Javier 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 wish to feel more connected to yourself…more embodied?
How do you want to feel after a massage therapy session is over?

Those are only a few random questions to get you thinking. My intention is to listen and to provide you with the attention that you need in the present moment.

Those are only a few random questions to get you thinking. My intention is to listen and to provide you with the attention that you need in the present moment.

Other than my very comprehensive education at the Florida School of Massage, I am trained in advanced sports massage techniques, Thai massage, Reiki, and am always learning new modalities/techniques.
When we work together, it’s about focusing on you from beginning to end.

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!
-Javi

Experience
Bodywork

Sports Massage Advanced Certification

During this 75 hour comprehensive and interdisciplinary certification, I learned advanced massage techniques, orthopedic tests, implementation of flexibility techniques, and worked at several events massaging athletes.

Post Injury Running Coach Certification

During this 18 hour course normally limited to physical therapists, I learned to help clients identify running related injuries, how do self-treat them, and develop programming to help facilitate an injury-free return to running.

Thai Massage Certification

I am currently participating in a 108-hour course at The Bodhi Sangha School of Thai Massage in Gainesville, Florida. This 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.

I planned and implemented swimming and conditioning training sessions for a diverse group of triathletes and runners in Miami, Florida from 2014 - 2016.

USAT All-American Triathlete 2011

I earned All-American status under USA Triathlon in the 20-24 age group. Some notable performances include winning numerous races in Florida such as Suncoast Triathlon and Mack Cycle Trilogy Series overall as well as qualifying for the 2011 Age Group World Championships in Beijing, China.

Florida State University D1 Track Athlete

I ran/trained for the 800m for the nationally-ranked Florida State University's Track & Field team for the 2012 season as a graduate student/assistant. I did not compete due to achilles tendinitis injury.

State Champion - Track and Field and XC

Anchored the undefeated Belen Jesuit Preparatory School 4x800m relay team to a first place finish at the 2007 FHSAA State Championships. Was also a key member in both the 2006 State Champion Cross Country team (3rd man) and the 2007 State Champion Track team (4x800m, 800m, 4x400m).

Personal Trainer - NCCPT

As a personal trainer, I created and implemented workout programs for individuals and groups alike in Miami, Florida from 2013 - 2015. Several of my specialties included corrective and functional exercise, bootcamp-style sessions, and individual/group swim sessions.

Swim Instructor

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.

I led patients through orthopedic exercises and cued select clients through running-specific rehabilitative exercises, among numerous other responsibilities. Miami, Florida and Gainesville, Florida.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

You're great! Thank you so much!!

Loved my experience.
by Alejandra on May 24
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.

Javier gave me his full attention. His knowledge of kinesiology and relating to my movement activities made me feel in good hands. Intuitive! Javier is very professional. I will be back!

I thought Javier was very professional and also extremely caring and sensitive, at the same time. I felt heard and understood as to what I was needing, and i also felt like Javier asked the right questions to get even more out of my time with him. It felt like Javier was also very in tune with where to do the body work intuitively and like I didn't need to know everything that was going on beforehand. This is important to me, as I don't always know what I need, just that I need a little TLC. I appreciate how gentle he was and applied the perfect amount of pressure. I am thankful for my time with him and wish him the best success.

Javier is incredibly talented and intuitive when it comes to giving your body exactly the massage it needs in that moment. My most recent massage with him addressed the aches commonly associated with a 40-hour work week as well as the rehabilitation needed from my running and strength-training routine. I have been to many massage therapists in my life and he is hands down one of the best in the industry.

I loved the specificity of the deep work and attention to the discomfort I was experiencing. The tingling I was feeling into my hands was much improved !
by Demi on May 09
Javier is a well-rounded, creative, and attentive therapist. My entire experience felt like artistry from the intake to outtake. During the intake, Javier was clear in his questions and communication, and I felt that he listened to everything I said with great presence. During the massage, his communication was just the right amount for me. I felt engaged and empowered in my own body with the work, as he encouraged me to notice my experience. His bodywork addressed all the needs I mentioned- to feel grounded and uplifted at the same time. His pace and pressure was perfectly aligned with what my body and spirit was wanting, and he was actively engaged in his presence and communication. I felt that so clearly through his touch and communication. After the massage I shared all these things and he humbly expressed his thanks, which is another aspect I admire in true artists of their craft- expressing their gift in a humble way, forming a relationship with the client. I highly recommend receiving work with Javier. I have every guarantee he will work with and be present with you in the place you are at and want to be, sharing his communication and therapeutic touch in a way with great integrity!
