Myffie James graduated from University of Canterbury in 1988 with a BSc in Biology, she then trained as a teacher graduating in 1992. After enjoying a busy few years teaching and travelling, children occupied a large part of her life from 1997.

During this time she continued to develop her massage skills and became passionate about Holistic Pulsing. In 2004 she graduated with a Diploma from the NZ Holistic Pulsing Guild. She is now a contracted teacher to Holistic Health Training Ltd. Cranial Sacral Therapy and Hakomi Psychotherapy training add depth to her work with clients.


The Hakomi method of psychotherapy overlaps the principals and methods of Holistic Pulsing. In 2014 she graduated from the NZ Hakomi training and is currently working towards Certification in the Hakomi method.

Myffie continues to practice from her home clinic in Stoke, Nelson. She teaches workshops in Holistic Pulsing, mostly in the South Island and runs Retreats.
