James has a unique approach which has always been helpful to me. He can find those triggerpoints that are causing pain and release them with ease.

I have been dealing with pain in my upper body for many years. James was able to relieve some of that in one appointment. Thank you James!

James was very thorough in his evaluation and used both hands on and mechanical massage to relieve recuperate my pulled Achilles tendon as well as addressed other sports therapy. I felt great the whole day and feel like the muscles fully relaxed. Highly recommended for athletes with sports injuries or recovery.

Outstanding experience in every way! Lovely, soothing environment; over-the-top skill level; and extremely professional. I came to James for a lymphatic massage after surgery. When I came in for first appointment, my arms were swollen, tight, painful. James performed the lymphatic massage with such skill and expertise. I felt relief within hours and immediately made a second and third appt. I’m so fortunate to have found James who brought such relief after a painful sugery.

James listens well and offers therapy specific to the problem I’m currently experiencing.

Neck was in quite a bit of pain going into massage. James loosened it up and gave me advice on how to prevent it from happening in the future. Well worth it!
