Hi everyone and welcome to Kelpo Keho!
My name is Johan Jaumain and I am a Sports Massage Therapist from France. Having recently moved to Helsinki, Finland, I decided to start my own massage practice and the Loop Martial Arts Center felt like the right place to kick off a new adventure. I currently train Brazilian JiuJitsu there and I recommend you check it out here.
I studied both Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapy in London, England specialising in Strength and Conditioning and recovery post injury. During these years, I crossed the path of semi professional football players, rugby players, martial artists, long distance runners, bodybuilders and kettlebell lifters perfecting my trade as a physical therapist.
At Kelpo Keho, I address all kinds of aches and pains with different techniques ranging from deep tissue massage to soft tissue release, myofascial release and joint manipulation and mobilisation.
Also, I will often use the NeuroKinetic Therapy® testing protocol (I am a Level Three practitioner) to find out the root cause of your issue and make a decision on how to address and correct it thereafter.
Here is a quick word about NeuroKinetic Therapy from Thomas Wells, certified master NKT® practitioner and instructor:
“Most of the pain we experience in our bodies is the result of compensation patterns. Too much of this. Too little of that. NKT uses specialized sequences of muscle tests and soft-tissue releases to rapidly assess and resolve these patterns at the source; the motor control center of the brain. The result is reduced pain, improved range of motion and better overall performance. Combined with specially-assigned home exercises, NKT can often offer results where other modalities have failed.”
Sounds a bit technical? No worries, here is what to expect:
After an examination of your needs and a body assessment, we will work together to improve soft tissue condition and joint mobility and aid to recover from injury or surgery if needs be. I will use the appropriate method of treatment that suits your condition and I will also offer you advice on a range of remedial exercises and lifestyle factors aimed at speeding up recovery, preventing injury recurrence as well as improving posture, performance and function.
