Introduction: It’s been said that, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life,” and for me, nothing could be truer. Hi, I’m Jack, founder of “Healing Arts by Jack.” I’m a medically retired U.S. Army Combat Medic turned Masterful Masseur and I love every single day of my life because I get to do what I love most.. making a positive difference in the lives of others, by helping people relax, release, and rejuvenate! In fact, if my massage isn’t THE MOST AHHHMAZING MASSAGE YOU’VE EVER HAD, YOU WON’T PAY! As a fully vaccinated, outcall provider, I’m happy to travel to the comfort and familiarity of your home or hotel room. May I suggest indulging a 90-120 minute massage, right before you go to bed? I guarantee you’ll sleep better than you have in a long time! Please note, I am based in Sherman Oaks, and while I am happy to drive to your location, I do charge a trip fee of .58 per mile (government rate) for any massages less than 90 min and destinations exceeding 60 miles round trip. Thank you for understanding that gas is expensive and time on LA freeways are... well, do I need to even explain? My massages are unique in several ways. First, as a Reiki Master/Teacher, my massages infuse Reiki energy healing with relaxing full body massage to open and balance your blocked chakras, improving mood, circulation, and immunity, while reducing stress, high blood pressure, and headaches, among many other things. With everything going on in the world right now, who wouldn’t say yes, to all of these health benefits, right? Second, the massage time you request is the FULL amount you will receive. For example, if you request a 90 minute massage, you will receive a FULL, HANDS-ON, 90 MIN. MASSAGE and nothing less! Have you ever received a massage that was 10-15 min less than the requested time, because the massage therapist deducts that time for set up and clean up? As a receiver, Nothing annoys me more than that! I love what I do, that’s why I wouldn’t dream of going less than your requested time. In fact, because I am not a clock watcher, my massages tend to run over in duration. Third, I am fully present, intentional and deliberate in everything I do and every moment I am with you, tuning into your energies and needs. My massages are not your typical formulaic massage, therefore no two massages are ever the same, and my mind isn’t thinking about what I want for lunch. It is my honor and pleasure to serve you! My goal is to earn your ongoing business and your referrals (ask me about my generous referral program). You’ll find my grounding presence and strong, yet gentle hands, will put you at ease immediately. I am generally available for booking 24/7, so I can best accommodate your most ideal time, though I seldom respond to messages after 10pm. I won’t do any massages less than 90 minutes, unless you are an established client, but I am available for as long of a massage that you want at a rate of $100/hr.

I love getting massage. Vernon is an ‘at ease’ maker and understands the importance of full body presence during a massage to ease tension. This session left me feeling connected and at peace. What really made the massage that much better than most massages I’ve had is the care and attention that seemed to be constantly directed toward me. Vernon is a true healer and provides a noteworthy healing experience.

As someone who has had massage regularly for years, I can say that Vernon is one of the best masseurs around. He provides a unique combination of healing arts with smooth powerful strokes that will leave you physically as well as mentally sublime.

Vernon is a great healing arts specialist. He was quick to respond and easy to book. His massage was very relaxing and he's not a clock watcher. I highly recommend if you're looking to relax and feel really good.

Vernon has much to offer as a healer, reiki master, and massage therapist. All of his modalities offered are both his gifts and his calling as he embodies complete trustworthiness. Being a woman, this is very important to me. I highly recommend his healing work to anyone.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I don’t believe in “add-ons.” My fees are flat fees and include travel time (up to 60 miles, round trip), setup and cleanup. I also don’t believe in charging extra for things like massaging your scalp or your feet, as they should just be included in any full body massage. Any miles over the 60 miles round trip are billed at the government rate of .58 per minute.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I believe that the best way to ensure you receive the best possible massage or treatment, is through open and honest communication. We will take a few minutes to discuss any desires, needs, and boundaries you my have.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I’m proud to have served so many people from all walks of life. I have, and I will work with anyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and people with many varying disabilities.
