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.

Very happy with my services at Rob Kelly Massage! After first visit I felt better and noticed that it helped with the fluid drainage. I am less sore, less build up and more comfortable with my faja on after the massage.

thank you rob i will see you soon .
by Jeff on Sep 25
Rob listened to my concerns and focused the session on working on my problem areas. Different from other places where they seem to ignore your specific issues and just do their routine. Would highly recommend.
