Jarrel Armstrong CMT
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.

I began my journey into the healing arts in the fall of 2015. I had studied biological sciences and plant pathology because I’ve always been fascinated with the intricately beautiful systems that make up living organisms. After landing a corporate research position to work with industrial agriculture chemicals, I realized I had made a wrong turn somewhere in my career path. And so I went back to school to study Swedish massage. As I developed an interest in deep tissue modalities, I earned a certification in Integrative Muscle Movement Technique, which utilizes passive muscle movement during the massage. I have also been studying Western Folk Herbalism, and hope to become a community practitioner in the future. In my spare time I work on plans for a mobile tiny house, design and establish edible perennial gardens for myself and friends, and tinker with various DIY crafts.
