Helping you Relax, Regenerate, and Find Relief

Dealing with muscle pain, stiffness and soreness??

You have come to the right place.

James Fritschle LMT (pronounced Frich-Lee), Licensed Massage Therapist, loves using the skillful application of massage to help people find relief from their complicated musculoskeletal aches and pains.

  • He keeps current on medical research to both balance and inform his 20 years of experience of practicing and teaching medical massage therapy.

  • You won’t find him using doing voodoo or waving healing crystals, but some people swear his massage techniques work like magic.

  • Massage and bodywork is what he does for a living (to pay the bills, mortgage, buy groceries). Although massage will not make him rich, he finds his work greatly rewarding.

A simple, yet expertly applied massage, can change a person's life!

  • James is a male massage therapist. It is estimated 85% of massage therapists in the Untied States are female; get this, a century ago it was just the opposite.

James does an excellent job at communicating, assessing and educating his clients, giving them peace of mind.

Excellent customer service has little to do with gender and everything to do with trust. His practice is built upon professional communication and trustworthiness.

  • Consistently providing great massage & bodywork while managing a small business is indeed physically and mentally demanding. Therefore, James is committed to a healthy lifestyle and habits. That means, he treats his body as a temple and practices what he preaches.

James leads a health focused lifestyle, not only so he can daily deliver the best care to his clients everyday, but for decades to come...
