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

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!

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.
