My name is James (Jim) DeRusha. I have been a licensed in massage therapist since 1996. My initial massage training was in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at the Florida Institute of Massage Therapy. I had a private office in Florida for 7 years. In 2003 I moved to LA, CA. There I trained with Master Healer Satish Dholakia, to promote greater healing in my massage sessions. I am also an avid bodybuilder for over 15 years. My wife and I recently moved to Nashville where I now provide massage, nutrition and personal training services from my private office in Franklin, TN.
I am also a Certified Fitness Trainer. I owned a one on one fitness facility for 8 years in Ft. Lauderdale. I was trained at Florida Fitness Institute under Dr. Tony Abbott. I have been bodybuilding for 22 years. I had taken a break from being a fitness trainer, but recently have been persuaded to share my knowledge and experience again. Personal training is done at Franklin Athletic Club (FAC). or in-home
I am also a Fitness Nutrition Coach.
I provide massage therapy, personal training and fitness nutrition services and consulting for the greater Nashville, TN region. My intention is to give the best of myself and my abilities in both massage and fitness, I love what I do and am very blessed to work with you. Thank you for your time.
