Having been born and educated in York followed by a degree in Genetics and Microbiology, James spent a number of years in Japan before returning and eventually training as a Remedial Massage Therapist. With his scientific background James joined the Northern Institute of Massage in 2007, and under the tutelage of many renowned practitioners (including Eddie Caldwell) he qualified as a Remedial Massage Therapist in 2008, and then as an Advanced Remedial Massage therapist in 2014. At Hamlynn Health James now works alongside a number of other therapists including his mother who manages (owns) the clinic and who has been a Remedial Massage Therapist for over a decade.
To extend the range of treatments he is able to offer, James is now studying to obtain a Diploma in Sports Therapy with the Society of Sports Therapists.
James is a fervent believer that patients should not rely solely on the treatments they receive at the clinic, but that they should be given advice so that they can understand how to manage their own bodies at home if they so wish. To achieve this, James is very keen to educate his patients and to suggest small life-changes they can make, so that they can better succeed in achieving the needs of their bodies. James acknowledges that to be successful, any changes need to fit into the patient’s life-style rather than trying to make the life-style fit around the changes.
The ultimate aim is to have patients needing less major treatments so that their condition can be regulated by fewer planned routine treatments. For further information on these treatment types
