We are pleased to announce that Kelly Nickel is offering massage therapy out of our office. Kelly is an experienced LMT and her specialties include deep tissue massage; sports massage; neuromuscular and trigger point therapy; and TMJ Dysfunction therapy.

Here is a brief bio from Kelly:

My interest in massage therapy first began when I was pregnant with my twin boys. Suffering from horrible back pain and hyperemesis, I began receiving weekly massage and chiropractic care which helped me ease the pain and to keep a meal down! Due to this care, I was able to carry my healthy boys to almost 36 weeks and had a relatively easy delivery, I also bounced back quickly which helped me keep up with them!

After having my children, I received my massage therapy certification from SHI Integrative Medical Massage School in Lebanon, Ohio. I began working with chiropractors immediately which has taught me so much more about how the body works. I am continually amazed at how each person’s body is so unique and responds to different forms of therapies. I am grateful to still be working in a field that I love for almost 12 years and continue to learn new forms of therapies. I tend to use a variety of techniques according to how a patient’s body is responding.

Specifically this may include: Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction therapy; Swedish, sports and deep tissue massage; trigger point therapy and neuromuscular therapy including active/passive release. I do also still love giving a wonderful relaxation massage and am happy to introduce hot stone massage at Thrive Chiropractic soon! My mission is to help people remove any issue that hinders living life to the fullest. This may be a specific injury or just overall stress present in their body. I look forward to working with you!
