Parmele Sports and Rehab Massage

Former NFL Athlete Opens Massage Therapy Clinic...


Owned and operated by former NFL athlete Jalen Parmele, Parmele Sports and Rehab Massage is the result of Jalen’s ingenuity, entrepreneurial spirit, and passion for helping others. He also happens to know a thing or two about recovering from pain and operating at your peak physical ability.  

Our core mission is to not only relieve pain and tension through the power of massage therapy, but to give people the education they need to manage pain, potentially eliminate it altogether, and take charge of their health after they leave the clinic -- an added value that many clinics simply don’t offer.

Although we’re still a young company, we’ve received incredible votes of confidence from our clients and community all in just a short period of time. We’re growing quickly, but now we need a little leg up to handle that growth.

That’s where you come in.

With this campaign, our goal is to increase our staff, upgrade our equipment, bolster our educational mission with a series of therapy-focused videos, and continue spreading the word of who we are and what we’re all about: treating each and every one of our customers based on their needs to promote a pain-free tomorrow.

Parmele Sports and Rehab Massage: where your health is our passion.

Jalen Parmele

As a former NFL running back / kickoff returner with the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, and Jacksonville Jaguars, Jalen Parmele is no stranger to the concept of bodily aches and pains.

In a profession where physical wear-and-tear is simply part of the job description, massage therapy provided a frequent source of relief.

When his nearly 8-year career in the NFL drew to a close, Jalen decided his next venture would be sharing with others the same fundamental healing abilities he experienced firsthand through massage therapy during his professional football days.

Wasting no time putting his plan into action, Jalen enrolled in the Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy in 2015 and became a certified Personal Trainer that same year -- specializing in orthopedic exercise, functional training, and fitness nutrition.

Putting into practice the entrepreneurial knowledge he gained at the University of Toledo as a Business Administration graduate, Jalen opened the doors to Parmele Sports Rehab Massage in October 2016 and has proudly owned and operated the business ever since.

While he acknowledges that there are plenty of other massage therapists who may have more years of experience under their belt, Jalen’s undeniable love for his work shines through with the attention and care he devotes to each individual client.

There are few things in life more satisfying than that feeling you get walking out of a really great massage session.

While many people tend to think of massage therapy as a once-in-a-blue-moon luxury treatment limited to fancy spas or upscale health clubs, the truth is that regular massages can actually provide major health benefits both physical and mental.

From easing muscle pain, to improving sleep, to boosting immunity, to soothing anxiety and depression, and much, much more.

The problem?

Many people who seek relief from constant pain and tension by way of massage therapy often don’t receive the proper information about the corrective exercise, stretching, and self-release techniques to help get rid of their pain for good.

The fact is, there are many people in the massage and health care business that treat pain relief methods as one-size-fits-all solutions, when in reality, not all pain is created equally. Every body is different, and every body requires personalized treatment.

At Parmele Sports and Rehab Massage, that’s our own personal philosophy and it drives every single decision that we make when working with our customers.

Whether our clients sit for prolonged periods of the day, workout most days of the week, are a stay-at-home parent, an athlete, and every other lifestyle in between, our massage techniques can help them feel better, and the information we give them can help them stay better.

We specialize in using massage therapy to treat a broad range of conditions, including:

Let's break them all down:

Ideal for athletes of any sport, weightlifters, MMA, runners, or anyone looking to recover from a sports-related injury. This style uses stretches, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue techniques to help achieve optimal function and movement, increase performance, and reduce recovery time.

This massage is not your typical full body massage. It focuses on the treatment of existing or previous injuries resulting from work, sports, accidents, and beyond. This massage works on any muscles that may be the source of pain, tension, or dysfunction and uses trigger point therapy, deep tissue, positional release, and myofascial release techniques.

This option features techniques that are used for accessing deeper layers of muscle tissue -- recommended for clients with chronic aches and pains, stiff neck and upper back muscles, low back pain, and lower extremity tension.

The Swedish Massage is best for those seeking overall relaxation and tension release. This style uses longer gliding movements to the body, helping increase blood circulation.

The use of suction from cups to improve blood flow, reduce adhesion, and myofascial restriction.

We offer 50% off all massages for military and military spouses -- for life!

The ultimate goal is to build Parmele Sports and Rehab Massage into a full-fledged corrective health company that combines corrective exercise and massage therapy.

Each client will receive a chart of exercises and stretches to perform to help them correct their ailments. They will have an opportunity to purchase personal training along with monthly massages. We will also provide a full examination to create an action plan.

The examination will include muscle length testing/measuring, strength testing, range of motion tests, balance, coordination, and tests that check for positive signs of ailment.

With this fundraise, our goal is to secure a total of $12,000 which will allow us to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Hire 3 new staff members (front desk and 2 additional massage therapists)
  • Increase the average number of weekly clients from 25 to around 70
  • Purchase new equipment and products
  • Ramp up our advertising efforts
  • Develop and deploy educational videos
