James was wonderful, very professional. He was very gentle in the spots that were causing me discomfort. I woke up the next morning and felt amazing.

James is very professional and gives a great massage. His skill and intuition gift him with an ability to zero in on trouble spots and know how to work them out. I'm most pleased.

I like that I could fall asleep, because I was so relaxed.

I loved coming back to see you. I look forward to developing a relationship with you. You're very intuitive and I can't wait until you know my body better. Also I'm really interested in the hot stone massage. I slept really well last night and stretched this morning. Looking forward to coming back!

He will customize your massage to you and your needs. He genuinely cares for his clients and I am never let down.

James is very talented at massage therapy and relaxation. I could actually feel the tension resist and melt away in a few specific problem spots. He's great at taking feedback, and he gives very helpful advice for stretching, etc. A+
by Terence O. on Apr 07
James was courteous and respectful. His aromatherapy option made the massage that much more relaxing. He was very skilled and responsive to the tension in my back. His professionalism was impeccable and when we discussed future options he was extremely informative and had many wellness options to choose from. I was thoroughly impressed with his practice and recommend it strongly.
by Tim G. on Apr 04
James is good and responsive when the pressure is too much, but the white noise machine and music sometimes aren't cooperating, which can be distracting.
by Cliff M. on Mar 26
Liked the rapport I've developed w/James. I can say "please just focus on my back and shoulders" and he accomodates. My only dislike is that I can't expect the massage to last 6-8 hours like in my dreams :)
by Dan S. on Mar 24
Perfect amount of pressure, lots of attn to trouble spots, smart/professional guy...one of the best LMT's I've ever worked with. An added bonus? He's a yoga instructor!
by Mitch C. on Mar 10
The massages I get are always truly amazing! James has a true gift. I always leave feeling lighter and balanced and relaxed.

The massage is so great that I am willing to drive far. After the massage I am so relaxed and it showed as well. James knows what he is doing and he is the only one I go to for a massage.
by ANDREW B. on Mar 04
Great massage, always a top notch experience
by Ken S. on Mar 01
James is fantastic! He's very accommodating. He was able to get me right in for a spur of the moment appointment. He was able to work out all my knots as well as give me some stretches to do that would help me in the future.

The level of pressure was spot on, and there were checks mid-massage to see if the pacing was to my liking. A great relaxing and professional experience!

He is friendly yet professional. Strong hands to knead your muscle aches away
by Aaron M. on Jun 19
James is incredibly attentive and has the ability to vary pressure and technique to deal with all of my knots and tough spots.
by Christopher S. on Jun 18
It was good. No complaints
by Aaron K. on Jun 17
Checked in often on pressure and showed me stretches to help ease my muscle tension.
by Michael B. on May 29
He has a way of finding the problem spots I don't even know about.
by Chad W. on May 27
James is a wonderful massage therapist and always has tips for stretching I can do at home to supplement his body work.
by Joseph L. on May 26
Outstanding throughout, made me feel welcome and relaxed from arrival, asked questions about my comfort throughout without being intrusive or disturbing. Came away feeling very relaxed and pleased with the experience.
by Brett I. on Apr 02
This is the first time ever that I've had a massage in which the next day after the massage I still felt better AND relaxed. As always, I'm also impressed by James' skill and professionalism.
