REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

I came here for my first prenatal massage and had a wonderful experience. James really listened to the needs I had and addressed all of my pain points. He really loosened up all the areas where I was tight, even where I'm experiencing tennis elbow. He also has the right amount of talking versus silence so that you can really relax. I WILL be back and recommend that you try James as well.

Great massage! Appreciated the focus on my problem areas – both relaxing and functional. Definitely helped work out kinks that had been bothering me for some time.

James is very professional and communicates well. He is strong and can definitely get deep into the tissues to work out knots.

I highly recommend James - I have been following him around for years because he is very knowledgeable and he has the healing touch! I sometimes get him confused with a doctor!

I live in NYC and try to see James every time I come to SF, because he's incredible! Wonderful, kind human who is so easy to talk to, and so professionally skilled. He makes my tense neck/shoulders feel amazing, and I always feel like a refreshed, healthier person after seeing him.
