“A star does not compete with other stars around it; it just shines.” ― Matshona Dhliwayo

Becoming a massage therapist has been one of the greatest things I have ever done. I started work at a local chiropractor's office, in Philadelphia . I began to see people, as more than "users behind a computer." People have REAL pain in their lives. Pain that extends beyond the physical into the innermost parts of a person.

Becoming a massage therapist has been one of the greatest things I have ever done. I started work at a local chiropractor's office, in Philadelphia . I began to see people, as more than "users behind a computer." People have REAL pain in their lives. Pain that extends beyond the physical into the innermost parts of a person. The moment I got hands-on, I realized I've been preparing myself for this all these years, with all of my experiences, troubles and my joys. I'm effective "fixer", I realized the gift I had.  Being open to help people was a start and being told after each massage session, great hands Justin, hearing this motivated me. Now, I can't wait to see every client who walks through the door and wonder how I will help in renew them.

Pain is the body's way of saying, 'something is wrong, please pay attention.'"

This calling into massage therapy has taken me on a tour of disciplines. Each of my career path choices, from service, to my hours of study in Biological Sciences, to a Bachelors degree in Psychology has helped shape my understanding of health and wellness. Each choice has brought me into alignment with the strong, intuitive healer that I have always been.

From my own personal experience, past injuries or subconscious stress/irritation can keep the body from its normal, free-working range of motion. A release of those tensions can restore the body to its natural, joyful, pain-free balance.

I believe that an alternative solution to pharmaceutical or even surgical remedies is to view pain as a symptom; and go looking for the underlying condition. By unlocking areas of both physical and emotional trauma, we allow the body to heal and transform itself. That is the work; that is the journey.

Advance Massage Therapy and Bodywork

Hello! My name is Justin Shelley. I’m a national board certified massage therapist with over fifteen years of professional practice in Advanced Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. My experience includes practices in health clubs and spas in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, and presently in a private practice close to Center City Philadelphia and my home, where I am thrilled to spend more quality therapeutic time with a growing base of long-term clients. My therapeutic sessions are designed to reduce headaches, ease muscular tension, and manage and eliminate pain throughout the body, especially the neck, shoulders, and lower back. Clients are thus better equipped to cope with a range of physical and emotional challenges like depression, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and drug withdrawal, and enjoy an increased range of motion along with a reduction of pain and associated emotional symptoms. My other credentials include national certification in Personal Fitness Training, beginning with my personal preparation for the Physical Readiness Test and Swimming Qualification for active military service in the United States Navy. My additional advanced training at the National Personal Training Institute includes classroom and hands-on experience developing results and goal oriented fitness programs for individual and group clients to improve physical fitness and stamina, learn to live a healthy lifestyle, and to motivate and inspire life-changing habits regardless of physical fitness or ability. Most importantly, I am trained to give thorough assessments and interpret physical data to create custom fitness and nutrition plans to support fitness goals, health, safety, and efficiency.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Aromatherapy, or Wellness services

by Mack on Sep 15
48 yo man here, with a long standing injury and chronic pain. I've had well over 100 massages, and this was definitely in the top 5 of all time. I kept thinking during the massage, "man, this guy works really hard!" He communicates well, and takes bodywork seriously. When I left, my shoulders were back down near where they should be, and I felt so much better. As he said, 'it was a great start'--there's more work needed to get my body in fighting shape, so I'm booking my next appointment already. If you need deep tissue work, and if you have problems related to an old injury, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Really intense massage, in a good way :) Definitely had increased range of motion the following day :)

Justin is an incredible massage therapist. He puts care and knowledge into every massage, along with his stellar strong hands. There is nothing that isn't amazing about his massage.

Best massage I've ever had! Justin got all the knots and had the perfect pressure! 5 stars all around!

Justin is an amazing, knowledgeable therapist. He had my range of motion and pain in my neck and shoulder completely gone by the end of one session with him! If you want a massage that does more than make you feel relaxed, go see Justin!

Justin was great! His hands are magical almost like he can read your muscles. Will definitely be returning in the future for more! Thanks Justin!

Justin is incredible! I had my first massage for fibromyalgia and he made sure I was comfortable and at ease with the experience. I left more relaxed than I had been in years.

Superb massage with targeted therapy for some back and leg sciatic nerve issues. Excellent pain relief and a clean, professional atmosphere. The best massage therapist I've had the pleasure of working with! Highly recommend.

Justin has changed my life! Thanks to him. He helped me over the last 3 years with medical massage and my pain is gone. Now I can turn my neck without pain. Justin also corrected my posture and give me some exercises and stretches to maintain my posture. Without Justin, my neck and back pain would have driven me crazy, and would not be able to do anything except lie in my bed. Thank again Justin!
