Apolo Zamparelli

Orthopedic and Sports Massage Therapy

What do you want to experience in your body, mind, and spirit?
Is it a freedom from discomfort related to too much or too little activity? 
Or perhaps is it too much tension related to life's stresses?
Do you have a chronic injury that you've either been ignoring, or haven't been able to receive proper help?
How do you want to feel after a massage therapy session is over?

Other than my very comprehensive education at the Florida School of Massage, I am trained in advanced sports massage techniques...

Other than my very comprehensive education at the Florida School of Massage, I am trained in advanced sports massage techniques, clinical and rehabilitative techniques, Thai massage, Reiki, and am always learning new modalities/techniques.

I have been an elite level athlete for the majority of my life (triathlon, track), earned my Bachelors of Science in psychology at The Florida State University (with a focus on Sport Psychology), am a coach/personal trainer, and received an amazing massage therapy education at the Florida School of Massage. My background has been preparing me for this very moment – to provide the highest level of massage therapy and orthopedic exercise to those in need.

I look forward to working with you!

Thai Massage Certification

This is a comprehensive 108-hour course at The Bodhi Sangha School of Thai Massage in Gainesville, Florida. The certification emphasizes not only the very unique sequences of manual techniques associated with the healing art of Thai massage, but also the act of practicing Metta, or lovingkindness will giving to a client.

For 6 years, I taught swim lessons to hundreds of individuals and groups alike with clients ranging from 2 years old to over 65. The intention of every session was different from learning to take first strokes, to competing in open-water races.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Apolo uses his hands with intuition and precision. I was very receptive and completely comfortable and relaxed the entire massage. With Apolo's added creativity you can trust to receive all his attention and possibly the best massage you will ever have.. Massage therapy is his passion and his caring & empathetic attitude shines through brightly, all while holding a safe space for energy work. I feel restored, balanced and more connected to my internal and external body. Thank you Apolo, you are a unique gift to the world of healing and massage!

Javier is a gifted, compassionate healing artist. He has the ability to deeply listen with his hands and applying a very personal touch that was very therapeutic and healing. As a bodyworker my self I've received many massages and by far he stands out one of the tops. The office is located in a beautiful serene place, away from the noise with plenty of parking. Once I walked in he greeted me and went to the massage room. I loved the space and energy of the entire facility, very clean, fresh, welcoming and safe. His space is also very welcoming and peaceful. After telling him a whole story of how I was feeling at the moment he was very intuitive in selecting a music that made the session special. So a deep sense of intuition and really listening to my underling mood that was able for him to pick up and execute through his work and art. A true gift and a natural. My body, mind and soul felt rejuvenated, cleansed and touched with compassion after the session and also in a therapeutic level, my aches and pains vanished and increasing range of motion. I am very grateful to have received from an amazing therapist that is making a healing loving ripple for every person he touches.

I loved my massage from Javier! He was intuitive and present with his touch, checking in with me when he noticed if there needed to be any adjustments. He has a very comforting presence and I trusted his abilities. He addressed every part I asked him to and did not go over-time. I felt so relaxed and grateful for the time spent with him, it made the rest of my day even better. Best way to start my morning thats for sure.

My session with Javi was wonderful and everything I could have asked for. He asked me about my well-being and what I wanted from the massage and how I wanted to feel after. I felt safe to tell him what was going on physically and emotionally. I had been feeling irritable for days before the massage, and after receiving his touch and presence I felt back to my normal state of happiness and peace. The physical massage was lovely as well, very thorough, excellent pressure, meeting my edge but not going past it, and addressing all areas of concern I had mentioned and then some. His oils/lotions he used on my skin smelled so good. He even had dark chocolate on his desk for after! Hands down one of the best massage experiences I’ve had. So grateful.

Javier has a very sensitive touch and is totally in tune with his patients' requests. All in all it was a wonderful experience!

Very targeted massage - the therapist took the time to talk and inquire about areas of particular discomfort, tension, or soreness, ultimately providing a very effective and productive massage.

Really enjoyed the first in-house massage. Looking forward to a time maybe not so busy after the massage to recoup. Leg cramps diminished on last few hot days when it usually flares due to dehydration and may well be due to the session.

You're great! Thank you so much!!

Loved my experience.

Javier is an incredible massage therapist. Before I went in for my massage, he sat me down and thoroughly asked me if I had any specific concerns or areas I would like for him to work on. I told him I sometimes suffered from hip pain and was currently harboring a terrible migraine. Not only did he focus on healing those specific areas for a great amount of time, he also dedicated time to other connected parts of my body that were incredibly beneficial. I also must mention that both my body and mind felt totally relaxed after the massage. He even managed to eliminate my migraine! Javier is not a standard massage therapist. Not only is his technique exceptional; he exudes a wonderful energy that is felt before, during, and after the massage. It is evident from start to finish that Javier truly cares about your well being and wants the best for you and your body.
