Jameson James, LAc

Doctor of Chinese Medicine

As a Doctor of Chinese medicine, teacher of voice and the Alexander Technique, and former opera singer, Dr. James takes pride in offering an integrated approach to healing. Through the combination of acupuncture, moxibustion, guasha, cupping, Chinese herbs, Alexander Technique, qigong, and voice work, he strives to provide optimum healing for his clients.

Dr. James is a graduate of the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, the New England Conservatory, Alexander Technique New York City, AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine and Five Branches University. He combines over 10 years of study and practice of Chinese medicine with 15 years of Alexander Technique teaching experience.

His journey into integrative medicine began with personal challenges– to improve his mobility, pain and singing. He studied Alexander Technique as a tool for his own opera singing and then trained to teach the technique at AT-NYC under John Nicholls and Nanette Walsh. Jameson uses the Alexander Technique to address the root of habits which often lead to disease. By improving breathing, posture and movement, the technique can help relieve back pain, neck pain, headache, stress, improve mobility, resolve balance issues, address lack of coordination, lessen the ‘fear reaction’ triggered by change, and alleviate voice problems.

In addition to his doctoral training and licensing in Traditional Chinese Medicine, he studied ancient Japanese techniques–including pediatric shonihari with Senseis Kuwahara and Manaka in Japan, Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture with Martha Lucas in Boulder, and the Shen/Hammer school of Neoclassical Pulse studies with Dr. William Morris in Canada.

On a personal note, Jameson loves opera. In fact, he lived in NYC for nearly ten years singing and studying with some of the best in the world. Occasionally, you will hear him sing with some local opera groups and even in the office. When he is not working with patients, he loves to cook with foraged mushrooms, tend to his flock of chickens, sing opera, run or hike the trails, or even practice some yoga.
