Creating Balance Through Touch

I have been a massage therapist for over twenty years and I love helping people feel better. My experience with massage started out by receiving massage to help me relax and decrease general tightness.

I have been a massage therapist for over twenty years and I love helping people feel better. My experience with massage started out by receiving massage to help me relax and decrease general tightness. I was driving a delivery truck at the time and that job definitely took its toll on my body. Massage therapy helped relieve the job related pain and tightness so much I referred some of my coworkers to get a professional massage. A few years after I started receiving massage I had a sports related shoulder injury. My massage therapist helped to rehabilitate my shoulder injury in just a few short months. I was so impressed by the results I asked where she went to school to learn massage and three months later I was enrolled in massage therapy school. Twenty-two years later I am still loving it. Clients come to me with specific issues like headaches, lymphedema, sports injuries and some come for relaxation. No matter what the issue is, I will utilize all of my training and skills to help them feel better. I am a big believer in “what goes around, comes around” so my goal is to help my clients in whatever way I can.

My 87 year old Mother slept that night after the evening massage without coughing until she woke around 7 am. Usually she would cough throughout the nite. His skill set is amazing and I want to take her in again next week.

Lymphatic drainage massage very relaxing and different from other massages I've had. I enjoyed it and recommend trying it!

The slow elevator. But the front door security with intercom makes you feel safer.

After having a major surgery, I was extremely sore and I was afraid to get a massage done. Mr. Kelly was very gentle but made sure he got the job done! THANK YOU

Rob was very professional and kind. It is obvious he takes care to provide good experiences, with attention to detail including ambient music. This was my first experience with lymphatic drainage technique. It did wonders for my persistent back issue, which I really did not expect.
