Massage entered my life at the age of 15 to support my body in my training to become a professional dancer. Over the course of the following 20 years I experienced a wide array of healing techniques, from osteopathy to acupuncture, chiropractic, cranial osteopathy, shiatsu… as well as counselling and various energy healing modalities. Following my own experience as a patient and with an accrued understanding of the many dimensions of health, I decided to acquire the skills to become a healer myself and trained at the Chicago College of Healing Art in Chicago, IL (USA). There I completed the Massage course in 2005 followed by a training in Structural Therapy in 2006 and have since practiced part-time in conjunction with a career in Arts administration. I believe in the healing power of gentleness and abide by the Hippocratic Oath ‘First do no harm’. It is my greatest pleasure to provide the conditions in which healing and growth can occur, according to each patient’s specific journey.

James’ favourite mantra is: ‘The best foundation you can ever invest in, is the one that fully supports your wellbeing.’ His passion for manual therapy was unearthed after a hiking incident near Xi’an China.

Ever since, James has developed his technique and skills, becoming extensively trained in: Holistic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Seated Acupressure Massage, dry needling and Remedial & Sports Therapy Massage with both ITEC level 3 and BTEC level 5 qualifications. James is in his 4th year studying a Masters in Osteopathy at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine.
