The son of holistic healer and physical therapy pioneer Edward A Snapp, Jr., James Snapp LMT is on his own mission to help others find relief from pain and neurological conditions. Trained in the art of Swedish, deep-tissue, and cross-fiber massage, among others, he puts bodies back into balance and drives stress from taxed minds, calling upon additional services such as aromatherapy and Thai yoga to help set patients at ease.
