Specialized Protocol Optimizing Restorative Techniques Systematically
Initially servicing Houston’s active community providing Sports massage and advanced bodywork options, we soon recognized another populace not necessarily identifying themselves as ‘active,’ but seeking proficient therapists and adept bodywork. It was then we cultivated and incorporated our Therapeutic massage approach to expand our repertoire of services. At Kinetic Bodyworks, we take into consideration that your body is unique and each of your visits may present different issues requiring a combination of massage techniques. As a result, we developed a needs-based, effectual concept that allows our therapists to determine the best course of action for an optimal therapeutic benefit.

REHABILITATION – Administer prescribed or adjunct protocol for sports injury and pre/post surgical procedure. GO TIME – Receive specific techniques minutes/hours leading up to, during, and immediately after activity.
