Kevin O'Melia

Innovative Massage & Therapeutic Stretching

To most effectively treat my clients I tend to "use what works".  I combine several of the different and yet complementary techniques that I have learned over the past 10+ years to aid in the relaxation and healing of the body.

Very impressed with Kevin's knowledge of body and cutting-edge therapies. He listened intently and responded accordingly with - what seems to me - the most accurate diagnosis to date. Very excited about working with him to the resolution of my problem.

There are massages and then there are massages from Kevin at Next Step Therapeutics. He is great with his technique,explaining the 'what' and 'why'about the massage tpye, technique and how other parts of the body respond when another part is injured. Best massage I have ever experienced! He is very professional, and polite and took great care to keep my body covered. Kevin is AMAZING!

I haven't had much energy for weeks, but today (day after the massage), I feel revitalized. I wish I could bottle that energy up and live on it. Kevin worked on my shoulders and I wasn't even aware that that was a problem area. My shoulders were sore as he worked o and manipulated the area skillfully. I have fibromyalgia and discomfort is in my upper back and neck is a daily experience; I feel as if Kevin loosened/broke up/stimulated the area to a greater ROM.

I had never had a massage before yesterday thinking it to be a little frivolous or self indulgent, but I am past that now. I'm amazed at how much better I feel. Kevin did a great job of helping me understand what he was doing and the positive impact it would have. I'm a convert. Thanks, Kevin ????

Kevin, is one of the best body workers l have encountered in Cincinnati. He is very professional on all levels. I felt extremely comfortable with him. I had very specific areas that l came to him for and he worked it out easily. He gives a powerful yet gentle massge. I can't wait to rebook. Thanks Kevin.

I am overall concerned about the results of my experience, and that is always an amazing difference after Kevin's therapy. He is very intelligent, and asks relevant questions about my symptoms, naming the anatomical parts where he is applying his techniques relative to the areas of my discomfort. He is very professional, pleasant and makes the experience comfortable and relaxing. I definitely recommend him to others. He is excellent!

Next Step Theraputics, owned by Kevin O'Melia, is by far the most amazing place in Cincinnati to go to for a beyond excellent theraputic massage experience. Kevin has the rare ability to use his many years of experience to provide each and every client with a one of a kind massage experience catered to the individuals needs. I have been a client for years, and as my pain increased due to spinal disease's and herniated disks, Kevin is still my "go to" for true pain relief. I will also add that Kevin is such a kind, relaxed person, so reguardless of your experiences with massage in the past, he will set you at ease immediately so that your body can enjoy all the amazing skills Kevin has to offer. He has truly been a blessing in my life, and as a client I would follow him where ever he goes. He is truly remarkable!

I have been getting massages for over 30 years from a number of skilled massage therapists. Kevin O'Melia is, by far, the most skilled of all. He is also very kind and gentle in his approach. There have been a number of times, with past therapists, that my arthritic joints felt worse after a massage. Since I have been going to Kevin my joints feel so much better and I am pain free for days afterward. Kevin is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
