My name is Jesse Ball. I am a graduate of the Finger Lakes School of massage in Ithaca, NY and have been in private practice for the past 11 years, having founded Evolve in the fall of 2007. Over the years I have gained experience working with a diverse clientele and addressing a variety of physical and emotional conditions. I have continued to learn and grow as a therapist through extensive continuing education and my time teaching the work at FLSM. My knowledge and intuition help my work stand out as one of the most beneficial and effective approaches available in the area.
Through this work has come countless opportunities to learn more about the connection between our bodies and minds, our inner and outer worlds, our emotional state and our physical bodies. A massage therapist's work, I really believe, is in creating awareness around and supporting these connections. The more I learn about and experience these connections in my own life and through the experiences of the people that land on my table, the more I want to learn how to help foster a harmonious balance between all areas of life.
In addition to my bodywork practice, I have experience teaching Massage, Anatomy and Physiology and Business at the Finger Lakes School of Massage in Ithaca, NY. I have also studied and practiced traditional Western Herbal Medicine for years and completed my apprenticeship with Heart Stone Herbal School in 2014.
When not working I am spending time with my partner and our daughter. We enjoy hiking and camping, cooking together, and traveling around this beautiful corner of this world, taking in all the good stuff it has to offer.
