Licensed Massage Therapist. A graduate of the Virginia School of Massage, I am certified to practice by the National Certification Board for Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and licensed by the Virginia Department of Health Professions. I am a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) and am fully insured. I am trained as a First Responder and Wilderness Rescuer.
Certified Lymphatic Therapist.  In August of 2018, I trained with Carmen Thompson to become a certified lymphedema therapist providing clients with detoxification massage via manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and treat patients with lymphedema and other swelling issues. 
Acupressure Master. Unique to my practice, I routinely include acupressure during your massage session. Acupressure often provides immediate relief from acute or chronic pain and enhances any massage modality.  I am a certified G-Jo Acupressure Master.
Mobile Massage - Have table, will travel. I also provide professional, mobile therapeutic massage by appointment in the Charlottesville area (city of Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Nelson, Greene and Louisa). Table massage is available in your home, office or hotel suite. Chair massage is available at your place of business, in your office or at your special event.

In 2013, after intensive work experience as a senior massage therapist at the Homestead Resort/Canyon Ranch, I returned to the Charlottesville area to meet the needs of those seeking world-class therapeutic massage services.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Dennis on Jul 07
Jacob tried to do every thing possible to alleviate my discomfort, and I did have less peripheral neuropathy that night in bed. However, some of the symptoms in my leg returned this morning. I had a prescheduled appointment with my chiropractor, and after he stretched my lower back to release some ligaments and also brought my right hip in line, the symptoms eased, at least to this point. My experience is that my right hip retruns to its forward position after a day, so it seems that my focus should be on building up my abdominal muscles and stretching my lower back, while using the Back Pedal device to bring my hips into alignment.
