Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Highly skilled and very knowledgeable professional. I trust James as part of my health care team.

    I was very happy to have seen James for a 90 minute, deep tissue massage. He was communicative and thorough in his technique and I'm looking forward to seeing him, soon.

  • 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!

  • 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!

    ABOVE AND BEYOND AMAZING !

  • James is a true experiences therapist who is healed. He provides the benefit of deep disciplines with gentle movement.

    Very knowledgeable and professional

  • 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!

James Fritschle is more competent than most orthopedists in my experience. He spends time actually determining the nature of the problem, likely causes and providing recommendations on exercises, icing, heat etc. for you to implement. .

It was my first appointment with James, he made sure to find out where my problem areas were and any history I had with injuries. My session was customized based on my intake interview and was exactly what I needed. James was thorough and checked in regularly to make sure I was comfortable and to explain any observations he made during the session. James is extremely knowledgeable about the body and what can happen during stresses we put upon it while exercising or doing an event such as a triathlon. I highly recommend James.

I tell everyone James is magical. I frequently stress my body (not just muscles, but ligaments and tendons) due to overuse, and James never fails to get me back in working order. He has an extensive knowledge of the human body and the interconnectedness of our systems, personal experience as an athlete who understands stressors induced from intense training, and a gift for finding inflammation and stimulating healing. And he moves mountains in his schedule to squeeze me in when I whine-text him with my latest injury. I recommend James to all my friends with sports-related injuries.

My massage was absolutely fantastic. James was very knowledgeable about the muscles most susceptible to tightness and soreness and the imbalance that triathletes experience because of our workout schedule of swimming, biking and running. He especially worked on the tightness in my shoulders gently but effectively. I have had massages before that the therapist alleviated some of the tightness but was very rough and uncomfortable. I definitely plan to continue scheduling massages with James.
