Kelly Fleming completed her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy at Western Michigan University in 2005. Since, she has practiced in a variety of settings ranging from large urban academic teaching and research hospitals to small private practices. She has 8+ years of experience in the acute care setting but shifted her primary focus to hand therapy in 2009. She was Chicago-based from 2005-2012 and practiced at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Orthopaedic Institute, and Athletico, building a well rounded foundation as a therapist. In 2012 Kelly moved to the DC area, and worked as a hand therapist for Medstar NRH Regional Rehabilitation and as an acute care therapist at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital until 2014. As of 2013, Kelly began shifting her focus to holistic wellness and therapy at Body Connect Health and Wellness where she was employed until 2016. Kelly has taken a special interest throughout her career in holistic and naturopathic wellness and has practiced MFR and craniosacral therapies since graduate school. She now is the sole proprietor of her own private practice in Washington, DC, and sees clients part-time from The Viva Center in DuPont Circle on a monthly basis.
Kelly enjoys treating a wide variety of patients and has a deep commitment to facilitating overall health and well being through a comprehensive treatment approach, including ergonomic evaluations. She enjoys treating all ages and conditions and specializes in treating chronic pain conditions as well as the upper extremities. She particularly enjoys treating head and neck issues, TMJ, headaches/migraines, sinus problems, and upper extremity diagnoses such as thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and shoulder impingement/rotator cuff issues.
Kelly is a practitioner of John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR), John Upledger Craniosacral Therapy (CST), and Jean-Pierre Barral Visceral Manipulation in addition to traditional hand-therapy practice and OT interventions.
