Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner @ West Holistic Medicine
Jameson James, L.Ac, M.AmSAT is a graduate of the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, the New England Conservatory, Alexander Technique New York City, and the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine. He combines over 10 years of study and practice of acupuncture with 10 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, balance issues, lack of coordination, the ‘fear reaction’ triggered by change, and voice problems. In addition to training and licensing in Traditional Chinese Medicine, he has learned some ancient Japanese techniques–including pediatric Shonihari with Sensei Koei Kuwahara, Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture with Martha Lucas, and Neoclassical Pulse studies with Dr. William Morris.
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 Southwestern University, the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble, or even in the office. When he is not working with patients, he loves to swim, run or hike in the Greenbelt with his daughter and oversized puppy, Layla.
