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.

James really takes the time to listen to concerns and really takes pride in what he does and it most definitely shows. My massage with James was one of my best experiences. James is a exceptional massage therapist and I truly appreciated all he had done for me and most definitely would recommended to others????

The process was explained very well and there was plenty of room for questions. The process was thorough and highlighted some things that I did not know. James is a fine practitioner in all respects. I will continue to get this work done.

Great as always!

James takes the time to find out what I am experiencing and assesses what treatment is needed each time. He also educates me on what is going on with my body and how I can improve my situation. His knowledge and skill is extremely advanced.

I absolutely love James. I have been seeing him for years, and I won't go to anyone else! He is attentive to my issues and helps with muscle soreness, stiffness, decreased range of motion, and has even relieved sinus pain and congestion when I was sick with a head cold! I recently saw him and had a session with the focus of craniofacial techniques to prepare for a big certification test that I had to take. And I passed! Ok grant it I had to study, but James was able to help me relax and his techniques helped me focus! Thank you James!
