Natural Awakenings News: Troy Practices Combining to Offer Massage Therapy and Chiropractic
Donna Pascaretta

In December, Donna Pascaretta, licensed massage therapist and owner of Optimal Healing, and Dr. Kristy Bouchard, chiropractor and owner of Chiropractic Cottage and Wellness Center, will merge their practices. Both Pascaretta and Bouchard have advanced training and experience in women's health but also promote wellness and healing with professional customized care for the whole family.

“We both have over 20 years of experience in our respective careers," says Pascaretta. "I am so excited to be working with Dr. Kristy to integrate therapies for wellness. My passion is to help those on their journey to Optimal Health and we invite the community to experience our services.”

Pascaretta is a graduate of Wellspring Institute, where she learned massage therapy.

“My approach to massage is a gentle deep tissue technique that is very soothing," she adds. "The Wellspring philosophy is that massage does not have to hurt to help. Massage lotion is used with essential oils on a heated massage table and heated blankets for an hour of comfort and calming.”

Appointment times are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and some Saturdays.

The new location of Optimal Healing is inside Chiropractic Cottage and Wellness Center, 308 Town Center Dr., Troy. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Donna Pascaretta at 248-318-4149 or visit
