James Murphy, LMT, Massage Therapist
James Murphy (known affectionately as Murphy) is a licensed massage therapist with over 9 years of hands on experience. He graduated from Cortiva Muscular Therapy Institute in 2008, and went on to study under and work with one of the most renowned therapists in downtown Boston. He has experience working with all types of clients, from those just looking for a bit of relaxation or to relieve some tension to athletes and those suffering with acute injuries. Recent clients include dancers from the Boston Ballet, elite Runners World athletes following the Boston Marathon, Ivy League swimmers and indie favorite musicians at the Boston Calling music festival.
Murphy has a foundation in a number of different modalities including deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, therapeutic/relaxation, sports massage and active release. He draws on his experience with different types of clients and therapies to create a unique combination of techniques to meet each client’s specific needs. He also draws from his experience with the practice of yoga to introduce some of the principles of alignment and stretching he has found complementary to his client’s bodywork needs.
When he’s not massaging, Murphy can be found outdoors–rock climbing, snowboarding, surfing, hiking, camping and (of course) practicing yoga!
