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.

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.

I would not know what to do if he ever left town. I have found nobody who could ever replace his skill

As always, James found the trouble spots and dug in to work out those kinks! I walked away feeling happy, relaxed "lighter" and much better all over.

Amazing skills! No one has ever treated me so well and addressed the root cause of my pain. James definitely knows the body and how it functions. He is Leaps and bounds above any other massage therapist.

I feel better just walking into James' place. Cozy and comfortable, it immediately takes me away from the daily grind. A massage from James is amazing. He really gets into my sore muscles and shifts stuff around so that I'm better aligned and balanced. Plus James knows how to help me with any emotional piece that comes up. He's insightful and wise. I always walk out renewed.
