Growing up, James Dowling watched his family suffer from chronic illnesses, and even battled his own pain, for which Western medicine gave little relief. His investigations led him to an interest in drug-free and tactile therapies. He enrolled at DoveStar Institute to study under reiki masters, and earned his massage-therapist license, colon-hydrotherapy certification, and reiki mastership. At Phoenix Holistic Center, he balances bodies and minds through diverse methods such as sound therapy and kriya massage, which incorporates one continuous stroke that only ends when the therapist's arms become tangled.
