About JP Holistic Therapy
Nature has an immense energy to it. And we humans are a part of nature. When we use these energies in a wise, efficient, and constructive manner, we can reap impressive benefits. I consider the experience of healing and promoting wellness to be chief among these benefits, and I am dedicated to helping others by harnessing these energies in a healthful, responsible way, to promote the whole health (holistic health) of others. My name is James Poole, and welcome to the website for my holistic therapy practice. As of April 2016, I am located in Metabief, France, but I travel for clients often. I am available for appointments locally for Emmett therapy (also known as the Emmett Technique), therapeutic essential oil consultations, and Reiki healing. I also have a Store page where you can order my home-made, natural essential oil-based products directly, which I make fresh and without harmful chemical additives. I provide nutritional therapy consulting to clients all around the world, as well as customised health reports that show you how you can easily improve your health with specific nutritional and supplement guidelines.
One of the chief physical ways I use this energy to help my clients is called the Emmett Technique. It is a gentle, non-invasive physical neuromuscular release therapy that I first learned in Australia. It shares some similarities with physical therapy, acupressure, reflexology, and Bowen Therapy. What I love most about the Emmett Technique in particular (really it’s a series of dozens of specific, targeted techniques) is that it is gentle, can be done clothed, seated, and within one or two short sessions can soften or eliminate some of the most stubborn repetitive stress injuries or muscle pains, often with immediate effect.
I am also a certified aromatherapist. I first learned about essential oils years ago in the United States, when I was researching my own more natural and less expensive solutions for a respiratory condition and some profound sleep disturbances. Lavender and several other essential oils really saved me, especially once I realized just how stressed out I was (I had an incredibly stressful legal job right out of Stanford Law School). Though doing research came naturally to me, as it would to any law student, I knew I wanted to know more, which is why when I quit my legal job in the U.S. and moved to Australia, I decided to undergo formal training in these areas that had meant so much to me. Thanks to this, I've been able to take my experiences healing myself, friends and family, and share them with you!
As part of my ongoing journey, I also decided to learn the art of Reiki energy healing, with a direct teaching lineage to Mikao Usui, and I have progressed through all three levels to become a Reiki master. Learning this method of healing has added another component to my spiritual journey that is deeply rewarding and enriching for me personally, and has given me the ability to share spiritual healing/energetic cleansing with friends, family, and interested clients both locally and around the world.
I also have experience from the United States as a crisis counselor at Stanford University, with relaxation massage and am certified in nutritional therapy. I make all these services available to my clients as they are needed. This is what holistic health means to me.
These time-tested techniques are a proof of the strong link between the cures for human illnesses and the energies present in nature. When traditional methods are intelligently combined with and informed by modern scientific research, the results are amazing. Solutions are - and are meant to be - simple, though never simplistic. My significant experiences and unparalleled zeal for helping others in the past have given me practical knowledge in many different fields, and I’ve found interconnections between and amongst people in all of them - some subtle and some not-so-subtle. In all cases, real satisfaction and optimized productivity in work, relationships, and life require an optimized state of health and well-being for the individuals involved.
I believe that a point comes in everyone’s life where nature remains our last refuge. I aim to help cure people’s sufferings and pains using these proven natural healing techniques, based on a holistic understanding of our profound relationship with nature. My clients’ satisfaction is my object and my guiding spirit in this work. A smile on my clients’ faces helps me sleep peacefully at night. Therefore, I do not compromise on the quality of my services. My gradually increasing popularity and expanding number of clients make me more humble and more committed to spreading happiness and peace in this world.
