My relationship with Paula began many years ago when she became my Chinese Medicine practitioner. Up to that point in my life, I had never had acupuncture as I was a needle phobic. I soon found myself booking in for acupuncture with her on a weekly basis and she was superb. I felt extremely privileged as her client as I was always the beneficiary of her quest for new found knowledge. I was therefore not surprised when I learnt that she was developing expertise in another field, Watsu. Nothing could have prepared me for the profound sense of relaxation that permeated my entire being after my first Watsu session. I was in such a deep state of complete and deep relaxation. It was an extremely wonderful experience and one I will never forget! Similarly, Paula decided to teach Yoga some time ago and what a superb teacher! She puts so much love, care, professionalism and expertise into her practice - her demonstrations were clear, she provided many important tips alongside watchful corrections to my posture. Paula is an extra-ordinary health practitioner!! She goes above and beyond. She is passionate about everything she does and her impact on my health and well being has been life changing!
I have been practicing yoga for almost 11 years. I’m 51 and not all yoga is "good for me". What an amazing find!! Paula's style of yoga incorporates other energy-based practices for an invigorating, strengthening and balanced workout. She is serious about her practice and leads a safe instruction. Paula is thoughtful, friendly and has a firm handle on what she is teaching. I would recommend her to anyone interested in expanding their practice. Thank you Paula, for bringing your unique style to the world. You are an inspiration!
I'm a double amputee and blind. I lost my legs after a train accident and it was after this that I met Paula, some 15 years ago. As you can imagine I suffer from chronic pain in my stumps, lower back, neck and wrists as I walk with prosthetic legs. Over these years Paula has treated me on a regular basis with acupuncture for maintenance on my wrists and lower back. The last few years Paula has given me Watsu which has given me considerable relief. The water treatment is wonderful as it provides total relaxation and releases my muscular tensions. Paula is caring, compassionate, professional and very knowledgeable and I highly recommend her as a total package provider. As a person with a disability I feel very respected in her company.
My wife Linda and I met Paula through attending her Aqua Flow and Qi Flow classes, listening to her wellness talk on oriental medicine and I also had an acupuncture session. We also had several opportunities to talk with her about a myriad of subjects related to our own fitness interests and about some of the medical challenges many years of competitive athletics has placed on our bodies. We found Paula to be very knowledgeable, but even more importantly, her warmth and caring style was conveyed in all of our time with her. She did a terrific job of meeting us where we were - working with and around some of our medical issues. She followed up with some emails after we had parted ways to give us some additional references .
My curiosity led me to attending Paula's Qi Flow and Aqua Flow classes on a recent vacation. What a lovely surprise! Qi Flow incorporated tai chi movements and Aqua Flow was a mix of yoga and tai chi but in water. I'd never done either before and felt like I did a descent workout but at the same time very relaxed. Paula's honest enthusiasm really helped me in the classes too.
Remy and I had such a wonderful experience with Paula in our various sessions. Yoga was amazing. I was against Acupuncture before our session as my previous experience was so bad and painful. With Paula, I felt no pain and had good results, I can sleep like a baby now. And an other amazing experience was the Watsu, I felt like a baby in the womb, full of peace and indescribable sensations. Thank you Paula, you are such a wonderful person and so professional.
I got to know Paula when she introduced me to acupuncture. I never forget that first session and the profound impact it had on my body as I left the clinic. I was so relaxed and in a trance-like state! More than 10 years onward, I still have acupuncture on a regular basis . . I had a similar and wonderful experience with yoga classes taught by Paula. Paula is not "just" a fantastic acupuncturist and yoga teacher, but a wonderful therapist and human being. She is extremely professional, always well prepared, and someone who listens and responds to and greatly cares for her clients. Her many strengths include her extensive knowledge, the ability to generate an environment of trust, to live what she practices and to be humble and always cheerful. Paula certainly has had a most positive and lasting impact on my life and health, and I am sure that others feel similarly "touched" by her.
I am so grateful to have found Paula. My teen daughter and I had multiple sessions with her which helped us immeasurably. She is an extraordinary acupuncturist who immediately puts you at ease with her intelligent open manner. My daughter had never had Acupuncture and was anxious and very apprehensive going into her first appointment. An hour later, she calmly floated out smiling, easeful and immediately asked if she could book another. Paula brings an attentive, intelligent, curiosity to your issue — she asks thoughtful questions that come from her decades of eastern and western medical practices and study and also from mindfully listening to you. She looks to find the root of your problem so she can treat the cause, not only the symptoms. Paula also has excellent follow-through. After my appointments she sent me multiple emails and diet suggestions to address other underlying issues she identified. It’s important to add — my daughter and I never felt a single needle! Needless to say, I strongly recommend Paula’s services to anyone seeking treatment for any condition. You’d be very lucky to have her brilliant skilled attention. She is one of those rare practitioners that you find and hope to always have in your life.
