In his work, he refers to the same science that provides the
foundation for modern clinical medicine. Jim lectures widely
on the energetic phenomena taking place in the therapeutic situation.
He has developed useful insights that can help all therapists
better understand and advance their work and explain it to others.
His many scientific papers have been published in the world's
leading journals. And, to learn about the theories and practices
underlying complementary methods, Jim has both taught and attended
classes at various schools around the world, and experienced
a wide range of bodywork techniques.
