Had a lower neck/face lift 2 months ago. A friend recommended a lymphatic facial, had never heard of this procedure. Googled for places in Houston which offered this procedure and the best fit for... me was Carolina Pintos after all reviews. THIS HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE GAME CHANGER REGARDING THE HEALING PROCESS, scar tissue, swelling, lumps, etc!!! Can’t give this treatment enough praise. Extremely pleased w/my physician and nurse but why don’t they share this valuable information with the patient. 🤷‍♀️. Don’t even consider surgery w/out planning lymphatic drainage treatments for recovery - post op! Blessed to have found these amazing therapist! THANK YOU!read more

Carolina Pintos and her staff are simply the best! I was recommended her service by my Dr. due to her mobile services so I booked an at-home session. After a clerical mishap (which Carolina... corrected), I was issued a full refund with no questions asked; BUT, Carolina contacted me directly and INSISTED she provide me with her personal services free of charge in an effort to right the misunderstanding. Carolina drove to my house personally (an hour away from her own place of business) 4 separate times! After which, she insisted I come into her office for her to utilize her tools for scar tissue therapy. Her professionalism and commitment to customer service should be recommendation enough yet still, even those two strengths fall short of the type of work she offers. Carolina truly helped me heal! She is visibly knowledgeable in her craft as my results do not lie. I felt better and more normal after each session and while I will not state the sessions were always the most comfortable, it was worth each and every discomfort as I walked out of each session with more strength and less pain from my surgery. Please do yourself the favor of booking her services as you will not be disappointed. I will personally be sure to pass along her name to anyone in search of lymphatic and post-op treatment.read more

Amazing- three weeks post-op I went for first visit. I had some complications post surgery and was hospitalized for a week. So when I was going for first massage my anxiety level was still high. I... was in that mental space of what else could go wrong. When I called for appointment I was greeted with a very kind voice on the other end and she secured me a spot same day for that evening. My therapist was extremely kind and immediately put me at ease. The office was very clean and relaxing. She was very gentle and explained everything she was going to do. She talked and assured me I was on track with most patients they see at my stage. She also gave me information of a great place to go and get fitted for a faja. She listened attentively as ai expressed my concerns and the recent journey and experience. The owner was out that day due to her daughter being sick, but when I got settled in the room she called via FaceTime to chat with me and look at my surgical areas and gave recommendations on what techniques to do for me. I thought that was very professional and kind and showed she cared about her business and clients. My second appointment went just as well and I met Carolina in person that day. Again she assessed all my areas and recommended treatment plan. The office is a little ways out from me but I’m not going anywhere closer because of the attentiveness and awesome care they have given to me. I went to see my surgeon and reported how nice and professional they were. He said well be sure and let my front office know, we will definitely let our other patients know. If you just had surgery and looking for a place to start your lymphatic drainage massages , don’t look any further, trust me they are the best. I’m also in the medical field RN for 25 years and I’m very impressed at their bed side manner, knowledge and how they handle and cared for me. Very refreshing to find.read more

Carolina and her team are the only people I would trust with my post op treatments. Carolina is very knowledgeable and makes sure things are done correctly and effectively for you as an individual... and not generalize for every patient. They not only provide the best treatment per session, they also make sure to give at home recommendations or exercises, answer questions that I have during the week, and recommend the best products that can help me. They are truly people you can count on. The staff and environment is very welcoming and full of great energy. Emily in the front desk is the best ! She always work with my schedule for the best appointment times. I highly recommend booking in advance since the schedule fills up quickly!!(because they are the best!)read more

My first time ever receiving any form of post op therapy and I am so happy that I found Carolina Pintos Therapy. I was nervous, thought it would be painful BUT quite the opposite.

The office is beautiful, calming, in a great location and the staff are all wonderful and a special thank you to Carolina, the owner, who I had the pleasant surprise of having conduct my session. She isn’t just the owner and therapist she is a guide on this journey. Her guidance and recommendations are priceless. She doesn’t just treat you, and send you on your way. She is absolutely a diamond, and to her office manager Emily!!!! Emily is so welcoming and helpful. I’m will be coming here for years to come.read more

Carolina and her staff are AMAZING!!! Customer service is great. Everyone is kind as well as knowledgable. The establishment is clean with elegant decor.Now most importantly, they make miracles... happen! I had a lot of scar tissue after surgery and due to that my massages were extremely uncomfortable. The massage therapists were patient with me and they ensured that I understood the necessity of each thing they did. They gave me advice regarding steps I could take a home to promote healing. They also catered to some of my preferences regarding positioning on the massage table.Over time, I visited three massage therapist. Each of them were thorough and efficient. Carolina checked in during each of my visits to ensure that I was healing properly.I also love the point system they use which offers you the opportunity to get a discount after multiple visits. I love this place and would HIGHLY recommend them!read more
