    Jim went out of his way to fit me into his schedule when I was having severe back pain. He made sure that he understood what I needed, then provided a relaxing and therapeutic massage. After which, he showed me, in detail, which muscles were affecting my current condition so that I better understood what was going on.

    Jim McNamee has been my massage therapist for 14 years. My experience with Jim twice a month is most positive in all respects. He is a holistic therapist, life-giving and -sustaining in his caring approach. Thanks to him, I remain well and deeply grateful .

    I have been seeing Jim since 1987 on a weekly basis, that should be enough said. However he helped me through a healing process after a car accident in 1886 and helps me maintain my flexability. He is simply THE BEST!

    Jim is a wonderful masseuse. He has a magical touch and I feel both relaxed and energized after a session with Jim. He is also a great business manager and very responsive by email and phone. I recommend him often and encourage you to try his service. You will be glad you did!

    If you enjoy deep tissue work, then look no further. Jim is able to zero in on a tight spot and work out the kinks. When I present with neck pain, for example, one session is often all it takes to resolve the problem. Even when I have no particular issues, it’s wonderful to simply zone out as Jim works his magic on my back and legs. Outstanding bodywork!

    I have been a client of Jim's for about 15 years. I am a pharmacist and my work requires me to be on my feet continuously during the day. Not only is my work physically demanding, but it is very stressful in today's healthcare environment. My appointments with Jim diffuse this stress and keep my body prepared to handle the daily physical demands. My appointments with him are something that I do for myself and always look forward to them. I believe they are an integral part of my plan to stay in good health.

    I have been using Jim as my massage therapist for many, many years. I consider him to be very skillful. He has an excellent understanding of the musculature of the body. If you tell him what is soar, or what area of the body is bothering you, he will explain what muscle is probably involved and why. More than that, he has this 'intuitive' approach in his message therapy. The combination of the technical and the intuitive is why I continue to use him. In my opinion, that combination of skills results in a thoroughly therapeutic and holistic experience.

    He has the experience and expertise to work with a wide variety of clients. I have been a client of Jim's for decades and I would recommend him to anyone wanting an excellent massage.

    By any measure I now qualify as a senior citizen. I have maintained good health by a combination of clean living and hard work (LOL), good luck, and, in no small measure, by the monthly tune-ups I get from Jim. He softens and eases those tight and sore spots and I always walk out feeling better. I recommend him to anyone.

    I have seen Jim monthly for over 20 years and my quality of life is all the better for it! He is very skilled; his afffect is courteous and welcoming; his studio is cozy and comfortable. Give him a try, you will not be disappointed! He has spoiled me for any other massage experience because none come close to how he has helped my back and neck.

    Jim is a skilled and experienced practitioner of massage who has been practicing for many years. His attention to client needs provides an individual approach within a context of holistic well-being. I appreciate his responsiveness to specific concerns that sometimes limit my body's ability to function well. Jim's focus, his therapeutic techniques, and the relaxed environment of his practice takes me to a deep, restorative place that leaves me feeling serenely energized. Jim's ongoing professional development enables him to stay current in massage technique and health information important to healthy living. I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a skilled, friendly, and therapeutic massage experience. I think you will be glad you did.
