You’re in Good Hands
You don’t have to take our word for it. Here is what our patients have to say about our kinesiology services.
I’ve had amazing improvement since I began kinesiology sessions with Shireen. I have a hip labral tear injury and was referred to do kinesiology after doing physiotherapy. I’ve tried numerous practitioners from different disciplines over my many years of injury/pain management; Shireen is by far one of the best. She is thorough, knowledgeable, supportive and always available when I have questions. I’ve gone from re-learning how to walk (twice) to doing a Tough Mudder race, and I couldn’t have come this far without doing Kinesio. The strength and stability I’m developing is reducing my pain, improving my overall health and even delaying surgery. Anyone with chronic pain knows how amazing it feels to discover something that actually works, and Kinesio with Shireen actually works!Negar J.
The health care profession of Registered Massage Therapy is far more advanced than typical body work or relaxation massage. There is a misconception that Massage Therapy is purely a feel good stress relief treatment. Although there are Registered Massage Therapy professionals who work with stress related issues this represents a small percentage of treatments.
The ultimate goal of Massage Therapy is to improve soft tissue and joint health through the manual manipulation of soft tissue, connective tissue, muscles, ligaments, and tendons coupled with therapeutic exercise. There are numerous evidence informed techniques employed with the ultimate goal of reducing pain, speeding up injury recovery, and improving movement performance.
There is a significant and growing field of Registered Massage Therapy that is focused on pain relief, injury recovery, and movement performance. This is the aspect of the industry that painPRO is best known for.
