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!

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+

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.

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.

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 :)

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!
