REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Fitness services

by Bethel on Oct 23
I think 5 stars across the board covers it!

James definitely knows what he's doing and is eager to give tips and tricks to do at home to ease pain/irritation!
by Patrea on Oct 05
From the moment we met until the very last minute of departure, James displayed nothing but the best example of professionalism one could want. His knowledge and his skill were stellar. He volunteered all kinds of additional tools I could use to improve my health, including everything from nutritional information, other treatments available over-the-counter (which he added to at a followup phone call), to at home exercises and stretches to improve flexibility, balance, strength, and coordination. Initially, he questioned me and listened carefully for probably a full 45 minutes. His insight was keen. And I haven't even mentioned the massage yet, which was truly outstanding. I needed deep tissue work prescribed by my internist, and he provided just the right balance needed. I would recommend him without ANY reservations. In fact, I already have!

James was extremely knowledgeable about the lymphatic system, and his gentle approach was very relaxing. During the massage, he taught me several exercises to do at home to help with my problem areas. I’ll definitely be back for a deep tissue massage soon! I would recommend him 5/5!

Recovering from an auto accident and was still sore and beat up. James took extra care to work within my pains and discomforts, leaving his session feeling much better. I will be using James again and again.
