About Us

At a very early age I realized I had a passion to help people thru massage. Starting simply by walking on my fathers back to release tension, then progressing to using hands and forearms on friends and relatives. It was only natural that I would find myself longing for more knowledge and training. I began training at Santa Barbara Body Therapy Institute with classes in Classic Swedish Massage. The more I studied and practiced, the more I wanted to learn. Always wanting to find more ways to help the body. Now with many classes and various modalities behind me, I am working on my Holistic Healthcare Practitioner certification. I find myself continuously taking new classes and workshops to enhance my skills and learn new techniques.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Absolutely the best

    Such a tremendous relief of my symptoms. I'm on my feet 8 hours a day, so this massage is very therapeutic. Can't wait to go back!

  • Loved it!

    I saw Paul because I've been having low back pain and bad, recurring headaches. He worked on me and he seemed to find every trigger point I had. He really knew what my body wanted and made me feel very safe in the process. I haven't had a headache since and back pain? Gone! I feel f*cking great after Paul worked on me!

  • Paul is the most skilled therapeutic therapist I know! What a discovery!

    Paul gives the most in tune massages I have ever received. His in depth knowledge of the body is so apparent with his touch and responses to muscle tightness and knots. He has helped not only with tired sore muscles but also to relive my siatica and scar tissue build up. He is amazing and I highly recommend him.

  • By far the best massage I've ever received. Not only was it enjoyable and relaxing but he was able to fix me! I came in unable to turn my neck and once the session was finished I had full range of motion in my neck. I will definitely be coming back and highly recommend.

Paul is so accomplished and professional. I already feel an improvement after one massage.
by Julie on Aug 20
Paul is a natural healer. He is taking classes on Anatomy as it relates to massage, and this translates well to his practice! My entire body is showing improvement with his massage sessions, which are just as effective as PT.
