About Us

Logo

The calling into massage therapy has taken me on a tour of disciplines. Each of my career path choices, from service, to my hours of pre-chiropractic study in Biological Sciences, to a Bachelors degree in Psychology has helped shape my understanding of health and wellness. And each choice has brought me into alignment with the strong, intuitive healer that I have always been.

My style of bodywork can integrate elements from several traditions, including Swedish, Thai, shiatsu, deep tissue, and myofascial release. The goal in our session is to find the right balance that will offer you therapeutic and restorative relaxation. I also continue my training with Dr. Fred Mitouer in Transformational Bodywork, addressing physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual traumas and where they ...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Speechless. James has a truly astonishing gift for this work. He's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I'm on the old side and have seen countless massage therapists over the years - but the skills of even the best of those does not approach the abilities James possesses. I know it sounds like hyperbole, but it's true! He's amazing. THANK YOU JAMES!

    I don't like how full up you get because then I have to wait that much longer to see you again, haha!

  • James has been working with me since 2012 and through rugby injuries, car accidents and old football neck injuries, he's always getting me back to a space where I can freely move and relax my muscles & joints. He "listens" to both my body and me :)

    Great massage.

  • James is great. He is good at finding areas that need work - areas I wasn't even aware. He has helped me with some old injuries too. I am definitely going back.

    James has the experience, skills and intuition to zoom in on wherever needs attention. A bodywork session with him is "intense" at times, and always leaves me feeling much better than when I came in. He's a healer!

  • Everything was absolutely fabulous! Thank you, James! I feel like I have a new body!

    Awesome!! As usual :) Another chronic issue fixed by James and his magic hands.

  • After leaving the session, I felt better than I have in weeks. James was very thorough in asking specific questions about areas I wanted to work on plus he continually asked for feedback regarding my comfort levels during the massage. Looking forward to my next appointment!

    James is a fantastic therapist! He's always very responsive to my body, and has both finesse and strength in equal measure.

James performed really intense deep tissue work in the areas of concern, my shoulder and upper back. The massage was very painful but James talked me through it and let me know what he was doing, building trust and helping me to relax. He talked about his work as a collaboration between the 2 of us to change the paradigm of my body. Immediately after the massage my arms and fingers tingled with new sensations and increased blood flow. A few days later 75% of the discomfort I felt before the massage was gone. Definitely the most focused and effective bodywork I have ever had.

Great experience and am very optimistic now about finally healing from a very bad neck/shoulder injury. James is friendly and knowledgeable and his space is warm and welcoming. Very pleased with pricing on the 10 session package I purchased!

After James finished I felt broken in all the right ways. I highly recommend his massage services. And for those who are spiritually inclined, James is fully familiar with the body's chakras and energy paths too.

James has found what needed to be worked on. Our last session in particular was rewarding. It seemed like so many places were unlocked. I felt lighter, felt like I could really move again. It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to many more.
