I think Paula is good at what she does. She has alternative therapies that may seem a bit weird but the results are very good. And what I especially love is that she doesn't clock watch. She won't go way over the time you booked, but she doesn't just stop. She makes sure you're in a good place and that you got what you wanted. Strongly recommend.

I greatly appreciated Paula's great measure of care and involvement and the time she took to work with me and understand what was going on in my body, as well as the ideas she gave me with how to work with my health conditions on and off of the massage table. I only had an hour long appointment but she spent more than two hours with me and I left feeling great! Thank you

Paula is a gifted practitioner with great sensitivity to the issues of the body that cause discomfort and amazing at relieving those. She knows when to recommend further medical attention, but is widely schooled in alternative therapies. I always feel good when I leave.

I've been going to Paula for several years now. She's worked with me to keep me in shape for marathons and all sorts of physical adventures. She can read your body, work with you, help you to understand your body and goals, and make you and your approach to a healthy body and mind stronger.

This is my second appointment with Paula. She is very tuned in to the body and can "hear" where the achy spots are -- even if not previously known to me. She then gently or firmly ( whatever I am comfortable with) resolves the spot which somehow also provides relief to another spot ( somehow related). To me, I find Paula a miracle worker. I feel fantastic!!

Paula offers a comfortable, easy and nurturing environment and gives a customized massage. I had the 90 minute intense massage and felt significant relief afterwards. I will be coming back for additional sessions.

Service Received: Gua Sha Neck-n-Shoulders with Paula M.
Gua Sha is pretty amazing. Paula is the only therapist I've ever encountered who is a practioner. And she is expert. It's not necessarily a one shot fix, certainly not for my long term issues, but it works. Skin surface bruises can be a bit alarming, but don't be, it's part of the process. Of course, wait for resolution before setting another session. Paula is not your conventional massage therapist so don't expect a spa experience. You can expect to feel better and have a learning experience. If you listen to Paula and your own body.

Business response:

Thank you for the terrific feedback! For those that may be wondering what is meant by "bruises" - these are not actual bruises which only occur when blood vessels get broken, but skin coloration that naturally occurs, then later fades, during some gua sha and some cupping treatments. See website for more information about this helpful therapy and the redness called "sha."

I found Paula to be honest, sincere, very knowledgable and committed to actually helping her clients. She answered my questions during my session with thoughtful care and used her considerable experience to work on the issues I was dealing with in my body. She's one of those rare practitioners who clearly loves what she's doing and is invested in aiding others.

I've been going to Paula for about four years now, referred to by a friend. While Paula can help with aches and such if you view your visit as a one-off, her real assistance and value will shine through if you believe that what does and each visit you make is part of a process to make you stronger, healthier, more aware of how your body is doing, and what you need to do to maintain a vibrant life. She can read your body well, and help you help yourself. If you trust in her, her skills, and advice -- and I think many must keep an open mind about her advice as I have -- you will better be able to let her help and assist you, build you up, while you learn to do what you need to do to make yourself stronger outside visits to her office. As a runner who has been getting stronger and faster every year into my 40s with her assistance, she has been a very positive force in my life. I would highly recommend going to see Paula -- but listen, trust and think of going to Paula as a step in the right direction. She certainly can take that kink out of a muscle, but trust me, your body is likely to have more going on that you think. So trust her...ask her for her advice. And say hello for me while you're there...
