Students have traveled from around the country to study with him. James worked a long time as a full-time medical massage therapist at Millennium Health and Wellness, a chiropractic/physical therapy/fitness center, helping patients rehabilitate from injuries, illnesses and disabilities. James and his students love Thai Massage because it gives them more ways to help their clients, and provide them with more lasting relief from pain and tension.
The versatility and power of Thai Massage, using feet, knees, forearms and hands on a mat on the floor, in more positions than on a table, empower them to work smarter, protect their bodies, and prolong their careers. James is eager to provide you with the highest quality and excellence in Thai Massage, as well as table massage modalities such as deep tissue, sports massage, medical massage, and injury rehabilitation massage, always in loving kindness and the “true spirit of Thai healing.”
