Life is a Verb!

There is something compelling about being able to put my hands on people and make them feel better.

While I was formally trained at the National Holistic Institute in San Francisco in 2009, I have been giving massages my whole life. My mother tells stories of back rubs I gave at age of 7, and my college friends fondly remember study breaks with shoulder rubs and hand massages to keep us all going.

It is something I have always chosen to do, and to make it my career seems pretty magical. ...

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Jesse on Apr 22
James is always kind, courteous, and friendly. His studio is warm and inviting. And he’s extremely skilled in his massage skills. He doesn’t just remedy the symptoms, he solves the underlying problems.

James is simply the best

James is always totally in tune with my current aches and pains, explains the potential source of the problems, and deals with them with great results.

James took the time to get to know my ailments, talk about potential causes and approaches for finding relief. The massage targeted exactly what I needed and I left feeling so much better than when I walked in! James is kind, gentle, and very thorough in his work!

I have known James for three years in the capacity of our work together with cancer patients, with whom I saw him do his healing work in an incredibly warm, caring, compassionate, and intuitive way. Yesterday I finally had the opportunity to experience his wonderful bodywork first-hand, and it was amazing. He helped me shed months of tension with a mix of modalities, and I floated away a lighter, more relaxed, centered me. His new space also adds to the experience. It is truly an urban oasis and a magical space to spend time in as he heals your body. Can't wait to visit again.

Always precise, always on point. The best masseur for aching muscles and a heavy-load workouts. The antidote to my, admittedly, stretch-lacking workout routine.

Your technique is unmatched and fantastically effective every time!!! And I just love your new space.

Best massage ever. Located all my knots and coaxed them into surrender.

Amazing job prying my butt muscle off my spine!!! And for being a great thought partner in making positive changes in my life!

James is a pro with strong hands, keen listening, intuition and deep skills. This kind of body work has the ability to go way deeper than everyday stress, it can truly be transformative. James went deep into some places I had been holding old stuff, holding patterns from injury and emotional stuff... Much had been moved and I felt renewed upon leaving. Magick happened. James knows how to communicate with fascia!. So grateful!
