Later, James traveled to Australia to study with Peter Frazier at Acupuncture College of Australia and followed with Amerasian Institute on the island of Maui, during which time he had the privilege of working in the clinic of Malik Cotter, Maui's legendary qigong and acupuncture practitioner.

During his years in Hawaii, he began to design and use teishins and in 2005, with his student Christian Nix, the idea of teishin courses was developed and the first Teishin Institute courses were formally initiated. Since that time the unique features of this 'lost art' have once again begun to be recognized.
James has taught courses in various countries in both English and Spanish and has written articles about intestinal flora, teishin, anger management, and I Ching
