About James

Jim's desire to facilitate healing in others led him to the Humanities School of Massage in Pinellas Park, Florida. He graduated from the program in 2003 as a Massage Therapist with a certification in Neuromuscular Therapy. In 2005 he became a certified Reiki Master of the Usui Shiki Ryoho lineage and a certified Medical Massage Practitioner. Jim opened his own successful medical massage practice, working with a local hospital, physical therapists and other healthcare practitioners.

Jim's career is not limited to his experience in Florida. He traveled to New Mexico and started his own successful practice, Mobile Medical Massage, in the village of Cloudcroft while simultaneously working at the Lodge Resort and Spa. Jim has been the lead Therapist at the Spirit of the Mountain Spa since November of 2006. In 2009, Jim, together with his partner Robin Faux, created Lightbulb Moment Seminars, a continuing education business for massage therapists. In 2016 Jim opened up Cloudcroft Therapeutic Massage. He is currently a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association. Jim is also a recurring guest speaker at MTTI in Las Cruces, where he is able to impart his extensive knowledge in the field of therapeutic massage on upcoming massage therapists.

With his diverse background and training, Jim has developed an effective style of therapeutic massage, tailored to each client for optimal treatment results.
