Integrative Manual Treatments, Therapeutic Massage & Osteopathy
Therapeutic massages are administered by Registered Massage Therapists. The intent is to assess the soft tissue and joints of the body for the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain. Through various types of manipulations and techniques, massage therapists can develop, maintain, rehabilitate, or augment physical function, or relieve pain while improving circulation and the immune system. There are many variations of massage and several different techniques Pinewood uses to treat clients.
The therapeutic massage services offered at Pinewood can address a variety of medical issues including fatigue, insomnia, sore muscles, anxiety, chronic stress, muscle and skeletal disorders or injuries, postural misalignments, vertigo, headaches, whiplash associated disorder, pre and post operation treatments, circulation, and more. Furthermore, Pinewood's therapeutic massage treatments can work in harmony with other services offered by Pinewood's practitioners, such as acupuncture and osteopathic techniques.
