MICHAEL KELLY

Im a Blue Mountains local, who loves trail running and outdoor adventuring including rock climbing, mountain biking, canyoning and camping. I am passionate about sports remedial and recovery massage and have worked with the NSW swifts professional netball team, also I currently work as a remedial massage therapist with the Penrith Panthers first grade team where I have helped develop the very best NRL players in Australia. It has be a privilege and an eye opening experience to work within the cutting edge systems of the Panthers, where we work with some of the very best physiotherapists and physical therapists in Australia. This experience has given me access to industry leading techniques in myofascial release, trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, PNF stretching, joint mobilisation and cross fibre techniques to name a few. I use these techniques in combination and they are extremely effective for sports recovery and remedial massage, injury rehabilitation, pain and stress relief, stretching and loosening tight muscles, improving physical performance, injury prevention and enhancing general well being. My other passion is assisting my clients to achieve optimal postural alignment which is often out of alignment due to various factors including lifestyle, age and repetitive exercises that neglect the antagonist muscle groups which are responsible for keeping our body in a balanced posture. Poor posture is a major contributor to pain, injury, discomfort and suboptimal athletic performance. To achieve a great posture for you I work with the very best physical and natural therapists in the Blue Mountains and together we make up a team that can help you achieve your health, performance and well being goals.
