Light to Very Firm Pressure

James Arbuckle specializes in Relaxation Massage, Targeted Therapeutic Massage, and Thai Yoga Massage. James is a whiz at blending the best of relaxation and therapeutic work– it feels non-invasive but is highly effective at eradicating problem spots. James keeps his massage moving, using a lot of Swedish gliding techniques mixed with pulsing work over tender points and stretching. James’ style is the closest to traditional Swedish and Deep Tissue work.

With Thai Yoga Massage, he combines energy balancing, advanced stretching, and rocking techniques to promote overall well-being.  James has a reassuring touch and, while he can deliver very deep pressure, he is highly capable of easing up for those who prefer a lighter pressure.

Since graduating from the Richmond Academy of Massage in 2000, James has studied Reflexology, Thai Yoga Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release and Medical Massage Techniques. He is licensed through the Virginia Board of Nursing and is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.

When he’s not being a licensed massage therapist, James spends quality time with his family, geeks out on computers, and enjoys a nice slice of pie every now and again.

I have been getting massages for a number of years and I am very particular in choosing a massage therapist. I can honestly say that James is the best I’ve found. I generally get a 60 or 90 minute whole body massage and James has the perfect technique. He always seems to know exactly the right pressure and ensures that I have a thorough massage every time. I leave feeling completely relaxed! As long as James is performing massage, I will not go anywhere else.

With James I never get the same massage twice. He is always learning and applying new techniques. It is wonderful as a client, but also speaks to his genuine interest in massage therapy and health. James is also a lovely person to talk to but is not offended if I need a chat-free session. I highly recommend him.
