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.

Structural Bodywork--Advanced Training

Multiple in-depth group sessions with KMI certified instructor Alex Susbauer on pelvis, shoulder, and cervical issues.

Massage Therapist to World Class Powerlifters

My office is located in a world-class powerlifting and strength training gym, Elite Performance Center.

I have helped them to return to top performance and I can help you whether you are a competitive lifter or a computer athlete!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

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.

Knowledgable and self-assured, Freda is solicitous of feedback during session and quick to modify within agreed upon plan.

Jim is very strong and massaged me quite deeply, but he was VERY careful to keep checking with me about whether he was hurting me or going too far. It was the best massage I've ever had. Jim has a sweet and engaging personality, too. The overall experience could not have been better.

Jim was awesome, he listened to what I wanted out of the massage and checked in with me periodically during the massage to make sure I was feeling good. Jim is very knowledgeable and a great massage therapist!
