About

"Pain is simply the body's way of saying, 'something is wrong, please pay attention!'."

This 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, ...

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.

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.
