Originally from New Jersey and with a sports background in football and track and field, I decided to combine my passion for anatomy and kinesiology by obtaining my certification from NCBTMB after completing coursework at the Virginia School of Massage in Charlottesville. I specialize in providing relief with sports massage as well as other massage techniquesincluding Swedish, Deep Tissue, Medical and Trigger point. I have created a comfortable environment that strives to educate patrons on the importance of body awareness and the benefits of massage. I have worked with various athletics programs, including Track and Field, Women’s and Men’s basketball, Football, Swimming, and Tennis teams. I utilize my knowledge of sports-related injuries to assist athletes in managing injuries and to educate them on ways to improve whole-body movements, in order to decrease the potential for further injuries. These skills of awareness are beneficial to all, not just athletes. 
I am committed to educating people on the benefits of massage and to help integrate massage for a better quality of life.

The massage was amazing. I felt fantastic afterwards. I explained to Jarrel the issues I was having and he concentrated on those areas as well as a few others he felt needed attention. It really made an incredible difference. Will definitely have to make this a regular session.

As always Jarrel is professional and is very knowledgeable about how the muscular-skeletal systems work together and ways to improve movement. Highly recommend him!

Jarrel's massages are great. He is very knowledgeable. I appreciate his deep tissue massages after cycling.

Jarrel is really personable and immediately made me feel comfortable, He is an EXCELLENT masseuse and immediately figured out the deeper reasons behind all my aches and pains. 24 hours massage and I feel great--usually I am sore in a not great way, but not today!

Jarrel is incredibly knowledgable, personable, kind, and a truly gifted massage therapist. I also hope to go to him at some point for bodywork, which he took the time to explain to me. The 90 minute relaxation massage was incredible, and I felt more relaxed and slept more soundly that night than I had in weeks. I was also very grateful that Jarrel participated in Lyme Warrior's fundraiser (to raise $ for Lyme Disease research), which is how I heard about JLA. He's a great guy with a soft spot for important causes, and he's a very skilled massage therapist.
