Rob Kelly Massage is a massage therapist that specializes in reducing stress, decreasing headaches, lessening neck pain and address back pain. I am a pain relief specialist that provides clinical style massage therapy using specific and proven techniques without losing the art of massage. My clients include athletes, industry professionals, teachers and children. They choose therapeutic massage to help them decompress from aches and pains of daily life, heal from injuries, prepare for a sports event or just relax. I utilize a number of different massage techniques such as CranioSacral Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, relaxation massage and fascial mobilization techniques. As a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, I utilize lymphatic drainage techniques to help reduce edema and some of the symptoms of severe edemas or lymphedema. My office is in beautiful downtown Ypsilanti, MI in the historic Centennial Plaza.
Common Symptoms That A Massage Therapist May Be Able To Help With
Neck pain is one of the most common complaints. This type of pain can lead to headaches, TMJ pain or even arm and shoulder issues. CranioSacral Therapy, lymph drainage and fascial mobilization techniques are very effective ways of treating neck pain.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction affects a large number of people. Pain, clicking in the joint or not being able to open or close the jaw can be some of the symptoms. Trigger point release, stretching and interoral massage can help treat TMJ dysfunction symptoms.
Sinus congestion can cause headaches, ear pain or even eye pain. Pressure point therapy, lymph massage or facial massage can help reduce the pressure caused from sinus congestion.
Whether it is a elective surgery such as a Brazilian Butt lift, a tummy tuck, liposuction or more urgent surgeries, massage can help with recovery. Lymphatic drainage can help tremendously to reduce the swelling that generally follows those types of procedures.
Carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries can be debilitating for many people. Stretching, fascial mobilization techniques and trigger point release are a few techniques that can help relieve many types of wrist pain.
Athletes use their body in ways that can cause tight muscles, swelling and fibrotic connective tissues. Sports massage can help to increase range of motion, decrease swelling and help with efficient movement patterns.
Low and mid back pain are very common issues that can be addressed with many types of massage. Stretching, trigger point release and fascial mobilization techniques are just a few that can treat back pain.
Lymphedema is a disease where there is a build up of fluid due to a number of potential problems. Genetic issues, trauma or post cancer can be a few of the causes. I am a certified lymphedema therapist and I have been trained to help people dealing with this issue.
Migraine, tension and sinus headaches can all be addressed with massage therapy. Trigger point release, CranioSacral Therapy, lymph drainage and relaxation massage can be used to lessen headaches and sometimes alleviate them completely.
