James did a great job assessing and addressing a lower back pulled muscle issue I was/am experiencing at this time. He came across as genuinely caring about my pain and helping me to alleviate the issue both short and long term. I would highly recommend James to anyone needing massage therapy.

Outstanding job with the massage. Appreciate that James took the time to explain how to better address issues myself. As an athlete he understands movement and causative factors for pain/injury. Very helpful.
