James is both a massage therapist and a manual osteopathic therapist, and has a passion for holistic health and an ambition to learn. He graduated in 2015 from MH Vicars School of Massage and again in 2020 from the Manual Osteopathic College of Canada (MOCC). He has recently retired from municipal government work as a civil engineering technologist for transportation and engineering services, and is excited to enter this next chapter of his career.
James has completed his certification in the techniques level in Upledger craniosacral therapy (CST-T) after having studied extensively with the Upledger Institute (see here). He is also part of the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators (IAHE) as a teaching assistant. His passion lies in craniosacral work, with visceral manipulation as a close second, and he has taken Craniosacral Therapy for Pediatrics in March 2011, and Craniosacral Therapy for Pediatrics 2 in September 2012. He treats newborn babies up to 6 months old, and will refer out to another practitioner for older children.
James is fascinated with the light touch techniques that have created profound and lasting results with his clients. He is often able to assist his clients in achieving deep releases, which facilitates their healing journey back towards a more holistic state. His long term goal is to continue teaching with the Upledger Institute and eventually become a full time educator.
