“What I find special about James is not only his gentle and effective touch, it’s the confident way that he locates the exact site of the injury and begins the treatment immediately. He exudes true confidence in his therapy, he will tell you “it’s not me, it’s the therapy that works, and I’m just the facilitator”. After my treatments, I feel totally nourished in both body and spirit. He is a healer in every sense of the word.” – Margaret Mundy.
