Jim

Owner

Jim has been a massage therapist for more than 26 years and has been teaching massage techniques for 20 years. Jim noticed that some of his students were ending their massage careers, not because they wanted to, but because they felt their bodies could no longer preform a quality massage. Jim realized that many of these therapists were leaving the profession because they had not utilized body saving techniques. He saw many therapists using only their hands and fingers and not using their forearms. With this in mind, Jim developed Forearm Fusion. This method uses the hand, forearm, and elbow to provide a therapeutic massage.
