Fabulous! 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.

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.
