Rob Kelly Massage Therapy

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.

Very professional

Rob explained the procedure in detail and was very professional.

I wish I lived here!

Rob is a gifted healer who is open to what you need, whether you know how to explain it or not. With his extensive training, during a session with Rob, he might incorporate a combination of techniques, depending on what your ailments are and what he finds once he’s working on you. This is my 2nd time being treated by Rob, and both times I’ve felt (and looked) amazing afterwards. He’s a treasure.

Highly skilled therapist

Rob is a skilled, highly trained professional. He always addresses any issues I have. Most of the issues come from a long term swim, bike, run habit. I have been a client for several years, traveling from Woodhaven to get to appointments. It is well worth the trip.

Rob Kelly = Pain Relief

I am a former student of Rob’s. When I injured my back recently, he was the first person to enter my mind. His vast knowledge and scientific approach made me feel safe and confident in his techniques. He found the source of my issue and helped relieve my pain and restore my posture. I can’t ask for anything better than that!

The environment is clean and serene, and he then performs his magic expertly. Definitely worth visit after visit, and recommending to a friend. A great value!

Lymphatic Massage

As my first time, I didn’t know what to expect. Literally, within seconds of him starting, I felt it working. It felt as though someone had poured cool water through the veins in my neck and arms.

Common Symptoms That A Massage Therapist May Be Able To Help With

Neck Pain

Neck Pain

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.

Surgery Recovery

Surgery Recovery

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.

Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries

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.

Wrist Pain

Wrist Pain

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.

Auto Accident

Auto Accident

Auto accidents can cause a wide variety of pain and dysfunction from low back pain, neck pain, whiplash or pain elsewhere in the body. Auto insurance companies can be billed directly for massage therapy if it is prescribed by a doctor.

Sinus Congestion

Sinus Congestion

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.

Back Pain

Back Pain

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.

Headaches

Headaches

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.

TMJ Pain

TMJ 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.
