Paul believes that while modern Western medicine is at the cutting edge of many new advancements in the medical field, many of the ailments currently seen may be very effectively and safely treated with Acupuncture and or Massage Therapy, proper lifestyle and dietary changes, with no negative side effects. Paul's approach is one of combining both Eastern and Western medicine and philosophies to maximize the benefits for each patient, ultimately to send them out of the office in a better state then when they came in. He specializes in treating chronic pain syndromes, musculoskeletal problems and stress. He is also highly skilled in Trigger Point Therapy as well as treating infertility problems, arthritis, neck and back pain, digestive and respiratory issues.
Paul is a compassionate and caring individual who listens to his patients and devotes his attention to that one patient for the entire session. He does not move between rooms or treat multiple patients at once and is committed to helping to improve the lives of each and every patient he sees.
Since 2002, I've worked with clients of all ages who are seeking massage for a variety of reasons. I remind my clients of the importance of taking time out for themselves, and cautions them not to wait until they are in pain to make their next massage appointment.
During an initial session with me, I will discuss the client's health history and areas of concern, and together design an individual treatment plan specifically designed for the client's needs. I'm committed to creating a caring atmosphere in which my clients never feel rushed or pressured, but can lay back, relax, heal and enjoy.
"I have a wholistic philosophy and believe in all things in moderation. I try to help my clients make connections between what they are experiencing physically and mentally with their daily activities and habits, to help them problem solve and to make improvements in their overall health and wellness."
