getting to know us...

Jessica Smartt Silva, LMP   I am a Pisces born the year of the Dragon.  Native to northern-central California, I love the sunshine and heat.  I have learned to dress for the weather and enjoy the beauty of the terrain in the Northwest.  I am passionate about singing, animals, health and human anatomy. I established JS elements (formerly SMARTT massage) in 2001 after graduating with honors from Seattle Massage School.  Prior to life in Seattle, I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA and Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan with a BS in International Relations and Foreign Affairs.  But my interests in muscles brought me back to the US and to JS elements!  I love the puzzling challenge of understanding the muscles of the human anatomy and getting them back to maximum efficiency.

Jake Silva, Barber  I am an Aquarius born the year of the Tiger.  Native to the Hawaiian island of Kauai I can appreciate the lush green and being close to the ocean.  I am passionate about fishing and making people feel good by looking great. I am a long time resident of Seattle and an alum of Franklin High.  I have been cutting hair since 1994 and during the Pandemic of 2020 established Jake's Barber Truck.
