My style of massage combines tools from multiple techniques woven from within the intention of full integration within the fluidity of the client’s re-integration.   My bodywork tools include Reiki, Esalen, Swedish, Shiatsu, and Deep Tissue massage; Qigong; and the knowledge and respect of anatomy.  I listen to the client and we engage to identify the ‘what where and how’ to focus, whether a relaxing full-body massage experience with fluidity and strength, possibly combined with energy work, or along a continuum of more focused and customized therapeutic approach to address specific issues.

 

I am a practicing healing facilitator utilizing my tools with the benefits my meditation practice within qigong and yoga to support my client’s best interests.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Jennifer on Jan 01
I've been seeing James regularly for a little over a year how. Today he gave me a hot stone massage, and it was wonderful. He is great at working with my body to focus on what needs the most attention and is good at listening to my body as the massage progresses. He is able use a variety of styles (Swedish, Esalan, Hot Stones, etc) depending on my mood or body on any given day, which is great. He also encourages me to continue my focus on healing outside of our sessions.
