Event Massage--Portland Dragon Boat Races

I volunteered to provide free even massage to the participants in the 2014 Portland Dragon Boat races. This was a terrific experience and I was busy non-stop all day working on the tight shoulders and backs of the rowers.

Massage Therapist to World Class Powerlifters

I regularly consult and design treatment plans for competitive powerlifters, strongman and other athletes. I have helped them to return to top performance and I can help you whether you are a competitive lifter or a computer athlete!

Structural Bodywork and Corrective Exercise

I am a genuine bodywork and mobility geek. I have advanced training in structural bodywork with KMI certified instructors as well as other approaches, including Jon Hart's Interstructural approach. I am an experienced powerlifting coach and specialize in corrective exercise for the older client. I bring to my work a wealth of knowledge and experience designed to help you recover quickly and find lasting ease and strength.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Great location. Good guy who was easy to work with and talk to. We chose to concentrate my massage to a specific area for a specific issue I am having. And I believe that after 2 years of seeing every other kind of practitioner, I actually got some significant relief. Jim is super strong with a good intuitive way of progressing through, while constantly monitoring your level of comfort/pain level. I plan to build on that effort with more time with Jim. Looking forward to it.

1st timer. Used to a more aggressive massage. Jim is very good & I have already booked my next visit. I'm sure that with time we will figure out what is best for me. My current MT recently quit working Saturdays which is the reason I am looking for someone new & his hours are a big plus for me. I am hopeful for a great outcome.

Always polite and professional while being completely honest with you. If you're doing something wrong and need to make a change, he will not only let you know but will also tell you why you need to do to fix it. Always happy to answer questions and educate you on how/why things work to give you a better understanding of what you need to do to prevent future problems.

Old building and windowless front door gave me first impression of "not sure how this will go" but once Jim started working on me it was impressive. He encouraged my feedback and participation in the moment developing teamwork to find and work on areas that needed attention. Asked good questions and gave informative answers. Has great strength and skill. I didn't hesitate to schedule my next session! Thanks Jim.

Strong therapeutic experience

I liked how much he talked about the biology of what was happening with my muscles and gave me simple exercises to do to improve my posture. He was strong enough for the amount of pressure I need and very communicative to facilitate me providing feedback on what worked and anything that was uncomfortable.
