I'm a Certified MyoKinesthetic (MYK) massage therapist and practitioner in Advanced Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. MYK therapy focuses on pain relief by improving human movement and posture through natural developmental sequences. As a certified MYK practitioner, I help patients with a variety of orthopaedic, neurological, neuromuscular, and other medical conditions to improve their posture, range of motion, muscle function, and decrease pain.
Hello! My name Justin Shelley. I’m a national board certified massage therapist with over fifteen years of professional practice in Advanced Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. My experience includes practices in health clubs,spas and with chiropractors in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, and presently in a private practice close to Center City Philadelphia and my home, where I am thrilled to spend more quality therapeutic time with a growing base of long-term clients. My therapeutic sessions are designed to reduce headaches, ease muscular tension, and manage and eliminate pain throughout the body, especially the neck, shoulders, and lower back. Clients are thus better equipped to cope with a range of physical and emotional challenges like depression, PTSD, fibromyalgia, and drug withdrawal, and enjoy an increased range of motion along with a reduction of pain and associated emotional symptoms. My other credentials include national certification in Personal Fitness Training,
beginning with my personal preparation for the Physical Readiness Test and Swimming Qualification for active military service in the United States Navy. My additional advanced training at the National Personal Training Institute includes classroom and hands-on experience developing results and goal
oriented fitness programs for individual and group clients to improve physical fitness and stamina, learn to live a healthy lifestyle, and to motivate and inspire life-changing habits regardless of physical fitness or ability. Most importantly, I am trained to give thorough assessments and interpret physical data to create custom fitness and nutrition plans to support fitness goals, health, safety, and efficiency.
I'm trained in medical massage and the modalities I offer in medical massage:

I have been in plumbing business for years and the repeated labor has done a number on my body. Over the past few years, I have tried several different massage therapists but none have come close to providing me the comfort and relief that Justin has accomplished. His personal approach at massage special techniques that he uses– reaches all the deep aches and locked muscles leaving me in a place of complete relaxation. I highly recommend Justin for your next massage – you will not be disappointed!
This was by far the best massage I've ever had. He is incredibly talented and able to target the problem areas. I have never had someone work on my neck so well. I will definitely be returning again.
I injured my back 3 years ago and had to stop running marathons, half-marathons- no running at all due to excruciating pain! The pain kept me awake and was with me most of the time during the day. I have sought help over these years from a physical therapist who I saw nearly every week for two years, an orthopedist with multiple steroid injections, multiple massage therapists, a personal trainer to strengthen the muscles, an acupuncturist, and there chiropractors. As soon as after the first session without Justin, I could tell that what he does is completely different. I have been seeing him for 6 months now. Not only was he able to diagnose the true source and cause of my pain, but thru bodywork and giving me correcting strength and movement exercises, I am virtually pain-free and running for the first time in 3 years. I am in debt to Justin for changing my life! Justin is truly passionate about what he does and how he helps people. He has an infectious desire to continue to learn....
