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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

James save my knees - a never met professionalism will come back soon
by Sandra on Feb 26
James is an excellent bodyworker! A shoulder injury I had for months (in which I feared the possibility of surgery), he resolved within two 90-minute sessions. As a person, he radiates joy and as a professional, he listens, teaches, and heals. He provides recommendations on stretches to maintain progress and is very encouraging and empathic. His office is small, clean and beautiful.

James is personable, professional and knows his stuff. He knows where and what muscles really need attention. I'll be going back!

As always, James quickly finds the places that need attention and works out the kinks! He often also takes time after or before to show specific stretches that will help the problem areas.

My hips have been in such pain, during the pandemic closure. I can now move much easier and with less pain. God I needed that visit.

Amazing! I came in with a bad shoulder that I had been dealing with for months. And in one session he made a significant difference with my pain and mobility. James is the best massage person I have ever experienced! Thank you, James!
