I been seeing Kelly O'rourke, LMP at Belltown Healing Arts for over 5 years. I first saw her because I had very limited range of motion in my
neck and shoulders I saw my MD about it and she said "you should get that massaged out." So I found Kelly.

I saw her several times for that condition and she was able to work on my neck and shoulder muscles so eventually I was able to turn my head normally and my range of motion got back to normal. What a relief-turning your head without pain!

I have continued to see her over the last several years as I spend too much time in front of a computer screen and have naturally tight muscles in my neck and shoulders. What an improvement! I'm sure I will never win the floor exercise at the Olympics but thanks to Kelly's work my neck and shoulders can move normally.

She is compassionate as she works.
If she senses I might be uncomfortable with the level of pressure she will ask about it. She will change her approach so as to make me as comfortable as possible. Because she is highly skilled she finds a way to work my very tight muscles, taking them from frayed tangled gnarled knots to relaxed well functioning normal muscle making what should be very painful to a very pleasant and nearly euphoric experience.

She is also a wealth of fitness knowledge. She has taught me how to stretch when I'm not seeing her so I don't have to see her quite so often. She has also taught me about icing muscles to help prevent and improve injuries.

Her office is a a classic old brick building in Belltown. It has a European feel to it and is overall comfortable, safe, clean and professional.

I always look forward to seeing her for my massage appointments for the obvious reasons that the specific muscles that need attention always feel so much better. But also when I leave I have a very strong sense of "well being" thanks to her massage. It's an incredible way to start the day! In fact I can feel my neck and shoulders tightening up as I type this - I think I will give her a call and set up my next appointment. I highly recommend it.

Being an active older adult (54), I occasionally come up with an injury. This particular time it was my lower back and in a spot that was difficult for me to locate but deep inside. Usually I could shake this off, but this painful ache would not go away and after a few weeks turned into spasms. Thank goodness for JoAnna at Belltown Healing Arts. She knew right where to go during my treatment and after a few sessions I was completly pain free 4 days later. Belltown Healing Arts is warm, friendly, professional and clean with a top-notch staff. I gladly recommend Belltown Healing Arts to anybody looking for compassionate, gentle healing.

On Jan 2nd'08 I went to "Belltown Healing Arts" to receive a deep tissue massage on my neck from KELLY O'ROURKE, LMP. I have a c-sprain neck injury and was hoping the massage would relax It. Kelly said the neck massage wouldn't take long and asked "are there any other muscles you want massaged?" I said sure and gave her permission to massage my shoulders as well because they were feeling a little tense.

I had never had any sort of massage before and didn't know what to expect, I assumed that a deep tissue massage of any sort was supposed to hurt a bit so I said very little during the massage, now I wish I had.

After the massage Kelly said "I hoped this helped", and suggested I "go home and ice it. I thought that was a bit odd considering I had just paid her $70 to help relax my injured NECK. I had NEVER suffered from any back or shoulder pain nor any sort of injury's prior to this massage. Shouldn't a certified LMP know if he or she has relaxed their client or further injured their muscles/ect instead of assuming they'd helped? .

I left her office and went homing trusting that the pain and stiffness would subside within a few hours after I'd iced it as she suggested, it didn't. I started having shooting pain and muscle spasms in my upper right backside and shoulder. So I then looked in the mirror and noticed that my backside on the right was a mountain of bumps. I had to go to an urgent care clinic to treat the muscle spasms.

After examining it they said my upper right backside and shoulder is inflamed. I repeat I DID NOT HAVE any shoulder or upper back pain PRIOR to the massage (not even prior injury's) and my ALREADY SPRAINED NECK felt even more stiff than it had BEFORE the massage.

Now after 10+ days of missed work, $60 of pain killers, and $60 of visits to see neck/shoulder/back specialist I'm still in constant pain. I'll have to start physical therapy once the spasms/inflammation subside. I am in the process of preparing to file a lawsuit for pain, suffering, and lost wages.

If I were you I'd suggest shopping around before you choose a massage therapist. Just because their a LMP doesn't necessarily mean they're any good. If they can see you right away I'd keep looking, the best massage therapists will typically have a waiting list. If you are recovering from an injury you should go to a certified sports massage therapist. I wish I'd waited or I wouldn't be living in this nightmare.
