Meet Massage Therapsist Jay!
Jay has been part of the SomaSpa massage team for more than 7 years!
Jay is one of those fortunate souls who knows that his chosen profession of massage therapy is indeed the work he was born to do. He completed his Massage Therapy studies in Falls Church, Virginia. He is state licensed, nationally certified, and a member of the Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
Though proficient in Swedish, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage, Jay is most drawn to therapeutic modalities that alleviate specific issues of pain or physical dysfunction. In this regard he has studied Kinesio-massage with Glenn Hakey whose system combines techniques of orthopedic massage with facilitated stretching. Jay's personal definition of massage is, “the science and art of extravagant touch”.
