I am a professional and highly trained massage therapist.
I use specific assessment and bodywork techniques to help people manage stress, chronic physical tension, and pain--particularly neck, back, and shoulder aches. I've had good success in helping reduce or eliminate headaches and with acute or sudden-onset pain as well.
I've been well-trained in relaxation-style massage modalities, and highly trained in more therapeutic, rehabilitation-style techniques. I'm also certified in pre-natal, pregnancy massage.
If you’d like to set up an appointment with me, you may do so here. You can reach me by phone or email. I would be pleased to be your massage therapist for all your ethical massage needs, and am happy to answer any questions you might have about my services.
I am a California state-certified massage therapist in good standing with the California Massage Therapy Council, and am passionate about your wellness.
I've gotten over 1,000 class hours of massage training beyond the minimum of 500 hours required for certification (and beyond the 657 hours of training that the average certified massage therapist in the US has), and have found that the additional training has a tendency to lead to far better long term outcomes for my clients. I feel very blessed to get to see and hear about those results frequently.
The bulk of my massage training took place at the Western Institute of Neuromuscular Therapy (1,000 hrs) and through the Advanced Neuromuscular Therapist's program at the National Holistic Institute (450 hrs). I'm also getting more into Rolfing-type structural integration work. As a therapist, I find it's also a great learning tool, (and therapeutic!) to trade with other skilled therapists, and I am fortunate to be able to do that regularly.
Additionally, I've been a practicing massage therapist since 2011. Training is great, but if it's not applied, how can one know whether it's truly valuable? I use it regularly, so I know it is. :)
I'm set up at a work location where time is allotted to address your specific massage needs. In other words, there's no running around like a chicken with it's head cut off due to back to back bookings all day. There's a 15mn time cushion between appointments, and you get a full hour of bodywork with me instead of the 50 minutes offered by most places. Likewise 90mn and 120mn appts are actually that amount of time in bodywork, with that 15mn window worked in so nobody feels rushed.
I'm currently contracted with Kathy Flippin of Dynamic Touch Massage and work with her at her Laguna Niguel location. She has high standards for all her therapists (myself included) and her company is very reputable. However, my rates for private clientele are discounted over the general going rate there, and if you're reading this and interested in a session with me, make sure you let the scheduling office know you discovered me through my website, JasonYarbroughCMT.com, in order to qualify for my rates for private clientele.
I hope to see you at the clinic soon!
