Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Jarrel is a consummate professional and incredibly talented. He knows so much about the human body and how all the pieces work together, I completely trust him to improve my tension and aches. I can't recommend him enough.

    This is my second ecperience of getting a massage.First in Richmond and second JLA...i loved the feeling I got and it loosen me up and I didn't get sick thanks Jerrel

  • JLA Massage is very professional and experienced

    I requested a firm massage and it met my expectation. I enjoyed the conversation and suggestions regarding how to strength certain muscular areas to reduce fatigue in others.

  • Due to things out of his control, there was a little extra noise but I was able to easily tune this out.

    Love JLA Massage. They are amazing!

  • Music was relaxing, room was nicely set up.

    The biggest problems I had were with finding the location, and once my massage started, the construction outside that was extremely distracting. Obviously these things are largely out of JLA’s hands, and Chelsea said they are trying to move so that the noise won’t be a problem anymore. Overall, it was a great massage and if they change locations I would gladly go back.

  • Excellent service. The setting feels very comfortable and JLA Massage is exceptionally professional. I also like the scheduling software they use and the reminder messages. I have no difficulties with the stairs to the office but suspect that some people may have a slight challenge navigating them. That is just a heads-up -- the massage is certainly worth it!

    Everything was very nice. Upon you'll relocating, the noise will be less. And maybe the room should be a little darker.

Jarrell's skill is outstanding. He can diagnose a problem, often without me even mentioning it and then expertly resolve muscular tensions. He also provides exercises and suggestions in case of more deep-seated or recurring problems. I'd recommend Jarrell to anyone.

I saw this massage on Groupon in January hoping to Get my massage NOW, I paid the $35 and try to make my appointment, there were no openings until February. The Massage was Great, Jarrel is very professional and one of the better in Charlottesville. However after receiving my receipt via e-mail I was billed for an additional $60. Either Get a Massage Now or JLA made a mistake.

I had the BEST sports massage yesterday!! Jarrel tended to my hip that has been giving me trouble. His touch was strong, theraputic and really helped to loosen up the area around the injury. He identified spots that I didn't even know were giving me trouble. I appreciate the stretches and exercises he shared to strengthen and realign my hip as well.

Jarrel is very professional and very skilled!! I loved the massage and will highly recommend him! The place can be improved to give a more formal environment, especially when you get there, since there is no one in the small reception area. Besides that, the personal service that you receive from Jarrel is outstanding.

Jarrel is a professional. I highly recommend him. I like sessions that really dig deep and hard into injured area. He hit found the exact right spots and worked areas that needed attention. Strong hands. Also, offered suggestions on stretching and pain relieve. He knows the body and has done work with UVA sports teams. Jarrel is great.

Jarrel is a true professional. He's very skilled, attentive, knowledgeable, and does great body work. But more importantly, he gives you a plan when you leave ( stretching, exercises, perspective) to get you to, and keep you in a good place with your body's health. So you're kind of getting 2 practitioners in one. Highly recommended!!

Jarrel is masterful at what he does and is a diamond in the rough in the Cville community. A self-proclaimed lifelong learner who continually studies anatomy and massage techniques, Jarrel uses his vast knowledge, as well as an attuned intuition, to get at the root of one's physical ailments. He possesses the strength to get into the deepest and most resistant areas, while also maintaining a continued sensitivity to feedback from the body so that the pressure is never injurious. Jarrel is experienced working with athletes of all sorts and in my opinion could easily be the choice personal masseur for a professional athlete. He maintains an even and commanding pressure as he glides over and into the body's pathways and pressure points. As a 6'5" male with significant tension due to scoliosis, dance, and "tall people problems", I knew I had found the right fit with Jarrel as he could handle what other therapists simply didn't have the strength or knowledge to support. Jarrel has resolved acute discomfort, such as a pinched nerve, or intractable tightness from anxiety/trauma, within a single 90 minute session.
