Hi, I’m David Morgan, a licensed massage therapist, bodyworker, yoga facilitator, and Reiki practitioner. I have a private practice inside Balanced You Studios on Bearden Hill in Knoxville, TN.

I specialize in post-op lymphatic drainage massage, wood therapy and body sculpting>, and have certifications in a number of other modalities, including Thai massage, manual lymphatic drainage, cupping, hot bamboo, hot stone, deep tissue, lomi lomi, prenatal massage, and more (see below).

My goal is to support your health, healing, and well-being by creating a massage treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.

Whether you have a physical issue, like limited range of motion or nagging hip, back, or neck pain…

…you have pain and swelling from cosmetic surgery…

…or you need stress relief, detoxification, and energy balancing through intuitive, therapeutic touch…

You’ve come to the right place.

Here’s what a few Knoxville massage clients have to say about their experience with me: (Find more massage reviews here.)

  •   I had an excellent massage! David consistently checked in to see if the pressure was right and he really found some tight and sore muscles. It is one day later and I feel so much more able to move those stiff joints.

    Kate S.
  •   An amazing difference between the local massage store and a professional who knows what he is doing. David is very personable, considerate, and thorough. It’s amazing how good you can feel and function again. And this review is from a 72 year old woman. Best gift my husband ever gave me.

    Carol P.
  •   Wonderful experience with my Reiki Massage. Thank you!

    Paul D.
  •   David was very professional and accommodating, making sure to check comfort levels along the way (important for my prenatal massage). Looking forward to the next appointment!

    Krystle K.
  •   David was awesome. He was able to work me into his schedule quickly and I felt like he listened to me in order to address my needs. He was very professional and made me feel at ease. I have received many massages in my life and I feel like David is a gem of a therapist!

    Jennifer L.
  •   David’s style of massage was better than advertised. With chronic back and longstanding flexibility issues, I have had good body work before - but what I experienced with David was different and much better than anything else I had ever experienced. You can tell he cares about his work and trying to be as helpful as possible to his clients.

    Doug B.
  •   David certainly tailors the massage experience with excellence
    to the individual. He is a great communicator -- quick in setting up an appointment time as well as sensitively communicating and listening attentively during the massage itself. The experience was excellent and reached beyond any expectations. I highly and unreservedly recommend David Morgan as a caring and professional, devoted to his clients' needs.

    Linda H.
  •   I am impressed with David's experience and unique way he combines yoga and massage together. I am always in a altered and relaxed state when I get off the table. An experience that goes beyond just wonderful!

    Gina M.
  •   I was very impressed and enjoyed my massage with David. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He was able to give me insight to some problems that I was having and suggestions on what to do. Which helped tremendiously.

    Billie c.
  •   David is a wonder worker! After only one visit my sciatica is much better. Looking forward to next week.
    Good session and so much more than I expected.

Unlike most massage modalities, in Thai yoga massage, the muscles are not rubbed. Instead, the Thai yoga practitioner compresses, pulls, stretches, and rocks the body of the massage recipient to relieve tension, remove blockages in the recipient’s sen lines of vital life force, and restore balance and harmony.
