I just finished five, 2 hour sessions with Jesse James Massage. The results were FANTASTIC! These massages weren't like your everyday massage where you go in, get your massage, feel good for the day, and your done. These massages LAST!
After my first massage my flexibility INSTANTLY increased, allowing me to increase my bench press by 25 lbs. Before I started these massages, I had some shoulder problems (for about 6 years). Because of those shoulder problems I had trouble sleeping and doing normal physical activities. But now, I sleep great, the pain is almost unnoticeable, and I can do the physical stuff I love. On top of all that, my libido increased and my relationship with my fiance got even better. I had more patience with day to day aggravations at work which led to a better work performance.
I really can't say enough about the experience I had with Jesse James Massage. Before I was a sceptic (with ALL massages), now, I am a believer and am addicted to Jesse James Massage. I will be getting routine Jesse James Massages from here on out.Baseball Player
Thank-you so much for the fantastic massage. That weird pain I've had in my knee has finally, after two months, disappeared! You're the best. Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!Doctor of Chiropractic
Thanks Jesse for sharing your knowledge with all of us. I am a huge proponent of client education to engage them in co-creating with their healing practitioners a future of sustainable health. Kudos!!!Author
I am so grateful to have found Jesse! I’ve been training in Taekwon-Do since I was 4 yrs old and competing internationally with the U.S. ITF Taekwon-Do Team since 1995. In 2004, I was Team Captain and we won the World Championships in South Korea. In addition to the physical training and eating right, massage was a crucial part of my training. It helped my body recover from intense workouts and allowed my body to come back from injuries faster than I thought possible.
When I began getting massages from Jesse and it was like night and day comparing Jesse to massages I’ve had in the past. I’ve used therapists that range from $150 to $250 per session and none of them have produced the results I’ve seen since working with Jesse. His ability to scan the body and pin point what is going on with you in a matter of minutes, even seconds astounds me! I’ll come in talking about something wrong with my back and after 10 minutes of him working on my calf, my back feels great!
He’s a master at seeing what your body is dealing with and what it really needs. I’m currently training for the Taekwon-Do World Cup in Las Vegas in 2010 and I know Jesse will be a big part of my success.Taekwon-Do World Champion
I had Jesse James massage my shoulder which is diagnosed with encapsulitis (frozen shoulder). In just an hour I was able to move my shoulder more freely and and had a much wider range of movement! Thank you Jesse for your knowledge and expertise - I know I am in good hands.Non-Profit Liaison
I went to Jesse originally because I was doing a lot of cardio and weight training work and my body was trying to keep up. I am bulky and I tend to carry a lot of mass which means I can get very tight with severe knots and restricted movement. My first session with Jesse was nothing short of amazing. He has a unique way of getting you connected to your body mentally allowing for a great session.
I have been getting massages on a regular basis for years now and I am very selective on who I will allow work on me. The only way to describe Jesse's work is Transformational. I was able to gain movement in my arms and my body that I never knew was possible. This made every aspect of my life more functional, I never realized how free my body could be. Highly recommend Jesse James Massage for anyone who is looking to reclaim their body free of pain, and enjoy life at a higher level. Great Work!CEO Titaneer
I am pleased to unreservedly recommend Jesse Ferrell as an outstanding massage therapist. I first met him in an educational seminar in 2006. I am a nurse practitioner by profession, and in my many years of experience have always referred clients only to colleagues whose work and character I personally know to be impeccable. Because Jesse's work with me has resulted in significant pain reduction and increased flexibility, it is my privilege to share the good news with others.
You will be nurtured by Jesse's professional and sensitive demeanor as well as the safe and tranquil ambience of his home-based office. Please feel free to contact me if you have other questions.
Be well.Nurse Practitioner
The Jesse James Massage Method is for anyone who demands the best of their body and mind. It is a whole-body treatment process, intuitively designed to release the muscles so they can heal and work as designed. As a result of working with my JJM therapist over the last few years, I have come to understand how something as simple as decision making impacts my body, and how my body compensates over time by holding in the effects of stress and shock.
When you consider the literally thousands of decisions we make every day from the moment we get out of bed, it’s not hard to imagine how chronic pain begins to develop and sustain over time! I first came to Jesse James Massage to assist with healing neck and shoulder pain I had been suffering, but over time I have consistently experienced greater mental clarity, dramatic improvement in my workouts and rapid recovery.
I say the JJ Method vastly promotes the body’s ability to heal itself (my empirical evidence being that I don’t think I’ve been sick since becoming a client) and so I now recommend Jesse James Massage to everyone I know.PR Marketing Development
I received 4 consecutive Jesse James Massage sessions in a past 2 months and each time it has been absolutely outstanding experience!!! As a result of high intensity training on daily basis I often experience physical and emotional stress, soreness all over my body, fatigue and low energy.
Even after my 1st JJM session I instantly felt rejuvenated, more flexible, stronger, my recovery sped up tremendously and allowed me much greater fitness performance. I can even see a huge difference in my sleep quality, over all energy level and mood. I can definitely say that JJM offers most amazing approach tailored exactly to fit the needs of each individual. I am a huge fan and would recommend it to anyone 100%!!!!!Fitness Contestant
This is a true wellness healing center! Nestled in a perfect location, with several surrounding eatery's it's a gem! I went in with a level 8 pain in shoulder, hips and lower back from old motor vehicle accidents, etc. I've tried EVERYTHING including 2 chiropractic procedures under anesthesia and still have pain. In one session with Jesse my pain dropped to a 2 and gets better by the day. Jesse brings so much love, knowledge and intuitive talent it's almost indescribable! With all his powerful modalities, cupping, aromatherapy, body work, energy etc. you get exactly what you need. Jesse knows what your body needs even if you don't. He is bringing health to individuals and the community with his center.
Workshops, smoothies, community, healing... it's ALL here! I'd chill, work or hang out in his lounge any day over Starbucks! His team is just as loving, caring and energetic.I've known Jesse for years and never came to him for services! Now I'll never go anywhere else for massages and healing work. Don't wait... your health is too precious!Dr. Sex Talk
After years of chiropractic care with Dr. Josh Haggard he referred me to get a Jesse James Massage. He felt like this would help my low back and legs. My IT band is wound so tight you could play music on it. I went to see Jesse and here is what happened... I was cupped, not copped!
Chinese Cupping is an ancient form of muscle healing therapy. It involves the placement of several small glass hemispheres with suction cups that when positioned over a muscle and activated, draw blood to the area for healing all kinds of ailments. In my case, the blood helped separate a layer of protective tissue from the muscles so they could receive hydration more effectively, improving the state of my muscles that resemble beef jerky (as he described my condition so I could understand it).
Jesse's therapy is unique. I have been getting massages for over 20 years. I am an active skier and work out 3-4 times a week. I have also suffered with low back pain. Within 3 sessions with Jesse my low back pain had almost disappeared. Jesse's approach to my low back issue was unlike any other therapy I have ever had and it is EFFECTIVE. No two bodies are alike; nor should be massage therapy.
Read the testimonials before mine and be assured we all write in unison. Recently I injured my back again. This has been a reoccurring injury. Last time it took over 6 months to heal. Jesse said because of the work we have been doing you will recover much faster this time, even within weeks. I wanted to believe Jesse but history has a way of reminding me.
Thank you Jesse and Dr. Josh for getting me back on my feet in only as couple of weeks. Go see Jesse and get a Jesse James Massage and go see Dr. Josh. They are both MASTERS in their field.Community Liaison
He intuitively knows and understands where the chinese accupunture channels are and works to open them. Jesse is an extremely intuitive massage therapist who has an incredible knowledge of the human muscular system. He works with and finds the connecting points of muscles at the skeletal source. This is important in that he is able to work to release the tension and obstructions at their source.
This type of work is very intense as it releases stored emotions as well as any body memories that may be stored in those tight muscles. I have received this type of therapeutic massage in the past and feel that Jesse’s work is far superior to any other massage therapist that I have worked with. He described himself, via his clients, as fearless. I prefer to refer to him as extremely intense. He will ignore your protests when he sees that you will be better served to work though the issue in the muscle rather than avoid it.
Jesse takes what he has learned and experienced, applying the techniques to the individual. Jesse is respectful of a client’s energy and works to rebalance it individually. This rebalancing is used to help transition the client back to reality. His massages often send the client into an altered space as a result of the physical, mental and emotional release that takes place during a session. He intuitively knows and understands where the chinese acupuncture channels are and works to open them.
Personally Jesse, I thank you for trusting me and feeling comfortable to use me as a sounding board. At first this felt a bit awkward but there was an intimacy that I felt in this process. My body is on a better path of healing and your work with me allowed for this transition. It was a reminder to self that my body needs as much care as my mind.Naturopathic Doctor
Twenty years since my car accident and I feel parts of my body. THANK YOU!!! Please rest assured that Jesse is very professional and does the best massage I have ever had. I use him as medicine, as he cures the aches and extreme pain that I sometimes accrue due to being an artist bent over my canvas all day. I feel very safe when I am at his house getting a massage and trust him completely.
Jesse is a very talented massage therapist. He specializes in deep tissue work, but is able to perform a variety of different styles -- even within a session -- depending on the need. He is highly intuitive, and addresses the needs of his clients in a professional, yet personal manner.
I highly recommend Jesse to anyone searching for a "higher level" experience.Artist
Quite frankly, I always thought massage was a bunch of bullshit! I had no desire to lay down while someone rubs me with no potential for long-term benefit...what a waste of time! Well, that was until I had the privilege of a Jesse James Massage. Wow! Far from a fluff n' buff, but it's massage by design. It's designed to actually make a difference and not just make you feel good. Folks, if you want to feel good, go out with your friends. On the other hand, if you want to improve your overall health and function call Jesse NOW! He's single-handedly changed my mind about massage.Doctor of Chiropractic
What I would say about the Jesse James Method, for many people the idea of getting a massage is more a nice to have vs a need. In a day and age where we rush to do everything, we forget to care for our bodies inside and out. We utilize our bodies like a Mac truck but forget to refuel, quality check, and thank it for getting us from point A to point B.
The Jesse James Method teaches, loving your body, understanding what it's telling you, and providing it down time will provide years of memorable moments. I had to hit rock bottom to find my way to a Jesse James Massage table, I had to slow down long enough to grasp the concept, I had to listen and for me this does not come easy. I told Jesse one day walking out that I felt as though the Jesse James Method spoke to your muscles, with every glide of the motion it released years of damage. It's not a single session. Put it this way, it took you years to create the damage it will take time to repair.
As a provider in healthcare I include massage as a part of treatment planning. Ask yourself, "when was the last time I gave my body true love"? If the answer does not come quickly I suggest you book a series of appointment and experience the Jesse James Method. After an amazingly long week, I was provided a wonderful opportunity to be healed with massage by my dear friend Jesse James Ferrell. A master in his trade, he provided healing through a variety of massage techniques! I spent two hours at the mercy of his hands.
Enable Your Care is proud to endorse Jesse James Massage beautiful gift to our patients and we look forward to partnering with Jesse and his team in the days to come. Friends, I encourage each of you to visit Jesse James Massage website and consider true healing! Jesse reminded me this evening that while I spend a lot of time helping others, I need to remember to take care of myself as well. This is easily over looked sometimes, I am anxious to provide myself healing and have signed up/committed to total wellness for myself and my patients!
Thank you Jesse for once again, helping me to provide gratitude and love back to my body! I am on my way now to Jesse and look forward to the teachings of Jesse James Method.Patient Advocate
No matter how hard I play he can restore my body to full health. Jesse has been my exclusive masseuse for more than five years because his massages do more than just work the kinks out of my muscles; they invigorate and rejuvenate me. His deep-tissue massages always find the parts of my body that are out of whack, and Jesse doesn’t stop working those areas until they are, um, back in whack.
Jesse’s massages allow me to get the most out of my body, whether it’s participating in the sports I love or just moving around in life. His deep tissue massages also give me the peace of mind to know that no matter how hard I play he can restore my body to full health. I have and will always recommend a Jesse James massage to everybody.Writer/Editor
