Welcome to Healing Touch Acupressure and Massage! At Healing Touch, I am committed to providing acupressure and massage therapy in the most professional manner in either my clinic or as homecare for clients who are unable to visit the clinic. My goal is to deliver an outstanding and personalized experience to clients in terms of stress/pain relief. I provide massage services including, but not limited to, general whole body Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, hot stone massage, chair massage, medical massage and myofascial release. Every session will be personalized with polymodal approach as necessary.

Acupressure is a part of the Chinese Medicine like acupuncture. Acupressure works at physical, emotional as well as spiritual levels. Thus, there are remedies for vast array of disorders. After initial assessment and feedback, specific points on meridians are used to unblock the energy. With a license in massage therapy and certification in acupressure and over 20 years of experience in Acupressure, I am well equipped to alleviate pain or discomfort in neck, upper and lower back, shoulders, knees, ankles and many other ailments. I will incorporate acupressure treatment in my services to reach out to clients who are suffering from localized aches and pains (acute or chronic), and would prefer to receive alternative therapy while fully clothed and seated in a chair. Acupressure sessions do not involve applications of oils or lotions.

Acupressure and Massage Therapy can:

  • Improve health and wellness through its effects on the physical, mental and social well-being of an individual
  • Assist in reducing the symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Help improve sleep by relaxing body and mind
  • Serve as beneficial part of an integrative treatment plan for those who suffer with fibromyalgia syndrome
  • Reduce low-back pain and increase flexibility and range of motion
  • Benefit those who participate in exercise programs, as well as athletes in training
  • Relieve tension headaches and decrease frequency of migraine
  • Aid in pain relief and ease medication dependence
  • Improve the quality of life for those in hospice and palliative care and also aid in post-operative pain relief

All services are by appointment only. Healing Touch Acupressure and Massage covers a wide array of services, including:

Modified Thai Massage

Modified Thai massage involves stretching, mobilization, and compression for pain relief and improved range of motion. The client stays in their clothes. This is sometimes more effective than a deep tissue massage.


Specific areas on our hands and feet represent other parts of our body, including internal organs. Massaging just those areas on the hands and feet can have a positive effect on the whole body.

Read what some of our clients have to say about Healing Touch:

Nyaya had a friendly attitude and a comforting manner that instantly helped me relax. He was attentive in listening to what I had to say in terms of expectations and questions, based on which he later explained what he would be doing and why. He exhibited a good judgement in determining the appropriate treatment for my condition. He also encouraged me to provide feedback in terms of which interventions/techniques caused pain and which ones seemed to help. The massage session was great. Nyaya displayed high degree of professionalism, thoroughness and precision in movements. I had great relief from pain and felt rejuvenated at the end of the session. I would highly recommend Nyaya not only as an efficient masseur but also as a healer!

—Swapna R.

Starting around 2007 I began experiencing symptoms I can only describe as slow digestion. I would eat a meal, then hours later I could still tell it was just stuck in my stomach, going nowhere. This was accompanied by sustained and rather foul-smelling belching. It was very uncomfortable, embarrassing and I felt sick in a very vague, nonspecific way. I knew that going to a regular doctor would probably just mean pills and things I should avoid eating.

As the years went by I did start avoiding lots of foods. I basically put myself on a GERD diet, limiting consumption of coffee, chocolate, ANYTHING fatty or oily, fried stuff…This made me feel sad and broken at meal times. I was really becoming resigned to a life of this when I met Nyaya.

Enter Nyaya. I had never heard of acupressure, and when he started applying it to my problem I just felt confused. The treatment seemed so superficial—it was just his hands. I was open enough to give it a shot but in my head I was thinking that this would be another thing I would check off on a list of all the things I had tried doing to fix my debilitating and embarrassing health problem. It took just a couple of weeks, but I remember the joy I felt as I slowly started eating meals that should have triggered the belching and all the rest and it just did not happen. Coffee again! A steak! Pizza! They aren't foods to be eating frequently, but just to once again have the freedom to enjoy them!

Nyaya not only demonstrated that he is a highly skilled acupressure practitioner, but he is also a trustworthy friend and a remarkably gentle person to be around. I whole-heartedly recommend his services.

—Ivan P.

For over a year, I had a horrible pain in my left shoulder. Even after visiting multiple chiropractors and massage therapists, the pain would come back within hours. Having worked with Nyaya and knowing his background, I finally asked if he could possibly help. Within 10 minutes, he was able to relieve the pain and it hasn't returned since. I highly recommend Nyaya to anyone with chronic pain.

—Dan D.

I had a five treatment message therapy sessions with Nyaya for pain that I have experienced for two years in my shoulder, neck, and back. After the first session, I felt a drastic difference than I ever have felt before. Nyaya was able to loosen my knots and alleviate my pain dramatically with each and every session. By the end of the fifth session, all of the pain in my shoulder, neck, and back were gone. Thanks to Nyaya I no longer experience sharp excruciating pain anymore! I would definitely recommend Nyaya Kelkar to all my friends and family. Nyaya is also very professional and very accommodating. Thank you, Nyaya!

—Jason L.

I had severe back pain because of playing sports. I went to Nyaya and he did accupressure for 10 minutes on my vertebral column and wow magic worked. He really possess right technique and compassion to make it work. I highly recommend him.

—Kamlesh P.

What a great place to go if you want to leave feeling better! Nyaya Kelkar is truly wonderful. Not only does he have healing hands but he is kind, compassionate and highly skilled at what he does. He has deep understanding about how acupressure works and a profound capacity for empathy. Thank you Nyaya for helping me when I was suffering with knee and leg pain.

—Anita G.

This was my first massage and my first time meeting Nyaya. From the initial contact he was very professional and very responsive in scheduling an appointment. I might add his schedule was very flexible to try to accommodate my schedule. The office is very clean and very comfortable. Nyaya made sure to take time at the beginning to understand why I was there and what I wanted to work on. He makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. The actual massage was awesome. He was sure to check with me through to make sure I was comfortable. I felt great after. I already schedule my next appointment for next week before leaving! I would definitely recommend Nyaya and Healing Touch.

—Mark M.

Nyaya was very professional and always made sure to ask if he could customize the massage in any way to fit my needs. He is an excellent massage therapist.

—Chad C.

No words to describe how great this guy is. Never in my life have I felt so relaxed. I even scheduled another appointment. Definitely recommend

—Rachel S.

Nyaya is the best! He is able to get all my neck and back knots out in one visit. I’ve been going to him for over a year and highly recommend him. Thank you Nyaya!


—Stacy K

Nyaya is the best around. Anytime I need my back or neck fixed, he's the only one I let touch me. He is the top of the top

—Frederick W

Nyaya does a great deep tissue massage and works all my knots out. I always feel better afterwards!

—Brandon D

I can’t speak highly enough of Mr. Kelkar. I was in growing pain from a series of problems and was fortunate enough to stumble on his business. Within a half an hour of contact Mr. Kelkar had gone well out of his way to fit me in last minute (very next day). He was remarkably thorough in his review of my symptoms and history and was very accommodating in reviewing his treatment plans with me. The massage and acupressure itself was absolutely the best treatment I’ve received: he identified and resolved issues that have gone unnoticed by my previous therapists. After the massage he gave me a variety of home remedies and stretches to use to help avoid twisting myself into knots going forward. Besides raw talent, it was also a very comfortable and relaxing experience overall. Already scheduling round two!

—Steve S.
