It all Begins and Ends in The Brain

Personal Training

Routine exercise decreases risk factors attributed with diseases such as hypertension, coronary obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, obesity, and depression.

It contributes to increased blood circulation, energy and improved sleep quality. Sleep is extremely beneficial for the nervous system and body. If you are in need of a dedicated fitness professional who applies fundamental principles of exercise science, communication, and patience when training I can help you!

A great deal of thoughtfulness, planning, and consideration is taken when designing each session. Criteria used include health history (taken from the intake form), physical abilities, time, and goals. Each session is reinforced with support, and tools for nutritional guidance.

Areas of Focus

  • Improving Endurance ( Timed walking or running)
  • Improving Strength (The ability to increase the amount of weight one can lift up to peak strength)
  • Balance and Mobility Training
  • Weight Management
  • Improving Heart and Metabolic Health

Massage Therapy in conjunction with personal training are two key components in maintaining overall health. Massage targets the muscles, skin, and the nervous system. People seek massage to address muscle fatigue, and nagging sensations of pain. Massage Therapy also promotes recovery after sporting events and plays a role in reducing the risk of injury when applied prior to sporting events.

Areas of Focus

  • Reducing Muscle Pain to Encourage Better Movement

  • Reducing Soreness

60 Minute Massage
  • As robust and intricate as our nervous system and bodies are it needs downtime to recover, reset, and relax.
  • Massage Therapy is a great non impact rhythmic way to introduce these states.
90 Minute Massage
  • Expect all the benefits from the sixty minute session plus additional time to focus on tender areas, warm heat applications, and table based stretches.

60 Minute Medical Massage
  • Medical Massage is tailored for clients who need sessions to manage soft tissue discomfort from injuries and trauma. Sessions are usually focused on relieving specific pain(s) in specific regions, promoting mobility, and relieving tension.
60 Minute Manual Lymphatic Drainage
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage promotes movement of lymph fluid that build up in tissues after cancer treatment. It is a slow and gentle treatment that moves fluid from a non-functioning region to one that functions.

Success! You're on the list.

My name is Jason Charles. I have practiced massage therapy for a total of nine years. My initial education was focused on applying massage as an adjunct modality to help clients relax. As time progressed and education evolved It became clear to that massage therapy can support pain reduction and encourage movement.

During the last four years, I have worked in a multidisciplinary clinical setting on patients presenting with musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions. The experience gained allowed me to better understand the significance of manual therapy and exercise in encouraging others to feel better.

I want to help you manage and possibly overcome muscle pain originating from a previously diagnosed injury or pain which reduces or interrupts you from performing activities of daily living.

In addition to licensure, I am nationally certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork (BCTMB), completed live training in medical and oncology massage therapies, respectively, as well as manual lymphatic drainage (MLD-C)

I began my personal training career as a trainer in a commercial gym. I now work independently and have a deeper commitment towards helping my clients achieve their utmost level of optimal fitness regardless of where they are in life. Everyone can benefit from personal training. It truly promotes increased circulation, cellular, and bone health.

I am certified as a personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and as a personal trainer with the American Council of Exercise.
