Sports Massage

Dublin’s top sports massage therapist


We restore static and transitonal function through structural alignment and soft tissue manipulation. Which improves neuro-muscular connectivity creating fluidity and spontaneous response in movement. Producing postural rest when sitting or standing in static positions.

Strength and Resilience

Structural alignment and well-produced muscle symmetry will increase natural strength and ability. Kinematic malfunctions create muscle weakness and inhibit anatomical movement. Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve “Strength and Resilience.”


The initial results most people experience is an instant sense of mobility and increased range of motion. This is formulated through various massage modalities and releasing techniques for joint and tissue restriction.

“James is phenomenal in the way he heals any pain you have. I was in constant neck and shoulder pain caused by my job as a dental hygienist. Making that phone call to book my appointment with James is one of the best decisions I ever made…I can never see a regular massage therapist ever again, knowing what I know now…the bodywork techniques with posture corrections and alignment James addresses are brilliant and has rebuilt my faith that was getting worn out by constantly seeing physical therapists, different chiropractors and massage therapists. And to top it off, James is thoughtful, and kind with a genuine heart to add value to his clients’ overall physical health and life.”

“James has been wonderful to work with to help me release years of built up tension in my neck. When I started I was in a lot of pain and now it has released. He has a great gift for finding the problem areas and getting results. I highly recommend him!”

“I recently began running track just for exercise. I ran in high school many many moons ago. I noticed that I was have trouble with my right hip. Something felt tight or stuck. I really wasn’t sure of the problem but was certain from my years of running something wasn’t right. I explained my problem to James and during the assessment he explained how the body works and responds and in comparison the state my hip was in. Every step of the adjustment he explained what he was doing and how it impacted my hip. After one adjustment, I left his office, instantly feeling a difference. I left his office with instructions for stretching and flexibility. He was also kind enough to check the position of my seat in my car. The best part about this experience is after my first lap on the track, I felt the relief and no resistance in the rotation of my hip. I was so excited that I phoned James from the track, literally out of breath, to thank him for helping me. I thought it was age but he fixed it! Thanks! A “40+“ Runner4Life ☺️”
