"Most musicians who train to become professional players, at some point in their lives, have to deal with the issue of injury. I am no exception and have suffered with chronic tendonitis and general weakness in my wrists since my teenage years. I have always been told that it’s something I’ll have to ‘manage’ for the rest of my life and it wasn’t until I met James that I started to believe differently.
Unfortunately, spending extraordinarily long hours sitting at a piano has also had a detrimental effect on my overall strength, stability and balance of muscle development. To add insult to injury, I’ve also had ‘dodgy’ knees for the past 7 years. After several people recommending James to me, I had a session. I’ve had many sessions with physical therapists of varying kinds, but have never met one like James. His quiet, thoughtful and calm personality was accompanied by a direct and assured approach to his modality, and I knew instantly that there was real knowledge and a deep understanding of the body behind his touch.
Prior to meeting James, the tendonitis I experienced would flare up every couple of months or so. Since having sessions with James over the past two years, I’ve had only one minor episode and, after a session, it disappeared the next day. My body is better aligned, in much better balance, and I have found that I heal much faster than I used to.
James’s work is remarkable and I strongly recommend anyone whose career relies on optimal physical performance to visit him for sessions.”
