Received treatment from Mr. Tim Kelly for more than 8 years as an out of network provider. Six months after back surgery, resumed treatment with Mr. Kelly. Received receipts from him & filled claims to my insurance. I paid Tim $95 an hour

Tim has been working on my stressed, stiff body for a couple years now, and I couldn't be happier with his expertise. He clearly did not learn human anatomy solely to pass his tests and obtain certification--he applies that knowledge

Nearly instant gratification. Working in a completely sedentary type position, one day I woke up with severe (very painful!) kink in my neck. Completely in able to move my head to the right, I immediately reached out to Tim at Lifecare for his recommendation. He had immediately recommended I go see a chiropractor to take care of any sort of structural misalignment and then without delay come see him afterwards to work on the soft tissue. Fortunately for me, he had an opening in his otherwise well booked calendar. After the chiropractor there was some relief, but my neck was still very irritated. So I followed direction and made my way onto his table where, with no better way to describe, Tim worked his therapeutic magic and completely regained my range of motion in my neck. This all happened in a matter of 2-3 days just in time that I didnt have to cancel my weekend snowboarding trip. Tim is very professional, knowledgeable, and personable I would highly recommend his healing services to anyone in need. Finally, a BIG thanks to Tim at Lifecare for the quick and smart guidance that lead to my instant pain relief and putting me back on track to tackle the essential activities that help me balance the sedentary-ness of my profession.

I tend to have a lot of stiffness in my neck and upper back. I get great results in relieving that stiffness, including improved mobility, by working with Tim. I have tried several massage therapists in the area but I get the best results from Tim. I would highly recommend him.

I had lived in constant debilitating pain following a misdiagnosed and failed knee replacement for eight years that robbed my of my active life style until I found Tim. \n\nTim was determined to work on my knee and to get to the bottom of the problem. Through Tim's hard work, determination and contacts, I now live a much better and more pain free active life style that I had given up on ever having again.\n\nTim works concentrates on the ""issue"" parts of your body, but addresses you as a whole. He does very deep massage and gets results because he has the strength, dedication and desire to see better results from his work. He has a sincere desire to help those that haven't been able to achieve results from anyone else. He doesn't take a ""let's see what happens approach"", but addresses the problem head on.\n\nMy problem was very complicated after seeing many doctors and having several surgeries. Tim wasn't daunted about my prognosis. He wanted to get to the heart of the problem and he was able to refer me to specialists specific to my problem areas. To make a long story short, he enabled me to get the correct diagnosis and then he has proceeded to improve my flexibility and wellness. I also have a much better neck and mobility because of him. I feel like I have a new life to live again.\n\nI cannot recommend Tim high enough for what he has done for me.

I have been going to Tim on a fairly regular basis for a number of years. He is a magician. I had my second cervical vertebrae fusion a year ago. Due to Tim's fine work, my neck's range of motion has returned. Last week, after an unusually intense session focusing on the neck and upper back, I realized that I could look straight up for the first time since my original neck surgery. If only I had found Tim earlier.

Several months ago I went looking for a massage therapist close to work. A simple web search led me to Tim, and the overwhelmingly good reviews led me to give him a shot. \r\n\r\nI've been nothing but pleased. Tim is professional, friendly, and treats you like a person. I have always felt like he knows exactly what he's doing. I now see Tim for treatment every 2 weeks, and am healthier for it.\r\n\r\nLike the others say, he's usually pretty booked, so you might have to wait a bit for your first appointment, but if decide to see him regularly, he'll help you find a time slot you can regularly schedule in advance.

Being an 18 year old athlete, i am constantly either sore after a long days practice or injured. Tim's massages have always helped me recover quickly, while also taking preventative measures to make sure the occasions don't happen as often. I fully believe without these constant massages, I would not be able to continue in sports.

I came to Tim with a pretty unique situation. I've had 13 surgeries by the age of 29. I've had 5 left knee surgeries including an ACL reconstruction, partial meniscectomies, a microfracture, bone spur removal, and a meniscal allograft. I've had 5 right elbow surgeries. I've had surgery on each hip to correct femeroacetabular impingement (both cam and pincer type) and to repair torn labrums. One of the hip surgeries even included a microfracture to repair a defect in my articular cartilage. In addition to all these surgeries, I have a propensity to grow scar tissue.\n\nAs you can imagine, all of these conditions caused considerable collateral damage. I had such poor mechanics for such a long time that my body became extremely stiff and unbalanced. I developed considerable back pain. I became really frustrated with almost all of the physical therapists I had seen because most of them simply aren't strong enough or skilled enough to handle the level of stiffness my body had reached. Most of them really can't handle a hip as stiff as mine. Keep in mind that I am 6' 2"", 200 lbs. so you can imagine how heavy my leg is. I can't tell you how annoyed I'd get when I'd here a therapist complain about how heavy my leg is. To truly push my leg and hip around to help it regain serious range of motion, it would take serious strength, dexterity, knowledge of kinesiology and body mechanics, and leverage. Tim has all these abilities. Tim has gone through his own serious injuries so he has a unique perspective on the whole rehabilitation process. He too had a long road to recovery and went through the process of finding the right health care practitioners. And when you watch him work, you'll be amazed and inspired. You almost won't be able to believe what he himself went through.\n\nA great example of Tim's skill is watching him work on lateral epicondylitis (also known as tennis elbow). This is an inflammation of the tendons on the outside of the elbow and it is extremely frustrating to recover from. Tim goes through this process where he has you move your fingers in order to find the correct forearm muscles (and thus the tendons at the end of those muscles). Then he goes about ""stripping"" the tendon and then through some other techniques in order to effectively create inflammation in the tendon. This is a good thing because this inflammation helps the tendon truly heal. This is the same effect that is the goal of other more expensive needle based therapies like Platelet Rich Plasma injections and Prolotherapy (both of which I have had). All of this takes great strength, dexterity, and skill. Frankly, after going through the needle based therapies, watching Time go through his process is so impressive.\n\nI seriously wish I had met Tim much earlier on than I did because he has been such a positive force in the rehab process for my last slew of surgeries (I've had 6 within the last 12 months) and he has truly helped me progress much faster and much better than I would have otherwise.

Pros: It would take more than a few words to name them all.

Cons: It's hard to get on Tim Kelley's schedule.

I highly recommend Tim to anybody who is looking for a specialist with the strength and technique necessary for some serious healing.

Tim is by far the best massage therapist I have ever tried. I have more flexibility than I have had for 40 years! He is also working wonders for my wife - eliminating headaches and adding flexibility. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I started going to LifeCare after living 8 months with a stiff neck. After waking up one morning in so much pain, unable to move any part of my body without excrutiating pain in my neck. I first tried muscle relaxers, then a chiropractor and stretches. Until I went to LifeCare did I finally find relief. Tim Kelley, of LifeCare was able to increase my range of motion and over a couple more sessions I was finally pain and stiffness free. It wasn't exactly a plesant, spa-like massage but even after the first session I Knew I was doing the right thing. Tim explained reasons behind his work and muscles he was was working on and how one muscle worked so many other parts. He was very knowledgable and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Tim has slowly but surely helped me become ambulatory again after disk surgery. I have had massage therapy before but none this good. Tim has my 67 year old joints functioning better than they have for many years. Even if you think you don't need massage therapy, I am willing to bet he can change your mind after one session. Very, very highly recommended.\r\nThank You Tim!\r\n- John

I am extremely picky when it comes to getting a massage... A year ago, I was searching for awesome massage in Redmond and I found Tim Kelly via City Search. His clients raved and raved and raved... I immediately became one of his raving fans :-). Over the past 10 years, I have had cronic back, shoulder and neck pain that ended up causing pain in my left arm. When in chronic mode, nothing seemed to bring me relief. I recently realized that I have not had any chronic pain in the last 12 months. Tim spends lots of time on my neck and how it relates to the rest of my body. He has a great technique for finding what muscles need to be worked on. I have an appointment with Tim every two weeks. I am bummed when I have to cancel an appointment due to my travel schedule as I know that means it will be 4 weeks between my massage appointments. Over the past year, I have tried other therapists when I could not get an appointment with Tim, and no one comes close to Tim's skilled technique. It is time for Tim to train others his technique so more people will be able to experience massage heaven.\r\n\r\nWhy am I addicted to massage? My 91 yr old dad always told me that having a massage was one of the best ways to reduce stress and support yourself in today's hetic lifestyle. I think everyone should experience awesome massage on a regular basis instead of treating it as a special occasion!!!

I would not recommend this massage therapist. He never found the trigger points, talked incessantly throughout the massage, and created a weird, uncomfortable vibe.

For almost a year I suffered from a hip/leg pain that radiated from the backside of my hip to the front groin. Some times I couldn't even walk or put pressure on that leg. I have a two year old son and the thought of me carrying him and having my leg literally give out (this happened about every two weeks or so) scared me, not to mention the pain I experienced when it would go ""out"". I went to my internist who said it was possibly bursitis (NOT!) and then went to a physical therapist who gave me a shoe lift insert and painful exercises to perform. I researched massage therapists online and Tim Kelley's name came up with 100% wonderful reviews. After my first visit with Tim, not only did I feel very comfortable with his warm personality, but I was very impressed with his knowledge of the body and patience in explaining the mechanics of how the muscles and body work together. After my first session with Tim it was very clear that I was in need of some deep tissue and muscle work in order to get my leg and hip back into working order. After two sessions, and some discomfort with the deep work that Tim needed to do to train my muscles to work properly again, my leg/hip area felt more stable. It has been five months since I started going to see Tim and I have not had one episode of my leg giving out!! His work is incredible and we have been able to stabilize my leg and hip muscles as well as train the problem area to become stronger. I highly recommend Tim Kelley to anyone who is seeking therapeutic massage.

I had a chronic neck pain for more than 2 years. I had tried several chiropractors and physical therapists, but nothing made a drastic change to my condition. I read reviews about Tim Kelly and decided to try this one out. Tim Kelly is a Pro. I must say that I started seeing the difference after my very first visit. He does a great deep tissue massage that completely relaxes the body, getting rid of all the stress points. He is very knowledgeable, he would inform you about what he is doing and how it would help you. With almost 5-6 visits, my neck pain is reduced by 70-80%.

I've had chronic tension headaches for years. After just a few sessions with Tim, they've stopped. He really has retrained my muscles to allow me to respond differently and to be much more aware of what I'm doing to create tension in the first place. I'm very familiar with body work. This fellow is kind and caring, very knowledgeable and, Boy, is he strong! Those hands can really take you apart and put you back together in the way you'd like. This work is a wonderful assist for changing whatever you'd like in your life. Starting with your body.

Tim Kelly, the maestro...\r\n\r\nAt the end of February 2007, I was in a car crash. I was in a Lexus LS and I was T-boned. Considering how I felt at the time I thought all was pretty well. Three days later the impact of the crash sunk into my body (by the way, the insurance adjuster totaled my car). I did the usual and went to the MD, got the x-rays, and was prescribed to use eight weeks of PT. \r\n\r\nI dutifully went to the assigned PT office. Each time I was subjected to ultrasonic massage, electro-muscle-stimulation, physical exercise and some fluff-and-buff massage. After each visit, I felt as if I'd been in the car crash all over again. I needed to do something different.\r\n\r\nI was referred to Tim Kelly by Pamela Birimisa, my Pilates instructor of 2-1/2 years. (By the way, she and Redmond Pilates are an awesome asset to Redmond, check them out. But that is a different story).\r\n\r\nTim Kelly was unbelievable. His massage technique, which was ridiculously deep (although he claims - and I believe him - to be able to adjust to the situation, including working on babies) was unbelievably successful. Within three visits, the issues that I had from the car crash were resolved. I am still going on a relatively regular schedule, to work on other issues, other baggage, that I have accumulated in 60 plus years on this planet.\r\n\r\nYes, he is still using deep massage techniques to resolve my problems. I have had deep massage before, but Tim is amazingly strong. Sometimes I think he is going to come out the other side from where he is focusing his pressure and energy (that's OK - breathe - breathe into it). He gets to the heart of the problem and it yields to his will. I sincerely appreciate Tim's knowledge, skill and caring. I highly recommend him to anyone who has issues that can be dealt with through massage. \r\n\r\nTim Kelly is truely, a MAESTRO!

I highly recommend him to anyone who has issues that can be dealt with through massage. \r\n\r\nTim Kelly is truely, a MAESTRO!

Pros: You will get your issues resolved. He listens and is knowledgeable, skilled and caring!

Cons: None - Although he is frequently fully booked and you may have trouble getting in.

I'm 55 years old, and started going to Tim Kelley for treatment of a stiff, painful neck - probably due to swimming and lousy posture. After a couple of sessions, my neck range-of-motion was much improved and the pain and stiffness had decreased markedly.\r\n\r\n Tim didn't stop at my neck, and over time has worked to release a lot of years of stress and tension and improve flexibliity in a number of places. His massages are really deep, and yes, at times they hurt a lot, but I've been happy with the results.\r\n\r\n I'm not the easiest patient, but TIm doesn't seem to mind. He also trys to understand the causes of my various aches and pains, and has offered what is probably very good advice on improving my health - if I'd only take it!

Pros: Deep Therapeutic Bodywork, good location and parking

I'm an athletic soccer player/coach in my mid 20's and work long hours daily. After 10 years of continually seeing, spinal specialists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists, I have give up hope on my lower back pain and accepted the fact of this agonizing daily ache because I only received little relief that lasted a day or two! I was using anti-inflammatory pain medications on a daily basis to alleviate the constant pain in my back. There were times where I could not walk for two weeks straight if I carried something heavy or moved in the wrong way. As a matter of fact doctors told me that I could never work out again. I showed up at Tim's office over a year and a half ago. I could barely turn my head from side to side or touch my hands to my knees. I had two bulged, scared, and inflamed L4 and L5 disks. I was unable to sleep with pain medications longer than 5 hours a night due to my brutal pain in my lower back, neck, and shoulders. My wife has convinced me to see the highly recommended Tim Kelley after extensive research on massage therapist in the area. After several sessions with Tim Kelley, I began to experience minimal to rare pain in my lower back. Tim has beyond doubt helped me restore my mobility, reduce pain, and most of all given me hope in the healing powers of the human body. Tim Kelley has helped me get back to working out in the gym, sitting healthier, thinking healthier, stretching, and cooling down. Tim is a healer. If you are seeking help to relieve some major pain to any injury to your body and/or restore mobility and hope TIM KELLEY IS THE SKILLED SPECIALIST.

Pros: Parking is good, service is excellent

I've been going to Tim for close to one year. I don't think I've ever had a massage therapist that knew how to release tension and pain in my neck and shoulders, the way Tim does. I see him every couple of weeks, to stay in good shape. I think it's important to make massage a part of your life, as it can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain pain free. I highly recommend Tim!

Pros: Great Massage with a specialty for head, neck and shoulder massage

Cons: Only con is getting into his schedule

.

My wife got me in to see Tim several months ago for chronic neck and shoulder pain from a bicycling accident several years ago. The tightness and pain was causing debilitating headaches. After having Tim work on my neck, the headaches have gone from frequent to rare and I now see Tim just every 3 weeks or so for ""maintenance."" His techniques get deep into the muscles and help keep me loosened to deal with working long hours, playing hard, and enjoying my life. I agree with the previous posting: ""Tim is truly an excellent massage therapist. Plus, he?s just a really nice, caring, compassionate man."" Tim has the strength and skill to taylor his massages to meet the demands of those needing therapy, not just those wanting to feel good. Tim has plans to expand his always-in-demand practice and is making sure he finds other therapists who share his skill, caring, and passion for helping others. This should help relieve some of the current difficulties in getting on the schedule. I would highly recommend Lifecare Therapeutic Massage.

Pros: Great bodywork, reliable and skilled therapist, easy parking, clean facility

Cons: So in demand that scheduling an appointment is sometimes hard.

I have been going to Tim for about 9 months now. He has helped me greatly with my chronic (off-and-on for years) neck and shoulder pain. I scheduled my first visit through his website on a day when I was in so much pain that I could barely move. Almost immediately after seeing him, I was able to resume my active lifestyle, which includes 10 hour days at work, as well as golf, lifting weights, and long distance walking . I see Tim about once every two weeks, and he helps keeps me in shape to enjoy my life. Tim is truly an excellent massage therapist. Plus, he?s just a really nice, caring, compassionate man. I would highly recommend Lifecare Therapeutic Massage. \r\n\r\n

Cons: None that I can think of

Tim Kelley provides not just excellent therapy but also genuine compassion. He is 100% dedicated to helping me achieve a pain-free life. LifeCare is an appropriate name for his business because he truly cares about you. Tim is also extremely knowledgeable. He explains exactly why you're experiencing pain and he gets directly to the root of the problem. I went to 15 sessions with a physical therapist last year. I had some mild relief and decent progress. However, after my first visit with Tim I had great relief and it has only gotten better with each visit . I could not be happier.

LifeCare massage was a lifesaver during my pregnancy. I had been getting regular massages before, so I was able to really see how it affected my body when I was pregnant. I struggled with sciatic nerve pain, and I swear I would have been completely miserable without the body work. I can't imagine what it would have been like with out massage. I tell all my newly pregnant friends to start getting massages before they have problems so that it never gets bad. It is so much better to prevent it than try to fix it after you are in pain. I highly recommend LifeCare Therapeutic Massage, it is amazing what it can do for your body and your life.

I've been working with Tim Kelley for over six years now. After many years of chronic neck problems and accompanying migraines, Tim has worked with me to get them under control. The term ""deep tissue"" takes on a whole new meaning when working with Tim, but it's what I need to get my chronic poor posture realigned. My neck problems and migraines are much better.\r\nHe's also been a great life coach and convinced me to get the proper nutrition and exercise-- resulting in a 30 pound weight loss, plusI'm starting a Pilates program to correct my posture. Tim is one of the most caring people I've ever met, in addition to being probably the most talented, skilled and knowledgeable massage therapists I've ever worked with over the years.\r\nYou can't go wrong with Tim, but be prepared to work hard and listen to what he says.\r\nPam Miller

I have being seing Tim Kelley of Lifecare Massage for about seven years now. The improvement in my overall well being, as well as specific muscular issues were immediate and life changing. I have always suffered with a stiff neck and back due to stress and job related strain. Tim's outstanding work has increased my range of motion in my neck and my specific pain issues have considerably improved. He is thorough in explaining the procedures of massage therapy and offers extra tips on how to maintain one's overall physical well-being between visits. I prefer deep tissue massage, which Tim is excellent at. I am writing this review because I realize there are many who would benefit as I have from his exceptional dedication to his craft and the life altering benefits of his therapy. Lifecare Massage is highly recommended.

LifeCare Massage will actually do deep tissue massage that gets results, not the spa style ""feel good"" massage. Tim is very knowledgeable and his work will enable your body to repair itself and get better. I have visited several doctors and chiropractors for my neck and back pain and not experienced the results I have from LifeCare.\r\n\r\nI had a cronic history of neck and lower back pain. I have been going to LifeCare for six months now and no longer have any problems with my neck or back. After a visit I feel calm, relaxed and pain free and look forward to my next visit to LifeCare. \r\n\r\n

As Tim's first client, I can say without a doubt he is a life saver!! A recurring back problem brought me to Tim over 5 yrs. ago and I've been a grateful patient ever since! My work schedule is very demanding physically, and Tim's massage therapy has enabled me to continue to work without missing a beat. Tension headaches, which have plagued me my entire life, are now a thing of the past and his treatments actually make this 37 year old feel young again.......Thanks Tim!!

I'm an endurance athelete in my mid 30's and work long hours-when I showed up at Tim's office I could barely turn my head from side to side or touch my hands to my knees. I had micro-tears on my hamstrings from yoga, L4-L5 inflamation in my lower back and severe pain in my neck and shoulders from long hours at work. I was a mess! Tim has helped to restore my mobility and eliminate my pain. No more neck and shoulder pains and I'm training for an Olympic Distance Triathalon! Tim is a true healer. If you are looking for help to relieve pain and restore mobility this is THE EXPERT. Dedicated, Experienced and Cariing.

Working with Tim has been safe, comfortable and given me hope in working with my body after years of assorted chronic conditions. I learn something new about how the human body works with every session. Tim is great about both challenging me and working with me where I am at. Reasonable prices for top notch care. I would highly reccomend LifeCare to anyone, especially those looking to make significant positive changes in their physical state.

I have been receiving massages from Tim for a little over a year now, and they have made a huge difference in my life. \n\nI am a gymnast, and always have had some sort of injury or sore muscles bothering me. Most recently I was suffering from extreme low back pain. Without frequent massages from Tim, I believe that I would still be in pain and not able to continue my training. \n\nI've learned a great deal about my body thanks to Tim and also consider massage to be a vital part of my gymnastics training.

After 6-1/2 years of physical therapy, I finally found relief at LifeCare Massage with full body massage. My therapist offered me a treatment plan that focused on my injuries. He helped relieve me from years of severe and constant back pain due to tired and injured muscles - I no longer use pain relievers! It also helped with headaches and I benefited from increased circulation, flushing toxins from my body, as well as complete relaxation. After my massage, I feel renewed, calm and pain free. LifeCare Massage is a safe, relaxed, warm, and friendly environment coupled with flexible, skilled & knowledgeable staff. They helped me achieve the best possible physical health. Today, massage therapy has become an integral part of my well being it keeps me pain free. Highly recommend the full body massage.

I found Lifecare Massage from a friend's recommendation after experiencing many disappointing chiropractors and not finding a message therapist that could make a difference in how my muscles felt a day after the massage. Lifecare was able to change all of that, and i'm going to continue being a client going forward. HIGHLY recommended to anyone seeking a professional clinic with nearly-guaranteed positive results no matter how tough your situation!

I have been using the services of Tim Kelley for more than 5 years and have found his work to be superior in all aspects of quality, professionalism, consistency and therapeutic value. I have tried at least four other providers in the Puget Sound area during the past six years and would be hard pressed to consider any other clinic than this one.
