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.

The best!
by Tom on Jan 19
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!

James isn't just an amazing massage therapist, he's a wonderful human being! His hands are great, but so is his heart.

Seriously: how does he know exactly where the pain comes from and how alleviate it? I feel like I could walk in, indicate nothing about what I’m feeling, and he would find what hurts and fix it. That sounds like crazy hyperbole, I know, but seriously: James has a rare gift.

As always the most amazing massage

James is a gifted therapist. He has the ability to treat and relieve the specific area(s) of distress and a big picture understanding of the body’s muscular-skeletal systems. ????

James is the most gifted masseuse I have ever met. Have had hundreds of massages and could not possibly recommend James highly enough as a masseuse and as a wonderful human being and healer.
