At Relief Therapy Solutions, I am dedicated at providing you the best Myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and other helpful services to aid in pain relief, stress release, and over all to feel good.  I listen to your needs at each session, because I believe you are not the same person you were yesterday, today and going into tomorrow.  Treating and believing the pain you are in and looking else where for the cause, is what my goal for you.  Not only relaxing from stress with massage therapy, but getting deeper into what is causing what is happening and starting to correct issues with myofascial release, craniosacral therapy and kinesio taping.  


My Myofascial Release (MFR) utilizes the John F. Barnes approach to treating pain and dysfunction.   Myofascial release (MFR) is a gentle and effective hands-on therapy that applies myofascial stretching to eliminate pain, restore range of motion, and function when other treatments modalities have been temporary or ineffective.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) utilizes the Upledger approach with the combination of MFR to help facilitate underlining restrictions.  This is a gentle, hands-on approach primarily using the head (cranium/cranio) and tailbone (sacrum/sacral) as areas of focus through the spinal cord.

As you allow yourself to feel the pain and soften into it, your authentic healing happens as you unwind and release into which binds you.  Releasing that straight jacket feeling.  Myofascial Release allows authentic healing, for a lasting change, in a gentle, non-invasive manner.  

I look forward to helping and aiding in what causes lack of health.

IASTM is from the founders of rock tape. IASTM ( instrument - assisted soft tissue mobilization) focuses on mechanical model of adhesion reduction and tissue proliferation. But it's more than that also the brain and connective tissue or fascia. It's the neurosensory system which plays part in tissue integrity and movement.

I left feeling better! Thank you James!

He is awsome.

James has been very helpful, even before I actually saw him for treatment. I emailed about my headaches and he emailed me back a lengthy response with some suggestions on things I can do immediately to try to alleviate my pain. Then when I did see him, he listened closely and looked at my concerns from a holistic perspective. I’ve seen him three times now, and I definitely have seen a lot of improvement. He’s awesome, and he explains what he’s doing and how that is helping. He has helped me see how my headaches are affected by everything else - the way I sit, stand, etc.

Absolutely felt entirely relaxed and was able to have him work on some very stiff muscles. Always professional and caring

James keeps me moving. I call him my muscle doctor. With MS, degenerative spine, and pelvic floor issues he is the only person that actually keeps my spastic muscles functioning. So I can function 😎🌹🙏
