Welcome to my site. I am Jalen Parmele, I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Personal trainer. I attended the Cortiva Institute of Massage therapy.
What about you?
I am a retired NFL player from Michigan, I recently moved here with my wife and kids in August 2013. Like most, we left Michigan to escape those long, brutal winters.
Why massage therapy?
After 5+ years of receiving massages, I was always amazed by how much better I’d feel not only physically, but mentally as well. Once my career in the NFL ended I came to the conclusion that I want to help improve people’s well-being much like how mine is improved through massage. So I attended Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy in 2015 and in that same year I became a certified Personal Trainer.
What is your favorite thing about being a massage therapist?
Being able to help people with reoccurring pain in their muscles. Especially if the pain was coming from trigger points or chronic muscle tension. My goal is to get people feeling better fast. I love working with clients seeking pain relief because it’s very rewarding to see them have less pain after a session.
What do you consider your best massage modality?
I believe that I have a very dynamic Swedish tissue massage. I combine movements and pressure that help clients receive full relaxation.
Who is your ideal client?
My ideal client is anyone who has muscle tension, stress, frequent headaches, previous injuries, etc. My ideal client may also be someone whom is more comfortable receiving a massage in the comfort of their own home. Anyone who feels the could really benefit from a massage, is my ideal client!
Why choose me over other LMTs?
Good question. There are several great massage therapists out there with years and years of experience, and there are several average to below average therapists. There are therapists that truly love what they are doing and understand the human body and movement, as well as make full effort to help their clients achieve their goals; and there are massage therapists who really only desire a paycheck without really understanding how to help their clients achieve their goals. When you receive a massage from me you are getting someone who truly loves what they are doing and puts their full focus and attention into each massage. I believe in the power of massages and I want my clients to have that same feeling. By no means am I the best, but my goal is to be the best you’ve ever had!
