I highly recommend, without reservations therapeutic massage sessions with James. He is highly skilled and professional from the moment you walk into his serene environment and throughout the session. Every massage therapist I’ve seen over the decades provides different techniques (which is great!). I highly encourage you to experience treatment from James, especially if you have acute or chronic aches/pains which you would like to work towards a solution to resolve. You deserve to feel good and your body will thank you for the time invested with James.

James is a very gifted and skilled massager. I came in for some deep tissue work. James was excellent! I’ve already had my second massage. 😊

The facility was spotless and soothing. I was comfortable, as James offered warming blankets. He is a skilled professional who explained certain muscle and nerve groupings. Overall, a satisfactory experience.

James is very professional and is willing to take the time to give you some additional pointers on keeping the body healthy .

James is one of the best technical masseuses I've experienced. He really knows the how to target focus areas and find release with a range of technique applied as needed. I have been working with a chiropractor and like to incorporate massage therapy to assist in the process of restoring the body through relaxation.

Excellent massage. I’ll be booking another appointment soon. James has very skilled hands and knows how to release the areas of tightness.
