Jameson James, L.Ac, M.AmSAT
Acupuncture, Alexander Technique
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.
Jameson practices acupuncture and prescribes herbs to address a variety of issues naturally. He is a licensed acupuncturist in the State of Texas and also licensed in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
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.
MaryAnn Reynolds, MS, LMT, BCTMB
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, TMJ Relief
MaryAnn Reynolds is a licensed massage therapist, board certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork. MaryAnn’s interest in bodywork started in 1996, when an automobile accident left her with a concussion and soft tissue injuries. Unable to find the help she needed from traditional Western medicine, she worked with many practitioners in the healing arts.
One practitioner was a skilled craniosacral therapist, and MaryAnn noticed that each session left her feeling calmer, more centered and resilient.
When seeking a career change, she thought of the healers who had put their hearts, minds, and souls into helping her heal. She enrolled in massage school in 2011.
She took her first course in craniosacral therapy that year and has engaged in multiple trainings since. She’s currently studying Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with Roger Gilchrist.
MaryAnn graduated from The Lauterstein-Conway Massage School in 2012 and from their advanced program in 2015.
As a bodywork practitioner, MaryAnn offers two specialties. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy helps reset stressed nervous systems into a balanced state, a prerequisite for allowing the body’s innate healing capabilities to activate.
MaryAnn also offers TMJ Relief, an integrative modality she developed that combines several techniques to help release tension patterns based on stress, posture, and habits such as clenching and grinding, so that a healthier pattern can emerge.
MaryAnn is a graduate of both the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas at Austin. She is a long-time yogi, dancer, and meditator, and a mother and grandmother. She enjoys gardening and watching birds and loves to spend time off in West Texas and New Mexico.
She has practiced in West Lake Hills since 2016 and is delighted to join West Holistic Medicine, working alongside Dr. Ashley Maltz and Jameson James, LAc, to also serve downtown/central Austin.
Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT)
Hayley Gibson is a certified Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) practitioner, empowering individuals and sharing tools that lead to wellness. After discovering powerful tools that greatly improved her physical and emotional wellbeing, she knew this was something that must be shared with others.
She’s incredibly grateful for this technique and how it has transformed her high stress mindset and provided her with tools to deal with anxiety. She is here to support you and guide you through your wellness journey, help you transform your negative beliefs and find more meaning and purpose in your life.
AFT is also beneficial for working through limiting beliefs and areas you may be stuck. Grounded in neuroscience, AFT combines proven psychological principles with aromatherapy in a specific way to shift your mindset. Hayley finds it most fulfilling when others have breakthrough moments using AFT.
When not working with clients, Hayley enjoys yoga, hiking, kayaking and baking.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Stopping by to express my gratitude and honor to have found Dr. Maltz. She is absolutely amazing, she is so caring, personable, kind, and so attentive. I went to her bc I had severe constipation, IBS, gut issues, you name it! It has not been even 1 week following her recommendations and my symptoms have improved dramatically. She is a gem and I have no words to express how much she has helped me in such short period of time. Dr. Maltz has a very dedicated team of people who go above and beyond what is required. THANK YOU!
I have had an exceptional, transformative experience at West Holistic Medicine with Jameson James. Every session has been carefully curated to address all of my needs. Jameson has gone above and beyond to treat me with his vast knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and other healing modalities. [...] I can honestly say I feel more balanced and pain free than ever before. I am so grateful and appreciative what acupuncture has done for me. You will definitely be in good hands with Jameson.
A true healer in Austin. She is warm hearted, caring, very experienced and full of wisdom. I have gone for 3 visits and each one has left me feeling phenomenal. I had feelings of feeling much taller and elongated, oxygen flowing through all of my body like it was getting a fresh breeze of air everywhere in my body. TMJ session that helped open up my jaw that has been tight for years! If you are looking for some healing, MaryAnn can help you exponentially!
