David Bender, LMT

David first became fascinated with the human body while working in the operating room at Carlisle Hospital in the mid to late 90's as a Sterile Technician. He was lucky enough to observe a wide variety of surgeries but his favorite was always the orthopedic cases.

It wasn't until 10 years later that he discovered the benefits of massage and how it could be used as a tool for recovery and performance while competing in endurance mountain bike races.

In July of 2008, with the encouragement of his wife Sarah, David enrolled in the Massage Therapy Practitioner program at YTI Career Institute in Mechanicsburg, PA and graduated top of his class a year later. After traveling to client's homes with his massage table for a year, he found a permanent home for his practice at Simply Well in downtown Carlisle where he has been ever since.

One of David's passions is working with athletes to help them achieve peak performance, prevent injuries, and speed up recovery between workouts. He also treats a multitude of conditions such as sciatic pain, headaches, plantar fascitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome and many other orthopedic conditions.

In his spare time, Dave enjoys mountain biking, skiing, road cycling, hiking with his dogs, cooking, and homebrewing. He and his wife own Miss Ruth's Time Bomb and produce the Market of Curiosities.
