can’t thank you enough for your kind and professional approach to the art of healing. You not only demonstrated how compassion and technique can be incorporated into the practice of Massage Therapy, but you listened and responded to our needs as Actors, Stage Managers and Stage Hands and developed a repore with us that will sorely be missed. On behalf of the entire National Touring Company of “Kiss Me Kate”, I wish to express our deep and genuine gratitude to you and to personally thank you for being not only one of the finest Massage Therapists we’ve had the pleasure of experiencing, but being our friend and representing your field with the highest standards of professionalism. I have taken the liberty of forwarding this recommendation to many of my friends currently touring the country in other Broadway Musical Touring Compaines. I wish them the same happiness as we were fortunate enough to receive from knowing you. Thank you.

From Running with Pain to Completing the Leadville Trail 100
Thank you Boulder Therapeutics for making my running goals come true. Because of the great work of Dave Abookire and his staff I went from being in pain while just walking to finishing the 2008 Leadville Trail 100. After failing to complete my first attempt at running a 50 mile trail run, I turned to Dave to have Boulder Therapeutics be a big part of my training for the 2007 San Juan Solstice 50 Mile Trail Run. And because of this, it was the first time in over 10 years that I ran without pain and successfully completed the San Juan Solstice feeling great! Because of Boulder Therapeutics I did something that I never would have thought possible; I was able to run nine marathons, three ultra marathons (all 50 mile trail runs) and then run & finish the Leadville Trail 100. Thank you for helping me! read more

You have a gift, and the knowledge and expertise that you provide to clients like me is so much more effective and valuable than so many other therapeutic disciplines and providers. I feel very confident in saying that since I’ve seen so many physicians, physical therapists and other alternative care providers since this mess started (many of whom have been very good and helpful, as you know). But if I had to put it into one word, I would say that your care is exceptional (specifically, your knowledge and expertise, results oriented and individualized approach, and understanding of the many complexities involved). And you’re nice!

Boulder Therapeutics exemplifies “healing”. They were a refreshing and welcoming part of my life by teaching me the physiology of the problem and how to maintain a healthy alignment keep the muscle core lose as to not pinch the sciatic nerve. I am back to form, running, playing tennis and any sport I want to play, not to mention I am back to lifting serious weights again. I cannot say enough about Boulder Therapeutics.” read more

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been very appreciative of your care. I am highly recommending you to my friends and fellow frisbee players. You’re the best massage therapist that I’ve ever had and I want to spread that news. Thanks again for all that you’ve done for my husband & I.

I just wanted to say thank you for your help with my leg before the marathon. I had a great experience. I finished the race which I was satisfied with. My leg felt great the entire race, I am not sure I would have been able to do it without the help of you and your team. Please tell them thanks for me. I am hoping to run another one sooner than later so I am sure you will be seeing more of me! Thanks again and have a great summer.

I wanted to thank you for your work so far… My range of motion has already improved dramatically and I had an awesome release in my class today and I know it is from the combination of your work with the yoga…between you and my yoga instructor I just have such a peaceful feeling you both have incredibly grounding and simultaneously uplifting energies!! Lucky me.

I would like to thank you so much for all your awesome help with our teacher trainings. The feedback has been great. People have really enjoyed the (yoga) anatomy classes – thank you for always sharing your amazing knowledge in such an accessible manner.
- Dave Porter, Instructor at Core Power Yoga
I wanted to take a minute and let you know how much the girls enjoyed their time with you at your “Massage Safety & Self-Care” class. Usually, when I ask them to stay late for a meeting it usually doesn’t go over too well. They are all anxious for you to return and have said that they could have talked with you for many more hours. I want to thank you very much. You are a delight. Thanks again.
