Hello! I am Paula, thank you for visiting my website. I believe the power of touch can be nurturing and restorative. Getting to know my clients through gait assessment, verbal communication and various modalities of massage helps me to best assist and help restore and heal.
I am a musician. Music is the movement of sound through vibration(1). I believe that massage is the same: movement through vibration. Using long strokes on the body gives it the intended opportunity to restore itself. I have worked as a performer, pianist, choral director, and accompanist for 30 years; I understand the necessity to maintain proper muscle health to keep my body strong and able to withstand the strain of specific use for many years.
